Useful ebook, gets you up to speed quickly. Would have liked to have seen a bit more info on printers, but otherwise excellent!

5.0 out of 5 stars Good value for money and rock solid performance, 23 Mar 2014

If you need a high quality, secure wireless router, but don't require gigabit speeds, then this little Cisco is well worth considering. Mine has been running perfectly for over 6 months with zero downtime, slightly better than the BT homehub it replaced!

The features are everything you would expect from Cisco, with nice easy web-based management and decent VPN.

All in all a really nice little router that won't disappoint.

2.0 out of 5 stars I expected more from Tefal, 28 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Tefal make some really decent kitchen products, unfortunately this isn't one of them! As a previous reviewer pointed out it has a tendency to splatter when using in the pan to puree sauces or soups. My previous blender was a Kenwood which didn't have this problem, as a result I have returned my Turbomix to Amazon for a refund. Time to save up for a Bamix I think!


Wusthof East / West Universal Knife Sharpener for European and Asian Style Knives
Wusthof East / West Universal Knife Sharpener for European and Asian Style Knives
Offered by culinaire
Price: 19.99

1.0 out of 5 stars Very unhappy, 21 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I suppose I should have known better than to sharpen expensive Wusthof cutlery with this Chinese made piece of junk. Ok so it puts an edge of sorts on the blade, but the course side very roughly shapes the edge leaving it scored and marked, the ceramic rods actually made the blade duller! I had better results with another well known brand of pull through sharpener and a couple of swipes of a Wusthof steel. I have returned mine for a refund, will be buying a ceramic honing rod and Wusthof whetstone - may as well do things properly!


Kitchen Craft Master Class Deluxe Traditional Carving Fork
Kitchen Craft Master Class Deluxe Traditional Carving Fork

5.0 out of 5 stars Very nice carving fork, 21 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have had this carving fork in my wishlist for around 12 months, I wish I had bought it sooner now as it's a really nice item. The fork is very high quality, and is a good size, it compliments my Wusthof carving knife superbly. It actually looks nicer than the pictures, which don't really show the quality of build. Highly Reccomended!


Lodge Round Skillet with Handle, 26 x 5 cm
Lodge Round Skillet with Handle, 26 x 5 cm
Price: 27.22

5.0 out of 5 stars Superior cookware, 14 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have wanted a cast iron skillet for a long time now and finally decided to take the plunge; have to say I am very pleased with my purchase. The quality is superb as you would expect from Lodge, and the results speak for themselves. Cooking a steak in this pan beats any non-stick as far as I'm concerned. As long as you follow the cleaning instructions properly and oil the skillet after use you can't really go wrong. Lodge has a selection of videos on their website showing how to care for their cast iron cookware, and to be honest it's a doddle! Just get one, you won't regret it!

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good introduction, but needs updating, 9 Aug 2013

This is a good intro to servers and basic server admin, but like all things IT, it's now out of date as it does not cover Server 2012.

This is an excellent book,it outlines complete strategies for passing the CCNA exam. Whether you choose to do the CCENT/ICND2 route, or take the single exam for CCNA Routing and Switching, this book will help you plan your study and make the most of your time. The authors are both double CCIE certified, so they are eminently qualified to advise on Cisco certification.


Le Creuset Cast Iron Round Casserole, Satin Black, 24 cm
Le Creuset Cast Iron Round Casserole, Satin Black, 24 cm
Price: 108.80

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential cookware from Le Creuset, 2 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have been wanting a Le Creuset cast iron casserole for a long time now so finally took the plunge and ordered one from Amazon. Really wish I had got one ages ago, this is now probably the most useful pot in my kitchen. I have used it to make all sorts of dishes from Beef bourguignon, cassoulet, chilli con carne, to braised beef brisket, it truly is a versatile pot. In terms of quality, well it's Le Creuset so I need say no more. All in all an excellent purchase that will last many years.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quality cookware from Tefal, 15 Sep 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a real step-up in quality from the less expensive Tefal pans. I had been looking for a new wok for a while and had considered this one as well as the Raymond Blanc Anolon version. Having had the chance to handle both pans there wasn't much between them in terms of weight and quality, but this one wins on price - at 25 from Amazon it's a steal!

The non-stick is very high quality and is described as safe for metal untensils (apart from knives or whisks). In use it cooks to perfection on a low to medium heat, Tefal's heat spot is a useful guide to avoid overheating the pan. It washes up perfectly by hand every time.

All in all this will make a fine addition to any kitchen and with the right care should last a while. Highly reccomended!
