5.0 out of 5 stars the only peeler I will ever use., 10 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
There are two ways of peeling potatoes and vegetables. You can peel towards you or away from you. The latter is the faster and more efficient method and is more popular with men that with women in my experience. For this method of peeling the swivel peeler is the perfect tool.
With a good grip and very effective, perfectly balanced blade I would never use anything else.

5.0 out of 5 stars Takes all the punishment, 10 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I keep two sets of pans, one set that only I use and I keep in pristine condition and the other set for the family to scrape, burn and otherwise abuse. For the second set, I buy cheap pans that I can throw away and replace on a regular basis. This frying pan was bought by me for the family to abuse but I find myself using it as a first preference. Even though it gets all the ill treatment meted out and thrown into the dishwasher on a regular basis it remains in perfect condition, has maintained its non-stick coating and it is still a pleasure to use. It is a useful size and a good weight and it heats the food evenly.
I use it on an induction hob.

I hope it is available again soon and is still as good value.

4.0 out of 5 stars good looker and pourer if a little noisy, 5 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have never had so many compliments on my choice of kettle. For me, the biggest factor in choosing this was to have a kettle that pours without spilling and with the well designed handle and spout this does it so much better than most jug kettles. The lid is easy to take off and replace using the elegant finger ring. It boils quickly enough although it is little noisy. It looks great and I was delighted to get the green model which does not seem to be available in most shops. It matches beautifully with the toaster from the same range. I am well pleased.

4.0 out of 5 stars almost perfect, 2 Oct 2012
A lot of thought has gone into the design of this iPad cover. It looks smart and is also functional. All the ports, switches and sockets can be used whilst the iPad is in the cover. The lid folds back on itself to provide an excellent stand for the ipad for use in two different positions depending on whether you want to use it on a desk or standing to display films/photos. Apart from one small problem it is perfect. The lid tucks into a flap at the back to hold the ipad at the desired angle, but it has a tendency to slip out of this whenever moved. Some velcro or clip would solve this.

4.0 out of 5 stars Quality and well designed, 2 Oct 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The Cosatto Noodle Highchair is easy to assemble and is a well made, quality product. The seat height can be adjusted to suit having the baby next to a dining table, coffee table or even sofa. The removable tray feature is good for cleaning. My only criticism is that it does not fold away and so takes up more space than some others models when not in use .

3.0 out of 5 stars slow and uneven, 22 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It looks lovely and has a pleasing and practical design. It is an advantage to be able to toast 2 slices at a time rather than all four at once. There are two problems. It is very slow and the heating elements are unevenly powered so it tends to over cook one side of the toast whilst under cooking the other.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not robust, 22 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A lovely design but ruined by the lid hinge being very fragile. This broke when using the foot pedal after only a few weeks. I need to find a bin that is more robust and fit for purpose. Waste of money!

4.0 out of 5 stars quality, 17 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have a mahogany dining table and my previous table mats did not provide sufficient insulation to avoid hot plates marking the wood surface through the mat. These mats are thicker and cork backed and the quality is worth paying for. They protect the table. They look elegant although rather unexciting in design. The simplicity can be a feature with the right tableware and centrepieces.

Overall I am very pleased.

4.0 out of 5 stars robust, 8 Mar 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I needed good range to cover a large building and good battery life. This system delivers on both. The robust handsets are a pleasure to use. Caller recognition and ring tone choices are as expected. The programming is easy and one handset can be copied to the others. The only annoying omission is that the caller categories are not transferable from one handset to another so each handset needs some individual, time-consuming editing before they ring in unison to identify the type of caller.
I bought this product knowing it is more expensive that the alternatives and I believe it is worth it.
