Ceylon Orange Pekoe Loose Leaf Tea - 500grams
Ceylon Orange Pekoe Loose Leaf Tea - 500grams
Offered by Blend Coffee Shop
Price: £12.70

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth the price, 25 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This has a lovely flavour, I prefer earl grey though, but I'm glad I tried it.
If you like Orange Pekoe then this is definitely one to get

What made this a great purchase is not only the Tea, but the really nice person I dealt with when sorting out a payment issue.

I'd recommend this without reservation.

Really nice tea large leafs and no dust, Tastes just how an Earl Grey should.
Like it so much I have enquired about a larger order.

4.0 out of 5 stars Big enough for a large balloon whisk, 16 Nov. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Adding a picture so you can see the size of this, (yes christened with Cauliflower cheese)
Big enough for a large balloon whisk, and with the rounded design means no messing about scraping the sides with other utensils.

13.5 inside bottom
15 ish middle bulge
14 inside top

Just over 1 liter when full, So with sauce in and enough room for to move it around you will be looking at 700 to 850ml max depending on viscosity, and veracity of the stirrer...

4stars - because they don't make a lid, and with it being ovenproof, having a lid would have been very useful, I'll have to buy a spare elsewhere.

Apart from that it's nice and heavy, may tip on a gas stove, until you have some weight in it, so watch that. or use a metal plate underneath, but should not be a problem.
Nice finish, and handle is better and more comfortable than the picture shows.

Expensive - yes, but you always cook, unless you have a chef, and do you really want to buy cheap thin pans every few years for the rest of your life? Or do you want 3 or 4 really nice solid ones that will last you.

Buy a pair of £10 boots every year, or spend £70 one a pair that last 10 years....
Do you want to be the guy that after 10 years has spend £100 and walked about in bad ill fitting boots that leaked, and has nothing to show for it now. Or do you want to be the guy that spent the past 10 years with clean dry coddled feet inside good quality boots and still has them now?

Pans are the same, thin ones stick, don't transfer heat, don't hold the heat. hard to clean, bits fall off, handles knobs, you don't want to lose a knob now do you?

Here are two other pans that I would recommend (frugal but still on the side of lasting )

De Buyer 5110.24 Carbone Plus Heavy Quality Steel Round Lyonnaise Frying Pan, 24 cm Diameter
8 Litre Stock Pot Casserole Pasta Pan with Glass Lid

May have bought the larger one with lid, but just couldn't afford it, this one will do the job and worth the £20.38

2.0 out of 5 stars Lasts a week if your lucky, 16 Sept. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Not that good, the coloring came off in a couple of weeks It's just a spray of paint on the end, it peel's off making a mess everywhere.
Then the actual file surface just wares out, you'd have to buy one a week if you wanted them to be useful.

So look nice, but totally useless for purpose

5.0 out of 5 stars Application tips, 16 Sept. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought just enough, but messed up the first two, so have a second one on the way.

Really nice colour, matches my fridge, cooker, washer, micorwave etc, so looking like a normal kitchen, instead of the rented crappy cupboards.

I found this method to be ideal.
Cut out piece using Knife, blade type, extra width if you can, and 10mm longer.
Clean dry and dust free surface.
Peal the smallest amount, until you have it peeled back all the way along the top,
you should be able to hold it in two hands with the materiel between thumb and forefinger and the peeled backing held with the other fingers.
What you need to do now is fold over the backing, just enough to get it out of the way, pulling it tight and rotating you fingers should do this.

OK, now just offer it up to the surface and place down so that it starts to stick. As soon as you can get on hand free, press down on the "middle" - as this is the point that needs to stick first. (You don't want to stretch it at all) Once the middle is attached, you can pull off the edges and re-attach if you think necessary.

Right, so you have it stuck a few mm across the top, and behind it is the backing, bent over like a little wave, you're almost done.
Grab a wallpaper brush or similar soft wide flat item.
All you have to do now is place the brush in the middle and swish it from side to side, the paper will unpeel underneath and the surface will stick as you go.
Just keep an eye on the backing, as that will tell you if you are going down level, ie if it sticks out one side, do more swishing the other side, you don't want to end up with it going down askew.

Once done this way, its totally bubble and crease free and smooth one you have done one each other will take about 20seconds to unroll down.

Take out your utility knife again (the sharp blade one) angel slightly and run down the edges it will trim cut the sides, top and bottom.
Then grab a wooden spoon or piece of wood/plastic, and run down the edges again at an angle to burnish them slightly and make sure they are well melded in so as not to get caught.

That's it job done.

Came with rust spots and pitting on surface, so not impressed with their stock,
but as it needed sharpening anyway, I buffed those out.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not identically matched base and eyelet = worthless, 9 Aug. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The Anvil, round base. is not quite the right size for the eyelet, resulting in a mashed up base.
I tried 15 times, and have yet to get a satisfactory finish. ie one that won't cut your fingers if you run it across them.

1.0 out of 5 stars It's so bad I had to return it immediately, 8 Aug. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It's so bad I had to return it immediately.

Only buy this if it's under a fiver inc postage, and it's for a child to play with.

I could go on about the rusty, misshapen tarnished loose fitting sockets
Or the Rachet handle that is bent, and so loose that there is room for a planet orbit in the degrees of slack rotation.
rotating the ratchet, it was like rubbing misshapen rocks together.
Even the foam is misshapen and tissue thin, they saved every single penny they could.

My fault for buying it - impulse buy - due to amazon recommendation

Seriously it only cost me £10 for a better set, and it lasted 25 years,
This one lasted 14 seconds until I opened the box.

Pros:
So much wobble in this that you wouldn't need a flexible adapter
Ability to use rench around corners due to bend in head
Easy to make thermite, as the sockets will be powdered rust in a few weeks
Doubles as a doorstop while waiting for return to Amazon

5.0 out of 5 stars This is actually very good, 22 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
You can use this everyday,,, do you vacuum every day now?

With this though, you will, just sweep up with a brush, and use this in place of a dustpan, with hard floors this combination is awesome.

Normally getting out the hoover, plugging it in, then trailing the wire everywhere, and the noise and moving stuff around, well no more of that just pop this off its stand and a quick suck and you are done.

Not sure about cost of a new filter, but looking at it, you could modify the filter receptacle easily to use any suitable material you have.

Power is fine will easily suck up a bic pen top for example - dam now I've got to empty it..

Battery, really don't matter it lives on the charger so unless you use it to excess or for unintended purposes this will be fine.
