4.0 out of 5 stars "Makes an Artisan Shaped Loaf", 3 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Nice and deep...once baked, the bread just slides out of the tin, with very little help needed from the baker...I would have given 5 stars had the tin been constructed with no internal seams...Little "bits" do get stuck in the corners and therefore not the easiest thing to get 100% clean...that said said, I do recommend this bread tin, I'm pleased I bought it, if only for the great shape it creates...

5.0 out of 5 stars "King of the kitchen Gadgets", 11 Nov 2013

This review is from: Matstone 6 in 1 Juicer in Ivory
The title says it all...the Matstone juicer is a Great piece of kitchen equipment...it's very study...looks great on the kitchen work top and very functional...a Juicer Plus...mince with it...grind coffee beans with it...make pasta with it...and more...!!!

As regards to design, so far, I can only find one tiny, tiny fault, one could say, it's hardly worth a mention, but I'm going to give it a mention just in case the design guys are reading this...and the more info you have before you buy, the better ...because at close to £180, its not cheap...the aperture for the juice, is slightly too close to the outlet for the pulp....when placing the two plastic containers underneath the drum to catch both of the above, there is little room for error, so you need to make sure both containers are lined up correctly...

I have read other reviews on here, that say the "drum guide" is too small...personally, I don't find this an issue...any way, there is a reason for it not being Big...the bigger the drum guide, the bigger pieces of friut / veg will be pushed down into it...not good for the motor or any other rotating parts...be kind to your new kitchen gadget...smaller pieces of veg mean longer life of machine....

to sum up, I would say...

Very easy to use...very easy to clean...very easy to re-connect / put together after washing
one of the best kitchen gadgets I have bought so far...very pleased with it and would not want to be without it...
it comes highly recommend...if your are thinking of buying a Juicer...buy this one...you will Not be disappointed...!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous..., 27 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
a great addition to my kitchen gadgets...mashes potato like you cannot imagine...amzing...!!! I would almost have bought it for this one function alone...it's unbelievably quick and the potato is sooo smooth...in addition, one has the ability to mash the potato in the pan you cook it in...great stuff...!

it's a nice contemporary design and comfortable to hold
it's a shame the plastic bowl, was not constructed of glass and had it been a tad bigger, that would have made it perfect....I have yet to still find the perfect chopper...if you are not very careful, it will obliterate the veg you want to chop...may be I need a bit more practice at that...it is a powerful piece of kit, so be warned...:)

In summing up...
the positive's out weigh the small down side's of this tri-blade blender/masher/mixer. I have given it 5 stars, because I think the more one uses it, the better it will become...go for it...I'm sure you wont be disappointed...osie

4.0 out of 5 stars a Great mixer..., 27 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
the title says it all...a Great mixer...! comfortable to hold....solidly built...powerful...not too loud...easy to use and change the mixer blades...the thumb slide power adjustment is positioned well...it looks good on the work top with it's very contemporary design...

however, there is one small downside to the design, and is the reason, I didn't give it 5 stars...you cannot wind ALL of the power cable around the body, I think there should be better images showing this, or it should be in the write up, so that at least you know before you buy...at this price (and it's not cheep) the job only looks half done, and I feel just a tad cheated.

so come on kenwood, get your tech guy's back to the drawing board to design a housing within the body where one can Completely conceal the power cable...you would then deserve 5 stars...! with all that said, I am still very pleased with it, and because of it's capabilities, it still come's highly recommended...osie

5.0 out of 5 stars You Wont Want To Stop Cooking With It...!!!, 23 Mar 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
In this review I'm going to write about one small negative first...then go onto a truck load of positives.

The "lid stand" for all makes of Halogen Ovens, seem to be constructed in the same way.
You slide the lid in between two formed , shaped legs, not easy when you first try, but you do sort of get used to it. This is the third Halogen Oven I have bought. The first was so noisy I needed to wear ear defenders...the second got so hot it sprayed metal filings from the fan down into the food...neither should have made it pass the manufactures back door, needless to say they were promptly sent back...

I now own one of Thee Best additions to the kitchen...!!! The Andrew James Halogen Oven...
to say I'm really, really pleased with it, is an understatement. I Love it ... Not only does the contemporary design look great on my kitchen worktop...it does exactly what it says on the box...it's so simple and convenient to use...It's so quick to heat up...so easy to clean...it puts the fun back into your cooking...just watch as your sausage's brown...you can even watch as your cakes rise...!

With This model you get a whole host of accessories...including.....lifting tongs...steam tray...baking tray...lid holder which is very handy for placing the lid onto when hot...the instruction/recipe booklet from the manufacture is very basic...an Andrew James recipe book is also thrown in...this one is much better...with loads of tips and recipe's in it. I think I'm right in saying this is the only oven that comes with a spare heating element...

For me one of the best accessory's, is the extender ring. this gives you extra hight to the oven, for cooking those slightly bigger chickens ect...simply place the extender ring on top of the glass bowl the lid then fits onto the top of the metal extender ring...Simple...! having used this extender ring, I would not want to be without it...all of the above is included in the price...when you consider you have to pay extra for most of the above with other makes of oven...this one...really is...great value for money...!

So far...I have cooked...medium size Roast Chicken...Roast Potato's...Sausages...
"STEAMED" Carrots/Potato's/Cabbage/Peas/Green beans/....."BAKED" Potato's/Vanilla Sponge/Cup Cakes/Carrot Cake/Cheese Scones/...All with Great Success...!!! it steams vegetables beautifully...just place your veg in some tin foil then drop in a table spoon or so of water close the foil up tightly and in about 20 minutes eat and enjoy...! some foods...but not all...cook faster in a Halogen Oven than they do in a conventional one...

the best advise is...a little trial and error will have you using this oven like a pro in no time...Like anything new, it will take you a little time to get used to it...but when you do...you will not want to stop cooking with it...!!! it's the best thing since sliced bread...
oh by the way...I'm going to try some of that next...!!!

To sum up the Andrew James Halogen Oven.....it's Brilliant !!!...dose exactly what says on the box...I'm giving it a big...9 out of 10...if the "lid holder" had been better designed it would have got full marks...but don't let one little minor point put you off buying this Extremely Versatile Multi Functional kitchen appliance...because it dose come Highly Recommended...I now have a conventional oven for sale...if any one is interested...!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars "Almost Perfected Perfection"...!!!, 29 May 2011
Think I'm in Love...
with The Thinnest...Slimmest...Sleekest...Sexiest keyboard I have ever had the pleasure of using...and with Looks to match Angelina Jolie...!!! yes, that's right, I can only be talking about Logitech's Solar Powered K750 Keyboard...!!! No more Batteries...Cordless...and...Solar Powered...what more could one ask for...

Set up...
could not be any more simple...helping to keep the planet green...Logitech has put much thought into what they are doing...No CD...No Booklet...information is printed on the inside of the packaging your key board arrived in...very good Logitech...I like it...Plug in a small USB Receiver...switch on the key board... automatically download the software needed...way-to-go...!!! Everything else you need is on Logitech's website...Troubleshooting...Product Support...Support Community...and more...

Quality...Design...and Great Style at it's best...
if you appreciate good craftsmanship, you will love Logitech's K750 Solar Powered key board...it just oozes quality...at an amazing 7.5mm thin, it still feels very solidly manufactured...I have lifted it up one handed from one end of the key board, with no signs of flexing whatsoever...I applaud the design guys working for Logitech, they have come up with a very fresh, very contemporary and well thought out design, while keeping the functional side of things at the top of their list... they seem to have...Almost*** perfected perfection...

The low profile keys...
give the user a very smooth and quiet operation...no matter how fast I type, I cannot see any time lag in "key" to "screen" operation...with an array of short cut keys across the top adds a tick in the right box...The ability to customise or should I say personalise the short cut "F" keys is yet another...tick in the right box...buy it...and you will see...!!! (separate download needed from website for that operation)...underneath the key board you will find two legs one at either end to pull out just in case you prefer to tip the keys towards you on a slight angle...

The power...
with a one touch operation, you will see on screen, how much light your key board is receiving, and how much back up power you have in store...in Logitech's write up, it is said to last for a whopping three months if you were to use the key board in total darkness...!!!

Almost*** "perfected perfection"...
OK...this is just a small thing, but thought it worth a mention...if you want to increase or decrease the speaker volume, you hold down the toggle key while pressing F10 or F11...now then...my thought is... if the numeric keys on the right hand side of the board, were set in from the edge of the board, towards the Left lets say, by about one key space, there would then be enough room for a volume control, just like Logitech's diNovo Edge...just slide your finger up or down on the key board to control the sound volume...Perfected Perfection...!!!

The price...well...I think for what I have have here...having on numerous occasions, caressed it...Looked at it...admired it...stroked it...cleaned it...having used it and tested it...Logitech could have easily added £20.00 or more to the price...I also have a Logitech "DiNovo Edge and when I purchased that little beauty it cost me £150.00. and you have to charge a battery...!

So to finish on a positive...
the K750 Solar Powered Keyboard from Logitech...is in my opinion...a Super Build...oozing with Quality...and a good spec...it's a great piece of hardware...it really is a dream to use...even if your typing speed isn't up to two hundred words per minute...!!! Congratulations Logitech...I think you have a winner...I await with bated breath and much anticipation...for the arrival of your..."Solar Powered Pen and Graphics Tablet" for all us Boys and Girls that play with software such as Photoshop or similar...Now that would be a God Send...don't you agree...?

Have a nice day...The Photographer on The Isle of Wight UK...
