I've been using this for over a year now and have lost nearly 3 stone - started at 13 stone and used almost daily for 30 minutes at a time. Still in the same excellent condition that I bought it in. Would recommend to others.

No idea why Annabel Karmel books sell so well - so much is 'lifted' from other writers whose books were published years ago and now outdated.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous Book, 18 Sep 2010
I bought this for my daughter and it's a brilliant little cookbook; each page has coloured photos of the finished dish. This is a new (2010) and considerably updated version of 'World Cookbook' - infinitely better than the old one.

I love this steamer and use it every day for great healthy cooking - the oval design is so much more flexible than a round steamer. It's simple to use and easy to store - perfect!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book!, 7 Sep 2009
This is a brilliant book, but as the previous reviewer says it isn't exclusively for slow cookers (this is made perfectly clear on the cover). Loads of one-pot dishes that you can make ahead and leave to cook without further attention.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic fun gifts!, 3 Oct 2008
I have to completely disagree with the buyer who wasn't pleased with these and was 'ashamed to give them as gifts' (I think she received a 'duff' batch - there wasn't even a trace of glue showing on mine) - I ordered two different types for my teenage daughters and was really pleased with them, especially considering the price. Mine were immaculately made with perfectly placed lace cuffs and delicate tiny necklace beads and would have been delighted to give them as presents (I really hate anything slightly 'cheap-looking' or tacky). I thought the boxes were just about okay, but you could always wrap them in some pretty tissue paper and a gift bag if you find them offensive!


The Turbulent Term of Tyke Tiler (Faber Children's Classics)

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant book, 21 Jun 2008
Deserves its status as a 'modern classic' - should be read by every 9-10 year old (and every narrow-minded teacher - see above) who thinks that only boys can play football and that all little girls wear frilly pink dresses and play with dolls! Entertaining and thought-provoking.
PS the theft of the £10 note is not seen as 'cool' and much of the story revolves around Tykes effort to return the money to its rightful owner.

This is the best cookery book I've bought in years! It has the perfect balance between healthy eating and foods that children enjoy and has lots of nutritional tips and recipe variations. Packed with recipes - about 80 in total - including a few for those who are dairy intolerant. Worth every penny!

Contrary to the review above, I adore the recipes in this book. However if you want to live on a bland boring diet, don't bother! Some of the recipe titles sound quite exotic, but 'Vermont baked custard' is simply a baked custard flavoured with maple syrup, 'hoki fish balls' white fish (recipe states you can use haddock or cod instead) in an easy tomato sauce. Other recipes include Lancashire hot-pot, tapioca pudding, baked stuffed apples and chocolate chip and banana pudding - this book offers plenty of basics and plenty of slightly more exotic recipes to choose from.

This is an absolutely fabulous cookbook with easy to follow recipes which work well and stunning photographs to accompany them. Maybe the pictures are a little aspirationsl, but who would want otherwise?!
