3.0 out of 5 stars Mildly amusing, 11 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Repetitively pejorative and short of intelligent observation. I'm well minded to go along with the bulk of what this is attacking because most of the bible (or the Koran) is pre-historic savagery and stupidity bound up as a belief system but this could have been a much more useful and entertaining document if it hadn't simply been aimed at the intellectually bereft.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bought this for my wife for a mackerel fishing trip., 11 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Well, it's not the top of the market but she wound in about two dozen big fat mackerel off Dunbar and a good few more off Oban. For the occasional fisher lady, for the occasional trip, a no-brainier. Very cute too.

Very easy to unwind and wind in and packs away very neatly and seems quite robust. Perfect accessory for caravaning or a small garden.

I'Ive used this for hauling heavy logs over a ton in weight out of a wood so if all you want to do is tow the car I think you'll be ok.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good quality - but, 11 Nov 2012
Lousy instructions. One page of the instructions shows a door closer with both adjustment screws at one end and another with one at each end. The machine comes with both adjustment screw at one end. Consequently, it's not until you get it fitted that you spot that the diagram for fitting it to the door has it the wrong way round.
It'll do your head in fitting it but as with all Draper gear it's good quality.

3.0 out of 5 stars Woeful packaging, 9 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As with other reviewers, this would probably get a five-star rating because it's a very sturdy box and looks as if it'll do the job in the unlikely and unfortunate event of a fire.

However, the box was delivered to me only in it's display packaging, a box of thin corrugated cardboard - you know the sort of thing - with no padding around it whatsoever. Now, it's a heavy brute with an Amazon sticker on the box indicating that it should be a two-man lift. Well, Amazon use vans with only one driver and no crew - get the picture? The result, I imagine, is that van drivers are not too gentle with such a small but densely heavy item.

Mine has just come out of its inadequate box with three shallow dents in the top, nothing that I think will affect performance so I can't be bothered to ask for a replacement but it would be nice to get a domestically important item like this properly packaged and in mint condition. When you consider the disgustingly, wastefully, over-packaged things I've received from Amazon such as small electrical items in giant boxes with tons of brown paper, you'd think they could get the finger out and pack a thing like this properly.


The Allotment Book
The Allotment Book
by Andi Clevely
Edition: Paperback
Price: 10.49

5.0 out of 5 stars And not just for allotment holders, 11 Jun 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Allotment Book (Paperback)
A very nicely thought-through book, well written and beautifully illustrated. Not just the usual dry 'how-to' information but full of helpful hints and shortcuts as well as the odd recipe. All in all, a very enjoyable book, far more useful and more fun than the average turgid tome of gardening facts.

If I had a criticism it would only be that this is as much a book for anybody with a half-decent-sized vegetable garden as it is for an allotment holder so a slight revision of the title might be in order because I nearly didn't pick it up when I was looking for a vegetable gardening book for my wife. Absolutely the most useful, and equally importantly, enjoyable gardening book I've ever had my hands on.

5.0 out of 5 stars A lifestyle, lifetime purchase..., 20 Nov 2011
A lifestyle, lifetime purchase...
These were a wedding present, wanted by the bride because she knows the set we've been using for thirty-odd years.
Totally indestructible, almost always non-stick and easy to clean when gunked up with burnt stuff. The only way to cook.

4.0 out of 5 stars A bit expensive..., 20 Nov 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A bit expensive considering it's only plastic but it seems pretty robust and they (I needed two) came very well packed indeed. So, expensive for a plastic doofur but I couldn't find them cheaper anywhere else.
