1.0 out of 5 stars Mine's a dud., 10 Aug. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Product worked well for a couple of weeks, but now will not vape sub-ohm tanks whereas the same tanks used on my other batteries (iTaste MVP Pro @ 15W and iTaste IV at 12W) work well.

I'm returning it tomorrow for a refund.

The new 'super stable' 3D is simply stunning, playing old games on the system makes them feel brand new.

It's awful. Too small to be held comfortable; the USB cable is very short and the variable-voltage just doesn't work.

I'd rate it 0 stars but at least the seller delivered promtly.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not firm at all!, 7 Feb. 2013
This review is from: Morinaga Tofu Firm 349g (Misc.)
It's not firm thus unsuitable for stir-frying - be warned.

Japanese 'firm' tofu is not like the firm tofu one would buy from say, Cauldron foods, or find in Chinese supermarkets - in Japan, such tofu is called 'cotton pressed'.

It's only useful for miso soups, or blending with other ingredients.

This review is from: Aerobed Sleepeasy Airbed (Sports)
Having had several nightmarish experiences with blow-up objects, many of which are not sold on amazon, I was very impressed by this product.

Great suction/inflation. Satisfied in a minute.

Product deflates very fast too; nice bag included.

1.0 out of 5 stars 1 star for packaging awful product ingeniously to consumers, 25 Aug. 2012
Absolutely dreadful.

The package proclaims that rather than using refined sugar they use "Organically Grown Corn Malt Syrup" - i.e. artificially made high-fructose corn syrup - how this can be healthier than natural sugar from sugar beet or cane sugar (sucrose) beats me.

As for the taste - well just imagine boiling up a packet of cheap noodles, adding tons of soy sauce and hot water to dilute. That's it. Oh and add a dash of manufactured high-fructose corn-syrup too.

I'm amazed that Clearspring, a company I've had high regard for, have produced this awful, way over-priced product.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best!, 12 Oct. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Although not vegan (I eat some fish, dairy products and eggs though never meat) I found this book marvellous.

You will probably need a well-stocked health store or supermarket to get some of the ingredients, but if you have an Asian/Chinese supermarket then you'll find all the ingredients easily and pretty cheap too. Once you've got the basic ingredients (most of which last for year or more) the rest is just buying in-season veggies, etc.

Most of the recipes are simple to prepare, which is a boon compared to some other Japanese cook-books where you can spend 5 hours in a kitchen preparing the ingredients and cooking!

I'd like to see an update of this book - there are so many other meat-like substitutes available commonly these days which easily can replace some of the ingredients.

It's a brilliant introduction to Japanese cooking, showing how it need not be too fussy to prepare and cook. I'd recommend it to anyone who likes Japanese food, even meat eaters.

Oh, and you'll lose weight eating this sort of stuff regularly and generally feel healthier.
