Salter Stainless Steel Electronic Digital Kitchen Scales
Salter Stainless Steel Electronic Digital Kitchen Scales
Price: £18.71

4.0 out of 5 stars nice and sensitive but reliable, 30 Jun. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
First of all, the scales I received were different from the ones in the item description but I'm guessing this is just a slight model variant.

Mine arrived in black with a red LED display. First impression was they looked a bit cheaper than the ones in the picture but having used them a few times they seem well put together, nice and sensitive but reliable. It's a god send being able to put a bowl on them, turn the scales on and the weight reading zero, i.e. taking the weight of the bowl into account so you can then add your ingredients.

Comes with a 15 year guarantee which is very simple to register online. This is nice and reassuring that the scales will be as hard wearing as they are handy.

Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is the perfect rainy day book for our 4 year old who is about to start school and is currently getting introduced to counting and simple grammar at pre school.

We took him to see the film when it was out at the cinema, his first cinema experience, so this was an immediate hit and the short stories throughout made perfect sense to him and provide a nice break from the activities.

The activities are great, simple at first, and there's loads of stickers which are also always a sure fire hit with my son.

Brilliant little book which is perfect for keeping your child entertained on a quiet day or perhaps a long trip.


Dirt Devil 11-in-1 Steam Cleaner, 0.33 Litre, White/Red
Dirt Devil 11-in-1 Steam Cleaner, 0.33 Litre, White/Red

4.0 out of 5 stars this is an excellent lightweight steam mop which is easy to use, 28 Jun. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
First and foremost, this is an excellent lightweight steam mop which is easy to use, reasonably sturdy, particularly at this price point.

It's easy to assemble out of the box. Took slightly longer to warm up the first time but quickly it was kicking out a decent amount of steam.

I use this to clean our karndean tiles in the kitchen which are constantly getting dirty with us having young kids. The mop is an easy and thorough way of getting the floor squeaky clean.

The design of the mop head is paticularly pleasing with a triangular tip for getting into small spaces and a swivel joint to turn the point into the angle required to reach those nooks and crannies.

It's simple to fill up and operate. Has a handy cord tidy clip and stacks away in the cupboard nicely. The mop pad (and a spare which is a nice touch) can just pop in the washing machine when dirty and comes up nice.

I've used it a couple of times in the steam cleaner mode. It comes with a number of attachments, the brush and wire brush ones in particular are quite handy for cleaning the hob.

Not sure how to use the window squeegee attachment, maybe it's just a standalone window tool....not sure, the instructions are pretty brief!

The unit kicks out seemingly even more steam in this mode and generally it does a half decent job on tiles and the cooker. Most jobs however still need a bit of elbow grease and a cleaning product. Not sure if this is normal for a steam cleaner, it's the first time I've used one and I imagine a higher priced unit will probably do a better job.

I'll definitely use it as a steam cleaner for the occasional oven de-grease. It's mainly just a decent steam mop at a bargain price!

5.0 out of 5 stars This is a wonderfully stylish pen, 20 Jun. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I ordered this for work as I'm sick of turning up to meetings with a dog eared biro.

This is a wonderfully stylish pen, gorgeous burnt orange colour with the classic brushed chrome top.

Slightly smaller and lighter than I was expecting but this is a good thing as it clips nicely on the side of my little notepad I also use for work.

It has a nice solid feeling click action to bring the nib out for writing and it writes nicely and smoothly.

It also comes in a nice box which will be a bonus if you're buying it as a gift.

Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a good quality leather ball, size 5 but nice and light so it's good for youngsters making the step up.

It's really brightly coloured so will be perfect for winter months or those summer nights where kick abouts go on into the dusk of late evening.

Great solid choice as you'd expect from mitre. Well stitched, good quality leather which feels like it will last well. Another 5 star football.

Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I ordered this for my son based on wonderful nostalgic memories of kicking around in the school playgrounds with this type of moulded rubber ball.

It's the perfect "training" ball for kick abouts, all weather, all surface, perfect for playing on the concrete without the ball deteriorating like a leather one will. I have fond memories of always having one of these balls outside in all types of weather and it still being in great condition once retrieved out of a hedge or tree.

The up to date model I've received gives me the same amount of confidence that it will stand up to all elements and the onslaught of abuse it will receive over the next few months and probably years. The dimpled effect is great for control, as is the almost sticky feel to the whole ball.

Gold standard ball for general knock-about sessions!


Rapid Supreme Omnipress SO30 Fullstrip Stapler (White/Pink)
Rapid Supreme Omnipress SO30 Fullstrip Stapler (White/Pink)
Price: £21.95

5.0 out of 5 stars As good as a stapler can get, 15 Jun. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
If our looking for just a great 'standard' stapler then look no further than this one.

It's solid, sturdy and punches though 30 sheets with ease. I've tried other types with more of a punch action which make it even easier to take through large documents but for regular to heavy use this does a great job.

It's got a pleasing action which means you can push anywhere along the top and it still works, this makes it easy to use either desk top or in hand.

The design is lovely. This particular one has a nice white and shocking pink stripe design. Very modern looking in a world of boring office supplies.

By far the best feature is the flat lie of the staples once used. It means that if you're stapling a set of sizeable handouts, which in my sales job is a regular occurrence for me when preparing for presentations, it just makes the pile of documents a lot neater and keeps everything nice and flat rather than the bunching up in the top left hand corner you get with regular staples.

5 stars for this product, really pleased.

Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a great package of lovely nivea products that would make a really nice gift for someone who travels away or maybe someone about to go into hospital, operation or into labour, as it's a nice set of clean and simple products in a handy bag.

The bag itself is really good quality, leather effect and a nice bright purple with sturdy handles and a simple but strong velcro fastening at the top. It will make a great travel bag well after the products themselves have been used.

Inside you get the following:

- Essential care lip balm - nice shea butter balm stick
- Sensitive Night Cream - light cream yet provides intensive moisturising
- Sensitive Day Cream - everyday moisturiser with factor 15 sun protection
- Soft Moisturiser - good for hands
- Shower Cream - a nice big bottle of moisture rich shower cream
- Bath/Shower Puff - small and gentle with a silky blue strap
- 48 hour roll on anti-perspirant
- a handy pack of face wipes - fragrance free

Really happy with all the products and the amount of stuff you get. Highly recommended....

5.0 out of 5 stars So easy to use, 8 Jun. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I'm a big fan of this sun spray. So easy to use, sprays on nice and even and feels light and non sticky. It dries nice and quick but still giving enough time to spread the lotion across the area you're looking to protect.

There's no particular strong smell and I haven't noticed any significant marking on clothes.

A great choice for quick and easy sun protection!

Rapesco X5-25ps Less Effort Stapler - White

5.0 out of 5 stars This is a fantastic little stapler, 1 Jun. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a fantastic little stapler. It's really stylish and I love the white colour and overall design, but that's not really why you order a stapler is it?....the good news is that it performs perfectly. Nice and easy to load up, just pull back the top handle and slap a strip of staples in.

It's got a really easy to use action, punches through a decent wedge of papers without any effort. I was using it on a presentation with 14 pages and to test out its limits I stapled 2 of them together (28 sheets) and it just about punched it through, again even with that many sheets it was zero effort to use.

It's a smaller size than normal which is also handy for keeping it tidy in drawers or popping in a bag if you're using it for school or college work.

5 stars for a terrific product!
