Hotpoint Dishwasher Cutlery Basket C00063841
Hotpoint Dishwasher Cutlery Basket C00063841
Offered by EL Lewis Home Stores
Price: 5.86

4.0 out of 5 stars Hotpoint Cutlery Basket for slim-line dishwashers, 17 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was very satisfied with the purchase and delivery of this item. However, Hotpoint need to reconsider the design of this particular item. The constant pressure of cutlery on the base of the basket causes it to disintegrate too quickly. It would be much better to provide individual slots of items of cutlery right across the top of the basket (such as those already at the sides). The basket would need to be a bit deeper than at present to accommodate the length of the knives/forks/spoons handles.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cryptic crosswords that make sense, 3 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As usual this is another collection of The Times Cryptic Crosswords to wake up those brain cells and provide a challenge. I never go away on holiday without one of the series - just to keep the old brain from rusting up!

5.0 out of 5 stars A great read, 3 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sick Heart River (Kindle Edition)
John Buchan at his best. A story of immense courage and fortitude in the face of impending death. And an exciting adventure into the bitter Canadian north. It's not often you find a book that is totally devoid of smut and innuendos - what a treat. I'll read it again, and probably again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Birds in the garden & birds in the kitchen, 3 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Good value and takes up very little wall space, while there is plenty of space to make notes beside the dates.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good value for a lot of gigs, 3 Feb 2014

My only disappointment is that the hole for inserting a hanging cord is too small, so it could easily get lost.

4.0 out of 5 stars Keeps birdfood dry, 3 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A good inexpensive way of keeping birdseed dry - fairly easy to assemble, once you have figured it out. If a 78-year-old lady can do it, it can't be too difficult! The bird population in my garden has increased quite markedly since I installed it.

5.0 out of 5 stars ALL THE MOD CONS, 23 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This product seems better than I had expected. I like the time-switch control, and the separate foot-warming section is brilliant. Just what I need! No more waking up in the small hours in a sweat because I dropped off to sleep before turning off the blanket - it does that itself.

5.0 out of 5 stars A riveting read!, 20 Feb 2012
If you are someone who finds history boring, you'll change your mind after reading Mangalwadi's all-embracing account of the growth and development of the world in which we live. It is obvious that extensive and meticulous research has gone into the creation of this book, which has been presented in a most readable style. It is a "must read" for all seekers after the truth. I have it in book form as well as on my Kindle.
