5.0 out of 5 stars Charger, 8 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Years ago I was buying replacement Li ion batteries and chargers for lots of money.
I was sceptical that this charger would adequately replace the original the dog (labradoodle cross cockerpoo; adorable, any offers)chewed. It does seem to be the same item!
All is well. (dog, charger, lap top).

5.0 out of 5 stars original key for existing locks, 8 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Era 581-56 Window Key
Being made of cast aluminium these can fracture.
The solution is probably to buy a couple of these and to be more careful in future.
I'm in trub for only requesting one when two or three would have been better (same postage)

5.0 out of 5 stars Typical Rick excellence, 8 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Rick Stein's India (Hardcover)
I ordered this pre-publishing based on my love for his other books.
As seen on the Beeb Rick spends time with expert locals and gleans their trusted secrets and techniques.
The result is a book packed with authentic recipes which actually work; similar to the hairy bikers book.
I can now do proper Tikka with a decent sauce, veg, rice and breads, ultimate street food are all covered.
I won't need another curry cook book....unless Stein has a jolly somewhere else

2.0 out of 5 stars agree, flawed, 25 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It does do the pasta rolling function quite well. However during its second or third use a ? ball bearing (ovoid in shape ?!) did burp out from between the rollers and i guess if it was supposed to be in there in the first place it must have a function; despite which pasta still rolls out ok. Customer services responded quickly to my anxieties by wanting a picture of the offending bearing...(it's 3-4 mm diameter, not quite round, not quite shiny, magnetic and is in the bin).
More to the irritations Kenwood want lots more dosh for attachments to cut the pasta sheet into spag, tag, or fettucini.
Buy a rolling pin.

1.0 out of 5 stars low capacity, 14 Dec 2012

sounds like a good idea, especially if you can't bend or turn easily. Sadly it's so puny that even a morning mist will defeat the blades and it becomes more hassle than it's worth.

3.0 out of 5 stars pretty purple, pretty average, 14 Dec 2012
The unit is really cute visually and from the tactile aesthetic. The plastic/rubber, purple or other vibrant colour (or matt black), will marry well with your toaster, mixer or other kitchen accessory.
I don't know why but it's really indifferent in grinding coffee or any other spice you might want to pulverise. ? speed/power/blade sharpness or dynamic.
In retrospect I would sacrifice style for function; then you would get the proper cup of coffee or the real massala. (clean between uses :-) or get two cheaper Andrew James/Krups/Tefal....

3.0 out of 5 stars lost ball bearing?, 5 Sep 2012
This attaches nicely to the slow output drive and produces good and thin rectangles of pasta. Dissapointingly, to cut the sheets into spaghetti or tagliatelli Kenwood want to sell you another attachment...
The rollers spat out an egg shaped ball bearing but the function seems intact; Kenwood customer support wanted a picture of this but I'm afraid it's lost. Also don't let anyone wet clean this attachment. For a lot less money a hand wind machine would be best.

2.0 out of 5 stars one blade at a time..., 24 Aug 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I favour Bosch and usually look for well reviewed products. This is dinky and mates well to the telescopic handle (which came a few weeks later). However it fails miserably at cutting the grass edging, which was the reason I bought it. Not sure now what it migh be good for.

2.0 out of 5 stars not for me, 26 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: View from the Surgery (Paperback)
Sorry Ken but I didn't enjoy your book; I guess it's not intended for doctors, bit like James Herriot wasn't aimed for vets - it looks like you seem to have pleased the majority of reviewers though. Anybody want my copy?

5.0 out of 5 stars New skills, 23 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book complements Dr Bowling's talk (google PCDS).
My only problem, as an older Dr, is that I need to see lots of dermoscoped lesions to become familiar with their characteristics. So unless you are doing regular clinics with an expert and have histological feedback the learning curve is steep.
