5.0 out of 5 stars Super Hot Deal!, 16 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is everything I hoped it would be. It started with super quick delivery - 2 days from placing order. Very well packaged and easy to assemble. The only fiddley bit is putting on the burner arms - 3 arms with 2 little bolts that need to be tightened with small spanner key provided. Quality is very good - it feels robust, solid and well made. Once assembled the tripod is very stable and holds the massive wok securely. I choose to attach a clip-on gas regulator (as that's the kind of propane cylinder I have for the bbq- the wok comes with a screw in regulator) - again a 2 min job - rub a little liquid soap on the connector so it slips on easily and tighten the clips with a flat blade screwdriver. Now to fire it up... Turn the switch to prime a little gas in... then turn again to ignite. A very satisfying jet thrust burn can be heard at max setting - and wow... What a heat! Now about the wok - it's huge, which is great for holding your food in a single layer across the wok giving the desired high heat contact. I don't think you could use this wok on a standard gas cooker easily (definitely not electric as its round bottomed). Because of the size I started the seasoning process outside with a bucket of hot water a scouring pad and some bar keepers friend cleaner - this removed the protective coating but took a fair bit of elbow grease. I then rinsed and dried it out on the wok at full heat. Using oven gloves I rotated the wok over the flame so that all of it was heated ... Even after cleaning I could see a little smoking of the protective oil burning off. Next I let it cool, then put the oven on max 250C. I then coated the wok (inside and out ) with rice bran oil and put the wok in the oven for an hour ( I have 90cm wide oven and it only just went in at an angle (too big to sit flat). Once cooled I fried off a big bowl of sliced onion for 15 mins pressing it into all the area of the wok - the onion was then discarded. The result, a not too shabby patina to start cooking. I've since cooked chicken, noodles, rice, egg, peppers, bean sprouts, chilli, ginger and none of it stuck in the wok. I'm using rice bran oil which is very glossy and has a mild and attractive smell at high heat. It's great to do this outdoors, with no worry about mess or smell and plenty of room to work. Its like being your own street food trader. If you fancy this kind of food at home then go ahead and get one, it really isn't difficult with a well seasoned wok and good heat. Millions of people in Asia cook this way... So can you. Enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars A brush with quality, 16 Sept. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I think these are the happy balance between price and quality ( assuming you dispose rather than spend ages making a huge mess cleaning them) the real cheapie brushes just shed bristles - these don't and they provide an excellent edge for cutting in. I've just bought another pack and will get more- they deliver really quick and go through a normal letterbox

5.0 out of 5 stars Super Sound Square, 16 Sept. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is fabulous for the price. Feels solidly built and is nicely packaged. We took this on holiday and it was perfect for sitting out on the terrace on an evening streaming Deezer playlists - sound quality is surprisingly good - runs for ages between charges and so easy to pair- simple and intuitive. As its the size of a ring box it's super portable- honestly why spend any more for your secondary listening device.
