Vicks V-610E Warm Mist Humidifier
Vicks V-610E Warm Mist Humidifier

2.0 out of 5 stars Fine once I got it to work, 23 Oct. 2011
I had a bit of trouble with this product, the valve which releases water into the heating chamber is released by a spring. The spring was compressed too much which meant that the water wasn't passing through into the heating chamber and so no steam was being created. Once I'd scratched my head and worked out the problem, then fixed it, it worked fine. The only other issue I have with this is that there is quite a lot of mineral built up on the heating element which is quite hard to get off. Other than this, it works well to keep the air in the room nice and humid. I would recommend getting a humidifier, and this one does the job as well as any.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loud, 11 Oct. 2011
This review is from: Gelert Chrome Bike Bell (Misc.)
This is a really lovely bell, it has a nice, long, old-fashioned "trrriiiinnng" sound which is certainly loud enough to get you noticed

4.0 out of 5 stars Great, 11 Oct. 2011
These are good gloves, very hardy fabric, large size for large hands (so often gloves aren't big enough) and the right price too!

5.0 out of 5 stars Delicious, 11 Oct. 2011
I love this stuff! I tried it first at a distiller's fair in Edinburgh and have been hooked since. It is just the loveliest cream liqueur- its so creamy and tastes of honey, without losing its whiskey flavour. I am a big fan and would recommend. Don't fall into the trap of thinking it's just like Bailey's either... it is so much more!

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing fun, 6 Oct. 2011

There is very little not to like about this game. My only criticism is that it isnt that easy for speakers of foreign languages (perhaps unsurprising) and that some of the people in the people category are pretty obscure, especially if you're not from the UK. My family gets around this by allowing an extra 'pass' on the people category

5.0 out of 5 stars Credible and Readable, 6 Oct. 2011
If you're studying economic geography this man is a GOD! he has written prolifically about the matter and is indisputably the authority. This is the bread and butter of studying globalisation

5.0 out of 5 stars Everything I hoped it would be and more, 6 Oct. 2011
I saved up in a penny jar for years for this little beauty and she hasn't disappointed. What a fab machine. To be perfectly honest, you're paying for the style if you choose a KitchenAid over a Kenwood, I've used both and they are equally efficient and marvellous kitchen companions. I couldn't have lived with myself if I'd compromised on beauty though, because they're way too heavy to move, and the kenwood really isn't as good looking as the KitchenAid. I love the cream colour, and I love my KitchenAid and I'm looking forward to many decades of cooking and baking with her. I would thoroughly recommend, 5*s!

5.0 out of 5 stars great size- nice storage solution, 13 May 2011
received this for my birthday recently, and am over the moon. Its kenwood so i know it's good. great little machine that does the job of an electric beater, a blender, and a processor all in one. It has a really clever little clip on the mixing bowl that means that you can store it all together (like in the picture). love that the chopping bowl is a decent size- in the past i have had stick blenders with chopping bowls that werent big enough to make breadcrumbs!

5.0 out of 5 stars good looking little kitchen clock, 13 May 2011
love it. only concern is that the bell on the timer is a bit meek - i like a bell with a bit of 'oomph'- but if that's the only problem, i'm a happy lady.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thought provoking and charming, 25 Feb. 2011
Loved this. Not only was it a great story, but it had a great character and was 'unputdownable'. It was something that really shines a light on all that is wrong with western women in the 21st century.
