Bialetti Tuttocrema Frother

5.0 out of 5 stars So Simple, 23 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
So simple to use and froths milk very well. Just bung it on the hob for a few minutes before you use the Nespresso machine. Use a strong coffee and you end up with an excellent Cappuccino

2.0 out of 5 stars Not E.F. Benson's Best, 16 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As a Lucia fan, I was hoping that Paying Guests would be as funny. Maybe I have overdosed on E F Benson, but this does not seem nearly as funny as any of the Lucia novels.

5.0 out of 5 stars First Shoe Purchase Online, 26 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was worried that these shoes may not fit as I believe I am somewhere between 44 and 45 size, depending on the maker. However, I was delighted to find they fit excellently and as are as comfortable as the ones I bought in the USA some years ago and which had finally given up the ghost., having been worn most days.
The delivery was almost immediate.
I now feel more conifident in buying shoes online.

Service kit was very expensive, but it did the job and I now have a shower that doesn't leak. It arrived by post on time.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
After my last liquidiser, this seems very fragile. However, it hasn't broken so far and does the job very well.

But does the job of keeping my car clean. Good value. A little shapeless, but it should take any sort of trolley.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Sound and Useful Sleep Function., 10 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The radio looks good and has good sound. I bought it for the sleep function, which is excellent, allowing me to fall asleep without it being on all night. Only four stars as the display is too bright in the dark, when the radio is on and there is no way of turning it down.

4.0 out of 5 stars A well written record of what really happened., 10 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I got interested in this action, after holidaying in the Medoc and seeing the monuments to the marines involved. If all you know about this excercise is learnt from the film "The Cockleshell Heros", then you should read this book, which shows very clearly what really happened. It is well written and quite an exciting read, if at times, being almost too detailed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating, if Depressing Reading, 4 Nov. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book explains how politicians follow only short term goals, the main one being to get re-elected. The economy needs long term decisions and these are constantly being fudged and avoided altogether. In consequence, we have got deeper and deeper into debt as a nation and politicians, being the cause of the problem, are unable to be the solution. The book suggests what needs to be done, but pigs might fly before they are, hence the "depressing" in the title of this review.
