Zyliss Coarse Grater, Acid Etched

3.0 out of 5 stars Does the job, 10 Oct 2013
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I love Zyliss Garlic presses and thought that this would be yet another great product - however it's more along the mediocre line...

If you want to have good graters I would always recommend going down the MicroPlane route in all fairness and I say this because I have tried a few times to use this for grating parmesan cheese, what you get is more cheese strooned around the worktop than on the plate and it kind of ends up as flakes, great for carrots and other veggies but not an all round grater in my opinion! One bonus is that the cover goes on and off easily.

1.0 out of 5 stars Drawbacks and poor app, 26 Sep 2013
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Everything with this seems to want you to pay the 35 extra cost for the optional extra features, the app itself that you get off the app store for free is pretty lacking, this also nails your iphone fairly quickly and your left with half a baby monitor system , not one I would either spend much time with or waste any money on in fairness!

5.0 out of 5 stars Sturdy, 26 Sep 2013
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
A very sturdy ball head that hgas many features, adds a bit of weight if youre going on a trek but performs well in many differing weather conditions. the level sensor is very handy but the only real downside is the fact that you have to have quite a good strong hand to use it, if youre female with small hands be warned this will take its toll quite quickly on you. Other than that cannot fault it but ensure you have a good tripod to put it on!

5.0 out of 5 stars Heavy on Batteries but great girders, 18 Sep 2013
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Each unit takes 6 AAA baterries, this is somewhat a standard for electronic pepper mills so I cannot mark them down too much for that, improvements on battery front would be good though. The units feel nice to hold and grinding is quick and efficient, these benefit from not getting too clogged up underneath when grinding over a bubbling pan, they wipe clean very easily and are also quick to replenish with salt and pepper.

Long gone are the days of using twist to grind or other manual methods, the fact that they are also the leading brand means you know you've got a product that will stand the test of time, rather than putting salt and pepper in each I actually have black pepper in one and a mixture of green, white, black and pink pepper corns in the other as I tend to sprinkle sea salt in my food. Cannot fault these beautiful grinders one bit. A must for any cook.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb Trimmer, 18 Sep 2013
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is such a compact great to use trimmer, whether you're doing a full bearb, goatee or just side burns it will cut to the desired length quickly and to perfection. The dial on the front allows adjustments from 0.2mm to several mm just by turning the dial. the top plastic part clips on and off to allow you to use the smaller more defined trimmer for more detailed trimming tasks.

Battery life is superb and it also charges up pretty fast too, off one charge I have used this for side burn trimming every few days for over a month, I cannot fault the unit apart from the fact it doesn't stand upright of its own accord!

4.0 out of 5 stars Sound better than they look, 28 Aug 2013
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
When I say they sound better than they look I don't mean that they sound amazing! To be honest they look pretty appauling, the overall appearance is the huge plastic ear pieces and almost seems irrelavent that they have a metal headband... This aside the sound that comes out of these is pretty impressive for the price, fairly deep base and clear treble notes with above average clarity. They are fairly comfortable for a period of time up to three hours even for a spectacle wearer.

Now the fact they don't fold down nor have they got any easy fold away wiring system this is what lets them down for me, however upon comparing them to a set of 130 Denon headphones the sound is fairly similar, save your dosh and get these if your not going to wear them outside of the home, if you want to pose in them I'd suggest getting something with a little more street cred unless I'm off the mark of plastic being in fashion... Very good and would recomend every time for sound alone.

3.0 out of 5 stars Almost there... Has flaws though., 1 Aug 2013
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
On the description of the item it seems better than what you actually get, my iPhone 5 almost fit snuggly but the top left hand side was not quite in the rubber seal as the rest seemed to fit - wouldn't have been too bad but my black iPhone has seen a little wearing of the thin galvanised finish so you can clearly see the silver colour of the aluminium next to the seal.

All of the button still work well, although getting to the mute slider is a little awkward. My main gripe is the fact that it will only charge your phone by 60-70% from being dead and the fact you can only charge it via Micro USB cable! Why could this not have been powered by both Micro USB and Lightening connector, if I go abroad and want to charge it I now need to take more cables than just my standard iPhone lightening cable!

It's light in weight and serves a purpose but you can't put your phone in when you don't need to charge as my phone got hot constantly be charged when not required, a switch on the case to state Charge Now would be far better.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very handy, 1 Aug 2013
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
A very useful gadget that saves a lot of time as opposed to using scissors, the device features sturdy changeable heads for length of cut required. The device fits very well in the hand and makes the task in hand a breeze. A very attractive colour, lasts for ages and not very noisy - what more could you want!

3.0 out of 5 stars Useful information although more pizza ideas would be preferable..., 1 Aug 2013
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I was really looking forwards to receiving this book as I do like making my own pizza bases and cooking from scratch, what I found to be a little lacking was ideas of pizzas - the ones included seem to be the standard ones in Italy that the chaps discovered on their travels (less than 20). Showing a little ingenuity and creating some of their own ideas would be great.

What I did find really good was how to get the stone baked crispy base with cooked toppings in minutes using a frying pan then hot grill. The information on stretching the pizza dough instead of rolling was really cool, however this should really have been displayed with far more pictures as reading it leaves some imagination to those that have never practiced this method.

The rest of the book features some great italian recipes but overall I wanted more in the way of pizza's that the book looked to cover.

3.0 out of 5 stars Cables too short, 1 Aug 2013
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
A reasonable product that could do with the added addition of subwoofer control, the speakers have a volume cord which is too short and the cables that attach all the speakers are again only just long enough which causes issues trying to put them in place without having to disassemble your entire computer desk / trolley.

The clarity of the little speakers is good but the bass from the sub is not loud enough making you have to setup equalizers in iTunes or the like in order to get the required bass, the speakers all in all did not meet my expectations (a comparison to a ten year old set of Yamaha speakers of similar cost).

I didn't have too much joy figuring out the bluetooth but once sorted could add a little value to what is a standard set of speakers, the fact they're black is ok too. All in all a reasonable set of speakers but didn't blow me away.
