WEBBOX CATS DELIGHT LICK-E-LIX WITH CHICKEN 5 X SACHETS
WEBBOX CATS DELIGHT LICK-E-LIX WITH CHICKEN 5 X SACHETS
Offered by EXPRESS PET SUPPLIES
Price: £2.95

1.0 out of 5 stars With so many good reviews, I thought this would be a great ..., 17 Mar. 2015
With so many good reviews, I thought this would be a great success with our 2 cats. Unfortunately they wouldn't even taste it. Cats are very unpredictable with food. Disappointed. It looks like a very thick, brown gravy. Seemed to be a tablespoon in each sachet, so an expensive treat - worth it though if your cat will eat it and you can hide medication in it. Cost is £1 in supermarkets, but of course, you need to pay the postage on here which makes it more expensive.

Two cats, neither of them will touch it. Shame, so many good reviews, thought it would be irresistable but it isn't. Cats!

5.0 out of 5 stars If you can get them at a good price they are great, 2 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought these when a lot cheaper - change the name, rebrand and then charge more for the product..... If you can get them at a good price they are great. Quick protein if you are in a hurry, tastes fine, easy to carry around. Too expensive atm.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great, handy little bowsaw, 2 Aug. 2014

Great, handy little bowsaw. Useful for those hard to reach branches. Small and agile to fit into hedges etc. Already replacing the blade though and it hasn't done what I would consider a lot of work. However, pleased with purchase and would buy again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Useful tool for cutting straight edge on material for curtains/blinds, 2 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Good, heavy and solid right angle. I needed something to help get a straight line on material when cutting for curtains/blinds. This does the job very well. Place the frame on the edge of the material then use another metal straight edge underneath to follow the line across the width of the material.

4.0 out of 5 stars Use an alcohol wipe, 27 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Good screen protector. Right size. But although the kit comes with 6 screens (great value), a wiping cloth and a small piece of card for attaching the plastic, it comes with stickers that you are supposed to use to remove dust from the camera screen before attaching. I have just put a screen on a mobile - that one came with an alcohol wipe to remove all grease from the screen before attaching. ie wipe with alcohol, then use wiping cloth, then attach protector..... removal of grease is essential before attaching the protector! One star removed because of lack of alcohol wipe.

3.0 out of 5 stars Could be better, 2 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Wanted something stronger to replace a roller blind pull that was corded and kept slipping. To be fair, the description is accurate (although the mechanism is also plastic). It does say that the Silver Chrome covers are 'effect' ie, plastic. I always fit my blinds inside the window recess, not outside. If you are fitting the blind to the left and right recess of a window you would not be using the covers anyway as you will screw the long side of the metal bracket straight onto the wall. Another glitch to be aware of... I was replacing a mechanism that was located very high on the (recessed) side of the window (ie not fixed to the top of the window recess and hanging down). To lock the control mechanism in place (if you don't it will simply fall off)you have to slip a very small piece of white plastic over the piece of winder that sticks out (you can see it in the photo just above the coil of chain) and hook it over the bracket..... I am sure that wouldn't be any problem at all if you are fixing outside a recess, but inside is a different matter.... took two screwdrivers and a lot of patience to lever the piece of plastic into position. I can't see the small white piece of plastic in the photo. When the kit arrives the silver effect covers are clipped onto the metal brackets..... they do pop off (used a screwdriver) but there is a worry that you will break the plastic cover. The chain is a good quality metal. Standard location of screw holes because I was able to fit the brackets where the others came off. Would I buy again? Yes because I can't find anything better on the market. There has to be a niche here for someone making good quality metal fixings for roller blinds.....Please click on the helpful button if I have been of help!

4.0 out of 5 stars A very useful purchase, 16 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I can recommend this ruler. I was looking for something more reliably accurate than my wooden metre rule (which I think has a very slight warp to it, putting out my calculations when making curtains/blinds. One side slopes to the fabric which is great for accurate marking. As others have said it comes with an annoying blue piece of plastic attached with a plastic rivet which took a while to cut off! An excellent rule, wish I had purchased ages ago, but I could never decide which one to buy! Recommended and it is a very reasonable price too. One star dropped because of the annoying plastic, but that's minor.

4.0 out of 5 stars Best Iron So Far, 4 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from someone who used to hate ironing! Really hate it. I always had Tefal irons before and more top of the range so not cheap. Dropped the last one, broke the bottom moulding so the hunt for a new one started. Was going to replace with yet another Tefal but after reading reviews on this one, decided to give it a go.

Took a long time to take a chance (let's face it, that's what we do after reading the reviews!) on the Philips Azur, but it really is good.

First the bad points (what iron could be perfect when you hate ironing?). I was surprised that so few reviewers on here mentioned the noise the iron makes. Maybe their old irons were the same (the Tefals were never noisy)? The Azur is fine when horizontal ie ironing, but when it goes upright there is a loud sizzling/steaming/crackling sound, presumably when the water remaining inside hits the metal plate. It doesn't last for long though, but it does happen every time the iron is placed upright. This really annoyed me at first, but the Azur irons so well that I have to forgive it this irritation.

Another oddity is the handle which feels slightly oily even though there is no oil on it.

The other major problem (as many other reviewers have noted) is the red on black for the heat dial/controls. If your eyesight isn't what it used to be then watch out, you really will find it hard to see the dial settings. Not a problem for me as I iron most items at the same temperature so don't need to change it that often.

Iron reaches a good temperature. Haven't needed to put it on top setting yet and advise starting low until you get a feel for the thermostat on it.

Good length of heavy cable. Some reviewers don't seem to like this. I don't find it gets in the way at all.

Iron plate is a good shape, gets into all those angles.

Would I buy it again? Yes, without a doubt. I used to hate ironing (specially cotton shirts) but this makes the job so much easier. If you have the right tool for the job, it makes the project so much easier and enjoyable..... although I still don't like ironing, this great iron has made ironing a little less of a chore.

Price at the moment on Amazon at £39.99 is the best I have seen..

I dropped it one star simply because of the irritating steam noise.

If I have helped you make up your mind about the iron please click on the 'was this helpful to you' review button. Thanks and happy ironing!

4.0 out of 5 stars samsung Tab2 10.2 cover, 6 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Spent a long time researching the best cover for my Galaxy Tab2.Couldn't find many on the shops to look at and would have had to take the tablet with me.

So many reviews say that the covers bought didn't fit properly. Problems included the camera lens/speaker being covered. Even the best one said you had to charge with the cover open.

This is the genuine Samsung cover. Make sure you purchase the right cover as the Note is larger than the Tab2 and wont fit this cover.

All slots for camera, cables and speakers in the right place. Tablet fits comfortably in the solid back and the base cover does not clip over the tablet (something I didn't want) but sits flush with top surface. The top cover flap has a magnetic strip which keeps it in place when folded under for the typing or reading angle.

But, the flap does not attach itself when closed with either a clip or elastic band. The design also means that the tablet is not completely enclosed on 3 sides which may let dirt in. I will be buying a slim pouch with zip for when it goes in my bag. Would I buy again? It was expensive but I have not had any problems with the fit.

It can be charged open or shut.
