5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic coffee machine, 2 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
We bought this several months ago to replace our Gaggia Titanium coffee machine which we had had for about ten years and it was uneconomic to repair.
To be honest in a way I am rather glad that the Gaggia did break down as this machine surpasses it in many ways. It is far easier to adjust the strength of the coffee and the amount per cup as this is done with two dials on the front, also the steam production is vastly superior. The Gaggia steam jet was messy and frequently jammed up, this unit swings out so you can heat up the milk easily in a jug. It is also far easier to clean. The water tank slides out to the front, so no scrabbling around the back to get to the tank, also the beans are easily topped up from the top. Like wise clearing the dredger involves pulling the unit out to the front. The coffee it produces is superb I would never go back to the Titanium again, for a start this unit is about half the price and is just so much better.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for feed bins, 2 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These are great value bins, which were delivered really quickly. I have had them a few weeks now and they are great for what I wanted them for. I store the various feed stuffs for our equines, they are located in a semi open barn so stored food will always susceptible to rodents. These have very secure lids and require some pressure to remove them, there is no evidence of any rodent infestation to date and I am very pleased with them.


Shires Ragley Lined Leather Headcollar

5.0 out of 5 stars Good value leather headcollar, 2 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have bought this in full size for my Friesian and small pony size for two jenny donkeys. Its padding makes it comfortable for them to wear, without buckles imposing on noses. Its easily adjustable to get the correct fit and the buckles are not fiddly like some synthetic headcollars are.
When it arrived it was already quite supple, but with a quick treatment of tack conditioner made it even more so. I don't think it can be beaten for the quality at this price. Highly recommended

2.0 out of 5 stars Fell apart after four uses, 14 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I suppose for the price I shouldn't have expected too much, but after the second use the head detached, simple repair thanks to a twist of wire. However on the fourth use the prongs sheered from one side and twisted open rendering them totally useless. Unless you are only going to rake something with no resistance at all I would not recommend this item at all

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent brushes, 27 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have bought many different types of brushes to see the best results as we have a huge amount of painting of our renovated house to do. I have found that these are by far and away the best brushes for use with eggshell on our handbuilt kitchen, wood protection on our oak doors, and cutting on of emulsion. They are very easy to clean and perform far better than those costing considerably more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Our dogs love them, 27 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have bought two of these for our collies to try and persuade them not to sleep on the sofas! They are thick enough as they are, but I chose these large ones so I could fold them over and prop one part against the wall so they could snuggle into them. Our dogs have never had their own beds before but love these, so much so that I have bought two of the red ones for upstairs!

5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely coat hooks, 27 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
We wanted something stylish and in keeping with our newly fitted kitchen in our very old farmhouse. We bought three of these and they are fitted above the radiator just inside our back door. They are strongly made and the hooks far enough apart to easily hang two jackets and a hat. Highly recommended

I chose these to go with the two part knob as I wanted something a different for our new kitchen. They are substantially made and sit solidly on the drawers and look fabulous.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very pleased with their look, 27 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I wanted something a bit special for our brand new hand built kitchen without paying a small fortune/ I chose the knob for the doors. They have been fitted over the Farrow & Ball colour French Gray and the look fabulous. They are heavy duty and won't be going anywhere for many years. Great supplier as well, when I had a small problem with some of the knobs they couldn't have been more helpful

5.0 out of 5 stars Stylish keyholder, 27 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As we have several lockable doors we needed somewhere to hang them rather than just in a pile. We chose this one and am very pleased, each of our bunches of keys are quite large and this holds them separately so its easy to grab the ones we want. It looks great on our kitchen wall and is a well made bit of kit at an excellent price
