eKitch Large Black Universal Knife Block - great for steel and ceramic knives
eKitch Large Black Universal Knife Block - great for steel and ceramic knives
Offered by Home & Travel
Price: £29.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb product needed years ago, 14 Oct. 2013
This product is brilliant. No more having to use several knife blocks or drawers for the knives, just one simple yet very convenient place for everything. Just put the knives, scissors straight in and they are held perfectly in place. And you don't even need to find the right slot for the knife so it's even easier than a block!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Works well and stores small, 24 Sept. 2012
Works on our roof mounted velux windows fine, although not perfect as i do find you have problems getting it too release from the windows handle sometimes (I solve this by opening it a bit attaching it to one side then turning it around and fully opening it on the other side - this may be true of all Velux poles).

It does slide down inside itself really neatly to half it's height, so makes storage good. It is made of a good strong metal as well so thats really good. Would definitely buy again.

3.0 out of 5 stars Easy to build, light but not strong, 24 Sept. 2012
The shed was easy to build, requiring not much time (1 hour) to put together, definitely a lot quicker than the wooden alternatives. Being plastic it obviously weathers well, and needs little maintenance. It looks ok and although it's made of cheap plastic, it actually appears quite nice in the garden.

It is however not that sturdy or strong, so for instance there were two broken pieces of plastic when it arrived (they were non critical on the inside so i didnt replace), and the doors don't close very easily because the floor doesn't have enough points to weight it down, plus because it's so light it is very hard to keep flat to make the doors close without sticking on the floor. You have to lever them closed by lifting or pushing hard. There is no lock or bolt to keep the door closed either so it does open by itself sometimes.

Therefore, not easy to allow a child to just open and close for them to get stuff out (which i thought would be better than a wood one for them), but ok for an adult. Would think twice before buying this again, but wouldn't rule it out if i wanted something quick to build and for occasional use.

2.0 out of 5 stars Easy to break, 24 Sept. 2012

This review is from: Great Value Plastic Golf Set (Toy)
The golf clubs break to easily on this set as they are made with a hard plastic. My child managed to crack the heads of the clubs pretty quickly, even though he was playing off grass as it only takes a protuding stone to crack them. then little pieces of hard plastic come flying off. The holes are pretty good though and there are quite a few balls, so you might like this as an accompanyment to another set you have bought. Definitely the worst of the 3 golf sets i have bought.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superbly made, perfect for iphone, 4 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought one of these for my wife and was so impressed, i got one for myself.

They are superbly made and last a long time (my wife's is slightly damaged on the top edge after 2 years, including our 1.5yr old dropping it every week on hard flooring).

I looked around for this type as it opens downwards so you don't get the flap hitting you in the face as you talk on it.

also, you can easily open it with one hand, and yet the clasp remains tight after time (again my wife's two year old one is looser than my new one, but definitely still holds absolutely fine).

Yes you do have to leave it open to charge it, but the lid easily folds under the phone (propping it up) while it charges, so it's no problem at all.

I've recommended these to my friends and several have bought them and love them (so many colours to choose from)!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Really great set of wine items for yourself or as a present, 4 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a great set as either a present or if you don't have all the items you need yourself (like me). The box looks like it is a bit cheap with the plasticky picture, but actually it's a magnetic opening box from the side (length) which opens upwards to reveal all the items neatly given their own pocket.

The items are all good solid pieces and not light or cheap feeling, so it definitely looks much more expensive than it is.

I've been using them for a few weeks and the 'corker' is a joy to use and works superbly. The cutter is sharp and works perfectly.

Now i have this for myself, but I would definitely buy this as a present for someone.

This review is from: Crazy Golf Set (Toy)
My son is only 20 months and he saw me watching golf on the TV and i got him to clap when they putted into the hole so i decided we should get him a golf set. Most golf sets say for over 2yr olds, but he is able to use this perfectly well and has enjoyed it immensely.

He loves the fact there is a boat, house and car (words he can say) and the ball is a perfect contruction, as it will only go about 10 feet if he hits it hard, but he can hit it small distances with ease. The clubs are very light and easy to hold for him, and as they are hollow (like the ball) it doesn't cause any damage (or hurt). The house is a little flimsy and the green hole thingy is a bit odd, but the bridge, boat and truck are perfect.

I can't believe how good this is, one of the best presents I've bought for him.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great coffee, easy to use, 14 Dec. 2011
This is a good coffee maker for espresso, latte and especially cappucino.

Strengths

It is easy to use with minimal controls to get what you need.
It is pretty quick, with coffee in less than 5 mins and cappucinos in about 7-8mins.
It makes really good coffee, with a good strength and the steam part for cappucinos is powerful enough to make great frothy ones.
Water tank is a good size and makes probably 8 coffees before needing refilling, which is very easy to do.
Cleaning is pretty simple and if you do it as you go along while the next stage is in progress then it takes little time. Takes a bit longer to clean the steamer part as there are two plastic parts around the metal for safety but it only takes 1 minute to clean.

Downsides

The machine only makes two cups at once. Fine for most of the time but not great when hosting guests as the time to run through a cycle is 5-7 minutes and then you 've made two cups and have to wait around for the next two. Storing all the coffee in a jug and then puring it all at the end cuts the wait between them.

Also, the gap from the base to where the coffee comes out isn't very high so you can't get a mug underneath there. This is a shame as you have to use a lowere but wider jug to get all the coffee first and then pour into the mugs. This does have the advantage of an even coffee strength as sometimes one of the two sides gets stronger output.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb cover, almost perfect, 4 April 2011
I have to say this is the best cover i have seen on a mobile phone ever (and i work in the Industry). It looks and feels very expensive, has been admired by numerous friends (whom some have since bought it) and is the most practical case i've seen.

I agree some may feel opening the case to charge it is a pain (but you can double back the cover behind the case and when your charging you place the phone on something so you don't need to cover the screen).

The cover opening down rather than up makes it soo much nicer when your talking and again you can double it back.

The clip seems pretty sturdy to me, but obviously years of use may tell (but how many cases last years).

It is strong, well built, looks great, is completely practical and I have no hesitation giving it 5 stars.
