1.0 out of 5 stars The Kindle edition is pointless, 29 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've used Charmaine Solomon's Complete Asian Cookbook for around 35 years. It's brilliant.

Sadly the Kindle edition is not. I suspect the recipes are as good as ever but with no index & no way to browse it, it's a simply a serial product in a digital age.

By that I mean, whilst you can select the country whose food you're interested in, you can only see any dish by mechanically paging through each recipe rather than hyperlinking from an index or other pages. Since, for example. the India & Pakistan section has 3100 Kindle pages,that's a lot of screen swiping to find anything.

If you have a particular dish in mind, you've no way of knowing whether it's even in there. You could use the word search facility but unless you happen to know the name of a dish & the particular spelling used in the book, it's not much use.

I'll take the hit & save for the hardback, which despite the apparent lack of photos, is likely to be much more use.

5.0 out of 5 stars large capacity, great looks, 6 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Eva Knife Stand (Kitchen & Home)
I'd already bought a large knife block but it was designed for eight knives, was full with ten and the longer knives had parts of their blade protruding from the block - not exactly safe.

This one is marginally larger but I've got fifteen knives in it (room for more) and since the larger ones fit at the top of the block, where it's longest, the blades are completely covered.

No problems with stability and the black anodised surface is easy to clean & looks good.
