1.0 out of 5 stars not 100% pure, 20 July 2015

It is not 100% pure. And even if they say that it is blended with "a small amount" of almond oil, on the bottle they say 50% almond oil. This is not "a small amount".

It is not 100% pure. And even if they say that it is blended with almond oil, on the bottle comes almond oil first and not even a percentage of jojoba is mentioned. This means the content of jojoba can be something between 49.1% or even 0.1%

1.0 out of 5 stars absolutely not pure, 18 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Attention! This is not pure as in the headline.
They write "100% Pure RosemaryOil..." and later they write "Blended with a small amount of Sweet Almond oil"...
When it arrives it lists on the ingredients first (so with most volume) sweet almond oil and sunflower oil. After that comes rosemary and after that 2 other ingredients.
So it could be very well only 1% or below of rosemary oil...

5.0 out of 5 stars perfect - even for professional use!, 20 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great product!
I tested it thoroughly - I earn a living by char-grilling, so be sure my tests were very demanding for the product.

1. Easy test: I baked bread and had the oven at around 280 C. Used the gloves to take out the hot shelf and put it back in the oven. I made that extra slow and was happy that my fingers still felt very good.
2. Medium test: BBQ - charcoal is white and hot in the chimney starter (by the way, you should always use such a thing to get a fast an brilliant glowing charcoal). Put on the gloves and pour new charcoal on the still very hot char-grill. In one hand the chimney starter in the other the grill. Still perfect comfortable in the gloves - they are by the way long enough on your arm if you are over the fire with them.

So far for what they guarantee. Now let's go for the real challenges.
3. Hard test: My char-coal is not lying right - so I put on the gloves and move the white glowing charcoal around with my hands - getting brave, I even carry some pieces around for a few seconds. Inside the gloves it is getting warm now - but only a little bit. Still very comfortable. But I nearly burned my fingers when I moved out of the gloves - tearing them with my other bare hand. So be careful: the gloves get very well hot on the outside as you would expect.
4. Very hard test: Normally I don't use char-coal briquettes, but I had to test a new brand. And these briquettes really get f...... hot! So I did the same as before, moving even the red and white briquettes around in my hands. That is nearly the limit of the gloves - it's getting quite warm inside the gloves - not that you would hurt yourself, but it is becoming uncomfortable.
5. Fire test: Finally I wanted to test what happens if you use the gloves with open fire. So I filled up the char-grill with a lot of liquid starter and burned it. Fiddling around in the fire is absolutely no problems for the gloves. And neither for the hands inside. It even rarely gets warm inside. But keep in mind that liquids can get easily into the gloves - if that is liquid fire starter or boiling water, you probably will have a huge problem. That's so far the only disadvantage I can see for these gloves.

After all, how do they look on the outside? A little dirty of course and a few spots where tissue got a little bit brown. But after washing they look nearly as new - except of e very few very small brown spots.

Compared with my old very thick leather gloves - which last as good in the heat as these gloves - these ones are really flexible and you have all five fingers to grab and handle things.
I'm really happy with them and will use them in the future for my professional char-grilling. Good by old leather gloves. I loved you - but it lasted only until I found these little cuties...

1.0 out of 5 stars thread to hygiene - dangerous, 17 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This item is the single worst item I ever bought. I you use the bowl with the knife blade and you use too much of some not too liquid ingredients, it sucks a good part of the ingredients through the spinning thing in the middle of the bowl directly into the motor.

So for example I wanted to make a very fine meat loaf, I put 700 Gramm finely grounded meat (pork and beef) and iced water with spices into the bowl. After finishing – which is hardly possible at all, because the system is way too week – I saw the mess sucked down into the middle whole. So I cleaned everything very thoroughly, but of course I didn’t open the machine itself, as I probably would lose warranty doing so. And everything looked fine.

A few days later a bad smell occurred in kitchen but we could not fix it. Another few days later hundreds and hundreds of small maggots come crawling out of the bottom of the machine. So know we knew were the smell came from!

I finally opened the machine (pls see photo attached) and saw the mess. The fine meat mass was sucked right into the motor – and not few of it.

It’s a shame that such a machine is allowed in the UK. The hygiene standard of this machine is an absolute catastrophe!

Don’t buy! And Amazon, pls get rid of this machine!

5.0 out of 5 stars really good!, 22 Oct. 2014
I was a little bit concerned because several people said that it is not heating the food up. But it does very well - tried it today with a very cold and thick pea soup (about 8 litres) and it heats it up properly. Which takes a little over an hour, like the write in the manual. And it keeps the soup hot between position 3 and 4 out of 12.
Nice looking pot, solid work and functioning properly.
