Swan SF17030N Stainless Steel Slow Cooker, 6.5 Litre
Swan SF17030N Stainless Steel Slow Cooker, 6.5 Litre
Offered by MightyHousewares
Price: £31.32

5.0 out of 5 stars I LOVE IT - IT'S EVERYTHING I HOPED TO FIND FINALLY!!, 19 Nov 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
LOVE IT!! This slow cooker is brilliant!!
I currently have a Morphy Richards 6.5L slow cooker that I've had for many years and wanted another one for when I have lots of people round to eat. I ordered another of the same model only to find that Morphy Richards had decided to make it MUCH smaller much to my annoyance! Still supposedly 6.5L but it so isn't!! That had to go back!
I tried another flashy one made by Crock-pot but this was not good it made the food bubble violently round the edges of the pan so that had to go back because I could never leave it whilst out which defeats the object of a slow cooker really!
I was starting to despair until I made the decision to try this SWAN model - it is absolutely fantastic! It is lovely and BIG and cooks beautifully without the violent bubbles round the edges of the slow cooker! It has various different temperature settings but I tend to cook everything on "low" for hours so it is deliciously tender. I will read up about the other settings sometime as it also has an "Auto" setting.
Today I have made a Chicken Casserole with dumplings today and it looks fab - I can't wait to eat it later tonight!
The real test will be Saturday when I am feeding a load of friends and family (this will call for both my slow cookers - one with Beef Goulash and the other with Spaghetti Bolognese yum yum!!)

I wasn't WOWED by this book. It is like any other Christmas recipe book. I have other books by Mary Berry that I think are fabulous but sorry this one in my opinion is just average.
I returned it for a refund

TRIXES 13 Piece Watch Repair and Wrist Strap Adjust Battery Changing Tool Kit
Offered by Digiflex
Price: £16.79

3.0 out of 5 stars Saved us a fortune so far!, 12 Nov 2014
It could be better quality but saying that it has proved useful a few times already saving us quite a lot of money in expensive jewellers for simple jobs such as battery changes. The main reason I bought it was for the watch case remover tool and it does work well although again it would be better if it was slightly better quality.

We bought the main diary last year so now it is time to get the refill for next year. I can't really say too much about this after all it is only a diary refill but it seems great. The main body of the diary is lasting well too so all in all we are pleased.

Not the greatest quality but they kind did the job when the screwdriver ends weren't falling out. They do go down really tiny for those awkward screws but I did get refund in the end.

I do like my GHD's not that I have to use them loads - but they are always good to have on hand. They give great results - always use heat protecting serum or spray though. They are great in this colour and this pair unlike my previous ones has a UK plug instead of a european one slotted into a UK adaptor plug.
I got an amazing price too so I am very happy!
