2.0 out of 5 stars Didn't like the recipes, 5 Feb 2014

Just thought they were odd, with mismatched tastes. Cooked the rice and lamb dish with apricots. It wasn't nice at all. So, I wouldn't recommend this book.

1.0 out of 5 stars Burnt my food on one side, 5 Feb 2014
I have owned a previous slow cooker, but looked forward to owning this one because it had the advantage of a timer!

However, 5 hours on "low" for a lamb and rice dish yielded poor results. There was plenty of moisture in the dish, but all along one side of the cooker it was very burnt. I had seen some reviewers mentioning this, but I saw with my own eyes this.

I will return to my cheap Morphy Richards! But I would love to find a slow cooker with a timer that really does SLOW COOK at a low temperature, and not burning would be an advantage too.

Quite nice quality. Not obviously top-of-the-range. But works fine and pretty good value for all that. Best value I could find on the net. Be warned, knives are sharp!

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice but expensive for what it is, 31 Jan 2014

Still, I couldn't find anything cheaper. Liked the little cosy warmer as well. Useful for when nano ipod not in use much/storage.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent for the price., 15 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As it came from China, I wondered if the quality would be good, or if it would arrive at all, but its fine. I really like it because its so narrow, with a pouch just big enough for some keys and money. Its a tiny bit stretchy so you could squeeze a bit more in, but I think this pouch is suitable for someone who wants it just for a key or some money, maybe small nano ipod. Its a gift to my son when he goes out to play!!!

P.S. Quality-wise, I have noticed a tiny bit of fraying so it probably won't last forever, but will probably get lost first anyway. And still compares favourably on price of £15 plus in UK.

2.0 out of 5 stars Felt hassled by seller to give reviews, 8 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Beware - item fine, but not happy when they emailed me saying thanks for the Seller Review, could I now write a Product Review?! I felt completely hassled. They offered me a stylus or something I don't want, if I give one. I found this intrusive as I had already give a review, and had simply not got round to the product review. I always try and give helpful and reviews when possible, but don't like being emailed or hassled for them, especially when I had already given a 5/5 Seller review (which I have now removed as I could not amend).

2.0 out of 5 stars Very white light, 3 Jan 2014

Bought this for my son. Its undoubtedly good quality. But don't like the white light effect, personally. Its like a floodlight at a football game. Prefer something more yellow/subtle

3.0 out of 5 stars OK, 3 Jan 2014

Its alright. Easy to pour hot water into, which is good. But a bit on the small side and not all that hot. But still OK.

Good quality at this price. Some of the other make up houses have ridiculous prices for a blue/purplish shade like this. I wish there was a lighter blue though.

3.0 out of 5 stars Its bigggg, 3 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Its big, its good quality, but its more of a Raspberry colour I would say. Personally, I would have preferred a smaller one. But great for a big double bed etc, probably.
