Chef'n Freshforce Citrus Juicer Lime Colour
Chef'n Freshforce Citrus Juicer Lime Colour
Offered by Gifts Direct 2 U Ltd
Price: £23.50

5.0 out of 5 stars Solid built, 19 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a very solidly build juicer. Because of the gear mechanism, very little force is required to extract the juice. It is large enough to take even a large sized lime.

5.0 out of 5 stars No more glue drips, 16 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Finally I have found a glue gun that does not drip glue. Its metal tip dispenses just the precise amount of glue so that there are no glue blobs while sticking.

5.0 out of 5 stars Can't go wrong buying this, 30 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I purchased this items based on good reviews and they were right. I have recently had an opportunity to compare it with a LED Lenser P7 torch with brand new batteries. Both were identical in the beam strength and evenness of illumination. The P7 is slightly larger and heavier and appears to be more sturdy, but the Nebo is more pocketable. Also less costly. The design behind the beam switching is also quite thought out. The first click gives full power which is what is required most often. The second click switches it off. Further clicks cycle it through half power, off, slow strobe, off, fast strobe and off. The last one is of tactical use though I cannot figure out what the slow stobe would be useful for (dancing?). However, you don't have to cycle through all the stages each time. If you use the full beam once and put away the torch for a few minutes and then put it on again, it switches on again on full power, which is what would be intuitively required by most - quite a nifty design. Definitely a 5 star.


Logitech M515 Wireless Mouse - Silver
Logitech M515 Wireless Mouse - Silver
Offered by Accessory-Shop
Price: £29.95

3.0 out of 5 stars Needs full hand contact, 30 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The mouse is good, in keeping with expected Logitech quality. It has a special feature of requiring capacitative contact with the hand to activate it. While this helps in preventing inadvertent cursor movements and extends battery life, it has a negative. You have to be sitting with your hand covering most of the mouse surface to keep it active. If you are like me and sometime operate the mouse by leaning over the table and gripping the mouse lightly with your fingers only, you will find that the mouse does not work. What I though to be a defective piece turned out to be a design quirk!

5.0 out of 5 stars Good coffee. An intelligent machine, 22 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
After previously having owned a capsule coffee machine (a Which Best Buy), I bought this machine (also a Which Best Buy). The first thing I realized is that coffee beans that are ground fresh have much more aroma than coffee pod machines. The coffee taste and aroma from this machine is just as good as it gets and is as good as the one I used to make using a manual pump coffee machine. The machine is not very loud and the entire time from pressing to button to getting a full cup (including grinding) is about a minute. There are controls for how fine you want the coffee beans ground, for the amount of coffee powder you want used each time (weak or strong coffee), the volume of coffee liquor per cup. The machine is intelligent enough to tell when the drip tray is full, when the tank needs filling, when the grounds container needs emptying. The only negative I can think of is that the machine is so loaded with sensors that, if any of the sensors develops a fault, the machine will stop working entirely.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sturdy, 22 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
When I read the various reviews while searching for such a product, the biggest problem appeared to be that these back scratchers break very easily. This one is sturdy and unless one steps in it, it is unlikely to bend or break. Even when pulled out fully it is rigid and does not bend. The best part is the construction of the scratching 'hand'. It is just right - not too blunt and not too sharp. Does an excellent job.

Very good construction. Does not shed. The handle is sturdy. The lambs wool builds up static and lifts off dirt very well.


Ultimate Digital Luggage Scale
Ultimate Digital Luggage Scale

5.0 out of 5 stars A must-buy if you travel a lot, 22 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Feels very sturdy. The strap is strong and of adequate length. It has a buckle that is different from most strap buckles and will not open accidentally while weighing luggage. The readings are consistent, though I have not yet had an opportunity to compare it with the airport machines. The handle fits ergonomically in the hand and feels very comfortable. There is a red LED that lights up when the reading is stable - usually in a couple of seconds. The luggage can then be put down and the display read. There is a slider on-off switch in addition to a push-to-switch-on switch - ensures that the unit does not go on accidentally and the battery is not drained. I don't know how the other units are in comparison, but you cannot go wrong if you buy this one.

Update: I have now had the opportunity to test its accuracy against the airport weighing scales. It was accurate to half a kilogram. Surprisingly, my luggage had to be weighed twice using the weighing scales at two airport counters - they were off by half a kilogram between themselves!

4.0 out of 5 stars Could have been a bit thicker, 22 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Colourful and good quality cloth. However it could have been a bit thicker - the tea cools off under this tea cosy. Maybe all the others are equally thin...

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent shoe buffers, 22 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Buffer Bit
I attached it to my power drill and it shines shoes beautifully. Surprised that these are the only shoe buffers that I could find in-spite of having searched for years. Unless one goes in for the very very expensive commercial models.The material sheds for a couple of days, as mentioned in the enclosed manual, but is excellent after that.
