Landmann 0273 3Kg Lava Rock Pack
Landmann 0273 3Kg Lava Rock Pack
Price: £4.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Get Your (Old) Rocks Off., 6 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Without getting the whole gas versus charcoal BBQ debate, these lava rocks serve my gas one ideally. It is normally recommended to change the rocks yearly, but of course it quite simply depends on how much you use your BBQ!

These rocks certainly do not give off any unpleasant aromas, gasses etc., so there's nothing to worry about regarding your foodstuffs being tainted with bitter flavours. I have found the opposite in that so long as you build up a couple of layers in the tray (preventing any direct flames bursting through), flavours are enhanced. Quantity wise it's difficult to say how many boxes to buy but better to have more than less. I have found them to be a good quality, and unlike some they do not simply disintegrate after a couple of cooks. It's also worthwhile every now and then moving them from the top to the bottom of the rack to help with longevity.
Happy cooking!

5.0 out of 5 stars Small Spoons for Small Egg & Spoon Races., 6 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Good quality plastic and dishwasher proof. The bright colours might put some people off but it does mean they are easy to see in any cluttered drawers. As you'd expect, they cover all the handy smaller measuring sizes for cooking and baking. You can separate them from the "key ring" but it does help to put them back on the ring after, if nothing else just to save you the hassle of implementing the spoon "search and rescue" plan at a later date. After all, you'll put it somewhere that you'll "remember where it is"....that is until it comes to actually "remembering where it is".

Haven't had one of these on my bike since many moons ago. You can opt for klaxon type mounted sirens to alert folk to your oncoming presence, but you'd probably also need to be medically trained for the ensuing carnage that follows the shock and horror of folk running for the air raid shelters. A much more sedate, and quewntisentially British option, is to flick the arm of your bike bell and issue a more pleasant, but audible alert of your impending collision to the good people blocking your way.

This option is easy to affix onto the handle bars and requires no batteries. Sadly, along with the klaxon type audible alerts this also will not tell you if those in front of you walking obliviously to and fro across your line of sight are wearing earphones. In which case in either instance they would probably not hear you, so always be ready to end up with an rsi injury with your thumb ringing that bell, and then assume the brace position in anticipation of a crash landing.

In summary, a good product and a worthy purchase for your unicycle, pushbike or tandom (for which you could always buy two).

These (or at the very least something similar), regardless of the distance you might have to travel, are a must for any cyclist these days on British roads. I've put mine onto my bike helmet, only a little fiddly to get on but I have no intention of taking them until the battery needs replacing. There are three cyclical (pun intended!) options for the lights, depending on whether you want them flashing or simply on on. Having them flashing does preserve the battery life, but it's all down to personal preference. These are bright but will not dazzle pedestrians, pets, or other road users, but they will make others be aware that you are there.


Kitchen Craft Tinned Blanching Basket 16cm x 14cm
Kitchen Craft Tinned Blanching Basket 16cm x 14cm

5.0 out of 5 stars Blanches Basket., 6 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Plenty of variations, plastic or otherwise, that might do the same. However, I wanted one that would fit differing diameter pans which might not necessarily be all the same depth. This basket is very well made, with the gaps in the mesh not being too large. (So far I've only had one length of spaghetti work its way to freedom, whereas my previous plastic version seemed to direct all the spaghetti towards the sink plug hole).

As you would expect, it's good for pasta, noodles, veg etc. Perhaps slightly awkward for storing in so much that it doesn't collapse down, but it does tick boxes regarding durability and serviceability.

Several different types of these on market.
Wanted these primarily to go in my rucksack for the cycle commute to work. They indicate they are for kayaks but unless the local roads become flooded I can't say I'll be going on the water with them. They do seem to be robust, and although I haven't tested them on or under water, I would imagine they would do as advertised.
The smaller size is ideal for a phone or wallet, and the larger for a tablet or even a dry tshirt etc. Even good for wrapped foodstuffs, I'd draw the line at filling them with liquids though. They are secured with both a plastic strip and a double fold of Velcro, and come with a length of cord attached to each one to enable you to secure it to your rucksack, yak,kayak, jacket or jet-ski. That said, there is no mention in any literature that indicates they are actually yak proof.

Bought these to go with the Bright Spark blowtorch. To be honest.....it wouldn't work without them.
So long as you follow the correct safety guidelines for usage, you shouldn't end up in A&E.

A great refreshing product, both to smell and apply.
I bought this as I was finding some other balms / moisturisers too greasy for my skin. However, applying the skin food pre-shave helps soften the skin and also gives a closer shave on the first pass. I also apply some as an after shave lotion once the de razor performance is complete. As with most quality shaving products, a little goes a long way and I find per application I use 1/2 to 1 tspn. I hadn't used this product before, but will certainly buy some more of the same when my current batch is depleted.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Kitchen Gadget!, 5 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Rather than for any DIY or mechanical purposes, I bought this as an aid in cooking. Granted, the aforementioned categories probably do fall into the realms of cooking, but at varying levels. First off don't just use it for "cooking", an oven does the job far quicker.

I've tried a couple of other brands of kitchen blow torches in the past, one cheaper and another about the same price. With both I had issues with refuelling them, and one struggled to ignite when it was most needed. To that end, the Bright Spark hasn't let me down. It's very easy to set up, I think some people have had issues screwing on the torch to the canister, but after a couple of practice goes it's plain sailing.

The ignition of the torch, as you would expect is instantaneous, and you have excellent control of the flame intensity. It it is very well made and although it does have some plasticky looking parts, but they are soundly manufactured and should last! Other than the kitchen I've also used it for lighting the BBQ, and if the BBQ takes too long to get going, just blowtorch the food! (From a food safety point of view though, the latter's not recommended, use a welding torch instead).
