Panasonic SD2502 Stainless Steel Bread Maker
Panasonic SD2502 Stainless Steel Bread Maker
Price: £134.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant, 4 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Panasonic Breadmakers have certainly progressed since we bout our first one 15 years ago. This one looks nice and the build quality is good. It makes lovely white bread and we adore the dark crust but do leave the bread to cool before cutting!!. I do use a little more yeast than the recipes suggest. Wholemeal bread comes out very nice too. I was disappointed by the seeded loaf that I tried- it didn't work at all

3.0 out of 5 stars Not the size I expected, 4 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I thought I had ordered a large case but when it arrived it was only cabin size. It was expensive given the size. Otherwise the quality and the finish seems good


HP Photosmart 6520 e-All-in-One Printer

4.0 out of 5 stars Impressed so far!, 4 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
We got this printer to replace a cheaper HP printer that had horrendous software/operation issues. I am pleased to report I haven't had any problems with this one so far... apart from being unable to configure Eprint for my iphone and ipad because the setup wizard crashed. However that's not a great issue.

I have printed photos and double-sided documents without problem and am happy with the quality. I think the printer is faster and quieter than my old model and I think ink usage is better. Overall I'm impressed so far!

4.0 out of 5 stars My favourite scissors for dressmaking., 15 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I love Friskars scissors. They are well balanced and weighted and sit in the hand nicely. The blades meet each other and pass smoothly and the grips are gentle on the thumb and fingers.

The only things that I don't like are the price and get ruined for dressmaking too quickly if used for cutting paper and cardboard!

Fackelmann Nirosta 48145 Scissors 21 cm for Left-Handed Users

3.0 out of 5 stars A good alternative to Friskars Left handed scissors, 15 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought these scissors to use for dressmaking because they were substantially cheaper than the more expensive Friskars which I always use and like, and a I was curios. The lower value and quality is evident in the lighter weight, the finish and quality of the plastic handles and the reduced smoothness when cutting fabric. Also, the thumbhole made the base of my thumb sore because The hole isn't wasn't round enough.

That being said, the scissors meet and cut well. the blades pass each other smoothly and the scissors are well balanced.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good swimming mask, 23 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I had an earlier version of this mask and this one is a distinct improvement. I love the tint on the lenses and its very easy to adjust using the straps. The seal on my face is as good as my scuba diving mask...so good the sometimes I forget which one I'm wearing :-)

4.0 out of 5 stars Good replacement car radio., 23 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this to replace the radio/ sat nav in my husbands car. There's quite a lot to set up and the manual is a must- read! It was easy to install and easy to set up. Sadly it doesn't work off the steering wheel controls and it has no way to attach to the changer but my husband is pleased with it.

5.0 out of 5 stars 1yr old grandson loves it, 23 Jun 2013

A super choice. Gave it to our crawling grandson for his first birthday. He pulls himself up using the handle, gets on and off it without help. It seems sturdy and well made

1.0 out of 5 stars Very disappointing..., 5 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
bought it for my grandson at Christmas and only saw it in the bath recently. Very disappointed. The fins move but don't actually achieve anything they don't seem to splash at all! The singing is barely audible and the way its put together with screws doesn't give you confidence that the fish is waterproof and therefore suitable for the bath. Personally I would question whether the description of the sing and splash fish contravenes the Trades Description Act...

4.0 out of 5 stars Good robust money box, 1 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I like it and so did my 2yr old grandson. It looks robust and the secret lock is not immediately obvious. My only concern, is the wheels that are glued on circles of wood. These look sturdy but I suspect they might suffer over the years.
