Excellent bowl. Like all melamine, you put it in the microwave at your own peril ! Perfect for entertaining. Lovely design, and, as far as I can tell, hard-wearing.

Typhoon Double Herb Chopper/ Hachoir/ Mezzaluna Set
Offered by KG Homewares

5.0 out of 5 stars Whatever you call it, it works!, 15 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Herb chopper, Hachoir, Mezzaluna - it comes with many names, but the important thing is whether it works. Well - it does !
The whole thing is compact and therefore easy to store. The blade is nice and sharp. You can use it one-handed with ease.. The little wooden board is perfect for the quantities you would normally use. Plus it is a very reasonable price.
I persuaded someone to buy it for me for Xmas and I've been delighted with it ever since, happily chopping parsley, sage, rosemary and mint to date.

4.0 out of 5 stars The original 'found footage' horror ! (with spoilers), 10 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This edition by Shameless, if not completely uncut, must be about as complete as you can get and, contrary to another reviewer, it IS in English.
I had just seen the DVD that Amazon Prime (was Lovefilm) rent out, and it has so many cuts, it was hardly worth seeing. You would wonder what all the fuss was about. So it's worth buying this one to get the full picture.

'The film tells the story of a missing documentary film crew who had gone to the Amazon to film cannibal tribes. A rescue mission, led by the New York University anthropologist Harold Monroe, recovers the film crew's lost cans of film, which an American television station wishes to broadcast. Upon viewing the reels, Monroe is appalled by the team's actions, and after learning their fate, he objects to the station's intent to air the documentary.' (Wiki's excellent precis).

As a critique on primitive tribal man, it is probably wildly inaccurate, but actually quite believable. The most unbelievable parts are the actions of the original film-makers, who are libidinous children, poking an ant's nest and then wondering why they get stung.
The troublesome parts are definitely the animal killings, because you know in your heart the human ones are fake, but these animals actually were killed just for entertainment - ours. Veggies, PETA, etc should not watch !
The acting is not that great, but the effects are. At the end, I just wonder whether the instruction to burn the reels would have been carried out - there is always someone who would see its underground snuff value. Cannibals feed off each other - don't we all, to some extent ?

5.0 out of 5 stars Ironing comfort at last !, 29 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have knee problems so find standing to iron a (literal and metaphorical) pain ! The stool is quite heavy, but is very sturdy. Because the seat is angled slightly forwards, you are in a perfect position to iron without getting your knees bumped against the ironing board legs. In fact, if like me, you have a lightweight board, it's easier to move the board when required than get up & move the perching stool! It folds away very satisfactorily if you need to make space, though if you had to do that every time it might prove irritating.
I think ironing is one of modern life's biggest time-wasters, bores me rigid, and if I could get away with it I would do none! Unfortunately fashion and expectations ensure otherwise, but the stool does its best to ease the chore.

Fabulous vivid colour, lightweight, attractive to use on a dining-table. Comes in a ridiculously large box, so if you're in need of a large Amazon box, good idea to get your trivet here !!

4.0 out of 5 stars Read the description carefully, 29 Jan 2014

Whilst the actual product is as described and perfectly fit for purpose, I was misled by the plural title of Muslin BAGS - note, there is ONLY ONE bag !
