simplehuman - 46 Litre Rectangular Recycler - Fingerprint-Proof Stainless Steel
simplehuman - 46 Litre Rectangular Recycler - Fingerprint-Proof Stainless Steel
Price: 110.00

5.0 out of 5 stars Makes rubbish look tidy, 17 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought after having another simplehuman bin for household rubbish and being very pleased with it. Like the other bin, it's well made, well designed, neat, tidy, easy to empty. The two separate compartments hold a surprising amount of recycling material. Replaces ugly plastic bin where contents overflowed regularly and has removed an eyesore in the kitchen.

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointment, 14 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Well packed, but the rubber seal on the plastic lid was damaged because it was stuck to the glass jar and the rubber had perished. Do not know if this is something done at assembly to ensure the lid does not move, or if at some stage it has been too hot while in storage or transit. Can't use the appliance fully as the seal is not liquid proof. Have asked for replacement seal/lid from Cuisnart.

5.0 out of 5 stars High Cotton Content, 23 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Well made, best level of support and best looks from an bra with such a high cotton content. Comfortable, but quite a snug fit. Worth remembering when ordering again that cotton does not stretch like lycra and that a size larger might be worth considering. Not sure how much it will shrink after a few washes either and will need to actor that in too.

High cotton content, very comfortable and does the job. Better than other models tried, but does not fit quite like the picture.

This review is from: Look and Cook (Hardcover)
The last in a series that tells you how Domestic Science was taught and how much students learnt. That;s why people of a certain age have competence in the kitchen and home.

3.0 out of 5 stars Cheap Alternative to Failed Cardboard Cutter Boxes, 29 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought two of these (other colours available) for waxed paper and greaseproof paper: I do a lot of home cooking and am sick of cardboard cutter boxes so weak the box disintegrates and it's impossible to tear accurately before the roll is used up.
These dispensers will fit 30cm kitchen papers other than foil or clingfilm which don't have an inner cardboard tube (some superior models do not take these sorts of kitchen papers). They take up a lot less storage space than some models, as they fit neatly next to each other in a drawer or cupboard.
They work reasonably well and certainly cut more neatly and accurately than the wobbly cutting boxes, but they are tricky to open and load with paper (see small diagram for correct way).The cutting edge sticks out and is sharp enough to draw blood, so take care when loading the paper roll and in using it.
But for the money (cheap) and convenience, it's certainly ok.

Hard to get roses with screw fittings which fit older watering cans. So pleased to get this one, which has put a quality traditional can back into service.

5.0 out of 5 stars Foil cuts easily, 1 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Does what it should: no more ripping odd shaped pieces of foil or your thumbs, wrestling with a disintegrating cardboard box. Unlike the bulkier, more expensive models, it actually stacks tidily on top of existing boxes of parchment and greaseproof in the cupboard.Now I'm hoping to find other decent, modestly priced cutter boxes. But note, there are so many different sizes and dimensions for these kitchen rolls that one cutter box won't fit all.

4.0 out of 5 stars Dishwasher Powder v Tablets, 17 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Powder is much cheaper than tablets and with a dishwasher put on once or twice a day that's a chunk of household running costs saved. Even with the additional cost of salt (can be bought very cheaply) and rinse aid (ditto) it's a lot less, something Which? has finally picked up on in a recent product review. You can control how much powder etc. you use and tailor quantities to meet your requirements. If you live in a soft water area, you don't need the amount in an all-in tablet to do the job. If you have a septic tank, you need to cut down your use of detergents anyway. So that's a further saving!

I added a scoop to the container to measure the amount I need: one isn't supplied. The containers aren't the strongest. I've also bought powder refills and decanted them into empty dishwasher powder containers from other suppliers, as there are very few now.
