Emma Bridgewater - Polka Dot Biscuit Barrel

Offered by Crackers Ltd
Price: £18.00

4.0 out of 5 stars Who ate all the fig rolls..?, 31 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
My wife likes it's appearance and I must admit it looks OK sitting on the kitchen worktop.The lid fits tightly and so far is keeping biscuits fresh. Don't know how rust resistant it will be in a steamy kitchen atmosphere.

Silvine A3 graph pad 1mm 5mm 10mm squares/squared/grid paper
Offered by Capital Houseware
Price: £6.45

5.0 out of 5 stars Useful size graph pad, 31 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A more useful size than A4 for many designs as it enables more accurate measurements and layouts, which is important when you are an amateur like me and cannot justify buying or using CAD software for the occasional design job. 50 sheets of paper so it's not bad value. Delivered very quickly, which was impressive for the period between Christmas and New Year.

Seems like decent quality and has a pleasant, soft feel to it. Cheaper than many over-priced Xmas t shirts.


Casio W-800H-1AVES  Men's Resin Digital Watch
Casio W-800H-1AVES Men's Resin Digital Watch
Offered by WatchO
Price: £16.30

5.0 out of 5 stars Good cheap watch, 6 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It's cheap, easy to use, tells the time, it's comfortable and it has a functional, unpretentious appearance. I've got through a number of cheap metal-bodied watches over the last few years and most of them were poor value even at their low prices.This Casio looks more promising. My only negative point would be the feeble alarm which is difficult to hear when I'm awake and certainly wouldn't wake me from my sleep. If this is important to you, you may wish to look elsewhere. Otherwise, recommended.

The plastic seems a little on the brittle side and they were sent loose inside an envelope but at this price who can complain?


globehopper 15.6" Black Laptop Briefcase Messenger Bag with Shoulder Strap & Carry Handles, Leather Feel
globehopper 15.6" Black Laptop Briefcase Messenger Bag with Shoulder Strap & Carry Handles, Leather Feel
Offered by globehopper
Price: £27.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Good value bag, 6 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Good value for money bag, with good sized compartments. I can easily fit a bulging A4 Filofax in one compartment, plus a number of A4 size folders and wallets in two other compartments, without damaging them, and still fit smaller bits and pieces around these and in the smaller pockets. Appearance is of the imitation leather type with emphasis on the 'imitation' but at this price this is ok. I do not know how it will stand up to long term use, but seems well put together. It could do with some feet to protect the bottom of the bag but this is my only quibble so far.


Campingaz 3-in-1 Stove Cv Version With One Burner Valve - Blue
Campingaz 3-in-1 Stove Cv Version With One Burner Valve - Blue
Offered by Norwich Camping and Leisure
Price: £49.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Good for picnics, 11 Oct. 2014
Have used this several times for picnics through the summer and overall have been impressed. Bear in mind that most photos don't show the gas tube and connector hanging at the rear of the BBQ, but a bungee cord should hold these in place. Construction and quality is good and I can't fault the cooking ability at this price. It's easy to to take apart and clean. My main quibble is that after you have finished cooking the interior will contain a mix of water (if you follow the instructions) and fat / grease which takes time to solidify. If you wander off carrying the BBQ beside you before this happens you may well find a trickle of fat dribbling down your leg. My solution is to use kitchen roll to soak up the grease (and a Tesco carrier bag for the kitchen roll). Alternatively take an extra bottle of wine to enjoy while the fat solidifies. The only problem then is remembering where you parked the car ... Anyway I would recommend this product.


Neutron Soft Close Quick Release Toilet Seat
Neutron Soft Close Quick Release Toilet Seat
Offered by The Home Store
Price: £26.94

5.0 out of 5 stars More comfortable to sit on as well, 28 July 2014
This seat appears to be of equivalent quality to a more expensive one I bought recently and which lasted just a few months. More comfortable to sit on as well. Looks good ... for a toilet seat. Easy to fit and easy to clean. The soft close mechanism works well every time. No complaints.


Premier Housewares Splatter Guard - Black
Premier Housewares Splatter Guard - Black

4.0 out of 5 stars Good splatter guard, 28 July 2014
Does the job well but remember that when you remove it to add ingredients or stir the food the contents will continue to splatter and it's amazing how much splattering can happen in a few seconds. Not the fault of this product just a fact of life ... Turning down the heat for a few seconds will probably help. Check that it's the right size for your pan(s).

At 4 for £10 these are good value. Take a full pint with room for a bit of froth. Comfortable handle with no excessively protruding ridge to cut into your fingers. Were delivered wrapped in several layers of bubble wrap for protection. Recommended.
