I bought this for my new induction hob, so I was quite excited to try it out. Its first use involved boiling some frozen peas, whereupon its base exhibited a rash of dark spots. The second use was to heat up pasta sauce. This time, its bottom erupted into an astonishing display of ruddy purple and blue. A few more uses and it has simmered down to a more subdued blotchy blue haze....
Apart from that, it has a well fitting lid,and the draining holes are very handy, but I think the grip on the handle is a little small so there's a risk of touching hot metal if you're not careful.

The Rose Cord (The Ballad of Sir Benfro) by James Oswald
5.0 out of 5 stars A page turner, 19 Jan 2013
I tend to read for a while after I've gone up to bed, but this book has been keeping me awake until the small hours! The pace doesn't slacken for a moment. Sir Benfro comes across as a believable character, and you find yourself genuinely concerned for his welfare. As in Dreamwalker, it's impossible to predict with any accuracy what will happen next, which makes it a page turner, and an excellent one at that.
Great stuff!
