Tefal Safe to Touch Kettle, 1.5 Litre, 3000 Watt, &hellip by Tefal
3.0 out of 5 stars Dark and powerful!, 18 Sep 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I feel a bit sorry for this appliance. Why? Because for the past 20 years I've had a brushed aluminium Seimens Porsche kettle, one of the first to have gizmos like doubled walled insulation and a concealed element, as well as styling to rival Concorde. So if you are 20 years late to the same specification and made of black plastic, you're just never going to cut it, are you.

Ok - that's the necessarily slightly negative context for my review over. Do I have anything nice to say about this Tefal gadget? Well, actually yes. It looks nice and streamlined.

Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a well-designed, well-made and easy to use tripod. It adjusts effortlessly up and down to eye level, and the head both tilts and rotates.

It comes with the joints all very well greased (so much so in fact that you might be advised to carry tissues or a cloth so you can clean you hands before attaching your camera) so any adjustments are always smooth and precise. There is also… Read more
Vax Dual Power Carpet Cleaner, 2.7 L, Graphite and&hellip by Vax
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
The Vax Dual Power Carpet Cleaner is the first dedicated carpet washer I've used and I was a little dubious that a domestic cleaner would really produce a decent result. Happily I my doubts were unfounded.

The cleaner comes in 3 parts which are simple to clip together to form a pretty slimline unit held securely by the three screws provided. The larger top clean water tank holds 2.7l and the bottom waste water tank 1.5l so there's decent capacity to complete a room without too many refills. The unit comes with 250mls of Vax's proprietary regular cleaning solution and to be honest I don't think it would last any great length of time before having to purchase the pretty expensive… Read more
