2.0 out of 5 stars Mediocre band, 28 April 2014
Don't get me wrong; I bought this because RB is a class player, now that he plays the guitar instead of playing with it (like in the Rainbow of the 70s).

I found this to be very mediocre. Not Ritchie, he was on good form. The band, they sound like they've been plucked out from doing rock covers in a pub. The singer performs histrionically; hits most of the notes but he has no 'soul' or class in his voice, completely unlike Dio or Graham Bonnett. He is also decidedly charmless, you need good presence to counter Ritchie’s’ standard ‘standing at the back and brooding’ persona.

To play great rock music, the band needs to 'groove'. Ritchie has worked with great drummers… Read more

2.0 out of 5 stars Dodgy lid again, 25 Oct 2013
This was a Which? best buy years ago.

After a couple of years the lid started to be sluggish to open, and on year three it broke. Looking at how it's held I'm surpised it didn't break after a week.

It boils very fast, is rather noisy, but the quality is poor. I'd expect an expensive kettle like this to last more than 3 years.

And no, no part available, so it goes in the bin.

I have to say, I am not pleased. The concept is great, and when it's running it's very good. But, if you share my experince you will be furious!

Gradually and steadily, the battery life diminishes. You end up finding you have to charge it before every use, then the final straw is that you charge it, and it won't even hold the charge for a day, even without use. Mine is now 10 months old and the problem started after a couple of months.

My experience of Apple is that if you have a complaint, you might as well whistle, becuase you won't even get to communicate with a human!

Very dissappointed.
