5.0 out of 5 stars Foolproof, 30 April 2007
I bought this box last weekend and have only just installed it. After the 3 hour fiasco trying to install the last VCR we bought I thought I'd leave this to the weekend to install, just in case it took me forever. And 5 minutes after plugging in everything and turning the machine on, we were off and running. Unbelievably easy. Picked up all the freeview channels without a problem, can't say I've noticed any annoying noises coming from it either.

Kenwood JE550  Juice Extractor by Kenwood

This easily has to be the worst juicer ever:

1. There is a tiny, tiny, container for collecting juice
2. There is a tiny container for collecting pulp
3. There seems to have far more parts than it needs, which moves to:

Never, ever, leave pulp in this for more than 1/2 hour, rinse immediately, otherwise its very difficult to get clean.

I thoroughly recommend the Phillips, which can fit a whole apple down the tube and has a huge pulp capacity. Avoid this one like the plague - which is a shame as kenwood normally have great products.

Given that Eva is also ambivilent about having children this book raises interesting questions around parental responsibility and whether or not you've given birth to a "Damien". If you didn't want the child do they instinctively know this and is this why Kevin turns out the way he does - or is this just how he was born to be? This question never gets answered, but the journey to the end in this book is thought provoking and ultimately tragic. There is… Read more
