Braun TS755 Iron, 2400 Watt, White/ Blue by Braun
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Like most people, I'm no fan of ironing. But with this iron... well, it's still ironing, but it's just a little bit easier than with other ones I've had to use in the past. It heats up quickly, glides smoothly over fabrics, and is surprisingly easy to get into even the most niggly little collars and corners. It holds a decent amount of water, and the steam function does a good job on hard-to-remove creases. There's even an auto switch-off function for doofuses like me who are inclined to forget to unplug it after use. If I could change one thing on it, it would be to have a longer cable - 2.5m is not too shabby, but I would like to be able to use it a bit further away from the wall socket.
Trunki PaddlePak Water-Resistant Backpack - Pinch &hellip by Trunki
4.0 out of 5 stars You know, for kids!, 3 July 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
It should be obvious from the product description, but this is a product for kids. Small ones. Still, that didn't stop my 18 year-old daughter from wanting one. It is too small for her, though she still uses it, because she loves it. The design is very attractive and it's well built, hopefully well-enough that any toddler bought one will be able to carry on using it until they can only do so ironically. Great backpack! For kids.
Rio Quick Waxer by Rio
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I got this for my wife, and after a couple of uses she has already abandoned it as it is not very useful. It holds only a small amount of wax, and takes several minutes to warm up. Suitable only for waxing very small areas (e.g. eyebrows), and it works OK for these, but for the price it hardly seems worthwhile.
