I rated this 3 star as it was delivered with a large dent on one side of the product. It works alright and has two heat settings, low and high, and an auto facility which keeps the food hot, only after the food has been thoroughly cooked. I had a refund in the end, due to Habitat the Supplier being difficult on returning the item. Overall a smart Slow Cooker, ideal for the single person.

The book was in good condition and prompt service from the bookseller: However, the book now is rather dated and the style of the text is difficult to follow. It's before Dictionaries used 'two colour' text, Headword and Definition of the Word, to aid understanding and clarity, and build up one's knowledge base of vocabulary. That said, it's useful for Reference and for doing for example, Crosswords and the like.
