Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This vacuum cleaner does exactly what it says it will: it is light, compact and has very strong suction. The tools are well designed and fit easily. I set it some quite robust tasks Ė the kitchen floor after I had been cooking, a pale beige carpet with mud tracks and the sofa where my predominantly white cat had been sleeping and it coped very well.

Part One tells you everything you need to know about pasta: its history, what it is, the different types, the relationship between pasta and sauces. Its place in the Italian kitchen, how to make fresh pasta, and finally, the pasta code which tells you exactly how you should cook and serve pasta and the reasons these methods have… Read more
