NESCAFE Dolce Gusto Oblo by KRUPS Coffee Capsule M&hellip by Krups
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I had very high expectations of the Krups Dolce Gusto Oblo because we have had a Krups Dolce Gusto Genio since 2012, and have really learned to appreciate the finer quality of the coffee over our old instant coffee in a jar. We love the Genio, but the new Oblo just doesn't measure up. If this had been our first coffee machine, we would not have given it enough time, and probably returned to the instant jar once we ran out of pods.

BRITA Fill&Go Water Filter Bottle Incl. 4 Filter D&hellip by Brita

A very convenient way to have filtered water at your fingertips no matter where you are. Early to fill, easy to change the filters, and more attractive looking than the alternatives on the market. Can be used with or without the straw, so if you prefer to suck, that's possible, but if you prefer to pour, take the straw out (easily) and off you go!

- The light given off is a warm glow
- We have it installed on a fence post where it illuminates the bottom end if the garden when the dogs go out in the evening
- It can be turned on when required, and off when not (also a con), so saves using all the power on cloudier days
- We tend to leave it on because it directs the light out and down, unlike our main garden light, so minimises light pollution
- During the summer months, it is charging up enough to switch on at dusk, and is still glowing throughout the night, I have certainly looked out at 3am to see it still on. As we have it… Read more
