Philips GC8616/30 PerfectCare Aqua Iron Steam Gene&hellip by Philips
4.0 out of 5 stars Make's life easy..., 28 Aug 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This iron has some fantastic features. It heats up in 2 minutes, to a heat that allows you to iron quickly and efficiently. It glides easily over clothes, and the iron itself is lightweight and small, idea for delicate materials.

The drawback, however - slight but fundamental -- is that the base (containing the water) is heavy; and if sat on the ironing board, makes things unstable. Likewise, the hose isn't quite long enough to have it on the floor. Therefore, like me, you'll probably want to stand it on a handy chair.

That said, it iron makes quick work of a family of five's ironing. And that can't be bad!
Pasta: The Essential New Collection from the Maste&hellip by Antonio Carluccio
5.0 out of 5 stars Truly scrumptious!, 21 Aug 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Quite possibly the best pasta cookbook I've read. You'd expect it from Caluccio, but the book is nevertheless gorgeous. Walk into a bargain bookstore, and you'll see oodles of pasta recipe books.

There's an excellent section on making (and identifying), the many different pastas, sauces, crucial Italian ingredients (and their roots), and with recipes broken down into... 'pastas in soup', '... with sauces', 'baked...', 'pasta salads and leftovers' and '...as deserts' it's certainly thorough.

A great touch is how… Read more
AmazonBasics 10-Inch Black Sleeve for iPad Air / K&hellip by AmazonBasics
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Great, great protection for the iPad. I've a few Amazon Basics, and they've all been excellent quality - but this iPad sleeve is the best so far. Made out of what feels like a diver's dry-suit type material, the sleeve is really well padded. The fit is snug but not tight, and if you're someone who takes theirs out of the house a lot, this has got to be the perfect sleeve for protection in bags.

And while it might be labelled a basic, in terms of look, the sleeve - in my opinion -- is far cooler than those bright, and rather fussy, coloured ones you can get.

Highly recommended.
