Salter Slim Design Electronic Platform Kitchen Sca&hellip by Salter
I have had these scales for over 3 years now and never changed the battery. To be fair I don't cook much - still they last. They are simple and very easy to use. Click for on / off - or 0. Then click through the other button for various measurements lbs / g / ml etc...

Ancol Just 4 Pets Vintage House Bed, Red Polka by Ancol
It is quite a large house bigger then I expected. Well made and Velcro sticks the roof to the walls. It also looks great. Unfortunately neither of my cats took to it.

I feel a bit mean giving it only two stars especially since the lady at my local charity shop was so happy to be given it. The simple fact is my cats didn't like it. Sorry.
