iGadgitz Black EVA Travel Hard Case Cover Sleeve f&hellip by iGadgitz

I was a bit suspicious, what with it being so cheap, but opted for this case for my Kindle as I didn't want something that added to the weight when reading (you can't really read the Kindle when it's in this case - the elastic strap would get in the way), but did want something solid to protect it when it was in a bag, or a pocket or generally lying around.

The case is solid - the sides are stiff, almost as stiff as the cover of a hardback book - and the outer covering is hard-wearing; sort of like cordura. The inside is soft and fits the Kindle snugly.

Throughout the book he's borrowed Dame Ellen's… Read more

I was given one of these a couple of weeks ago, so can't comment on it's durability yet, though it looks as if it'll last.

I asked for a manual juicer as I felt there were more than enough electrical appliances knocking around in the kitchen already. This is a fairly compact thing and can be put in a drawer when dismantled.

It takes about 15 minutes to juice 12 carrots, which gives about half a pint of carrot juice - that includes pulling the thing to pieces and rinsing it afterwards, and cutting up the carrots beforehand (small pieces much quicker to juice).

The suction pad on the underside needs an utterly smooth surface, otherwise you need to clamp, which… Read more
