Vax Air Silence Eco Cylinder Vacuum Cleaner by Vax
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
With the new EU regulations designed to save the planet by limiting the size of motors in cleaners, this is one of a lot of new introductions which are claimed by manufacturers to be just as effective at cleaning as their larger motored brethren. This particular model has the new EU label which gives guidance as to energy use, cleaning performance on carpets and hard floors, and dust emissions.

This machine not only complies with the new regulations, which is for motors to be not more than 1600W, but also the next round to be introduced in… Read more

Salad Love: How to Create a Lunchtime Salad, Every&hellip by David Bez
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Salad Love, as the name implies, is fairly single minded in guiding the reader towards a wide variety of different salads. Over 260 to be more specific. Although specified as lunchtime salads I see no particular reason why a salad should be exclusively a lunchtime treat. It is not the most complicated of books since making a salad is hardly the most complicated of procedures. It kicks off with a variety of different ingredients which can be used and then goes on to the specific salads, one page for each with an illustration.

Of course, what goes into a salad is really only limited by your imagination. If your salad making is in a rut and you tend towards the salad, tomato… Read more
