Brabantia Ice Water Ironing Board, Size B, 124 x 3&hellip by Brabantia
1 of 1 people found the following review helpful
I chose to purchase a more expensive ironing board as I have not been satisfied with cheaper boards purchased from supermarkets in recent years. The first good point was the way in which the legs clipped securely into the underside for safer storage. Secondly, I am delighted with the full height of the board when in use, which enables me to have a much better upright posture for ironing. The board stands firmly in position. The surface/cover is well padded and the size is indicated at the stand end of the cover which saves measuring up to buy future covers. The stand for the steam iron is useful. Very pleased with purchase and would certainly recommend it.

I chose to purchase this piece of equipment to aid pressing with all various stages of dressmaking/home sewing. The construction makes It easy to position on main ironing board with a simple pull push movement to erect and likewise to flatten for storage. Well padded surface. I would certainly recommend the sleeve board for dressmakers, tailors and for ironing children's clothes as it enables pressing small intricate areas very well.

Interesting, informative with delicious recipes. Loved the presentation with the pictures of French vocabulary for equipment and ingredients required for recipes at the start of the book. Also loved colourful little maps of each region at the start of each section and the photographs of Rachel and the French countryside. First recipe tried, Chocolate Chestnut Truffles, simple ingredients and not too difficult for a first time chocolate maker. So good, these truffles are now being made for Christmas gifts! The book is an ideal gift for people for love all things French.
