While this adapter works for most items with a standard US/European plug, it won't work in all cases - this is because of the large circular protrusion on the front, which for most large electrical items is fine e.g. TV, etc.
Note that most of these items are only rated at 1 or 2 amps (equates to 240-480W Max), so they may blow fuses if you use more current E.g. if you plug in something like a washing machine, or in my case a Nintendo Wii that was bought in Germany. (Although the wii only uses about 65W in operation it draws a large surge when you turn it on, blowing the fuse)
Most likely though you'll be using it because, like me you'll have a friend visiting from Europe, or have bought some cheap consumer electronics in the US. Here lies the problem: your friend from Europe will want to charge his/her phone or digital camera battery. However, because a phone charger is a different shape it won't fit because of the large round protrusion at the front.
There are other items on amazon with a flush front for inserting a US/European plug. These are better, and you should be able to charge your electrical devices no matter what shape the plug is.
TIP: my favourite adapters for US/European to UK plugs are the shaver sockets you get in Tesco/Asda for 75p approx.
Not all shaver sockets (2 socket to 3 pin plug) will do as the pins on European 2 pin plugs are spaced further apart than a UK shaver plug, and US plugs are two flat vertical prongs.
The key to identifying shaver sockets that work with European and US plugs is that the holes in the socket are "D" shaped (not round) with the flat edge of the "D"s facing towards the centre.
