1.0 out of 5 stars Don't work...., 22 Feb. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
No matter what was tried, no matter how many times the smooth tile and glass surfaces were cleaned and dried.... these fell with minimal load (a dry face cloth) within an hour.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not as expected., 18 Feb. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Not very forgiving stretch wise - tight on arms and I don't have huge arms - and obvious gaps and holes that require darning immediately.
Not the best quality tbh.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not instant at all. Expensive., 6 Feb. 2017
I bought a box of these 'instant ' oats to take camping - oats in mug, hot water, sorted.
No such thing here. These are not instant at all.
Yes, it's very handy to be able to measure the milk or water in the oats sachet... but then these 'instant ' oats instructions say to microwave for 2 1/2 mins or simmer on the hob in a pan......
Hardly instant when it's the same you do for any old oats from anywhere.
There are other manufacturers who do make properly quick oats that only need a mug and hot water, and they're cheaper as well as GF too.
So in short, overpriced and not as advertised.

1.0 out of 5 stars Unfit for purpose., 17 Jan. 2017
I have now tried 2 of these clip book style covers for my phone.
The only difference was that the design on the outside was an owl on one, and solid pink for the other, but the same thing of this absolutely not fitting the phone it is marketed for remained the same for both.
I only tried again in case the first failure was a one-off fault, as can happen in a large production run... there will be the odd one or 2 that don't come up to scratch.... but twice? The same issue?
Each cover looked decent, but try to put your phone in and it very quickly becomes clear that the clip arms are not deep enough to make any purchase or hold onto the phone, and to put any more effort into this endeavour is to risk snapping the plastic arms right out, or in half even as you try to drag them up high enough to reach more than only half way up the side of the phone, or you may well find that you're pressing down on the phone screen in some hope that this will lower the phone enough into the cradle area that the arms will get some purchase.... don't do that, your phone is worth more and a smashed screen is not what you want.

Save your money and your disappointment and don't buy this. it will not fit.

3.0 out of 5 stars OK if you don't mind 'making' something fit and work..., 21 Dec. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this to use in the chicken run, thinking it could hold enough corn to be of interest to the chooks, and that using the little carabiniers that it would hang off the wire around their run.

It proved to be somewhat awkward to hang, as the carabiniers can't be turned around on the holes... maybe the holes could have been placed nearer the edge of the plastic, allowing then for more manoeuvre space to allow for ease of hanging...?

Just in case this is an important matter for some, the picture shows a brown thing, but in the flesh it is quite a depth green actually. The plastic material is quite sturdy, and looks and feels as if it will withstand a goodly amount of eager bird pecking efforts.

For those who can mix and match things to make them work, this is OK - tie wraps could replace the clips, and the back holder part could take a block of suet for chooks to peck at... but maybe a coop cup form elsewhere would be more easily useful and cheaper.

So, in short, it's OK, but I couldn't recommend with any great enthusiasm.

My chooks are not really at all impressed with this, and it looks to me as if there's no corn in it at all.... but it'll have to do. Will take forever to use up though, they're that unhappy with it :-(

1.0 out of 5 stars Cheap and nasty, broke on 2nd use., 10 Dec. 2016
Made of cheap plastic throughout (except the actual blades) and thus is not fit for purpose.

2nd time of using, and something within the mechanism has snapped, rendering this utterly useless.

If you're looking for something to do a little more than whip a couple of eggs, which you can do very well using a fork and a cup in a couple of seconds without all the faff of putting a machine together and all the cleaning up aftrewards, then save your money and put it towards an actual processor....

Nasty.

5.0 out of 5 stars A good Basic starting point for novices, 28 Nov. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having tried and miserably failed to grow any bonsai many years ago, I had thought that would be it - a bonsai free household.

Taking courage on both hands, I decided to try again, but this time with a tree that would not need specialist management that as a complete amateur I would clearly not have, as well as with a tree that was already growing well and established.

Next notion was to find a guide book for someone like me, a novice to the craft but someone who likes to think they're not utterly moronic and can understand if given the necessary information. A book that would give me sufficient information to keep me interested - I like and perhaps need to know the 'why' of something, the underlying reason and explanation, in order to then maybe fulfil the instruction more fully...

This little gem of a book was discovered at a super bargain price, and is clear enough using pictures to show techniques as well as narrative and technical info to keep both the utter newbie and the slightly more advanced beginner engaged.

This is a Book of Basics, a starting point from which a person may proceed further if they wish in due course, but it is a Basic book. It shows and tells how to look after an already growing tree, what equipment you will require, and also gives a section on the different trees that can be bought along with how tricky they may be to keep well and healthy. It does not include anything about how to grow from scratch - I might imagine the time required to nurture a tree from a seed could well turn off a beginner and perhaps might involved technical that are rather more in the realm of advanced practitioners...

A good starter book with enough detail to keep a novice referring back time and again. Thank you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good for tent carpetting., 30 Sept. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Lovely lovely lovely!

On a recommendation, I bought a single one of these furniture removal blankets for use in my bell tent, and it is absolutely brilliant :)

Not so big that it requires cutting and then sewing up to stop any fraying, and not so think and heavy that it's a pain to fold and carry. It is big enough to be a good sizeable floor covering so when you potter about in the tent you can do so in bare feet if you wish and not get that awful cold damp feel underfoot from the plastic groundsheet.
Super job, well recommended, and so much cheaper to get one of these than to go to a camping shop and pay loads for a named brand of footprint carpet thing ;)

5.0 out of 5 stars Cheaper than aquarium cleaning brushes ;), 30 Sept. 2016

Bought this, but not for me......

Got it for scrubbing the fish tank ornaments, and I am not disappointed :)
Works really well, and is sooooooo much cheaper than buying aquarium stuff ;)
