3.0 out of 5 stars I'll continue to give a glance over my shoulder., 27 May 2017

After testing these, I pulled the adjusting part off and stuck the dome mirror to the main mirror with 3M tape. The adjustment bit left a large gap which I didn't like.

In use, the mirror does show the blind spot but it's really small and it would be easy to miss a biker etc.

I'll continue to give a glance over my shoulder, rather than rely on this.

4.0 out of 5 stars Useful a 2nd or 3rd pan but not an essential in the kitchen., 21 May 2017
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I liked the additional height of this pan, making it ideal for tasks such as steaming a pudding or cooking smaller amounts of penne or fusilli pasta for lunch. Could be used for rice with less chance of the water bubbling over onto the hob.

On a gas-hob I can't say I noticed is was any different in the time to boil water than my other pans. The non-stick is effective and their is a solidity to the pan I liked, it's got a decent thickness of metal.

I few things I was less keen on -

1) The handle has a differently coloured plastic insert which I hopes would be soft-touch style for a better grip, but it's not
2) The underside of the handle has a recess which will collected water when placed upside-down in a dish-washer
3) There's no steam outlet in the lid, although my other lids fitted OK
4) I didn't like the 'T' handle on the lid, preferring a round knob for a more secure grip.

All in all, useful a 2nd or 3rd pan but not an essential in the kitchen.

5.0 out of 5 stars You pay, you get!, 18 May 2017
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
With a premium price tag, you'd expect a everything about this cable to be top-quality and it is without any gimmicks.

Presentation is good with the cable boxed with a flip out cover, letting you see the cable behind a cellophane window. The box shows the main feature of a Kevlar inner core to the cable, tightly-woven nylon cover etc. Also highlighted is the 5-year warranty.

Out the box, the cable reminded me of a high-grade audio cable in feel. The connector have a good sized rubber strain relief and highly polished connector covers. The braided cable doesn't kink and is smooth to the touch.

Plugging into my HP laptop and Lumia 950 the connectors felt very solid, forming a perfect fit and holding tight. The devices immediately connected and charging the phone commenced at maximum rate.

I'd be very confident using this cable on a long trip where reliability was paramount and you wanted certainty of continued operation with minimal chance of broken wires or uncertain connections.

4.0 out of 5 stars Works, but is it value for money?, 16 May 2017
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I remember my mum used to put food into plastic bags, suck out the air and seal with a wire twist to keep it fresher. This is the hi-tech and possibly more hygienic version.

The unit is very well packaged with instruction in many languages. Importantly you do get one container and 5 bags supplied. There's also a voucher code for 20% discount when you buy more accessories from the supplier's web-site. When I checked, they were also offering 30% off - not sure if the discounts can both be applied. The item feels like a quality unit, with smooth action when moving the suction head up and down. The mains lead isn't especially generous, however.

In black and brushed metal the unit looks good and could be left out for convenience, it's not much larger than a kettle.

I was taken aback at the price of the containers, £8 (before the discounts) for one of the smallest! They are crystal clear and dish-washer safe but even so...The bags are more sensibly priced and are also reusable. The instructions say not to put the bags into the freezer, only fridge or larder, but don't say why.

The appliance couldn't be simpler to use, adjust the vacuum head over the container/bag outlet until the green 'ready' light comes on, press button and wait until the air is removed and the machine switches itself off, this takes a few seconds and isn't especially noisy when the air-pump is running - about the same as a coffee grinder. Opening the container then requires pressing a button to release the vacuum.

I tried the bags with pieces of cheese, and that worked very well with the bag tightly enveloping the food. Samosas weren't squashed due to the vacuum but anything softer like cup-cakes would be and would need to go into a rigid container. Overnight, the bags kept the vacuum OK.

The suppliers also highlight use of the bags to take sandwiches on a picnic and keep from curling-up and also bagging silverware to keep from tarnishing.

Is is worth having another appliance to find a space for in the kitchen cupboard and spend on special containers and bags? All in all, I think using the bags to keep chopped fruit & veg, cheese. small portions of left-overs etc. in the fridge makes sense, also biscuits can be kept from going soft. However, the very high price of the rigid containers doesn't seem justified, plus vacuum packing food then putting into the freezer is maybe OTT for most cooks.

Not too large, but sufficient to hold a set of wheel nuts. Heavy base with rubber cover, this could be used on table-top without marking. Magnet isn't crazy strong, you can slide washers etc. to the side and left them up.

4.0 out of 5 stars Ideal for key-fobs, phones not so much, 7 May 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
With the growing issue of keyless entry/start vehicles been stolen by "hackers", these are ideal of you are out and the car is parked or you don't have a locking garage.

Just put the key fob into the metallised pocket and it 'invisible' to anyone trying to pick-up a signal and replay closer to the car.

Also handy to keep the spare in, so it's not able to detect or send any signals

4.0 out of 5 stars Keeps the grass green and growing, 7 May 2017

I have my lawn laid on 6cm of grit due to the winter rains, so it desiccates super-quick if there is a dry spell. This keeps the grass green and growing, easy to use and adjust.

No leaks from the connectors, quite flimsy handle and body- I hope it'll get through a season's use without breaking.
