3.0 out of 5 stars Expensive but well worth it, or is it ? Updated review, 24 Aug. 2017
Much faster at pressurising than the previous aluminium tower model [4374] with the long handles, with water just covering the trivet base it took 2.5 minutes for the red indicator to rise using my largest gas hob, one minute later the blue pressure indicator had risen, at this point the large hob was still much too hot, even when turned down to a simmer, to maintain the low steady pressure so had to move onto the smallest burner, again down to simmer, for the duration of cooking. So far very impressed, highly recommend, size would be suitable for a couple as in our case
Now its actually in regular use my enthusiasm has deminished quite a bit, what I am finding is that the product being in stainless steel is much heavier than the usual aluminium ones on offer, the lid alone weighs a ton, bringing the cooker up to pressure you must remember to shut the steam vent valve, then watch for the red sealing valve to rise, then wait for the blue indicator to lift until the blue band shows, which coincides with the safety valve blowing, then you can turn down the hob and start timing, [thrown the timer away it was pathetic], There seems to be too much to watch and in the long run its not that much better than a conventional pressure cooker, just a lot dearer

it was too thick at the blade to open a gap, resorted to a wallpaper scraper for this task then moved straight to the plastic wedge to complete the bead removal

2.0 out of 5 stars I will use something different another time, 17 May 2017
It may do a good job of deodorising a carpet but it also does a good job of sandblasting the clear plastic dirt container as can be seen on our almost new vac, it is now opaque instead of being clear, moral of the story use an old vac to lift this stuff off the carpet

Non stick coating is fine but the base of the pan has now distorted and no longer sits flat, will have to do some adjustments with my hammer

3.0 out of 5 stars Depending where you are double check with a map, 29 Mar. 2017
Used to love the Garmin until I holidayed in the Fens, that when I lost confidence and had to revert to the good old road maps, no matter what settings I used the Garmin refused to include a great many of the more rural roads through villages, instead routing me on main roads that added many miles and much time to each trip, indeed a lot of intersections and minor roads were not shown at all, then it placed me on the wrong lane of a motorway to exit. Well I've had a Mio and now a Garmin, wonder how good Tomtoms are ?

5.0 out of 5 stars Typical China delivery, 11 Mar. 2017

Good item that looks as if the joint will be secure and weatherproof, just wish it had been clearer the delivery was from China meaning the job was delayed by a fortnight, had I known I would have payed a little more for a UK supplier

1.0 out of 5 stars Not a good purchase, 11 Mar. 2017
As an extension reel it does its job, but to rewind back onto the reel is a nightmare, three hands are needed to have success, the cable continually jams as it bunches up on itself requiring guiding as it is rewound, I have a 10 mtr reel that gives no trouble at all so I wonder if the cable used in the SMJ 15 mtr is less flexible. Once rewound it is neat and tidy but next time I would look at the open drum type
