5.0 out of 5 stars Superb, 19 Aug. 2015
Beats the competition hands down, keep it gentle and it's incredible. So much easier and more effective than any other sharpener I've used. The average home kitchen doesn't need anything better.

Good sturdy quality product. Surprisingly they might actually be slightly large side. But that's a lot better than the normal alternative.

They also have really deep pockets which is a definite plus.

I know it's not great quality, and I didn't expect much from a £10 belt although it was worse than I expected. However I did at least expect it it to vaguely approach the size range I'd ordered. The packaging gave the size I ordered so I wasn't sent the wrong size but the actual thing itself simply didn't fit around my waist, the tips just about met let alone leave a few notches as the sizing should have done, this is not a it's a bit of a tight fit scenario. It is a this is simply not the length they claim it is scenario.

I don't know if they had simply packed the wrong size in the factory or if they are using belts that are too small. Either way I'm returning it and i'd avoid in the future.

2.0 out of 5 stars Looks nice build quality just awful, 3 Aug. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I used this to cycle to work Monday to Friday for 3 months. Most of the time I wasn't using the water pouch. It's now just broken.

Pros -
comfortable to wear
Pretty well designed

Cons
The build quality is abysmal.
The chest strap just outright fell off when there wasn't any reason for it to.
The zips are awful. The zippers to the main pack fell off one by and were impossible to put back on so the bag is now useless., even a quite full bag could cause the zips to come undone.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good enough for the price but not the classic it is often made out to be., 4 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It's not quite the classic I expected after hearing about it.

It does actually seem quite dated and of it's era and a bunch of stuff I just don't think is worth trying but some of it is pretty good and some good ideas and recipes but not quite deserving of it's reputation.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just as fantastic and indispensable as I'd heard., 4 Aug. 2014
Will become an instant permanent fixture in your kitchen.

Even better than I expected, It is the one very modern addition to every kitchen Rory O'Connell recommends in Master It! so I gave it a go and agree cause it's brilliant and everyone should have one.

It has a bunch of uses zesting and fine grating are only 2.

Top tip from that book use this to crush garlic, you don't need to take off the skin of the cloves as it comes off and doesn't grate just grate the clove and you get crushed garlic instantly. A related tip is just don't bother with garlic presses, they are useless, use this or just a knife.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best edition yet., 9 July 2014
I am specifically reviewing the deluxe edition not the comic. The fact that this is probably the best comic series ever written should be taken as read.

Just arrived, Good quality paper and fantastic printing. The colours look really good and noticeably better than on the old trade paperback.

The issue covers artwork is just slotted in the book at the start of each issue with all the stuff like the title, price and barcode removed so it actually feels a bit more like a single book than a collection of issues as the separation is less distinct than in the old trade paperbacks.

There is also a side chapter from an issue of absolute vertigo which I don't think has been collected elsewhere.

Good size and heft. Looks like the picture. I've named him Tiki Joe and he's taken his place in my life.

Arrived in good packaging as well.

1.0 out of 5 stars I'd avoid as these are nothing like the picture and terrible, 7 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The picture is nothing like the products as received.

Those look like good chili pepper pete's dried chilis. What I got were like hard cardboard and do not rehydrate well, chop well, grind well and cannot be used without re-hydration and that still terrible. Even after frying in oil with garlic and onion and cooking in a chilli for probably 1.5 hours they still came out inedible and chewy (something I've never had an issue with before with other chilis). On the not so bad side they have a perfectly adequate flavour.

They say they are sourced from Chili Pepper Pete's (who are excellent) but having used them several times direct from their website and shop there seems to be no relation to the products they sell from their store and this. No indication on the label either so I'm suspicious they are from there at all, They came in cheap cellophane-like wrapping not sealed airtight packets.

I would avoid and go for proper chilli pepper pete's or other quality supplier stuff.
