Good quality product delivered very quickly (the seller is first rate).
I really didn't like the colour though - much darker than the picture suggests.
Great price, so a good buy if you're happy with this particular shade.

A very good buy for the price. The round shape means that there is a bit more surface available to me having had a larger, oval one. I'm pleased with its performance. Recommended.

A very good recipe book with the usual banter. I do like their unpretentious approach to cooking ... and, as a welcome bonus to some other books, their recipes actually work!

Service from the seller was, as usual, first rate. The trousers are very well made and a good fit. The colour description might be better as "olive green" as there isn't much like "stone" there - hence the missing star. Given the price, a very good buy!

This is great either as a washbag or a "man bag". Small though, so I just can't see how it would be any use as a gym or overnight bag. For my purposes, excellent.

A nice looking bit of kit which does the job and has a good heavyweight feel to it. A bit pricey in my opinion hence the lost star.

This is simply NOT deep cup. It's lightweight & is the kind of thing that might be used in a primary school cooking class.
If you want quality,go to Lakeland.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Performance, 28 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was very, very dubious about buying this item. I wanted a stand mixer purely for bread dough and had read a number of off - putting reviews about other makes and their ability to cope with this task.

I decided to take the plunge given the great price, and it duly arrived well packaged and on time.

I've now used it for 500gm and 1kg loaves. (It claims to be able to deal with dough up to 1.5kg but I haven't needed that weight.)

* It doesn't move around the surface but sticks securely to it;

* the noise level is very moderate indeed ... much quieter than my hand blender;

* it deals with ingredients right down to the bottom of the bowl;

* it's quick and thorough.

Yes, you will need to raise the hook once to push down the dough that clings to it, but that's all.

So why four stars instead of five given its performance and price? Well, it looks fairly cheap and that will no doubt be of interest to those as concerned with style as with delivery of the end result. And, of course, you can spend another hundred or two buying something with a better known name and more stylish appearance, but this beast does the trick for me and I bake a lot!

From my point of view (and I have the revised edition) this is a pretty good book. As far as I can tell, he gives enough information rather than overloading the baker with the minutiae. Illustrations are clear. Worth having as an adjunct to a more basic book for the inexperienced.

The item arrived very quickly & was sensibly packaged. Excellent price for what are light, roomy shorts with an inner mesh support for the danglies. Very pleased.
