5.0 out of 5 stars Kettle Heaven!, 14 Dec. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The kettle arrived in excellent condition, it was easy to set up and I love the see through glass and blue light that emits when the kettle boils, it also has a neat feature where you can set the program to a temperature of between 50 and 95 degrees centigrade and it will keep the kettle at that temperature for two hours, very useful for more cups and fill ups, not just a gimmick, you will use this feature.

I also bought this because its chemical free glass, no plastics involved, in my opinion this has to make the taste better and long term health wise I feel chemicals in plastics must be affecting us all so to not have them in products like these is a good thing.

Not much else I can write, it's a cordless kettle, 1.7litres max capacity and so far it's working great.

4.0 out of 5 stars Raid the blu ray Tomb!, 14 Dec. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
First off I have to say Amazon do themselves no favours by lumping in reviews for DVD or foreign language German editions, this review is for the English speaking 15 certificate on the front of the disc case U.K. Edition, two films for £4.99.

Tomb Raider is censored on DVD, on blu ray it is now uncut, that's why the package has the new 15 certificate.

Both films are good in my opinion but the second one, Cradle of Life, is superior and has an excellent orchestral music score, the picture quality is fine for two films which have had 2k scans, obviously a future re-release using a 4K film scan and downconversion will yield superior results.

Sound quality is also very good, all in all I do not think you can go wrong for the present price of £4.99.

It's just a shame Angelina never did a third one.

4.0 out of 5 stars Powerful Air Watts = High Suction Power!, 8 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I love this hoover, it has high air watt power meaning you only need to go over the carpet once and it picks up even small particles on the floor, the attached pets turbo brush has a rotating head and it works, it picks up cat hair, you do have to go over the couch maybe two times for cat hair to be absolutely thorough but its effortless.

I also have a Dyson, it looks great, very stylish but unfortunately it just doesn't do a great job of picking up small particles from the carpet or couch, i have to go over the same spot over half a dozen times or more and it still refuses to pick up things, this is time consuming and it's also annoying as you buy a vacuum cleaner to clean your house and if the air watts power is low then it won't do a good job.

The bottom line is that the Hoover purepower with pets turbo tool is excellent, it has an attached hose that means i can do the stairs without taking the vacuum cleaner upstairs and it just has a different level of performance compared to other cleaners i have used in the past, it's such a shame the European Union has outlawed powerful vacuum cleaners and soon there will be nothing that works as good that you can buy, just weak underpowered machines with low air watts.

Pros:

1) High air watts - It picks up the tiniest of floor particles.
2) The pet turbo brush has a rotating head and it's good at picking up pet hairs.
3) The hose is very flexible and reaches right to the top of the stairs.
4) It is now effortless to vacuum the carpets, rugs and couch.

Cons:

1) It is noisy, i measured 84 decibels using my SPL meter.
2) You need to spend additional money on bags
3) The vacuum can tip over or moves if you are using the hose, so be careful with that.

Now you do have to be careful because as i mention above the vacuum cleaner can tip over if using the hose extension and it tips right over too, i found the best thing to do when using the hose is to place the vacuum at it's lowest position, this means the handle area is right down at floor level, after you do this it's fine and will not tip over.

All in all i am very pleased with the purchase, the noise is 84 decibels but i tend to get the hoovering done a lot quicker these days so that isn't much of a problem for me and i only knock a star off due to the fact it can tip over when using the hose, that caught me out the first time i used it, luckily i didn't have it positioned over the television area or it could have caused some damage.

Very pleased with the purchase and it's good value for money, buy it before it becomes extinct.

4.0 out of 5 stars It Stands and Delivers!, 28 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
You can pay hundreds of pounds for TV stands or you can pay a lot less, i paid a lot less for this particular brand and do not regret it, this is a very high quality product, i am using it for audio/video gear, not a television, the AV equipment sitting on it is heavy and the weight is around the same as a 42 inch or 50 inch television, the stand easily takes it, lots of space on the shelves and with three of them i can fit all my gear on it, it has a nice cable management system at the back which also acts as a middle support for the stand, not much more i can add, it's an excellent stand at a cheap price, my only criticism is that piano black attracts fingerprint smudges and dust too easily, hence i knock a star off, i'd have preferred a matt black colour but that isn't available.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pinocchio's Favourite Brush!, 28 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Good quality wooden broom, it sweeps well, very sturdy, you can put a lot of power into your sweeping with this brush and so far the bristles are holding together great, if this changes i will come back and amend the review but so far i heartily recommend this sweeping broom, it gets the job done and does it well.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Brush Makes A Difference!, 28 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I like the new brush which comes with this glue, so often in the past i have tried glueing things and ended up with glue on my fingers, not with this easy brush glue, it gets the job done much better, if i had a criticism it would be that the brush does open up and starts looking a bit messy after a while, although it's still useable, i would buy this again over normal brands, the brush is a great idea and this glue also works with fabrics.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superior Cat Litter!, 28 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have tried a few different varieties of cat litter but always come back to this stuff, it is superior quality and clumps really well, i tried changing to a cheaper supermarket brand but it took more effort to clean the litter tray, i changed back to this and do not regret it, it is so much easier to clean up after the cat does her business, although it says 15KG you actually get 40 liters of the stuff delivered, local shops sell it for £8 for 10 liters so that's a substantial saving by ordering from Amazon, highly recommended.

Cleo, my cat, wants me to add to this review and mention how much she loves it, she wanted to write her own review but her paws kept hitting the wrong keys.

4.0 out of 5 stars Tapetastic!, 28 Sept. 2014
I bought this to keep a large size rug from moving on the floor in the kitchen, it does the job very well, this rug is walked on often but has not moved once since putting this tape beneath the rug, bit tricky lining it up on the floor since the rug is huge but i managed it and getting straight to the point, it works and i'd recommend it,

3.0 out of 5 stars A Tack A Day Keeps The Doctor Away!, 28 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I'll keep this short, the pins or tacks as i call them are okay, they occasionally bend or break but only if you are putting them into very tough hard wood or thick material, i'd say 10% to 15% do this, so they are mostly good, i'll give them three stars as in okay.
