OXO Good Grips Nut/Seafood Cracker
OXO Good Grips Nut/Seafood Cracker
Price: £10.00

3.0 out of 5 stars OK but not as good as I had hoped, 22 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having previously bought an OXO can opener, which is the cat's whiskers, I was hoping for a really good nut cracker. In fact it is OK but not as good as my previous excellent cracker that broke after many years of service. This nut cracker requires a lot of pressure to crack several varieties of nut and they tend to shatter suddenly and the pieces fly everywhere.

4.0 out of 5 stars Useful supplement to regular visits to a dental hygienist, 21 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is not like cleaning your teeth with a toothbrush. You actually have to work quite hard to get the desired result, but it is worth the effort and it does remove plaque and tartar if you persevere. The mirror seems a little flimsy but is OK so far. For two picks and a mirror the price is very reasonable.

4.0 out of 5 stars Reasonable price for Epson cartridges, 31 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If one is using a printer as expensive as this it pays to buy genuine Epson cartridges. Anyway I have not been 100% satisfied with alternative cartridges used on other Epson printers. Buying the full set of nine cartridges means that it works out cheaper than buying the cartridges individually, though the difference is not large. It seems that Amazon always uses Amazon Market Place firms to deliver cartridges and no doubt some offer a speedier service than others. One thing to watch out for when looking for the cheapest price is that some firms offer only eight cartridges as a set, including matte black or photo black but not both.

Price: £39.95

4.0 out of 5 stars Twice the capacity but not twice the price., 31 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Perhaps I have been unlucky with compatible cartridges but I have had so many duds (or perhaps it is the fault of the printers?) that I now always buy genuine Epson cartridges. Unless a computer is used very infrequently it makes sense to buy these Apple cartridges instead of Fox because Apple have twice the capacity but are less than twice the price.


Little Nipper Rat Trap (Single)
Little Nipper Rat Trap (Single)
Price: £2.79

3.0 out of 5 stars I prefer the plastic traps, 31 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These are not easy to set to the right sensitivity. Hence the trap will sometimes fail to go off as the bait is taken. However, if one perseveres then they will catch rats. I have no real complaint about these wooden traps but I much prefer the plastic ones:

The wooden nipper traps can quickly become dirty and have ingrained blood. The plastic traps are easier to set, easier to clean, and easier to release the dead rodents.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good value, 31 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This hose is made entirely of PVC, with an outer layer that is designed (successfully) to look like chrome. The gauge is narrower than the original hose it replaced but not unacceptably so. It was so easy to fit that my wife (who does not usually undertake such tasks) did it quickly and easily. If you look at this hose side by side with a Mira hose one would no doubt choose the Mira, but this hose is much cheaper and good value.

5.0 out of 5 stars Have used them for 20 years, 30 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have been using these mole traps for almost 20 years and have caught many moles. No matter how carefully one sets them they do go off sometimes without catching a mole. However, if one perseveres then the mole will be trapped. When you do catch one remove the dead mole and, avoiding touching the claws with bare hands, reset the trap. The smell of the dead mole will attract any other mole nearby.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not very big but works well, 30 July 2014

A tad on the small size but it does heat up quickly and is comfortable to lie on.

4.0 out of 5 stars They seem to work well but it is all too easy to forget to change them when they need to ..., 30 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I use these mainly in drawers but also some in wardrobes, where I also use Rentokil cassettes and strips. They seem to work well but it is all too easy to forget to change them when they need to be replaced after three months.
