This review is from: Design-Go Cabin Bottles -
Good idea, especially with the squirty attachment, but the set I had leaked and are being returned.

1.0 out of 5 stars Worked for 5 minutes, 12 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Huge mistake taking a chance on this; sometimes these gambles pay off, sometimes they don't - this is very much in the "don't". Worked first time, then just flat refused to work thereafter. Genuinely wish I had picked a more expensive branded one, which I shall order shortly - this one is in the bin - not worth the hassle to try and return.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great for the uninformed, 18 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Bad Science (Paperback)
I'm a scientist by background, so to be fair, I didn't learn a huge amount from this book, however, I would recommend it for anyone with an interest in good science and as an eye opener to many "claims" made in the market place. It is accessible and well written.

I'll be honest, when I first opened the box, I thought the mechanism (the switch rocker) was flimsy, but once it is wall mounted, it's fine and stable and solid.

Good quality finish, supplied with a comprehensive wiring guide for all sockets (not just the one it comes with), several of which are now kept in my tool box for future reference.

Be wary of the screws though - some of the ones I had didn't "catch" properly into the backing plate and I ended up recycling some of the ones from old sockets I was replacing. No matter for silver/chrome, but would be annoying with brass.

They don't supply gaskets (except with bronze), so don't use these for recently plastered/damp walls, otherwise the metal will tarnish.

Note that this is a master socket, so be careful with how you wire 2 and 5 if using it as an extension

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, 18 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very versatile (though haven't tried chocolate in it yet, apparently you have to keep the temperature very low) and a good solid bit of kit.

The seperate hotplate opens up many other possibilities (omelette station for example) and the cast iron pan means the fondue can be prepared on the hob first. Certainly far better than the paraffin powered ones. Only thing is to watch the heat - the hotplate is, well, enthusiastic - better to start low and turn up than have a boiling fondue as I did first time!

2.0 out of 5 stars Melted, 18 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Not sure whether I should be thankful that it protected my hand from being burnt, or if it just melted in proximity to the heat when I was holding a roasting tin over a flame to deglaze it. Since replaced with another manufactuer's product and haven't melted that one.

Can't say either way, but I am skeptical of the quality.
