2.0 out of 5 stars Uses large amounts of water - not suitable for a motorhome/caravan., 6 Aug. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The shower head is larger than it appears to be. It works very well but the supplier's claim that it is suitable for a caravan/motorhome is very misleading: I do not agree that it uses less water. I do believe that for the same water consumption it appears to give a stronger spray but this is not the same thong at all. The shower head is far too large for a caravan/motorhome where low water consumption is essential - it uses far too much water. What is required is a very small spray head that uses very little water, and this item is the opposite of this. This one will probably be thrown away, as I have now ordered a far smaller spray head for about £6.

5.0 out of 5 stars A simple BBQ but also one of the very best., 23 Jun. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is the best barbecue of it's kind. There are two kinds of charcoal BBQ: Those that have a domed lid and those that are open. Those with a lid can cook joints of lamb, pork, beef or chicken, but for all other cooking the Outsunny is the better type. Most open BBQ's have a fixed metal grid that places the food too close to the fire and this is the reason most BBQ meat is burned. The Outsunny allows the grid to be raised high above the fire when it's very hot, and can be lowered as the fire cools. There is a choice of 5 levels.

The Outsunny is very light to carry but assembles into a firm structure and at a comfortable height for cooking. The grid is 450mm in diameter (18") and would cook a large number of chops or steaks or a huge number of sausages. It's fine for just 2 people or for larger families. There are many charcoal BBQ's at 5 or even 10 times the price that are not as good as this. A bargain.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bar Keepers Friend is the best cleaner available today, 23 Jun. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bar Keepers Friend is the best cleaner available today. Cleaning products that actually work are hard to find. Most are creams that are almost useless and leave a thin film behind that is hard to wash away. I have been using this stain remover for about 30 years and there is nothing to touch it. It will not scratch any of the materials it's designed to clean, and in truth probably the only material that it would damage is glossy plastic and fibreglass such as a bath. The cleaner does not damage my skin and is a good cleaner to use without gloves.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good replacement cutters., 10 April 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a good replacement. The secret to long use is to clean this under a hot tap with a good strong jet of water, working on both sides of the cutter. This keeps the blades in as-new condition for an extended period.

3.0 out of 5 stars A once good product ruined by an unreliable page turning system and untrue claims of a long battery life per charge., 9 April 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
There are many good reviews of the latest kindle, so it can't be all bad. But the latest touch screen kindles are an example of the old maxim 'if it ain't broke, don't fix it':

The touch screen is brilliant for the virtual keyboard and for returning to the home page, choosing another book or adjusting the print size. But using the touch screen to turn pages is a disaster. With practice it's possible to read for 15 or 20 minutes without a problem. Then, instead of turning a page I find I have looked up a word in the dictionary. A little later the book will suddenly flip forward 2 pages, or 3 pages or 5 pages, and sometimes it's impossible to go back because the book keeps going forward again. As far as I can tell, this sudden flip forward is caused when my hand or finger gets too close to the screen - without actually touching it.

The other problem is the battery life. I repeatedly read claims that the battery lasts weeks on one charge. The best I have managed so far is 5 days. This is very upsetting, in part because it needs charging too often, and if I go away from home I cannot be sure I have enough charge to last the day. Also, it's upsetting because Amazon must know that the battery will only last weeks if the kindle is not used, and when I was young, I learned that stating something you know to be untrue is what we call a lie. So let's not pretend that Amazon have made a mistake - it is impossible to avoid the conclusion that Amazon have lied in an attempt to sell a product they know to be faulty concerning page turning.

I don't have an answer to this because Amazon have the best choice of books, so that If I return the Kindle, there is no viable alternative.
With practice, I can learn to hold the Kindle in such a way that the page turning works, but the sudden flipping forward has been impossible to solve so far. The battery life is also something I must put up with.

Amazon have ruined what used to be a brilliant e-reader. I hear that print books are making a return with sales increasing again, and I can see why: The kindle will certainly make me buy more print books.

Think twice before buying a kindle unless or until Amazon return to using only click buttons for page turning, not the touch screen.

4.0 out of 5 stars A very good torch - one of the best I have found, if it had worked properly - but let down by poor quality control., 30 Nov. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The torch arrived with a fault and Genwiss immediately agreed to replace it. Unfortunately, two more faults developed and I decided not to replace it, and Genwiss very promptly agreed to refund the price. I believe Genwiss to be a sound company. As to the torch: It is far better than almost all other low cost torches of this power because it has a simple on'off switch that is either high power, low power or off. Most of the torches with 5 modes require the switch to be pressed 9 times to return to the previous setting, which is a pain to use, and really just a toy. This torch is far better. The brightness of the torch is equal to a single LED of about 1800 lumens, perhaps a little more, but with three LED's there is a much wider spread of light as well as a good spot. The 6000 lumen claim is a little misleading, but it is a very good bright torch. I managed to make mine work for a couple of days, and found that it would run on full brightness for about 8 hours, although the light began to dim slightly after 6 hours. This is a very long time, and makes it a very practical torch. It's a great shame mine had three faults. At this price, I recommend the torch, subject to it arriving in good working order.
