Paul Hollywood by KitchenCraft 6-Hole Non-Stick Deep Pie / Tart Baking Tin with Loose Bases, 27 x 18.5 cm (10.5" x 7")
Paul Hollywood by KitchenCraft 6-Hole Non-Stick Deep Pie / Tart Baking Tin with Loose Bases, 27 x 18.5 cm (10.5" x 7")
Price: £13.98

5.0 out of 5 stars A professional touch, 24 Sept. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a really good idea. Have you ever baked pies, tarts or muffins and had problems removing them smoothly and intact from the baking tin? With this you don't need to worry about that because each compartment has a hole at the bottom and a separate disc, made of the same metal as the tin, which you simply push up to remove the finished bake from its compartment. It works a treat and it's really easy to clean afterwards. It feels like a real professional's baking tin, and would even make a great present for those who love their baking.

5.0 out of 5 stars List writing made colourful, 24 Sept. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I've got to admit it, I do like Post-It notes and I use them a lot. Now there are ones with ruled lines on, I'm starting to use those instead of a notebook when it comes to jotting down lists. The bright colours and ability to stick them somewhere so I won't forget them are both major selling points, and I'm already sold on them. This pack of three different colours uses the super sticky glue, meaning it sticks better to more surfaces, and has one each of orange, blue and pink coloured pads. For the blue one, you need to use black ink because it could be hard to read otherwise, but it's easy to read anything you write on the others. The size is a good 101mm by 152mm and there are 90 sheets to each pad.


Body Language: Learn how to read others and communicate with confidence
Body Language: Learn how to read others and communicate with confidence
by Elizabeth Kuhnke
Edition: Paperback
Price: £10.68

5.0 out of 5 stars Book layout and writing style can say a lot too, 24 Sept. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
It's not just body language which can create a good impression, the style and layout of a book can say a lot as well. Even before I get onto the content, which I enjoyed reading, I have to say how well set out and easy to read the book itself is. The size is perfect to fit in your hand, the paper is good quality, the font is readable and the use of a particularly relaxing shade of green for the heading text and page surrounds is a great choice. There are some good illustrations too, of characters expressing a range of different facial and body postures, which are generally quite amusing.

The subject matter itself is interesting, and although some of it I already knew, or seemed obvious anyway, I also realised a lot of things I wasn't aware of before, sometimes about other people and sometimes about myself. I liked the writing style too. There was no point where I got bored and wanted to stop reading, and the chapters were short and to the point, making it easy to pick up at several points throughout just a few days and read in short bursts.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not your standard Post-It notes, 20 Sept. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
You get six big, lined Post-It notes in this pack. Two pink, two blue, two yellow. They are, compared to the standard size we're all used to, a generous 101 square millimetres. Super sticky too, which means they stick to a greater variety of surfaces and for longer. For using as a writing pad, the yellow and pink are best. If you're using the blue pad, you really need to use black ink. They're much easier than the standard size for simply holding in the palm of your hand to write upon. Very useful, and another reason I love using these notes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hooray for pie dishes!, 20 Sept. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
If you didn't know these were Paul Hollywood dishes, you would soon find out because his name is printed on the underneath of them. These pie dishes are really good – just the right size, just the right shape, tough as anything you can imagine and non-stick. So easy to clean as well. They can be used in an oven but must not be used in a microwave. They can apparently be put in the freezer as well, though I haven't had cause to test that yet. I had to read the packaging twice because it says they are guaranteed for 20 years (5 for the non stick coating). That's a long guarantee.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great design with many great features, 17 Sept. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
What a unique lever arch file! It's not just different in one way, it's different in several ways. The most eye grabbing difference is the curved spine, which is a bit jarring on the eye at first but it makes the file stand out, and even more so with the textured pattern on it reflecting the light. The front and back of it have a wave and circle pattern and the micro-lined texture again catches the light and gives the file an impression of solidity that is borne out by the thickness of the plastic. It has another feature which is very welcome; a raised circle on the front edge and a strip of elastic thread on the other, allowing you to fasten it closed and guard against losing papers (as we all know how easy it is for hole punched papers to become frayed on the edges and become loose with repeated page turning). The special features do not stop with the outside, and inside the front cover you can find a pen holder made from elastic ribbon, a clear plastic pocket for loose papers and two smaller clear plastic pockets on the front of that. The lever mechanism is properly aligned, as you'd expect it to be. All in all, it's a very neat and special folder.

5.0 out of 5 stars Unique look hole punch and mini-stapler set, 17 Sept. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
The colour and style of this hole punch and mini stapler set make it a visually and functionally perfect companion to the Leitz Wow A4 75 mm Active Lever Arch File - Purple lever arch file also made by Leitz.

The hole punch has a style quite distinctive from the others I have got. Its mix of glossy purple and white is eye catching, and functionally all the parts work well. The measuring guide is one of the simplest and quickest to use I have come across. The punch has a nice solid motion and it is easy to empty the circular clippings out.

The mini-stapler is a mixed bag. It looks good, and it staples well, but I did find it fiddly to load and every time I did so I lost a staple which went flying off, landing in the carpet. I don't see the point of such small staplers over the standard size unless it is to carry them around with you in your pocket, but I wouldn't advise that with this as there is nothing to lock it in place. It also has a small protuberance on the back for digging out staples, and it works well, so that's a point back in its favour.

Although I'm rounding up for the both of them, I give five stars for the hole punch and four stars for the stapler.

5.0 out of 5 stars No more leaving home without the shopping list. You can't miss it., 17 Sept. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I hadn't seen a Post-It Note with ruled lines on it before this, and I think if the pad had been any smaller I would not have seen the point of it. But this pad is 101mm by 154mm (well, mine was – it actually says 101mm by 152mm on the packet, not to be picky), and it makes a good pad for writing shopping lists on. It goes without saying that it sticks really well; better than normal actually because it is the "super sticky" variety, made with renewable resource adhesive. The colour is a bit bright for shopping lists but use a good pen and it's still very readable. You get 70 sheets in one pad in this packet.

Rapesco Foldback Clips 32 mm Large - Black [Pack of 10]
Price: £2.56

5.0 out of 5 stars Foldback clips, 17 Sept. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I use foldback clips a lot at work and occasionally at home as well. This is a pack of ten 32mm clips. That's a width measurement. They can take up to a centimetre of paper, card, etc at a push. The surface of these is quite smooth and they look fresh off the production line, with no tarnishing. I'm not sure if the ones at work had been hanging around a bit, but they didn't look as new and clean as these do.

5.0 out of 5 stars Huge heavy duty clips, 17 Sept. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Described as "letter clips" on the box they came in, these clips are definitely on the heavy duty side and are more suitable for holding up banners, fabric or plastic signs. They are 70mm wide and can fit about 14mm between the clips. They have a hole in each handle, which allows you to easily hang them up on a nail or hook.
