3.0 out of 5 stars The price is excellent and it does indeed work, 15 Sept. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Yes, it's ok, perhaps more than ok. The price is excellent and it does indeed work. It could be very useful in its portability alongside all the advantages of induction cooking.

We've had it about ten days and were about to send it back. Why? Because we put a coffeepot on (a rather small diameter) which claimed it was suitable for induction. Yes, it worked and heated the water very fast. But in trying to use the hob again it beeped twice, none of the lights would come on and it turned itself off. There is nothing in the booklet about this behaviour. About an hour later it started working again. Even though the machine has warning codes to explain why it refuses to work (wrong pan type, overheating and so on) it does not mention that it has a trip if it is overstressed which recovers after about an hour.

Otherwise be ready for a noisy machine. The cooling fans sound like a vacuum cleaner. The various beeps are very loud.

The controls allow variation in timing, temperature and power. They invites you to set all three (timing is in steps of 5 minutes which is inadequate: what about 3 minutes, or 8?) but what is the difference between a temperature setting and a power setting? This is unexplained in the booklet. These seem to be different ways of explaining the same thing. So far, this remains a mystery, except that to achieve lower power levels the induction is intermittently on full power just like a microwave oven (the induction is only on or off). There might be some types of cooking where this is a disadvantage.

The ceramic plate on the top is in fact two plates. I wonder whether the central join is waterproof. Probably best to keep it dry.

superb - strongly made, visible at two miles. XL size leaves lots of room to cover the clothes of an average size (waist 32") 5'10" male. Shocking yellow good for cycling visibility.

5.0 out of 5 stars pretty blue butterflies, 25 July 2017
Jewellery is a question of personal taste. I came across these completely by chance while looking for a birthday present for my daughter. I have not yet seen them, but she is delighted with them. And I asked for them to be delivered on her birhday - and thus it happened. Altogether a very satisfactory experience.

5.0 out of 5 stars These toothbrush heads seem to do the biz better than the original ones, 10 Jun. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These toothbrush heads seem to do the biz better than the original ones. One head rotates back and forth as in the simpler models and the other shakes about. They feel as if they are doing a thorough job and are cheap. Along with them comes quite a few bonus bits - protective covers for the heads, dental floss and a magnetised wristband which will cure me of all the illnesses I never realise I had.

This is a classy case. Very well made, high quality leather, perfect dimensions and well sown. Only had it a week so durability is guesswork so far. I expect it last longer than any case I've had. Really good.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant and trouble-free, 16 Feb. 2016
This is a variant on the French apple-peeling machines - wind the handle and it slices the apples. The spiralizer is much more flexible and deals with a variety of fruit and vegetables and in a variety of ways through the three types of blade supplied. This is for people who have a Magimix which is much too drastic and tends to pulverise, or for people for make meals for four people and not 16. The Spiralizer is very easy to assemble and operate. The blades are necessarily very sharp, so be careful handling them. For a machine made almost entirely of plastic it is light but very sturdy. The suction cup underneath for fixing to a surface needs a very smooth surface to attach to, but it's very useful to have both hands to wind the handle and to control the pressure on the blade. And it's easy to clean. Altogether a really useful piece of kit at a very good price, in the UK anyway.

Classic film - and this version has a whole second CD of two further films - a documentary about the director Demy and a short film with more music by Legrand. Good value.

This review is from: AdBlue 10L Solution (Automotive)
This is the real thing. Smells right, tastes right, car goes. It is strange that AdBlue is not available in most garages - at Tesco Extra in Cardiff for instance the girls on the checkout in the fuel station have never even heard of it. The internet seems the only reliable source - unless you have a 40ton juggernaut and can fill it at a special filling station (and pay 1/4 the price!).

These are thought-provoking and stimulating poems. JH has a mischievous turn of mind sometimes and makes an interesting comparison with British women poets such as Carol Ann Duffy.
