Shake Hands with the Devil: The Failure of Humanity in Rwanda
Shake Hands with the Devil: The Failure of Humanity in Rwanda
by Roméo Dallaire
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars An amazing read., 9 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An amazing read.......Hands tied (politically), undermanned, stymied by heartless politicians Dallaire had to stand by and watch thousands slaughtered. If you have any leanings towards learning what really happened regarding the Rawandan genocide and what makes a great military leader you really should read this book.

Well written. One of those 'can't put down reads assuming of course that the subject is to your taste. Should really be read as part of the 'series' of Iggulden books on Genghis Khan. Not really a stand alone book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Eco? possibly. Functional?...certainly., 9 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having had the previous version of this kettle knew 'mostly' what to expect so unlike other reviewers I/we were not troubled by the weight or the operating method (open lid/fill/close lid/press plunger etc). We have yet to find out if the three temperature settings will actually save any money over the previous 'just boil' model but for now it gives us the unconfirmed feeling that we are.

What we like is the ability to fill just the amount required and not having to go to the tap each time as one would with a normal 'graduated kettle' and faff about looking at the level or using a jug to fill the amount required. Just press the plunger whilst looking at the reservoir window and it is easy.

Is there a negative? Well unfortunately there is.......a leak? I question leak? because it may be the result of steam escaping to unwanted places. I have not pinpointed the exact source of the leak? but whatever/wherever it is there is a very small amount of water managing to escape onto the base unit. With this kettle I think it might be as a result of steam condensing somewhere inside the unit and escaping through the nearest hole in the base of the kettle. However as it is very minor, is not a hazard because it is not near to the electrical connections and we were aware of the 'leak' issue from previous models we can live with it. It would be good though if the designers could address this problem in future incarnations of this kettle.
