One is Fun (Coronet Books)
One is Fun (Coronet Books)

Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent purchase for the single person, 22 April 2017

Easy to follow recipes tailored for one. It was originally published quite a while ago, so does use imperial measurements, but fortunately has metric equivalents.

4.0 out of 5 stars Mechanically very good, but let down by badly translated instructions. Also please read my safety comment!, 22 April 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This loses a star because of the poor instructions, of which more later. However, I have one important caveat: having a pet in the house, I am fortunate in that I have enough room not to have to fold it away after use, because this item is very heavy and it didn't take much force to overbalance it when folded vertically. It would be even more of a concern with a young child, who might be tempted to hang on to the handles with possibly disastrous consequences.

Anyway, back to the instructions which appear to have been translated from the Chinese by a machine bot. They are just about understandable in places, but do not explain clearly how to set up the available programs, of which there are three, in addition to basic operation. When first switched on with the safety magnet in place, four dashes appear on the screen. This allows basic operation, where you press the start button on the left, then set up a constant speed using the + and - buttons. If before pressing start, you press the Mode button, the four dashes start flashing. Then by pressing the + button, it cycles through P1, P2 and P3 before returning to basic operation. If you select a program, you don't have manual control over the speed, which starts slowly then speeds up in stages after a time delay. I didn't investigate the programs fully, except to see that P1 starts at 1.0 km/h and P2 starts at 2.0 km/h. You are welcome to experiment and find out for yourselves what happens - I stopped it when the speed got too fast for me! I hope this helps users get round the lack of clear instructions.

5.0 out of 5 stars Like getting a new shaver, 20 Feb. 2017

I have replaced the cutters and foil several times on my trusty Braun shaver and it never ceases to surprise me how much closer a shave I get each time. I don't think you notice it slowly getting less efficient as time goes on. A great product.

5.0 out of 5 stars I would recommend this trap to anyone, 3 Feb. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having tried unsuccessfully for several days to trap a mouse I had spotted running around downstairs, using a similar trap from a different manufacturer (the mouse took the bait without triggering it!), I bought a couple of these.

I spotted the little fellow in the kitchen this morning and put one down one next to the unit he had scurried behind - it was ready to use since I had taken it up from the night before - then went off to eat my breakfast. Five minutes or so later, I came back into the kitchen, and there he was inside! He is now somewhere enjoying his freedom in the back garden :-)

4.0 out of 5 stars Does the job, 26 Nov. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have bought this product before and it does its job well. The rubber holders don't last for ever, and eventually crack so they don't hold the towels firmly, which is why this is a repeat order. The fact that I have re-ordered should indicate that they do last long enough to warrant replacing with the same item, and I got my money's worth. The nice thing is, of course, that the holes are already drilled to take the mounting screws, so it's a two minute job to remove the old one and replace it with the new one.

(The illustration shows the screw holes between the rubber holders - in fact they are at each end.)

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent product that does all that I want, 26 Nov. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This item is all that I expected of it. At last I can bring my vinyl and cassette collections out of hibernation and play them again. I shan't really be using the FM/AM radio function, but it I were, it would lose a star because any presets are lost if the mains power is removed. Most modern designs use non-volatile memory to store things like presets.

However, I bought this mainly for the facility to convert vinyl and cassettes to MP3 for use on my PC and phone, and this works really well. If you want to start a separate file for each track, you have to sit there in real time and press the Track Separation button at the end of each track. I found this a bit of a chore, so I let it run through recording a single MP3 file and used Audacity (an excellent free audio editing application) to separate the tracks and output separate MP3 files. The advantage of this is that you have a visual display and can see exactly where the boundaries between tracks are. Obviously you don't have this luxury if recording to CD (which I haven't tried yet) and would need to use the TS button for each track.

I think there must be a limit to the size of a single MP3 file, as in one case it only saved the first 4 tracks out of 6 on one side of a cassette tape, but this was not too much of a problem as I recorded the last two tracks in a separate session.

(Audacity will appear quite complex to a first time user, but if you just search for "split" in the help, there is a clear explanation of the few steps you have to take to split the tracks into separate files.)

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent buy, 30 Sept. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this to replace my Andrew James 6-meal automatic feeder. While it worked perfectly well, it was a hassle weighing out a fresh batch of feed every 3 days, usually late at night when I realised it had finished its cycle. The Cat Mate feeder is perfect for my needs - just periodically check that there is enough dry food in the hopper. I also have peace of mind that it is always going to work if I am away overnight. I have it set to dispense 2 units early in the morning, 1 at midday and 2 late afternoon, which is just the right quantity for my fairly small cat.
