1.0 out of 5 stars Don't buy this!, 10 Nov. 2015
The pros:
controls easy to operate, the dials are sensitive so good control of gas flow rate, it looks good as you would expect from a Bosch product.
The cons more than outweigh the pros sadly:
1 Pan supports are so flimsy and poorly designed that all except the largest and heaviest of pans slip off the thin stand or fall down the side it - I have had so many near misses, in fact it is so dangerous I am honestly surprised that it passed the safety test.
2 It's impossible to clean the glass top to a smear free finish unless you enjoy spending mindless hours buffing it after every use
3 After on a few uses the enamel on the discs around the gas burner rings blistered - I should have got back to Bosch but tbh I am looking to get rid of this ASAP and replace it with something safer and sturdier.
Btw - if anyone can suggest a smear free method of cleaning the glass hob so it looks passable when the hood light is on please tell me - I'll buy you a drink! - so far have tried to NO avail the following: De-greaser, methylated spirit, Windowlene smear free wipes(not), ceramic hob cleaner, microfibre cloth, kitchen roll, baby wipes, glass cleaner, spirit vinegar, stainless steel wipes - you name it.....

5.0 out of 5 stars Great toaster, 2 April 2015

You get what you pay for and although it costs more than most of the others there is no denying this is a quality item. Toasts evenly, controls operate smoothly and it look classic. If you're deliberating over a cheaper toaster hesitate no longer.

Stylish quality. Bone China, and big enough to fit a decent cup of tea in. Going to get another...

1.0 out of 5 stars Looks very thin over the toe areas like they are next to go, 29 Dec. 2014
This review is from: 1000 Mile Support Sock (Misc.)
Lasted 2 washes then a hole appeared on the base of the heel. Looks very thin over the toe areas like they are next to go. Had pairs of these from other brands of these that are still going strong after several years. Would not recommend sorry.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not much difference.., 20 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It's sort of ok but it didn't give the finish I was after, my victorian quarry tiles still looked dull with little sheen even after 2 - 3 coats were applied after sealing the tiles with boiled linseed oil.
Disappointed as it's not a cheap product.
You can see that it forms a protective layer however, it just didn't transform the tiles as much as I'd expected for the price. Used Astonish wood floor polish in the end - great result - much cheaper and give a nice shine to the tiles.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great product, 20 Aug. 2014
Used this to bring dull victorian quarry tiles back life after cleaning and sealing with a thin coat of boiled linseed oil. Then 2 coats of Astonish and they look great - the colour looks slightly deeper and they have a nice sheen to them. Tried everything else - HG (expensive) wax to no avail - but this budget polish beats other productd hands down.

3.0 out of 5 stars bigger than stated, 6 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought these back in autumn and planted them out. They have just come into flower but they are all 30cm high not the 15cm stated. They're on the rockery and look too tall. Will lift them later and move them somewhere more suitable.
Reason for 3 stars is that every one of the 50 bulbs has flowered so obviously good overall quality, just disappointed they're not the correct size.

2.0 out of 5 stars Didn't fit, 8 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Item arrived soon after ordering, looks nice quality but when I attempted to install it wouldn't sit flush into the recess, it seems this would involve completely removing the exisiting backplate to fit it flush,instructions and diagrams provided were not very clear.

5.0 out of 5 stars Delighted!, 1 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was initially a little dubious about purchasing this pendant light from the internet as repro Tiffany lighting can often look a bit cheap and nasty.
I needn't have worried about this one however, it looks very authentic and has a nice antique feel about it, the copper soldering around the glass sections has a nice non-uniform, hand finished look to it
The photo does not do it justice, when switched off it has a subtle mother of pearl irridescent effect on the glass.
The whole pendant was lighter than I had anticipated which makes it easier to fit.The brass effect ceiling rose was slightly different to the one pictured but in my opinion it compliments the light better than one pictured.
It has finshed off the room beautifully.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great strings, fair price, 27 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Got these (lights 12-54) for my Taylor GS Mini. I was initially concerned about the gauge being too light/heavy as acoustic string gauge seems to vary from one manufactor to the next but they sound and feel perfect for me once strung on the guitar - loud, rich, balanced and not too bright.
I've previously always used Ernie Ball Earthwood PBs on my acoustics but needed something a little heavier as the neck on the guitar is a shorter scale and these strings had come recommended from various Gs mini owners- I'm not disappointed either, the tone seems enhanced and they deliver ease of playability too, not hard on the fingers at all, the guitar seemed to come to life.
Can't comment on the lifespan at this point sorry, will keep posted.
Would recommend you give these a go if in any doubt.
