Kitchen Craft Colourworks 3 Piece Measuring Jug Set - Purple
Kitchen Craft Colourworks 3 Piece Measuring Jug Set - Purple
Price: £11.95

2.0 out of 5 stars All style, no substance, 7 May 2016
These jugs are very pretty, but not particularly great quality. I'd got these to go with some other purple colourworks things I owned, as I'm usually very impressed with the quality and durability of this range, and they look good as part of the set. However, I have ended up throwing all of mine away and replacing with pyrex jugs instead.

They don't appear to be microwave safe, even for very short periods (mine didn't seem to come with any warning about not being microwave safe), as small internal cracks appeared at the bottoms.

They also can't cope with holding hot liquids and have cracked completely when used for anything like gravy. Considering that most people expect to be able to use jugs for things like that they're not particularly practical.

Very disappointed. Will be sticking to Pyrex in future, even if they don't match the colour theme!

Lovely set of planters - I found them a perfect fit for the round pots of herbs you can get from the supermarkets. Nice quality and looks lovely on the windowsill

2.0 out of 5 stars Cheap and nasty, 22 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I like the hanging rack more than the cutlery! Rack is great for storing my smaller kitchen utensils somewhere that I can get at them easily, but the cutlery feels cheap. The metal is already wobbling in the plastic handles and I've only had it a couple of months

Not worth buying. Despite seeming to be a decent fit for the item I was filling, I got Butane all over my hands. I'm just glad I chose to try using it over the sink!

5.0 out of 5 stars Not just your average love story, 22 Aug. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Probably the most engaging and unusual love story I have ever read. It's very amusing, but also incredibly thought-provoking, as it goes into some light discussion of various philosophical ideas. However, it doesn't go into so much depth with those ideas that it detracts from the storyline, it simply adds a different dimension to it instead, one which can be appreciated however familiar you are with those ideas.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this and whole-heartedly recommend it, especially if you like something a little out of the ordinary.

1.0 out of 5 stars Cheap & nasty, 2 Sept. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Thought this was a bit of a bargain at around 66% off, but it was a complete waste of time & money (although I'll be getting a refund when I return this one)
For starters it arrives with 3 black stones missing (so it would be doubtful how long the others would stay in place for) but it was, in general, rather tacky looking.
It doesn't look like real silver - it looks more like silvery coated plastic. The joints don't move smoothly so it doesn't sit nicely & the clasp is really difficult to try and do up when it's on your wrist
The picture seemed to show a nice, pretty, delicate and fairly elegant piece of jewellery but it doesn't live up to it
Overall - the bargain price is NO reason to buy this as you'll be sorely disappointed. This is going straight back!


Dostoevsky, Kierkegaard, Nietzsche and Kafka
Dostoevsky, Kierkegaard, Nietzsche and Kafka
by William Hubben
Edition: Paperback

2.0 out of 5 stars Useless as a philosophy book, 4 Feb. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this book to help me write a presentation comparing Kafka and Kierkegaard for university but it was useless. I needed to know about their philosophies not their life histories and it is severely lacking any detailed information of any philosophy/theology for them.
Despite it being a book about the 'four prophets of our destiny' it has very little to do with this

If you just want to know a bit about the people's lives then it's an excellet and detailed book, but if you need to know anything else then don't bother. It really doesn't cover it

4.0 out of 5 stars Gorgeous!, 14 Sept. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Absolutely gorgeous sandals - the sequins look great when they catch the light and they're really comfy and easy to walk in. Wore mine in the evenings when I was on holiday and they look nice and go with most things - casual to more dressed up (I wore mine with anything from 3/4s to posher dresses)
Only down-side is how soft the soles are - they tend to pick up small stones quite easily, and they tend to get wedged in.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as the first 3, 27 Jun. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: New Beginnings (Paperback)
While on its own this book is quite good, when it's compared to the first 3 of the saga, it's nowhere near as good as they are
The first 3 are more about simple Jewish life, following a family through about 80 years, but this one is a bit far flung, almost in the way that soaps on tv get more & more ridiculous to retain interest
If you've read Almonds & Raisins, Scattered Seed and Children's Children I'm not sure I'd recommend reading Out of the Ashes and then New Beginnings as the last 2 ruin the simplicity a bit.
I have to say I was a bit disappointed with it really

This review is from: Cascading Chakra Crystal Pendant
Absolutely gorgeous pendant!
Very pretty and bright, and still quite cute because of the size
Top colourless crystal has a fairly bid gap between it and the metal wire behind it so you can easily get a chain through it
Little bit disappointed the bottom crystal was more orange than red but still a nice item.
Well worth buying
