TRIXES Steel Garlic Press Ginger Crusher Kitchen Equipment Utensil

4.0 out of 5 stars Almost perfect., 7 Mar. 2016
Pros:

It looks fairly robust.
It's designed so that the pressure is applied evenly to the garlic.
It's got studs that come through the holes at the bottom helping to get every last bit of garlic out.

Cons:
The studs make it harder to wash by hand.
Even though the pressure plate slides in to its cylinder vertically, the pressure plate is still a rather lose fit, meaning, in layman's terms, that the crushed garlic escapes around the sides, which is annoying. Unfortunately this seems to be a problem with every garlic crusher I've ever come across.

5.0 out of 5 stars Get these ones., 7 Mar. 2016
Freezer boxes come in two types:

1. The sort that you can buy in the various £1 themed stores on the high street.
2. The sort that the restaurants use.

These are the sort that the restaurants use. The reason is that they don't break and the lids are designed not to make a mess when you put them on.

5.0 out of 5 stars A classic, 2 Sept. 2015
This review is from: Catan Board Game (Toy)
A classic board game. For all you British people out there who think that Monopoly is essential: try this instead. You will never want to play monopoly ever again.

3.0 out of 5 stars Alright but not the best, 2 Sept. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Alright for a cheap grinder, but there are better options at a similar price. Try having a look at the Baratza encore instead or if you can afford it, get a proper grinder.

P.S. An expensive grinder and a cheap moka pot will result in far better coffee than a cheap grinder and an expensive espresso machine. If you are on the verge of purchasing, please first consider that this grinder is considered very cheap by coffee standards. Grinders are one of those things that are ludicrously expensive. Don't ask me why, but don't go thinking otherwise. A tell tale sign of a good grinder is that it outputs consistently sized pieces of coffee bean - if you get a cheap one you will find sludge in the bottom of your cup of French press (cafetiere) coffee caused by the presence of coffee dust in your grind, and other types of coffee won't taste as good as they should do. You may well also find that you can't get it to grind the right size for the kind of coffee you are trying to make or if you are more fussy about your coffee, the particular coffee beans which you have bought, in which case you might end up taking it apart to modify it. With this particular grinder, taking it apart is possible but not easy.

If you do end up having to upgrade though, this would make a fairly good spice grinder.

Great Pianists on Piano Playing (Great Pianists: In Their Own Words)

5.0 out of 5 stars Full of golden nuggets!, 2 Sept. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book contains many brilliant nuggets of advice from the golden age of piano playing! Everything is inherently practical and written by people who really knew what they were talking about. Yes of course there is a lot of cross over between each of the pianists views but each also has something small of their own and there are some great metaphors to quote! Some of the advice may also be a little outdated now, but if you are a pianist or piano teacher, you're bound to find some inspiration from this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best expansion, 2 Sept. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Adds so much to the original game and yet is very simple and elegant. This is probably the best expansion.

4.0 out of 5 stars Unique, well priced and worth playing, 2 Sept. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Pretty good game, but it makes your head explode. I'm also not quite sure about the balance of strategies, and there are some buildings which are really not worth building. Player interaction, although fairly minimal in a sense, is often of the intensely annoying kind. Sometimes you just come out the worst off for several rounds in a row or have to scrap your entire game strategy because of the awkward placement of the other pieces - and through no deliberate moves by the other players I might add. Also, small mistakes of calculation can be very costly. Of course the gears are a gimmick, but a very cool one, and they are great for pimping with a bit of model paint! It's a unique game, that's what I like about it.

P.S. 'Normal' buyers beware - this is not monopoly. This is a complex game designed to be played by geeky adults. I don't think it is at all simple enough for children.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good but makes the game very hard, 2 Sept. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Does all the stuff that an expansion should do, but using the tribes and prophecies stuff makes the game a lot harder than it already is to play.
