1.0 out of 5 stars Too much sugar, 23 Jun. 2016

You can safely halve if not reduce by two thirds the sugar in these recipes.

5.0 out of 5 stars FAULTLESS, 13 Nov. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Brilliant, very accurate, syncs seamlessly with Sony smartphone and fitbit app is so simple and comprehensive. I cannot suggest one improvement.
This is the cheapest in the range and unless you specifically want the other features of the more expensive models, this is the one to go for

1.0 out of 5 stars Dry Bread, 16 Sept. 2015
This review is from: Paul Hollywood's Bread (Hardcover)
Hollywood has a high profile, but bakers such as Bertinet and Morton are better and more informative

3.0 out of 5 stars Not enough background information, 16 Sept. 2015
This review is from: Leiths Baking Bible (Paperback)
There are many good recipes in this book and some bad ones. I would prefer more explanation either as to why recipes do or should work, the science behind them or some background on where the recipes originate from and why. If you like to just be told the recipe and follow exactly without question this is the baking book for you. For the more enquiring baker look elsewhere


Leifheit Proline 03154 Plum Stoner
Leifheit Proline 03154 Plum Stoner
Price: £16.60

5.0 out of 5 stars Works well needs a strong hand though, 9 Sept. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Considering what a pain it is to stone plums with a knife this is great. No more stained, cut hands. Needs a bit of a push to get through the plum, I find just nicking the plum at the top with a sharp knife really helps. Leaves no more plum on the stone than you would using a knife. Possibly could spend more time scraping fruit off the stone but is it worth it - no definitely prefer this. It pushes stone through and slices down one side - so handy if you want to stuff plums! Feels strong and robust, good design feature is that it locks together to preserve sharpness of the cutter.

5.0 out of 5 stars The perfect peeler, 9 Sept. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Fantastic little machine if you have loads of apples to prep. Far better than the peel/core/slice machines, this one just peels so less to go wrong and less fiddly, unlike others it peels thinly so more vitamin C retained
Works with any size apple, the blade adjusting according to the size, simple to slot apple quickly on the spikes, easy to turn, peels very easily, looks quite good, feels robust, feet suck immediately onto granite surface. So pleased I chose this one.
I bought a push through corer/segmenter to go with it as I want segments of apple to use in preserves, apple pie etc.

1.0 out of 5 stars I assume this book is just for Americans since it ..., 7 Sept. 2015
I assume this book is just for Americans since it uses imperial measurements only assumes that will do, it won't. Interesting for background but just plain wrong when it come to results, you cannot rely on ratios alone.

1.0 out of 5 stars No good for home composting, 7 Sept. 2015
Fine if you are putting your kitchen waste in the council green bin, (they compost at high temperatures) but never seem to decompose in our compost heap, ended up having to sieve the whole compost heap to get rid of the the bags

4.0 out of 5 stars Good but need longer handles., 7 Sept. 2015
Used for 18months now, work well, both brushes do same job, rubber triangular bit on the end not that useful. Like a very sturdy, dense toothbrush that works on pans etc. Wish they were longer so that they didn't disappear inside the kitchen sink caddy and would reach to difficult places e.g. back of oven. However there isn't another product thats comparable.
