1.0 out of 5 stars Cheap rubbish., 19 Sept. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Complete waste of money. Expected that this item should be able to go in the dishwasher, but it has come out completely black and crumbling. This indicates that it is not stainless, but made from a cheaply coated material which could potentially come away into the bread dough. Any item which is used for food preparation must be able to withstand hot water, so therefore it is not fit for purpose. Cheap rubbish - would not recommend.

Hmm... you get what you pay for.... my husband spent 20 mins swearing at it, as to open it up so it can be used, the locking screws need removing... upon which all the bearings escape. It's a bit flimsy.

1.0 out of 5 stars Complete waste of time and money - useless product., 5 July 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Complete waste of time. Does not come with a number, so if you are setting up from scratch, it cannot be registered using the serial number alone - according to O2 it is just a blank SIM. Don't waste your money - O2 will send out a free SIM within 1 - 3 days as a priority order, and will register and provide the necessary top ups.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great product, 2 Jan. 2016
Bought directly from the Cheeky Mama website, and purchased 12 of the heavy flow variety as I suffer from endometriosis. I have been really impressed with them, they are super absorbant and I have had only one night time leakage due to very heavy flooding. They are extremely soft and comfortable to wear, with adjustable poppers on the wings to keep them in place. A helpful tip is to ensure that the nap of the velvet reverse runs from front to back, and wear with cotton pants, and they stay absolutely in place. They wash and dry very well - I machine washed on 60* with a non-bio soap and have had no trouble with staining. The little bag they come with is great for putting the used towels in until they can be put into the machine. All in all - 10/10 - I wont be going back to expensive disposables.

5.0 out of 5 stars EXCELLENT QUALITY - VERY SMART BLANKET, 29 Mar. 2015
Have now ordered four of these blankets, two for my cats, and 1 each for my mother's cat and dog. Came extremely quickly - within 2 days, and the quality is superb - thick, fluffy navy blue fleece and the contrasting red and silver embroidery looks super smart. The embroidery is of a very high standard, and the whole product is delightful. Wash and dry extremely well - back to original state when out of tumble drier. Extremely easy to order, with the pet's name being entered into the Gift message box in the ordering process. Would recommend 10/10 on speed of service and very high quality product - thanks very much.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not bad., 22 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having read all the other reviews I bought this confidently, and so far it has lived up to expectations - the unit I think is reasonably noisy, although as it has to be kept outside the bathroom for safety, closing the door sorts out the noise issues. BUT the remote control will only work with line of sight - so, if you need to adjust the settings, then the door has to be opened again. Another slight issue for us is that this was bought to be used in a doubled ended bath and the air hose fastens into one end of the mat - so the person sitting at that end ends up with the hose. However, drawing it forwards a bit solves that problem. I agree with other reviewers in that this version is very powerful - even the low setting produces quite a vigorous bubbling - so people with delicate skin (e.g. elderly) might find it a little too much. But the therapeutic benefits of this are clear and it is easily much better than my ancient Babyliss spa. I confirm also that it does still come with a two-pin European plug, with a bizarre adaptor which is neither use nor ornament, but I used a toothbrush/shaver charger plug and it was fine - and yes, fully agree that it ought to go in a surge protected socket which will trip out in an emergency.

In order to improve upon it the makers could consider:

1. Please consider fitting a British plug for safety
2. Having options as to where to fit the air hose - a removable cap at either the end, or in the centre edge, would mean that the unit can be used with either one or two people to suit the size of bath
3. Try and further reduce the noise on the main unit
4. Improve the remote control so that it doesn't have to be line of sight - would be very useful if the main unit is outside the bathroom (which is where it ought to be for safety).
5. Possibly having an even lower setting than "low" to suit the elderly and infirm, for whom I think this would be of benefit

But, overall, a quality product. I cannot comment upon its longevity as have only just bought it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exactly as required, 9 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought to deter neighbourhood cats from wandering in the house in the warmer months when we like to leave the door open. Very easy to fit, adjusts to any size door frame, and the mesh middle section makes it not too obtrusive. Can be moved aside instantly to allow human access. It is reasonably tall, and high enough to put the cats off. Folds up easily, quickly into its own nylon bag. On first use today (hoorah the Spring is back!!) worked like a charm - the chief protagonist, a rather cheeky fellow named Norman, decided it was just too much hassle to jump over the top and just wandered off. So - given that it does exactly what we needed it to, is a robust piece of kit which is easy to fit, stores away neatly and easily, AND was only £20 - I give it 5*.

We christened this the Coloseum - it certainly has status! Our two cats really love it - they can stretch themselves right the way up it and scratch away, and importantly it won't fall over like many of the other standard size posts we have had. Great value for money, easy to assemble - just two bolts through the base - and any cat will really love it. 10/10.

The insight in this book is remarkable for one so young. I am a huge fan of Malala - what an astonishing journey she has had. I think we can expect a lot more from her in years to come.
