Pavoi® Stereo Wireless Bluetooth 3.0 Speaker

This neat little speaker is small enough to carry around easily yet sturdy enough to stay put, so ideal if you want to move from room to room, or take out with  you.
It is easy to operate and you can in/decrease the volume by holding down the +/-.
It has a really good sound quality and can reach loud volume.
I use by connecting an aux lead to my iPod but it has a bluetooth option.
Once charged it gives several hours playtime.

The only negative, which is true of many bluetooth speakers, is that it speaks to you, to tell you it’s aux/bluetooth etc. It also tells you when it’s low battery which may actually be quite useful, but “the voice” told me that repeatedly at 5am! Lesson learnt though I now actually make sure it is turned off after use.

The negative is not enough to stop me using it though as it is a minor irritation, in comparrison to the great sound and price of this speaker. Happy with purchase.

10 Pack Premium Microwave And Dishwasher Safe Plastic Quality Food Containers

I ordered these for my adult son’s packed lunches as he is forever losing them. I figured a pack of 10 would last a while.

I like that they stack inside each other so fit easily in the cupboard without taking up excess room.

They are made of fairly thick plastic, not Tupperware standard but  thicker than your Chinese takeaway cartons.

The lids fit securely.

They are big enough for 4 slices of bread sandwiches, and a pack of crisps or a couple of snack bars which is just what we needed.

At the current price they work out at around £1 ea so comparable with other shops.

I also use them when batch cooking curries, chilli, bolognase etc and find that they transfer well from the freezer to microwave and come out intact from the dishwasher.

We are happy with purchase.

SOBROVO Kitchen Tongs Stainless Steel & Silicone

These tongs are a mixture of metal and red silicone.
The silicone on the handle makes them comfortable to hold – with no slip either..
The design shape and silicone on the tong end enables you to get a good grip on the food (have tried on cakes, chicken legs and salad) I sometimes find this is difficult with metal flat tongs.
There is a good width “mouth” on the open tongs.
I am happy with purchase.

LnLyin 10 PCS Cleaning Sponge Dirt Eraser Sponge

I was dubious when opening these as they were grey in appearance unlike the branded white ones but they are just as effective at cleaning.
Once dampened they easily remove marks on paintwork but as with all other magic sponges do not rub too hard as they WILL take your paintwork off too.Wipe one stroke at a time.
They do not leave any residue and once dried any marks have vanished.
These did take about a month to arrive but for the price (£2.18 for 10) it’s worth waiting if you just want to restock your cupboards.
I would recommend.

GloryTec Garden Bags

GloryTec Garden Bags

These arrive folded flat in a plastic bag with handles so handy for storage until ready for use (it’s unlikely you’d be able to fold them flat enough to be able to go back in unless you have lots of perseverance – I didn’t).
They come in a set of 3 different sizes or packs of 2 the same size.
Personally I prefer the smaller bags as they are easier to manoeuvre, my taller family members were happy with the largest size.
They are of thick material with even secure stitching.
The handles make transportation easy.

These have proved extremely handy for the collection and transportation of leaves and would be suitable for light twigs and shrub branches.

Mimoday Bluetooth Portable Wireless Speaker

Mimoday Bluetooth Speakers Portable Wireless Shower Speaker 5Wx2 with Enhanced Bass, Ipx5 Waterproof and Shock Proof, Portable Speakerphone Built-in Microphone for indoor and outdoor Use (Black) by mimoday
It arrives in a quality presentation box so suitable for gifting if desired.

Inside is a well written user manual, the speaker, a charging lead, and aux jac lead.
The speaker is very robust and well made
The charging/aux points are hidden under a rubber panel at the side and the on/off and volume controls are descreetly positioned on top of the speaker and do not stand out from the sleek design.
Again both cables are quality (I often find I need to use my own with gadgets but not this time).
I left to charge overnight before the first use – it has a red flashing indicator light which turns blue when ready.

To turn on and off you press the circular button down for a few seconds until it beeps and the volume is operated by pressing the – or + .

I initially wanted this to play my ipod with aux lead rather than blue tooth and as you will see in the video, you simply plug in and play.

I then tested with my phone and connected to wireless internet and Bluetooth. My phone found the device within a minute or so and I was able to play the music that was stored on my phone or from You Tube via wireless internet connection (see video)

It is an excellent sound quality for a portable device,  and very good volume level which I was able to adjust via the speaker or on my phone or iPod.

Due to the size it’s easy to take with you to work or the beach or if you wanted to play music in a different part of the house that doesn’t have a sound system in.

I award  5/5 stars without a doubt and would definitely recommend. This is as good a sound as my wired iPod deck.

ScharfPro™ Vertical Self-Pressure Vegetable Spiralizer – Ergonomic and Heavy-Duty Spiral Vegetable Slicer – Turn Zucchini, Carrots, Potatoes and much more into Beautiful Long Strands by ScharfPro

I’ve used handheld spiralizers before to varying degrees of success and stopped using them after a while after the novelty has worn off because they require a bit of effort and force to use, but this is so easy and efficient it’s going to be  in regular use.

It arrives in a LARGE smart presentation box depticting item with pictoral and written instructions. So you know what you’re getting and it looks nice enough to give as a gift.

Inside is an instruction leaflet and the gadget wrapped in a plastic bag.
The spiralizer is made of good quality plastic and metal components.
There are 3 blade options that are easy to change.
To use you simply push your vegetable onto the spike, lock into place then turn the handle which pushes it down through the spiralizer/shredder when you turn the handle.
It requires little force and the children were able to use making mealtimes more fun.
It’s easy to wash up by hand or in the dishwasher.
It is a large item but looks smart enough to sit on your worktop or fits back into it’s box for storage in the cupboards.

We are happy to recommend.
We award  5/5 stars
