For the gas fans, I should say I was brought up on gas; I didnt get to use an electric hob until I was in my mid 30's in a rural cottage with no gas. It was quite a shock how awful electric hobs are!!

I got to use induction in China; as above - a single ring portable of about 2KW; it was so much faster (and safer) than gas (especially the Chinese gas burners!!), that when I came back to the UK 6 months later, the first thing I did was rip out my electric hob and replace it with an induction hob, then try to persuade my boss at work to rip out the gas hobs and replace them with induction.
I even took in my 2KW portable, to show her how much faster it was; it was 3 times as fast at heating a 2 gallon pot of water than the huge commercial gas ring, and without all the wasted heat turning the kitchen into a sauna.

Thanks, my experience has been similarly inconsistent i have tried a few pans and like you say some don't get hot enough, we have some expensive copper bottomed ones that were superb on the old halogen hob. Will try some more like you suggested.

I have a similar Bosch oven which I got following a deal posted on here a few years ago. Very well built and highly recommended.

I use approx £12 ceramic 28" frying pans from Amazon, they work fantastically amazon.co.uk/gp/…c=1 - easy to clean too. Also have a ceramic wok too.

Not bad but i prefer to use a orbital or blelt sander


This is a palm sander for specific jobs. Try getting into some corners with an orbital or belt sander.

​Hence my comment that jazz took exception to!



Maybe I could have quoted the "Get them before Trump buys them all"

But how many times has someone heard a joke and repeated without going "Oh by the way, I must say, I didn't think of that....it was so and so" The majority of people's daily humour is not original.

Unfortunately the other deal had expired.
Also the ones I found were only 29p and not 72p So a much better price. (Though I can't comment on the quality of the brick.....the postage puts me off ha)

Anyways.......best get my coat on.....it's getting cold in here :0)
Edited by: "Jawz" 9th Nov 2016

Is that £48 delivery charge per brick??

I have just fitted this tab in our kitchen and fitters were happy. We have not seen any problems in last month and half. Great value tap

Beware.. I bought this tap thinking my hot water pressure was fine (never had any problems with it), but once installed the hot water just trickles out.. The non-uk fittings are too small for my hot water pressure.

Thank you!
It is £56 now...

I've bought the very similar looking "Grohe Bauedge Single Lever Kitchen Sink Mixer Tap" - any idea how to limit the swivel motion? It is meant to be 140° but swings all the way around - I rather limit to 140° if possible, to stop it going outside the sink.

​I can't find the purchase info as it was so long ago. It was a company called pebble grey I believe. I did a quick search on ebay for pebble grey just now and there's a few of their products on there. Couldn't see the style I bought but it was literally a quick look. Hope that helps.
