Needed to replace the older version of this which was great. Amazon reviews are mixed (and a bit unreasonable) but seems a good deal to me and can't see it less than £55 elsewhere. This is direct form the manufacturer too. Postage is £6 if spending less than £50 but some other good offers on the site.

The previous version of this was brilliantly, especially if you used it with a timer. This is rubbish in comparison: much smaller and cannot control temperature.

It is smaller but the size is given and the temperature looks like it has 3 settings but the original had 10. On mine I only really used a couple of settings anyway but then I don't own this new one.

On the old one, the temperature setting was analogue - so it could be set precisely - so you could set it to simmer a given volume of liquid. The new settings mean that often it is too high or too low. I ended up buying an unused old version of Ebay for £35. I still don't understand why Prestige had to ruin an excellent product, when all it needed was a timer to become perfect. My guess is that the old version cost too much to manufacture.
