Wasn't on offer in my local unfortunately. Thanks all the same.
All Cast Iron Discounts, Offers and Sale - August 2018
You tell the time with it !
What do you do with do it ? Act like stonehenge people?
Did anyone buy this set? Any good? The deal seems too good to be true...
Cold as this is not an amazon deal. ;)
Expired as OOS Everywhere.
This makes a perfect dish for Tarte Tatin ....
Forensics will find you...apparently the outer coating comes off easily (cheeky)
I like that skillet. Thanks for your contribution :)
If you are buying these, then yes. But you should think about what your requirements are now and in the future. In general, Olympic stuff is more expensive. If you'll be lifting 120kg+ now or in the future, you might as well put your money into Olympic, as eventually you'll be reaching the max rated weight of standard 1" bars.
Ok thanks for letting me know so I’m better of ordering an Olympic barbell with these too ?
Standard plates fit a 1" diameter bar. Olympic plates fit a 2" diameter bar. Bumper plates fit a 2" diameter bar, and every weight plate is the same diameter (competitive powerlifting etc). The 1" bars are fine for normal use, but usually have a modest max weight they are rated to carry (the one I have is 115kg). Olympic bars will usually be rated to 300kg+ as a minimum.
What’s the diff between normal and Olympic plates ?
I love these plates ,Usually off ebay, I have picked up a couple of hundred kilos in total from various manufacturers as the good prices pop up every now and then. This price is as good as it gets, and these plates are pound for pound the cheapest option for Olympic plated you are likely to find, even the used options don't tend to come as cheap as these.
Sold out (annoyed)
Wow - you got a deal there! I'll look into 20kg 1" plates then. I'm sure I could save 10 mins per workout by not having to faff around with loading and unloading 10kg and 5kg plates. Cheers.
You can buy up to 25kg in standard single 1” plates though...You can pick up some good deals on Gumtree and FB, especially on 20kg plates. I got 150kg once (including 4 x 20kg) for £30!
Why not buy 5 then no shipping
bought 4x5kg but then I saw the 4x2.5kg and wanted to order them too...fuuuu and I already paid the shipping :(
Nice was going to get this from my American express rewards but it takes too many points. Good deal hot, thanks
Cast iron never is.
Not dishwasher safe :-(
20 cms is a bit too small for a family in my view. Great if you are the only one in house!
I read on amazon the red coating peels off
Haven't seen it in any of my locals in a long time. Got the nipper 1 and 2 in there at the time.
Or spend the extra 1p and get it new from poundshop sure it was 3d as well
Cool, I was after some new coasters (lol)
Or you could get it new, with a case, cover and a slipcase, a digital copy... and in 3D from Poundland. Terrible deal :)
No case or cover might want to amend your title sir
Great comments all. Saved me from getting on.
Not sure how anyone expected this to be good. Plastic back panel set off warning bells.
The slats will bow quickly. Bad product.
Yeah don't bother with these, had to add a middle support leg myself or fear it snapping. Also with no treatment they get manky very quickly.
deal of the day on Ebay, not Amazon?
Thanks. Brought one to try reviews on Amazon was promising. Heat for deal
From the Amazon listing for this item. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Bodum-Chambord-Cast-Glass-Diameter/dp/B017E3ZIRK/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1522333230&sr=8-1&keywords=Bodum+wok Q: Is the internal part unglazed? I do not want a finish on the inside. A: The inside is unglazed. But the manual says not use hard utensils as it is some special mix of iron. I coated the inside of mine with oil and baked it for 1 hour in the oven to season it. It got a proper coating and i cant see the original surface any more. A: No, not glazed, and I find it heats very evenly,very good really
Does this have some sort of coating on the cooking surface of the wok?
Do the Chinese supermarket woks work with induction hobs? Wondering if they would be too thin to register properly with the hob. Maybe this Bodum Wok is better suited to being a good casserole pot?
Thanks Yatty (highfive) I also got a grater £4 https://www.bodum.com/gb/en/11409-01, bread box £7.50 https://www.bodum.com/gb/en/11555-913, 5 large storage jars £4.75 https://www.bodum.com/gb/en/8700-109-2 Spent £54 so got free delivery already have a cheap wok. . . .with handle :D
Assembly is fairly qiock - not so many parts to screw together. Much of this is this pressed steel which results in pretty rapid rusting. So, good for the price / quality point.
I checked all stores in the UK, it came back as no stores have any stock, but will pop to my local tomorrow morning to see if they have any.
I didnt buy to check, but looked nice
What's the quality like of these? is there like 101 little nuts and bolts to put it together?
Not a criticism, we have all done it at some point. No harm done if they dont delete it
not in my local poundland
Probably more useful for shoving up you **** than anything else
What is this? Dumbbells for ants?!
(lol) (lol) (lol) (lol) (lol) (lol) (lol) (lol)
I paid ￡2.99 for a set from B&M last week...damn lol
Definitely stock about. 4 in Abingdon this morning, almost got one, but decided on an alternative due to reviews re:- rusting & structural issues when attaching the legs. I’m heavy handed so a recipe for disaster...
Hopefully the cover I got will do the job but I plan on storing it in the shed over winter. The box actually says it will rust from the first use and heat causes this to happen a lot quicker so I am expecting it to happen.
I got this last year. Make sure you get a waterproof cover cause it will rust
If you're passing a store it might be worth a look. Watford is showing as out of stock but there were at least 7 or 8 on the shelf last night and I doubt they have gone already.
None in N. Ireland.
Careful with that, mate. A dumbbell bar that only weighs 0.6kg sounds really flimsy. Even the bars on mass market 10kg Gold's Gym dumbbell sets weigh 1.5kg.
I'd love to see how that actually fits on. I couldn't be bothered to be honest, loading and unloading plates all the time. I'll stick with my gym membership!
I don't know about you, but I managed to load 37,5kg on a dumbbell bar, which is 38,1kg including the dumbbell bar. Hopefully they won't start falling onto my face at 40
I'm gonna assume it means 20kg each. I reckon it's physically impossible to get 4 5kg plates on each side of a crappy dumbbell bar!
Anything around a quid per kg is a good price for metal plates
Mine just arrived - very happy with the weight, finish & quality :)
All the bad reviews are from morons/ idiots who didn't understand that cooking on enamelled cast iron requires a different cooking technique to fast fry non-stick fry pans
I always check on Amazon for people comments, much as I use this site as well,not to many good reviews!
2.9 out of 5......sign me up! Incredible ebay deal! (lol) (lol) (lol) (lol) (lol) (lol) (lol) (lol) (lol) (lol) (lol) (lol) (lol) (lol) (lol) (lol) (lol) (lol) (lol) (lol) (lol) (lol) (lol) (lol) (lol) (lol) (lol) (lol) (lol) (lol) (lol) (lol) (lol) (lol) (lol)
That would be 4 reviews then. If you read the reviews, you can see there is a high degree of ignorance about what cooking with enamelled cast iron actually means, ie food sticking, not as non-stick as non-stick pans, harder to clean, should not use at high heat (over 200C) etc. You'd get exactly the same ignorant comments about Le Creuset.
I also had this bench, and its nice and light, but i manage to bends the crap out of it. I would say its great for low weight. As for those fly part, its great. But dont over load it like i did. I manage to wreck it. I say pay more and get quality that will last. Unless you like false economy.
Umm. Your 19st odd. It helps. But guys i know who lift super heavy are not casual users. Was doing one rep max at 120kg i beleive. Maybe 160. I find your stretching the truth, but i am not sure whivh direction
Just noticed this a month later- okay casual user is a bit strong, this was after a couple of months and I am 123kg myself (and some of that is not fat!)
Dumbell press; same basic movement, no spotter required, prevents uneven development, greater variations
I feel like you should get a 50% discount for that comment alone. Good play sir.
was this priced at shelf? or scan?
Still full price in Sainsburys Cobham :( . Heat added though
I love these dishes from Sainsburys. I have the smaller round version of this in the same colour and it has been getting used about twice a week for over a year now. However, the enamel inside stained quite quickly and there seems to have been a few imperfections / bubbles when it was getting done and they have now came away. The handle also chipped very easily when I knocked it against the enamel sink, I'm just glad the sink is ok. That being said I still love it and would replace it with the same dish if I ever needed to.
Got one of these last year and been very happy with it. Good size and weight to it, enamel / glaze has remained intact and not stained. Think it comes with a 10 year warranty, but unless you drop it it should be fine. Even if you drop it, it will probably still be fine, but your foot or floor might need replacing :P
Need to take 2 of the outlets back as they are all smashed up, didn't really look closely when I collected them.
Ouch! I got 6 guttering and 3 running outlets. No downpipes local to me which is a shame.
I ordered 10 and got 0 ordered several angles and off sets and also got non...16 items all 16 suddenly had no stock!
Got a call to say that they only had 6 not 7 so they refunded me 10p Collecting after work.
I had this problem saying they sent the items back to the manufacturer. But probably their staff put to one side to purchase them selves.
£38 in Merthyr - scanned
Paid £12.50 for mine last week
full price(£35) in all my local Tesco's
Good deal if you can get it
Trying to work out why this came up as an alert. Realised im still on the lookout for an IRONing board
