KVL8300S Kenwood Chef Titanium XL Review

“Having had a Kenwood mixer for over 30 years since I was first married I was so excited to upgrade to this model, Kenwood is the only brand for me. From experience I know just how reliable and sturdy their machines are, so I am expecting this one to take me well into my retirement! The unit is fairly heavy as it has a metal body, but an upside of this is that when you’re using it on full speed it won’t dance around your worktop like some of the more lightweight... Read More

48822 Morphy Richards Soup Maker

“The first thing I noticed about the Morphy Richards soup maker was the design. The stainless steel and black looks very smart and would fit in well with any kitchen design. I’d heard lots of good things about Morphy’s range of soup makers so I was really looking forward to giving one a try. As someone who doesn’t do a lot of home cooking my many previous attempts to make soup in a pan had all ended up in the bin… At first I was feeling a bit sceptical about... Read More


F4J610WS LG 10kg Direct Drive Freestanding Washing Machine Review

“I needed a new washing machine and decided to go for the LG 10kg, as we are a family of six so the large drum size best suited my needs. Another important factor for me was peace of mind, so knowing that this machine is eligible for a 5 year parts and labour warranty, plus 10 years on the motor, it was an easy decision (warranty must be activated online on the LG website). I was already aware that LG are a reliable and good value brand, and I have... Read More


Sage the Precision Brewer® Thermal Review

It was a little bit more expensive that the one we had previously, but with 6 unique brewing modes you can enjoy the perfect, balanced coffee exactly the way you like it. This brushed stainless steel machine is well built like the other Sage products we have purchased previously and matches well with other appliances in our kitchen. The only setting up we had to...

Cordless vacuum cleaners free you from the plug socket, making for easier and quicker cleaning. Originally considered an extra vacuum for quick clean-ups in between full-home cleans, the very best cordless vacs are now good enough at cleaning to replace your corded vacuum.

Gocycle GX Review

Cycling is economical, a great way to exercise, and much cheaper than owning a car.

A glorious contraption that lets you get around without having to worry about arriving at your destination a sweaty mess. With so many different styles and models to choose from, we asked a member of our sales team to trial and share his... Read More
