4.0 out of 5 stars A bit small but good for what I use it for, June 23 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I bought this because I love working with cast iron pots especially when making things like lemon meringue pie or other pudding pies. Doing something that requires working with sugar can be a bit tricky but using this kind of pot (for me, at least) helps avoid the burning of the pudding in comparison to using a stainless steel pot which I think you have more of a tendency to do that.

I had a Le Creuset cast iron pot that I had that was a bit bigger than this pot and used for that for the longest time but can't seem to find it now after our move and Le Creuset is getting to be too expensive to buy another (and I think they are starting at $300)! I have to say though, that this pot is just as good as the Le Creuset that I had, but a bit small. As for making things like the lemon or other pudding pies it does work, it just gets a bit full. Using this pot you'll just have to really pay attention that it won't overflow when it hits the boiling point for the lemon pie filling as it wouldn't take much for it to boil over (and you know how sugar on hot burners don't work!)

As for using it for the things I do, it will work just fine. :)

I bought this to start a new naturopathic therapy for my epilepsy. I have tried it now for almost 2 months and it has really helped me have much more stamina than I had before I started doing it at the beginning of April. For what I use this for (2 tbsp/day, once a day) - the 2 containers that I bought originally at the beginning of April, has lasted me basically 2 months. I am pleased with the results! :)

1.0 out of 5 stars Not Impressed!, March 29 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
For the price I paid for it and the amount of crosswords this book had, I am not pleased! Also, some of the questions or clues leave a lot to be desired. You'd think that for this price there would be more in them.
I won't buy this one again any time soon - SORRY! :(

5.0 out of 5 stars So far it's great! :), March 28 2015
Hey! At least with this cross-word book to enjoy this you don't have to cheat to get the crosswords done. They are easy enough to at least help you fill in the blanks in most of them so when you go back to the ones you did not get you can finish it off or figure it out WITHOUT having to cheat and look in the back of the book at the answers! I like it! :)

2.0 out of 5 stars Not as good with the answers as the other books I have, March 28 2015

I tried some of the crosswords in this crossword book too. I find that I don't like it as much because it has such stupid answers to some of the clues. Sorry, won't buy this one again! Too American for my taste! :(

This review is from: My Fair Lady (DVD)
I am writing this only on the behalf of my husband who is a 'happy man' because I bought this for him AND bought the music in CD as well. Even though I am NOT particularly fond of this movie, I am happy enough that my husband is happy having it AND the DVD of the music this movie plays. For me -- as long as he loves it - I'm happy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy but not too easy -- and easy on the eyes too if you have bad eyesight! :), March 27 2015

This review is from: Crossword Puzzles (Spiral-bound)
Bought these hoping that they would be 'easy' but not 'too easy'. I have already done 3 in this book and although it has a lot to do with American stuff, I enjoyed spending my free time doing them so far. I've always enjoyed doing crossword books and found that word find books are too easy and too boring for me to do. As for the others I bought I also will try them out and then decide whether to buy another of the same titles that are out. This book has a lot of variety and easy on the eyes for sure, if you have bad sight. I don't, but still have really enjoyed doing them.
