5.0 out of 5 stars ... It's a rolling pin., Nov. 27 2014

Perfect length. I first used a non-handled pin a couple years ago, and the increase in control is amazing. This pin works well. Being wooden, dough sick a wee bit, but since seasoning and eat will learn this over time.

I just wish i was able to find a thicker diameter one-piece pin.

Full tang, thick steel, good heft for the size, properly unmatched blade edge angles. Only used it once to chop some chicken, and it cut through the bones quite well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent , but use with care., Nov. 27 2014

Super sharp! Upon the 10th or so use of this tool, i was quickly slicing celery. I got distracted for a second, and shaved off a rather large piece of my finger. It bled for two days and left a 1 inch gouge. I'll be purchasing a filleting glove. I was careless, and paid the price.

When not trying to amputate body parts, this tool is easy to use, nice to hold, the adjustments stay at their setting, the popup julienne blades written well, and it washed eassily. Yay it's dishwasher safe. Replacement blades would have been nice, but i suspect this one blade will last. Unknown to me before receiving it, the blade is serated, and not a straight edge.

To illustrate the potential danger, view my mistake:

well.. It works. I use the largest rolls i can find at my local store, and it JUST fits. The holder bits are tapered a bit, the metal is thin enough to bend to your desired snugness, but thick enough to stay where you put it. No complaints. The paint and to be thick.

I've had 2 other Philishave shavers, and they both lasted me about 11 years. I expect teh same from this one.

Pros: good battery life, good, fast shave (for a rotary), fair ergonomics, rinse head under tap.

Cons: head is hinged instead of coming off completely (i'm paranoid of breaking the hinge), a, charge time is a bit long, Cord is not of the 'curly' variety. No wall mount.

Every type of shaving device hurts my face to use., so I shave every 2-5 days. This shaver does a fine job. Only real thing I don;t like is that it didnt; come with a wall mount! Insane. Every other shaver I've owned came with one. I'd be cheesed off about no travel pounch as well, but i fit nicely in my old one.

Really, what would adding a wall mount and carry bag cost to manufacture? a couple bucks? I'd have gladly paid another 5 dollars for these items.

Cheaply built, Kinda bulky - can block nearby ports.

But it works just fine. Windows diverts found it right away and it worked within 10 seconds of plugging it in.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's Mr. Shwo, so it rocks., Sept. 14 2011
Most folks ahve never heard of this show, but an easy favourite, along with The Kids in the Hall.

Weird, oddball humour. Hard to describe.

Quality is certainly better than what you'd get from a broadcast, but nothing spectacular. Every episode has commentary, which are pretty funny.

4.0 out of 5 stars Woudl prefer non-Mirimax version., Sept. 14 2011
A quick review on teh Blu-Ray, not the movie:

The True-HD audio is only in English. The Chinese audio track is still pretty good, but it'd be ncie if they gave it the treatment that the english dub audio got. If you're a fan of this movie, go find teh non-US release.
