5.0 out of 5 stars Works great on Rogers, Nov. 6 2013
I ordered one as an interim phone between upgrades for an employee with a Rogers 3G+ account. After setting the APN, it worked great. reported 15Mbps down and 2Mbps up so even without LTE it works nicely. Came with a nice set of aluminum earbuds and a clear case too. The phone is very light and has a bright display. I'd actually say that I like the form factor, weight and feel better than the Samsung Galaxy S3/4, Nexus 4 and Nexus S. It also has a second SIM slot for travelling which will be sweet with a telgo or t-mobile SIM for US travelling.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous piece of kit, Feb. 11 2013
I didn't do that much research for this product when I bought it but enough to know that it was really powerful and had a lot of useful accessories.

I've made a few soups that would usually require 20 minutes in an upright blender and then a sieve. With this Kenwood, it takes only about 5 minutes, no straining needed and the results… Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book, Feb. 9 2009
This book is a great reference for those stepping up their game of sous-vide cuisine. Although the technical level is probably over the heads of home chefs like me, it's still something that I pour over and gives me something to strive towards. I have a hundred dollar vacuum sealer and a PID controller for a rice cooker and still take a lot away from this book. If nothing else, I take away great ambitions on what I'd like to learn over time.

This book definitely isn't for the casual cook and almost none of the recipes are easy. If you love to experiment or you're a restaurateur looking to up the ante then this is for you.
