Fab looking kettle but not the best
Review of Smeg KLF11 by kmee92

Advantages: looks great, quick to boil, cordless
Disadvantages: steam escapes from side of the lid meaning it can get rather hot, noisey boil

I bought this kettle as a way to inject something a bit different into my kitchen as I haven't seen many people with it. Overall I feel that the kettle is great! the base cord is a light grey, making not so in your face as black ones you often see. The ke ... Read review

White Elephants Make Good Pets
Review of Bosch Tassimo T45 Joy by sirodar

Advantages: Makes great coffee, super quick
Disadvantages: Costly to run, limited recycling program

Introduction A few years ago, we decided that we would have a wood burring stove installed in our house, which I reviewed in a terrible way many years ago, and I believed that it would be a great novelty for five minutes before we couldn't be arsed ... Read review

Review of Krups Nespresso CitiZ XN 7006 by anakahn

Advantages: easy to use, fast

simple to use
Review of Bialetti Brikka by ellemceach

Advantages: simple to use
Disadvantages: none

Espresso is said to be better for your tummy than coffee. It takes less time drinking ;) and it wakes you up in a second. So I decided to give it a go and to buy a new coffee maker. AH! Have you ever found yourself in front of the huge range of coffee mak ... Read review

Good machine - could be better
Review of Nescafe Dolce Gusto Piccolo KP100640 by Muffin316

Advantages: variety of pods, easy to use, range of colours, compact
Disadvantages: not automatic, have to stay near machine when making coffee

I bought this product as a present for my husband as he is a coffee lover. We have used this item for approximately 12 month now so feel i can give an all round informed product review. The product itself is stylish and compact. It fits perfectly within ... Read review

Requires a format and expansion. by 1st2thebar
think about the things you would like to know before buying this machine that can't be found on any advertising blurb. Firstly how much does it cost and how much do the pods cost. Then maybe it's exact dimensions and how long the cable is. Perhaps how long it takes to make a cup of coffee, how big a cup can you get under the spout and how much of a faff it is to reload with water and/or pods. How easy is it to clean when a spillage does happen, and does it show fingerprints so constantly needs to be polished. This is the kind of detail the Ciao readers are looking for and which will earn you money here on the site. Also writing a review up on a Word or Open office documents will not only save it for posterity, but give you the opportunity to do a spell and grammar check. by bettyboo47

Bodum Chambord 8 Cup Coffee Maker - Truly a treat maker
Review of Bodum Chambord 8 Cup Coffee Maker by Premag

Advantages: The size of it is great
Disadvantages: Not the smallest in size

Cheap/cheerful but not for coffee enthusiasts
Review of Krups OBLO by ToneJ

Advantages: Quick drinks/ lovely chocolate
Disadvantages: Not hot enough/ coffee not strong/ you have to measure amounts yourself

This coffee machine is simple to use, although you do have to measure the amounts dispensed yourself. This means the first few you make will certainly not turn out right, although once your used to it you'll be knocking up a cup in under a minute. The st ... Read review

Not fit for purpose
Review of Swan SK18120 by geoffharry

Advantages: Light and boils quite quickly
Disadvantages: Legion

This is the worst kettle I have ever bought. 1. The pilot ligfht is hidden right inside the switch and only visible if you look square into the switch. This might fulfil the letter of the law, but in fact I consider it unfit for purpose. 2. Unless you li ... Read review

Fluent English is a prerequisite for writing here. That's given away by the .co.uk in the site url. by Secre
As you quite rightly say only the price - "cena" is an advantage here. Unfortunately most Ciao readers understand less than I do of this! Why? Because this is a .co.uk site and this review is of no use whatsoever! R. by RICHADA

Advantages: good pour, looks smart
Disadvantages: bad water level indicator and no flip up lid

Boiling Water Cheaply With A Kettle Called Sabichi...
Review of Sabichi 106445 by Nar2

Advantages: Lower 2.2kw means lesser energy usage, clear gauge, light in the hand, nice colour, longevity
Disadvantages: Bare element, plasticky = not heat insulated, not as fast as rapid boilers.

It’s not much fun when there’s a celebration in order and the kettle goes on the blink. Such was the case when I was invited to go through to a family gathering at the other end of Scotland. Upon getting ready to leave, a phone call plea to bring a few es ... Read review

Welcome to Ciao. A good start here but as Bollinger suggests, much more user experience would benefit your review. I have DG machine but it cannot use other pods as the DG pods are bigger. by Nar2
Welcome to Ciao! I would recommend reading and rating around the site particularly focussing on the coloured dot members (simply a marker of whose been on the site and active for longer) as it's a brilliant way to get to know the site, what gets the highest ratings and draw more rates back into your own reviews!
