Simpl results, everytime. Review with images

AdvantagesPrice, versatility, results

DisadvantagesMinor and occasional residue

"...old-fasioned principles are the best. Astonish Oven & Cookware cleaner (from now on referred to simply as Astonish) is one of the most effective and best value for money cleaning products I have ever used. Do you remember the stuff you used to get handed in school when you'd been caught writing your name on the desk in Biro pen? That green gritty gel with almost no smell to it at all? Well Astonish is the same sort of format. You'd probably never ..." Read review

Be astonished by Astonish

Advantagesquite cheap, non-toxic, cleans well on ovens, baths, sinks and taps

Disadvantagesmake sure you don't leave the lid off

"...to clean quickly and efficiently! Astonish is the answer. I find that the stains do (mostly!) disappear. I get a better result with this than I have had with any other cleaning products, although I do have to use a scouring pad and plenty of elbow grease - not the 'light rubbing' that the instructions on the tub recommend! Astonish is also useful to clean my bath, which is one of the big, old-fashioned sorts, though I don't know if it would work ..." Read review

Truely Astonishing

AdvantagesDoesn't smell. Small Tub lasts for ages.

DisadvantagesCan leave a whitish film on dark surfaces

"...when I have been using Astonish my jewellery has been gleaming and I haven't even cleaned them. I, like many others, hadn't realised that Astonish do a whole range of cleaning products and also do a laundry range, which I have tried and love, although I haven't been able to get hold of it for a while. The washing liquid doesn't have a strong fragrance and is gentle enough for even sensitive skins, the starch doesn't leave white marks on coloured ..." Read review

This astonishes me Review with images

AdvantagesIt is cheap and very useful indeed

DisadvantagesNone

"...had my 500g tub of Astonish Oven and Cookware Cleaner now for a few years and it has lasted me a long time because I never need to use very much of it and also when I do use it I don’t have to use a lot to get good results, I find. I bought mine in Home bargains for £1.20 and it comes in a little blue tub which is plastic with a plastic lid which clips on when I am not using it. It is very handy and useful for many things, I find. This is meant to ..." Read review

You'll Be Astonished

Advantagesinexpensive works well

Disadvantagesyou still have to do the work yourself

"...a disgusting back and brown. Astonish made the job really quick and easy though, even on the tougher stains and best of all no nasty caustic fumes and no need to wear rubber gloves, (it doesn't irritate the skin) a quick rinse over with a clean cloth and it sparkled again. Frying Pans. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ I don't know about you but I have a couple of what I call ‘Horror Pans'. The ones I use for fry-ups, a quick wash and left to drain for fear ..." Read review

astonishingly good results Review with images

Advantages lasts a long time and cleans brilliantly

Disadvantages can't really think of any

"...me I absolutely swear by Astonish oven and cookware cleaner and I particularly like it because apart from working really well it is also very cheap. I bought mine for £1 in a Pound Shop. Where I live I cannot always find it and the last time I bought it I actually went out of my way to track it down - sad soul that I am! WHAT IS IT? ***************** What is this wonder product then? It is a sort of beige paste, looks a bit like putty and comes ..." Read review

Astonishing results

Advantagescheap, easy to use, versatile cleaner

Disadvantagesnone

"...or acrylic baths (use the Astonish bathroom cleaner instead), on silver, highly polished stainless steel, brass/copper or gold/silver plated fittings. When using on an oven or cookware only use nylon scourers as these are less harsh and prevent scratch damage. {misc} This product and its ingredients have not been tested on animals. {warning} As with all cleaning products, you must keep out of the reach of children. If you should get ..." Read review

Excellent Non Toxic Surface Cleaner

AdvantagesNon Toxic, Kind to Skin, Cheap & It Works

DisadvantagesNone

"Astonish Oven & Stove Cleaner is a great product. I buy mine at one of my local small shops and pay £1.00 for a 250ml tub which lasts ages, I have seen it in some of these magazines that come through the door and it costs quite a bit more in these so it is well worth shopping around. It is in a tub and looks like solid cream cleaner, I apply it with a sponge and/or a scouring pad. As its name implies it is great for cleaning ovens and hobs and ..." Read review

Not just for the kitchen

AdvantagesCleans without scratching

DisadvantagesCan't use on the bath taps or the plug hole.

"...damages the enamel, after using astonish on the cooker and finding it brilliant, I thought the bath is not much different than the enamel on the cooker so I gave it a go, the results were amazin, at least once a week I use it on the bath now and don't have to spend hours scrubbing like I had to before. I also have a lot of non stick pans that are not always that easy to clean and astonish is great on them also. The good thing with astonish is, it ..." Read review

Advantagescleans away grease, only need to use a little, worth every penny, too many to list

Disadvantagesprice

"INTRODUCTION I have only used this once but I just have had to share this with you. It is truly amazing and the best product I have used for the oven cleaning. I have tried many products in cleaning my cooker but never found anything as good as this. Let me give you more information on this amazing product. WHAT IS ASTONISH? Astonish is a grey paste that cleans your oven and hob so it gleams with shine at you. There is nothing grubbier than ..." Read review

Its Astonishing

Advantagesefficient, reasonably priced

Disadvantagescan leave a gritty film

"...I spotted a tub of Astonish Hob and Oven Cleaner, which Id forgotton Id got, so I thought that might be a good start. I had forgotten just how good this stuff is. Its in a little tub like pot and appears as a gritty sort of white paste and it really is astonishing. They call it Hob and Cooker cleaner, but I went on to find it is good, in a way as an all purpose cleaner. My cookie jar was a bit greasy so I did the biz on it with the Astonish, ..." Read review

An Astonishing Product

AdvantagesExcellent at removing burnt food and greasy marks. Part of a range of products with an excellent reputation.

DisadvantagesAlthough the products are cheap it may sometimes be necessary to shop around to find the right product for you and buy it whilst its available.

"Our family began using astonish more by chance than anything else we wandered into one of the numerous "pound shops" in Derby and saw a jar of hob cleaner. Now I do vaguely remember seeing it a shopping channel and being impressed, but we never went out of the way to get any. The cleaner takes almost all the hard work out of cleaning tough stubborn marks off many surfaces. My mother so impressed by its effectiveness obtained safety usage sheets ..." Read review

Go out and buy it!

AdvantagesGreat cleaning power, cheap, versatile, not unpleasant to use

DisadvantagesHard to spot in the shops, need to use quite a bit

"...another cleaning product apart from Astonish that turns your baking trays back to silver again! I cannot remember how much I paid for a tub but I know I bought it because it was relatively cheap, and also according to the package it is biodegradable, and the company who produce it have banned animal tests, so this is another great point as other products that make these claims do not usually work very well but this one does. Go out and try it! ..." Read review

Astonish oven and hob cleaner

Advantagesgnetle on hands and no strong smell

Disadvantagesnone

"I was reccomended this product by a friend. Now I use it for everything. It is gentle on your hands no gloves needed . No strong smell so you don't have to evacuate the kitchen every time you clean the oven. I have used the product to clean burnt saucepans I have even used it to clean my plastic garden furniture. It is so cheap and goes a long way. The only thing you have to remember is to wash it off carefully so that it dosn't leave a powder residue. ..." Read review

Astonish-great for cleaning my ceramic hob.

AdvantagesGreat value for money

DisadvantagesDid leave a slight residue, easily comes off though.

"I really just want to agree with the previous reviewers and echo what they say really. This is a billiant product. We've just moved house and had to renovate it from top to bottom. We had to buy a second hand ceramic hob due to money being a bit tight. Unfortunately the hob had scorch marks on and around every ring and I tried various products (including hob-brite) to try to remove them, but to no avail. This is the only product which was up to the ..." Read review
