When I first started working as an educationalist, it was more than ten years ago and at the time working part time for three different companies including a short stint in an independently run pound shop. This meant I was introduced to a lot of thrifty UK companies dealing with basic hardware...

ProVitreous Enamel Association approved. Cleans

ConsDries out, needs effort, boring colour

Astonish Oven & Hob Cleaner I used to buy and swear by the Betterware multipurpose cleaning paste, it was good for a multitude of cleaning jobs and lasted for ages. Therefore when I spotted the Astonish Oven & Hob Cleaner for sale from Lakeland, that was packaged in an identical container and...

“Simpl results, everytime.”

published 11/03/2008

ProPrice, versatility, results

ConsMinor and occasional residue

How many times have you given in to clever TV marketing or unscrewed the lid on a product in a supermarket and popped it in your trolley for the plain reason that it smells nice? And then you have got it home, used it and thought ''actually, I'm REALLY dissapointed with this stuff!'' Well I think...

ConsNeed to rinse more than other products.

I bought my tub of Astonish Oven and Cookware cleaner at my local Superdrug although I'm pretty sure they don't usually sell this sort of product. I got it from one of their 'reduced products' stands and it was the ridiculously low price of 10p reduced from £1.99. I had never heard of Astonish...

“It lives up to its name!”

published 23/10/2015

ProHighly effective

ConsNone really

Astonish is a family run business based in Bradford. Apparently it’s been manufacturing cleaning products for almost 40 years. I came across via Lakeland which is a company I love and have been using the Astonish Oven and Cookware Cleaner for some years now. So what’s great about the company...

“Not the best I've ever tried”

published 18/10/2016

ProMakes everything clean and shiny

ConsHarsh on skin. Difficult to rinse

My husband bought this in B and Q where he paid £1.99 for a 500g tub. I usually use spray oven cleaner and a spray kitchen cleaner. I had never tried a paste so was curious as to how well this would work. The tub is quite small but deveivingly heavy. The tub tells me this is a paste which can be...

“This astonishes me”

published 26/04/2012

ProIt is cheap and very useful indeed

ConsNone

I have 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...

Consmake sure you don't leave the lid off

My Mum swears by Astonish, ever since she first bought it after seeing it advertised in one of the Lakeland Plastics catalogue, and thus it was on her recommendation that I bought some to use myself (she's usually right about most things!). It can cost as much as £2.50 but if you go into a town...

ProNon Toxic, Kind to Skin, Cheap & It Works

ConsNone

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...

“Truely Astonishing”

published 07/08/2001

ProDoesn't smell. Small Tub lasts for ages.

ConsCan leave a whitish film on dark surfaces

I first used Astonish, when I was a child at home. I wanted to clean my Bike Wheels up and couldn't get them clean. My Dad told me to use some "Elbow Grease" and when I asked where it was, he laughed and handed my the tub of Astonish. I couldn't understand him laughing, well I was only about 8...

“You'll Be Astonished”

published 24/09/2001

Proinexpensive works well

Consyou still have to do the work yourself

After reading a couple of ops on this product I decided to try it for myself. So a couple of weeks ago I bought a tub after spotting it in my local shop. My initial reaction was that it was expensive at £1.99 for 500g/17oz/300ml tub but this was a village shop so it would probably be cheaper...

Seeing as though cleaning the oven and all it’s accessories is a real chore (for me anyhow) I like to have products to hand that make the job as quick, easy and effortless as possible, preferably with the added bonus of not being too powerful in the pong department too, as some oven cleaners are...

Cons can't really think of any

I'm not really into housework and cleaning so I'm a little 'astonished' to find myself writing a review on a cleaning product! However whenever the cleaning bug bites me I absolutely swear by Astonish oven and cookware cleaner and I particularly like it because apart from working really well it...

“Not just for the kitchen”

ProCleans without scratching

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

I have an old ceramic bath and when I first moved into this house I wanted to get rid of it because you can't use most bathroom cleaners as it 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...
