5.0 out of 5 stars Full of useful information and spot-on reviews, January 11, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
We used this rough guide as our only travel book to make our way through Delhi and the rest of the golden triangle, and it was really indispensable for us as first-time travelers to India. We used a lot of the hotel and restaurant recommendations, and found their reviews of these places to be pretty much spot-on for both the good and bad. The train and bus schedules (and contact info) were up-to-date, and we also appreciated that the book alerts you to various scams and tout tactics used in the different cities...let us know what we were in for!

3.0 out of 5 stars These are stoneware, not enameled cast iron, January 11, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I was expecting these to be a set of the Le Creuset mini-cocottes that are sold individually by Amazon (and Williams-Sonoma, Sur la table, etc.), but that's not what they are. Those are made of the usual Le Creuset enameled cast iron...this set is made of stoneware, just pottery.

It didn't say in the product description that these were stoneware, and I assumed they were cast-iron because their other mini-cocottes are cast-iron. That said, I probably should have guessed based on the price. I thought I was getting a deal with 4 cast-iron ones for $80; not such a deal when they're light-weight pottery instead.

Anyway, I may still keep them; haven't decided. They're very cute and I'm sure they'll bake well, but I think they're probably overpriced.

3.0 out of 5 stars Really? A shipping charge for a gift card?, September 6, 2008
Since when do people have to pay shipping charges for gift cards? I can't think of any other stores that do this. I guess I'll just go to the store to buy it and save $1.95.

2.0 out of 5 stars Very attractive...yet less functional than I'd hoped, August 22, 2008
This review is from: Anolon Garlic Press (Kitchen)
I generally like all the Anolon accessories - they look nice, and I like the grey rubberized handles - they are my kitchen tools of choice. I bought the garlic press around 6 months ago, and it worked well for a while. I didn't have the same problem that the other reviewer did, but it just seems like the "press" (I don't know what else to call it) has stopped fitting into the other compartment. It's sort of strange, since it's metal and it's not as if it could expand in size (right?), but it just doesn't fit anymore. I do put it in the dishwasher - maybe that's problem. All I know is that I now have a very attractive garlic press that doesn't work.

3.0 out of 5 stars Characters are too one-dimensional, December 27, 2007
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This book was a quick and enjoyable read, but it only gets three stars from me because 1) it's a little light on actual history, and 2) I thought the characters were way too one-dimensional. Everyone in the book is either entirely pure and wonderful (Jahanara, her parents, Isa...) or evil incarnate (her brother, her husband). The author should have made the "evil" characters more nuanced. Why was the brother so evil and cruel, for instance? Lack of nuance makes the writing seem immature.
