The reviewers are right. The book is fine, but what good is it when the pages fall out.

4.0 out of 5 stars Smaller than I would have liked, August 26, 2010

They really need to have thermostats on this. That said, it works, it works well, and it does what the advertisement says it will.

Perhaps a little too thick when it comes to getting the valve through the hole.

5.0 out of 5 stars I love this little knife, August 26, 2010
Okay, it is small and you won't want to use it for big things. But, given what it was designed for, it does the job well.

I love this little knife. I've had it for years.

5.0 out of 5 stars These are the real thing!, August 26, 2010
I'll make this short and simple. These boots look like engineer boots, feel like engineer boots, are well-made and made in the USA, and in every other way that matters, the reel McCoy. By the way, they are very true to fit.

No problems, just right. And, for men, their is room to move about without feeling "bunched up". That says it all!

Starbucks Sirena Espresso Machine, Stainless and Black
Starbucks Sirena Espresso Machine, Stainless and Black

5.0 out of 5 stars Unique, Unusual, and Characteristically Odd, April 17, 2008
Espresso is not coffee nor is the espresso drinker your average Morning Joe. That said, the espresso machine is best when not only does it deliver quality espresso, but it does so with a bit of style and confidence in design that harkens back to those things remembered as mid-century modern or before the loss of modern style. This machine delivers both quality and design, albeit with a certain amount of clumsiness in how you must prepare the machine to deliver steam - push knob, run out any liquid water in the wand, wait for steam to come out... and it does get annoying when the espresso drips a little too much after it has finished coming out of the spout. But, these annoyances are less flaws as they are quirks in the designers attempts to engineer efficiency and balance costs. I highly recommmend this sturdy and well built machine.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's like having the keys to the safes at Los Alamos, August 3, 2007
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Berry's previous works, The Grog Log, Intoxica, and Taboo Table provide home mixologist who long to make truly spectacular drinks, the core recipes for most of the great Polynesian drinks of the past. However, that said, Sippin' Safari is the long awaited Tour de Force that has finally provided the home drink bum what he or she has so sorely been waiting for: A really good story to go with their drink!

Along with all of his newly shared recipes like the Pearl Diver and the Tiger Shark, Berry shares with his readers the stories about the men who designed and produced these drinks to begin with. After delving deep into the story of Don the Beachcomber, his choices of ingredients seem to make more sense, i.e Falernum, Pernod, Bitters, etc. In fact, it becomes obvious that these men may be known by way they make their drinks.

Sippin' Safari goes one step even better. For the first time, the hidden secret ingredients as well as the techniques associated with making them are revealed for reader. If making truly great Polynesian drinks is your thing, then Sippin Safari is an essential part of your canon of mixing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Smooth, even cooking, April 27, 2007
This is a great set. I bought it at Macy's when they were the only ones allowed to sell the set. Be sure to use a medium heat when cooking. This set does everything that it is stated to do. I've had it for over a year and I have no complaints.
