Review : Epson EcoTank ET-7750 A3 Printer

As a keen photographer I always feel that it is such a shame that I have hundreds of photos just sitting on my computer, doing nothing. I love to proudly display photos around my house but very rarely get around to printing them off. When I was asked if I would like to review the Epson EcoTank ET-7750 A3 Printer I jumped at the chance. Not only does it give me the option to print large, high quality photos at home, but it is also economically and purse friendly.

Review : Epson EcoTank ET-7750 A3 Printer

The Epson EcoTank ET-7750 A3 Printer is easy to set up, our previous printer was an Epson one so I assume we had already installed the drivers on our computers, as soon as we set the wifi up on the printer our computers were ready to wirelessly print to our new device. We can now print wirelessly form anywhere in the house and also have the option of printing from our phones using an app.

Review : Epson EcoTank ET-7750 A3 Printer
The Epson EcoTank ET-7750 A3 Printer runs on ink bottles, rather than ink cartridges. The printer comes with up to three years of ink included and has been designed to print up to 3,400 photos. That is a lot of printing! The ink was easy to fill, you simply pour it in. The handy window on the printer allows you to easily monitor your ink usage.

This is a big printer so you will need to bear that in mind when purchasing, but the wifi capability means that the printer doesn’t need to take up room on or under your desk, it can easily sit in a more spacious part of the house.

Review : Epson EcoTank ET-7750 A3 Printer

The Epson EcoTank ET-7750 A3 Printer is a 3-in-1 printer with the option to print, copy and scan, plus double sided printing. It prints in a variety of sizes, the largest being A3. This is the perfect printer for home or a small office as you can use it for your day to day printing needs and to print your holiday photos without breaking the bank.

The Epson EcoTank ET-7750 A3 Printer is available at various retailers with an RRP of £699, at the time of writing the Epson EcoTank ET-7750 A3 Printer is available on offer at Amazon for a bargain £599.

Review : The Candy Grand’O Vita Washing Machine

A few months back our washing machine broke, and, as I’m sure you can imagine, panic struck. As the owners of a messy toddler we rely heavily on a good, working washing machine. My washing baskets are overflowing at the best of times. Thankfully AO came to the rescue with their fantastic next day delivery.

We decided to go for the Candy Grand’O Vita Washing Machine GVS168D3*, an 83kg washing machine with 1600rpm. There were many features drawing us to this machine, the key features being the A rated spin performance and the variety of washing cycles, including a hand wash cycle, because I don’t have space for a tumble dryer and I’m far too lazy for actual hand washing.

Review of The Candy Grand'O Vita Washing Machine GVS168D3

The spin works fantastically, with freshly washed clothes coming out of the machine nothing more than a little damp. The machine is quite quiet too, which is something that I’m sure to appreciate when the new baby comes along later this year. Don’t get me wrong, you can obviously hear it whirring around, especially when it comes to the spin cycle, but it is a lot quieter than any other machine we’ve had.

Review of The Candy Grand'O Vita Washing Machine GVS168D3

The Candy Grand’O Vita Washing Machine can be as simple or complicated to use as you choose! It has a range of everyday basic pre-programmed cycles, which you can just select and press go. You also have the option to personalise these options, allowing you to alter the temperature and spin cycle. There is also the option of connecting the washing machine to your smartphone. Using your phone you can download new cycles and monitor your washing from your smartphone, really revolutionising the way that you control your washing.

Review of The Candy Grand'O Vita Washing Machine GVS168D3

The Candy Grand’O Vita Washing Machine cleans well, Aria’s clothes go in stained with food and paint and come out spotlessly clean, this is thanks to the 3D Dynamic Wash System, ensuring you always get the best clean. This combines a special drum design and increased water pressure to thoroughly wash clothes. As well as cleaning well, it is purse friendly with an initial outlay of just £249 and the KG Detector which weighs each load and automatically adjusts the settings, so only the perfect amount of time, energy and water is used.

The Candy Grand’O Vita Washing Machine really is an all rounder, we love it for it’s simplicity, while others will love it for how technologically advanced it is.

Review : Casdon Toy Dyson Ball Vacuum Cleaner

Aria follows me in many ways, but not in the cleaning way. I hate cleaning, Aria on the other hand loves to clean, the downside being that she loves to create the mess too. Obviously as a lazy/clever mother I intend to take full advantage of this love of cleaning, which is where the Casdon Toy Dyson Ball Vacuum Cleaner comes into it’s own.

Review : Casdon Toy Dyson Ball Vacuum Cleaner

The Casdon Toy Dyson Ball Vacuum Cleaner is a direct replica of the latest Dyson ball model. It is extremely life like and includes suction and twist & turn action just like the real thing. It also has moving colourful balls in the clear cylinder making it super fun to watch.

Review : Casdon Toy Dyson Ball Vacuum Cleaner

The Casdon Toy Dyson Ball Vacuum Cleaner makes realistic sounds and has a removable dustbin at the back so that you can easily remove any debris collected.

Review : Casdon Toy Dyson Ball Vacuum Cleaner

Aria absolutely loves her Casdon Toy Dyson Ball Vacuum Cleaner, vacuuming the living room at least once a day, often more. As soon as she sees one of us reaching for our cordless Dyson she yells ‘wait’, and goes to grab her own mini Dyson to help us out.

Review : Casdon Toy Dyson Ball Vacuum Cleaner

The Casdon Toy Dyson Ball Vacuum Cleaner is super easy to push around and to navigate around corners, it is lightweight and glides along easily. My three year old loves it. The suction isn’t the best, but, much to Aria’s delight, it does pick up the odd bit here and there.

Review : Casdon Toy Dyson Ball Vacuum Cleaner

The Casdon Dyson Ball Vacuum Cleaner has an RRP of £17.99 and can be bought from most good toy shops including Amazon.

Introducing Copper Into Your Kitchen for Christmas

I’m well and truly hooked on the copper trend and gradually introducing more and more copper into my kitchen. At first I worried that it would look odd, we have a silver sink and draining board, silver cupboard and drawer handles – would the copper stick out like a sore thumb?

Introducing Copper Into Your Kitchen

I’ve started by adding a few copper accessories. We have copper pans hanging down on one wall and more recently I’ve added a copper kettle* and toaster*. All of these copper accessories have a little silver on them, meaning that they easily and effortlessly fit in with the rest of the kitchen.

Introducing Copper Into Your Kitchen

As well as being oh so pretty the kettle and toaster are also pretty nifty pieces of kit. The De’Longhi Distinta kettle has a 1.7 litre capacity allowing you to make up to seven cups at once (perfect for the busy Christmas period!), a 360 degree connection and an inbuilt limescale filter to improve the quality of your drinks.

The De’Longhi Distinta toaster is perfect for busy families, allowing you to toast up to four slices at once. The toaster has a variety of settings, even one specifically for bagels. The high lift function means that you are able to easily take the toast out, no more sticking knives into the toaster to retrieve your bread (as if I would…)!

This set would make the perfect Christmas gift for the copper mad interior lover, check out these and other Christmas gifts at ao.com.
