What games are there that have a similar online gameplay to CoD? Is Destiny the same sort of thing?

About to buy a Dualit 2 slice toaster as a house warming present for someone…any other toaster recommendations before I buy?

Won't find a better toaster.

Edit. Dualit. Had mine 8 years with no issues.

Yeah, it's £40 cheaper than on John Lewis (though they do give a 5 year warranty)…can use some Amazon gift certificates I got for completing a few surveys a while back too, which is why I'm tempted.

I do like this but pricey and maybe a case of form over function going by reviews Oops

To be fair, Magimix / Dualit / KitchenAid stuff is all decent, get what you pay for.

£249 fucking hell!:

Thanks for all the suggestions, went with the Dualit in the end (have had the 3 slot one for over 7 years without a problem too)…they got me something nice for my new gaff and I know they'll google the price, plus they are brand snobs so no go on the Tefal (though might cop myself Smiling)

Their new kitchen is tiny though and they don't have much counter top space…also for some reason the 3 slot combi one is more expensive than the 4 slice on Amazon?

That's my set up… Though I fancy a decent handgrinder the krups is convenient
Have 2 krups… One for coffee, other for spices

Same set-up as above, but got this Hario hand grinder: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Hario-MSS-1B-1-Piece-Coffee-Grinder/dp/B001804CLY

Aeropress is great for the weekend, can never be arsed weekday mornings

what are the respective benefits of hand and electric powered? (aside from the obvious lazy arse appeal of the electric one)

Not used the Krups so correct me if I'm wrong but I believe the Krups is a blade grinder so you'll struggle to get a uniform coarse grind. If you want a relatively fine grind then it's not such a problem. Probably quite noisy.

Hand grinder will probably be a burr grinder so more control over the grind and more uniform. Becomes a bit of a chore if you want to grind enough for two people though. Three people you can forget about it.
