Uk: Ultrasonic Cleaners In Aldi Gbp22.99

Recommended Posts

I noticed these in our local branch the other day. No idea of the quality or durability but it may be useful for some. Here's the info.

 

A search for "ultrasonic cleaner" on FPN gave 118 results. Have a read of some of these posts for some background information on the usefulness of such a device.

 

HTH,

 

Martin

 

PS: in the interests of balance, I also shop at Waitrose.

A good notice to the UK people, Martin

 

But the link you give for reading here just leads to the search page, not to a specific topic.

Ah, I was expecting a page full of links to topics on ultrasonic cleaners. BTW, there were 118 results.

 

Thanks, I'll edit my post.

Hi

 

I have one of these that I got from Aldi when they first started selling them a few years ago, mine has had a lot of use and still going strong and cleans much better than the more expensive item I was using at the time.

 

Well worth getting if you have a shop near to you.

Oh, I hadn't seen this in time. They offered the same device here in Germany (of course...). Albeit at 19,99€ which is about 16,60£ :yikes:

Anyway, I got one, and it seems to be pretty good.

I'm afraid that it will be to big for my wife's suitcase, she's down there now. Besides, it's a shame that you cannot clean children in it. :rolleyes:

Well, not in one piece...

 

 

 

Exactly how would you disassemble them? Do you need special tools? :bawl: :wallbash:

      Dang. You are a great friend!   One comment as a relative newcomer would be within the cleaning section: issues/differences in cleaning vacuum filler, piston filler in addition to cartridge/converter. I just cleaned out my Pilot 823 and while it wasn't particularly difficult I was a little paranoid about the drops of water that I could not get out. Perhaps this is something you are already including.   Anyway, great project and very thoughtful of you. I know it's a project fo

      Ah Ruaidhri ya wee heid banger, you do indeed have an Irishman’s way wid dose words now. I’ll be from outer Aberdeenshire up in the blizzard riven braes of the Grampians.  Amateur medicine and surgery is it? Well what noble aspirations you do possess, we need to encourage such noble experimentations.  I pondered on leaving my own battered shell to science, but, until I read your pearls of wisdom and lament, I had comedown on the side of leaving my body to Findus frozen foods.  However, your rema

      Hi Smug Dill,   Nice project.  If it were me, I'd cover stuff like: - nib types available, i.e. styles, materials (SS vs gold), flex vs nails; - filling systems (I love the "thingie" comment) and how once can use them in practice (e.g. fill cartridges with a syringe); - pen body materials and their consequences (pen not balanced of too heavy and big for the hand); - and, whilst you've made it clear that you do not like vintage pens, a discussion of these beyond "I d

      Thanks for your input! Yes, not putting wood in the list of body materials warranting a mention was an oversight. I love pens with wooden bodies, but my main concern, or chagrin, is that I have not come across a wooden-bodied pen with a wooden cap that seals well. Actually, there is one, but it isn't really wood per se: the Pilot Custom Kaede's maple body is resin impregnated. All other wooden pens I have can dry out while capped and undisturbed; that includes several Platinum #3776 models.

      That looks pretty good. You might want to add wood as a material (with its weakness of staining) and mention urushi. And under ergonomic considerations, the size of section (slender pens vs chunky pens), and shape of section, and 'disturbances' such as the Lamy 2000 'ears' and Pilot Capless clip getting in the way might be worth mentioning. Also possibly a general section on things you can do yourself with a bit of care, with a bit of practice, and things that are strictly "don't try this a
