Re: PATISSERIE HOLDINGS (CAKE)

As I understand it, your vote would only have counted if you had switched a share to certificated form.

Re: Phasing out of fast freeze switches on freezers

Having decided not to worry about the lack of fast freeze switch and just to limit the amount of food I freeze at one time and be thankful for the auto-defrost, I was going to order the Lec but thought to ask what would happen if the kitchen temperature fell below the 16 degree limit and the chap at...

Re: The Bloodbath HYP

"None of the above" springs to mind, although having just had a tiny HP cartridge delivered in a cardboard box at least one foot square, with the space filled with packaging, maybe DS Smith might be the one to go for and to hell with the environment.

Re: PATISSERIE HOLDINGS (CAKE)

If it was a complete basket case, Johnson and cronies wouldn't be taking up the placement. They could have provided sufficient cash to deal with the immediate problem and see them through a rights issue available to all which would have given all shareholders the opportunity to avoid dilution. It lo...

Re: PATISSERIE HOLDINGS (CAKE)

When I said I wouldn't be surprised if the s.p. went up when trading was resumed, I meant from the 50p that the placing was priced at, of course, not the suspension price. The Times says that "the placing, in which Mr Johnson is expected to buy about £5m of shares, will be priced at 50p compare...

Re: PATISSERIE HOLDINGS (CAKE)

I don't own shares in CAKE but what I hope comes out of it are the requirements for stronger financial controls and - more importantly- much stiffer penalties if management are found to be cooking the books. I do not own shares here either but what do you mean by 'stronger financial controls'? Unti...

Re: PATISSERIE HOLDINGS (CAKE)

If Luke Johnson doesn't know what is going on in his own company, what hope have we got? Rather than waste our time trying to make sense of company accounts or even looking at Lemonfool or other boards, we might as well play the monkey with the pin. The government is tightening up on gambling on bet...

Re: Phasing out of fast freeze switches on freezers

Oh, I see. Well, when I pressed the fast freeze switch on mine, it turned the motor on, but now even without the fast freeze switch on, the motor never turns off. I think I am going to have to take a chance on the Lec, albeit without FF, limit the amount I freeze at any one time and hope my kitchen ...

Re: Phasing out of fast freeze switches on freezers

Stompa: "Freezing capacity fresh food (kg /24 hr): 3" That's the same as the Lec FF I am considering. I'm afraid I couldn't follow your comment about the fast freeze switch either. What on earth is a door shut button? Something I don't seem to have on my existing/failing FF. FWIW I have ne...

Thanks, Kempie. I was rather expecting that. I wouldn't be entirely surprised if the column never resumed.

Re: PATISSERIE HOLDINGS (CAKE)

The emergency raise is better than collapse, I'll give you that. I appreciate the legal constraints a board will have been under in the circumstances. Nonetheless to not give private investors equal access to the raise on an equivalent basis to the institutionals is annoying to say the least. I tak...

Re: MrC's Smallcap Sweeps for Oct 2018

I hold Pat Val (Cake)in the Ff folio.it will be interesting to see what comes out. Ff (not Family firms maybe Foolish folio)? A separate Cake Topic on here might take some beating, as I don't think MrC engages in much conversation, as such, on his helpful Smallcap Sweeps. Not that I've got anything...

Re: Phasing out of fast freeze switches on freezers

I suppose you haven't left the fast freeze switch on by any chance? That would be difficult, there isn't one! Interesting. I had clicked on your link and gone onto the product specification for that FF and it said there was a fast freeze switch which enabled faster freezing and hence better flavour...

It's one of these:

I should contact John Lewis then. I suppose you haven't left the fast freeze switch on by any chance?

Re: Phasing out of fast freeze switches on freezers

What make and model is it, Stompa? I'm still undecided as to whether I will have problems with the Lec. Still no reply from Lec to my queries.I don't understand how it can be dumping and freezing water on the base if you have only had it such a short time. Certainly should not happen. Never did with...

Re: Phasing out of fast freeze switches on freezers

Thanks, both. It's the height which is the problem. Can't be more than about 176 cm. and about 55m wide. The model I am considering is TF55178 which they say can't be in a garage or shed or anywhere below 16C which my kitchen might possibly get down to in the deep mid winter unless I leave some hea...

Re: Phasing out of fast freeze switches on freezers

I don't recall when we last had a fast freeze switch on our fridge freezers. But then we've been "frost free" for about 15 years, so perhaps it doesn't apply then? Slarti The Lec model is frost free, but then so is my present one and it has a fast freeze switch. Do you know what the freez...

Re: Phasing out of fast freeze switches on freezers

I urgently need a new fridge freezer as mine never switches off and the freezer section is getting iced up and drawers difficult to pull out. Could this all be related. Have you tried emptying and fully defrosting? We do ours every couple of years. How old is it? I don't know; it was here when we m...
