I occasionally buy matches to light my candles and tea lights, especially now that my lighter has lost the will to live. My normal match of choice would be a Swan Vesta match but a close second choice will always be a Cooks Original Match. I like the box these come in as I always think it looks quit old fashioned and slightly quaint, with its sketch of a stew pot on the front and its old fashioned yellowing background. I buy these matches from any of the supermarkets I happen to be in at the time and a box of 210 to 220 matches normally costs me about 70p. The box needs to be pushed from one end and it will slide out at the other to reveal the matches ... Read the complete review

This is a review of The Original Cook's Matches, a box of matches I have owned for over a year now and have just returned to using after having some extra long ones to use with the deeper jar style candles. My uses I really only use these for lighting candles, mainly the jar style and tea light candles and of course birthday candles. I find that 99% of the time they light easily (striking away from yourself) and last long enough to light the wick of the candle. I am a bit of a wuss when lighting matches and scared of burning myself hence the previous box of longer matches but these are actually longer than the traditional match size so you do get a ...

I have a multi fuel burner at home and so when it comes to lighting the fire the search for a lighter is always on, there are two smokers in my family and they go outside to smoke taking the lighters with them and many a time I have had to hunt around the house for a light for the fire, so now I buy these :- The Original Cook's Matches and they cost me 68p from Tesco's and last me about a month just using them for the fire lighting. The box is about four inches long and three wide so it's nothing a smoker can pop in their pocket and walk off with never to be seen again. It is a light yellow box that is wipe clean if your using it in the kitchen for ... Read the complete review

The Original Cooks Matches are probably one of the most well known brands of matches that you can buy. They even come by Appointent to H.M the Queen, so I guess that if they are used by royalty, then they must be good for me! I always keep a box of matches in the house, as we have an open fire in the winter and hold BBQs in the summer. I find these matches light really well (only one strike usually) and they burn fairly slowly, so you can get a fire started in the hearth using just one match. They don't burn right down to your fingers either, so obviously that is a huge safety factor. The matches are sold in large wipe-clean box which naturally ... Read the complete review

There is something very reassuring about a box of "The Original Cook's Matches", they seem to have an authority about them that says, "Don't worry we will get you through the power cut." That is why I keep a box on top of my key basket in the kitchen with a couple of candles You never know when you might need them. Size Matters. Because the box measures a whopping 7cm x12cm it is very easy to find the box as opposed to sneaky little lighters and standard match boxes. The front of the box, (which you are able to wipe clean), is a yellow, beige colour with a traditional old fashioned scroll effect surrounding the legend "The ... Read the complete review
