Episode 6 of our Recommends YouTube show is live and ready for you to enjoy while having a coffee and a well-earned biscuit. Recommends is the best of our reviews section, the crème de la crème that received the highest marks and are worthy of further acclaim to explain why they stand out.

There is plenty to get stuck into this month as it was a busy time for our reviewers. They were impressed with a whopping 15 products which was a lot to squeeze into what is already a packed show. But that just gives you more to have a look at.
