EVENTS CENTRE COASTING HOME By DAVID STEWART New and GOOD World premiere SWISS chocolate-maker Lindt has chosen Australia for the launch of its Lindt Essence range. The new chocolates come in individually wrapped 15g squares, and there are 10 squares per bag. And unlike some chocolate makers who try too hard to impress by using exotic nuts or overpowering goo as the fillings, the good folk at Lindt have kept it nice and simple here. There are two bags to look for: Milk and Dark Caramel squares, and the Assorted, featuring a mix of Milk Caramel, Dark Raspberry and Dark Mint squares. RRP $7.99 per bag. Stuff we've tested, tasted or tried... and liked. This sucks COASTING is a sucker for hand-held vacuums, and we've gone through a few over the years. But frankly, the main reason that we have gone through a few is that they lose their grunt over time, and ultimately disappoint. And there is always a new 'improved' hand-held that tempts us to 'upgrade'. So it was with some scepticism that we accepted an invitation to trial the new top-of- the-line Dyson DC31 Motorhead. The Dyson digital motor is said to be half the size and weight of conventional motors, but able to deliver twice the output. Well, this big boy is definitely bulkier and heavier than some of the hand-helds that we've owned, but it's true, it packs a punch. Coasting's own test kids gave the new hand- held a caning at home for a month, and they worshipped it like a Nintendo DS. Almost... According to the blurb, Dyson hand-helds feature patented Radix Cyclone technology to spin dust and dirt out of the air so that they don't lose suction as they go. The motor spins at more than 100,000 revs per minute, which is faster than a Formula One race car engine. You get about 10 minutes of cleaning time per charge. And if you choose to show off and activate the boost button on the DC31 Motorhead you get even more suction, but at this higher energy level you get six minutes of run time before you need to plug it back in to the power point to recharge. It's got some nice ergonomic features that give it a balanced pick-up, and attachments such as a brush bar to more easily cope with cleaning pet hair and lint. And it looks serious. The recommended retail price (RRP) for the hand-helds: DC30 $249. DC31 $299. DC31 Motorhead $349. Go to www.dyson.com.au . Oils aint oils THE Coasting family sampled Lanolips 101 Ointment during the windy weeks of August when cracked and dried lips seem to hit us hardest. And we were impressed! Lanolips 101 Ointment is 100 per cent lanolin (yep, we're still riding on the sheep's back...), and this is the good stuff -- the highly refined medical grade lanolin which is apparently used after operations to hygienically cover wounds to keep them moist and boost the healing time. According to the blurb, the glossy oils in lanolin are very similar to those secreted naturally by our skin, which makes it one of nature's ''wonder skincare ingredients''. The RRP for Lanolips 101 Ointment (17.5ml) is $17.95. Available from chemists and department stores. Go to www.lanolips.com .
