Time to take a look at another feature we hope to keep alive on this blog with some reasonably regular posts.
If you haven’t noticed the little note I threw at the bottom of the page, our kitchen and this little blog are not sponsored. We don’t have a syndicated TV show, our own line of utensils, or a kitchen full of spotless copper cookware. We’re regular people – a husband and wife with two kids, a couple of pets, jobs, and plenty of daily responsibility. We work hard to make enough money to take care of the necessities and leave a little bit left for “creature comforts” that might make our lives a little easier or more comfortable. So when we do buy something, we want to make sure what we’re getting is worth it – in terms of quality and value – even if it might cost a little more. We research, compare, test-drive in person when possible, and ultimately make a choice and hope it was a good one. And usually, we’re very satisfied with our decisions.
Sometimes we’re not. Sometimes we buy something that should be awesome and ends up being worthless – either broken after a few uses, or simply unable to perform the functions it was designed for. Sometimes we end up with something that sucks.
So, we’re here with this feature to highlight those things we’ve come to use in our kitchen that don’t suck. Tools, gadgets, maybe even appliances that we’ve paid for and that have lived up to our expectations. Things that we would recommend to others. Things we would buy again.
