Charles, I didn't know you had a Spatula City in Richland. Lucky.

I really like the design of these measuring spoons. I can't speak to their durability yet, but I do like the magnetic stacking for storage, the two ends depending on what you're extracting ingredients from, and the flat bottoms so you can have them sitting full on the counter until you need whatever you've measured.

Also, if you need a great zester, this Microplane is tons better than the KitchenAid one I had before. I haven't used it to grate yet, but I can vouch for the zesting. It may have been TOO good at it, putting more zest into the dish than necessary.

Do I sound too domestic? I swear I'm not cooking as much as it sounds like, even though I should be.

I recently picked up a handheld magnetic sweeper from here http://www.bluestreakequipment.com/ and I love it! I can't believe all the rusted roofing and barn nails, screws, staples and other crap I am finding.

This company doesn't cut any corners with its products. Great packaging (wooden crate), build quality (strong but also light feeling at the same time) and most importantly they don't skimp with the magnets (this is where all the weight is). Very strong! I am finding that it is picking up a lot stuff that is slightly buried beneath the gravel that I can't see.

That looks like what the roofers went over my yard with last year when I had my roof re-shingled.

Once you get bored with those, you could try one of these. grin

They've fancied these up a bit. I remember when it was a kit, without the motor, that you had to assemble. I forgot what type of motor you used. 1970's vintage VW maybe. It didn't have a body either.

Yeah, that one is all gussied up. You can still buy kits or just plans for hardcore diy. I really want to fly one of these.

Edit: just updated my bucket list. grin

For the kitchen:

-Black & Decker bread machine
-Cuisinart mini-chopper/processor
-Cutco knives (made in USA)-easily beat out similarly-priced Germans

For the house:

-Toto low-flush toilets

Although it's technically HT, the built-in DVD player for the car is the single greatest invention in the history of humanity. Those of you with children will know exactly what I mean

I just upgraded my Sonicare E-series to this one. I love it! I liked the old one, but I got fed up with the screw-on replacement brushes. These replacement brushes push on, so the vibration doesn't change over time nor does a lot of gunk collect around them. They aren't lying when they say it cleans better than the E-series either. My teeth actually DO feel much cleaner than they did before.
