Great idea for a thread, Charles. I like the appreciative nature of it.
My wife often points out that "you're never sorry about buying the 'good' one"
I also bring my lunch to work most days; I like the healthy options (often not taken, but still), savings and convenience. I've been absolutely flabbergasted by the quality of the allegedly disposable Ziploc storage containers
. Better than Glad and several others we've tried. They seem just as durable as Tupperware.
I love my autoseal Contigo Travel mug
. By far, the best of the many I've lost
used over the years.
Good knives are a joy. We have some Wusthof and some Henckels, but I'm also very impressed with the reasonably-priced Victorinox/Forschner brand. We keep them sharp with the wonderful Chef's Choice sharpener
. Steels are to maintain an edge; this thing creates a new edge just in case you're not all that diligent about using the steel all the time. Or ever.
This probably doesn't qualify as a product, but after years of wearing progressives and trifocals, I finally bought a pair of full-frame, prescription reading glasses for computer use. Big improvement in quality of life and work. I know I have mentioned them before, but I still can't believe the utter design greatness of my Rudy Project
We have a Dyson vacuum. It just works.
