Did I ever tell you about the dinner fork I have that’s lasted 30 years (so far)?

I feel like my yogurt spoon at work used to be bigger

I'm convinced that there are like 12 real BIFL items and this sub covered them all in the first month of it's existence. Now we get screenshots of tongs tagged "Review".

Are you commenting on that specific pair of tongs?

I've used a lot of tongs in my life, some consumer models wouldn't last a week in a commercial kitchen

I've got a crappy pair that haven't done well in a home kitchen. We only keep them around because I keep forgetting to get a new pair...

Well, it's a good thing most of us don't live in a commercial kitchen then.


Culverin t1_j9lroa8 wrote

Think of it this way,

If a piece of equipment can last a week in a commercial kitchen, it can last years in a home kitchen.

If it can last more than a year in that environment?
Then you're in BIFL territory

Often times, they perform better and are easier to clean and cheaper as well

Isn't Kitchenaid just another brand name that has been bought by some megacorp and made in China?


podaypodayson t1_j9hogqt wrote

KitchenAid is owned by Whirlpool and is American owned. Though I’d be willing to bet items like these are purchased from Chinese suppliers and simply branded as kitchenaid.

It got big and people come here to karma farm with the oldest thing or most uselessly BIFL thing they own to karma farm.

No, he’s right. It’s a shark vacuum and DT sock circlejerk. I stick around because every once in a while there is a nugget of good info (Fox River socks, Miele/SEBO vacuums, Edlund tongs) but it’s mostly trash/disposable products IMO.

On the socks subject…the original creators of Smartwool have a new company called Point6. Haven’t tried them, just an FYI
