Ankarsrum. Truly BIFL.

Kitchen Aid is trash these days. I burned up an Artisan, rebuilt it, burned it up again, bought a pro-line, was well on my way to killing it, retired it to backup duty and bought an Ankarsrum. Couldn’t be happier.

Nobody even considers Cuisinart when talking stand mixers.

Walking shoes should never be BIFL. They’re a wear item. After a certain number of miles the cushion breaks down and no longer does its job. Also the soles, and construction in general, need to be light weight so it wears out quickly.

Just get a good pair and consider them disposable.

How much of a klutz are you that you can scratch up a phone screen in a couple months? I’ve put literally one noticeable scratch on a screen, working many construction projects, in the last 20 years. I’ve never used screen protectors.

Keep your eyes peeled for a Cuisinart. They show up at Goodwill and yard sales all the time.

Of course, having said that, there’s a reason they do. Food processors are generally more trouble than they’re worth. I’m a super avid cook and there’s almost nothing I can’t do faster and easier with another tool. I have one, but I generally only break it out 2 or 3 times per year for some super specialized task.
