Post a product that has changed your life for the better. Expensive or cheap, large or small...whatever.

 

I now present to you...

 

 

 

THE TubShroom!! After living with female roommates for the past few years and having a gf that sheds like a Siberian Husky, purchasing this genius product has been a gamechanger. After years of unclogging shower drains in various away I purchased one of these randomly on Amazon. Works like a fucking charm. Men of the OC...you are welcome.

    For me it has been switching from teflon to cast iron pans...after years of my gf destroying our teflon pans by using metal spatulas and silverware which scratches the teflon off and ruins the pans, we have been using the same three cast iron pans now for 5 years and we don't have to argue about her damaging the cookware and the investment has already paid of 6x easily.

    You completely replaced teflon with cast iron? I use my cast iron a lot, but no sure I could get rid of nonstick. 

    I'm considering trying stainless steel. That's pretty much the standard in the chef world, but every time I've used one, I wished I hadn't.

    Why?  I have an all-clad stainless steel set and it's amazing.

    Cleaning the pan was a bitch and food was sticking. Maybe not enough lube?? 

    We have all clad everything in our test kitchen. Baller stuff.

    Cooking with a cast iron skillet is fantastic.

    I've been reading some very bad things about Lasik. 

    I had cataract surgery 2 years ago. Life changing. 

    I will also throw in Huggies wipes.

    Bit off the beaten path but products that have changed my life:

    Bicycle. Helped me rediscover my love for physical activity, and one that I can continue with and be competitive with as I age.

    High Quality items: Early in my 20s, I discovered that I'd rather pay double for items that are well made and built to last. This includes clothes, furniture, cars, kitchen knives, etc.. I'd much rather have 1 really well made pair of jeans than 5 shitty pairs. Took me too long to realize this. Invest in quaility and it will pay for itself many times over.
