Blender Parts

Huyen and I inherited a nice, old-school Waring blender recently. The only thing it’s missing is the little rubber gasket that goes inside to prevent leaking. Simple, right? You’d think so.

I tried finding one locally, with absolutely zero luck. I found one online for a mere 95 cents, but there’s something morally wrong about paying five times more than the product costs for shipping.

I finally found a place in northern VA that might have it, but they are a good 45 minutes away. The money spent on gas would end up being almost as much as shipping from the above store.

It would be nice if Waring had a web site (I’m pretty sure they’re still around), since this is the type of thing the manufacturer might just sent you for free. -ram

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
