The best, cheapest thing

When I look back on all the things I’ve bought in the last ten years, there are a few items that get very frequent use, yet I only paid a very small amount of money for them. Leading the pack for me is our hot air popcorn popper. I spent $10 for it back at the beginning of the millennium and use it several times a week. It does a great job at popping popcorn, which is what I purchased it to do, and smells like fall time in South Jersey before putting the kernels in.

Thank you, hot air popcorn popper, for being my trusty, useful, cheap friend.

The best cooking-related gifts I got were a wok and a rice cooker. Both cost under $20. The silver vegetable tray and the silver water pitcher, which probably cost ten times as much, almost never see use.

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!
