We've gone through nearly every brand of non-stick skillets. How's the blue diamond for longevity? Heritage The Rock seems to be the worse brand.

We too have bought all the latest "more durable" non-stick brands that say they can even handle steel utensils and dishwashers. No wonder brands and models change so frequently. They're on the shelves for 6 months, then they're phased out - even the Kirkland Brand (unsure who made that one). With all of them, scratches started arriving, with no dishwasher use, using silicone utensils, and storing in towels. They're even putting messages on some premium non-sticks to say that scratches are normal and don't impede performance and not to worry about consuming non-stick (supposingly non-toxic) flakes. Waiting for the next infomercial brand to hit the store shelves.

I'm a bit surprised to see a watermelon for $13. Seems expensive..
Only Costco. It has been on sale for $6-$7 elsewhere for a while now (RCSS, freshco, Walmart, etc). Tho I prefer the ones from Costco, hard to justify 2x the price.

Thank you TDG. Nice to see you are still able to do the weekly posts at Costco. I hope you are recovering from the car accident.

I was at the Costco Bellingham, WA and bought the last hammock chair but will have to return it. It was a fail at our house. The chair back flops forward when you sit in it - we could not see anywhere to stabilize the back. I found it a bit awkward to sit and get out of too - a bit too low.

Have you considered heavily seasoned cast iron? Mine gets good to the point I can do pancakes on them perfectly. And it's good with knives and everything too.

Second cast iron especially if seasoned properly which is not hard. We had blue diamond typical marketing sticks after a while…

Maybe it's already pre-loaded with the vodka?

Any opinion on the Dremel oscillation tool? I only want to buy one for the next 20 years.

Anyone pick up the slip and slide? My wife bought one and I told her I could make one out of a tarp and some soapy water. It’s underwhelming to say the least even at 10’x52’…

I’m wondering if it’s time to admit defeat and open the $100 box.

Someone close to me has a different brand oscillating tool and loves it because it can be used like an electric chisel. Very handy!

Been using tfal stainless drypna it's been very durable. But still have to take care of it, no steel utensils or knifes it still can scratch it up

Yes, that's what I use. I have a nicely seasoned Lodge cast iron skillet.

My SO needs a light non-stick pan. I may have to consider a light carbon steel pan at this rate. It'll be cheaper over the long run.
