Did you happen to notice that weirdo at the end of your aisle fondling the cases of canning jars? Or that loop-de-doo gazing longingly at a stainless steel mixing bowl?
Lean in a little closer, I need to whisper.
That loon is me.
Now shhhhhh! Stop gasping and pointing in horror. Glass and stainless are great materials. You'll have these objects forever, as opposed to replacing plastic versions over and over.
So come, share the love, and take to replacing your worn out plastics with durable metal, glass and ceramic. You'll be glad you did.
