Duralex Glasses – Almost unbreakable tumblers that are a design classic.
We got a set when we got married 27 years ago. They are touted as being virtually unbreakable, and this is a perfect description. I believe we’ve replaced 2 of the 18 glasses in that time, and no other glasses have gone the distance with us. They are clear drinking glasses, but can also be used in the freezer or for hot tea. They are probably microwave friendly, but I’m not sure since we don’t have a microwave.
They have a 100% guarantee, even if your dog chews through it, they’ll replace it. There’s even a way to just take a picture of the damaged item and then they ship a new one to you for free. Also made in New Hampshire if that matters to you at all.
Robot Coupe Food Processor – Nothing even comes close to a Robot Coupe! They are damn near bulletproof but very expensive
Stanley Lunch Box – Classic Stanley. Heavy duty design, latches, and handle.
Seiko Watches – Japanese watch company Seiko has a very rich history for making quality timepieces
My Seiko is the only watch I haven’t killed yet. It cost roughly half what the others have. No frills but still looks professional. I opted for a fabric NATO band as I am hairy. Survived lots of metal working, exercise, swimming and general idiocy.
‘Selvedge’ denim is studier because the weft thread loops back every row meaning even if you do get a tear, those threads are anchored better than regular denim.
Pelican Air 1535 – Widely regarded as an industry benchmark. This case has been well-proven by pro photographers and film-makers alike who trust it to safely carry high-end gear
8 years of hard abuse and no seems have ripped, no clips have broken, the velcro still grips tight and the color hasn’t faded even a tiny little bit. Best $160 you can spend.
Really nice chess set that will probably outlive you with proper care.
