My sister sent my Mom a Belgian style Cusinart (tm) waffle maker. Mom didn't need it but had mentioned, in passing, that she missed Belgian style waffles. Mom's old, perfectly good, regular, maker has gone into the donation bin, and I've made her the thick, Belgian style, waffles  several times.
 
My only complaint is the non removable cooking surface. My own, otherwise average waffle maker, has dishwasher safe cooking surfaces, that just pop right out.
 
What would Waffle House (tm) do??

I just called the Waffle House district manager for the one I go to -- her name is Rachel -- and she told me they use Dawn whenever it is needed (which isn't often, as they always use a release agent before putting batter on the iron).

Funny and we're looking for a "regular" waffle maker, and all we find is the Belgian kind. Don't want a thick waffle. We're looking for what we grew up with!!

We don't even own a waffle iron.  Why bother when he goes to the WAFFLE HOUSE every, every morning!

And I always order a waffle. Twice a year. Once in the Spring and once in the Fall. But we do now have the stuff to make the buckwheat flapjacks she asked for

The Ryobi One system. In my day, Ryobi made a nice printing press. Today they make power drills, saws, and garden tools, all powered by the same interchangeable, rechargeable batteries. I think that they are exclusive to Home Depot. The Ryobi tools are consumer quality (and priced). The entry level, professional, "Rigid" tools sold at Home Depot are made by the same company, according to a biz radio show.
 
The Ryobi tools are so good for what they cost, that I often see pros using them, under the system,"Wear it out,,throw it out". 
 
My most recent buy, a string weed trimmer, is as powerful as the light weight gas models, and is said to run "up to" an hour per charge. In my case, the job is done, before the battery needs to be charged.  The easy to install string refills, are much more expensive than the bulk string used by most trimmers, but they last a long time.

5 STAR Urgent Response is a great product. A family member who lives alone, but has health issues, has used it in the middle of the night with good results. The little necklace pendant has a "help" button that works anywhere that has cell service, and the operators who answer are pros. I understand that the "improved" model is even better (smaller). The necklace itself (WalMart, Target etc) is reasonably priced, and the monthly fee is well worth the cost.

Well, I bought 3 new non stick pans. Two I got on Amazon, during their Prime Day sale. These were an 8" and a 12" Tramontina professional/restaurant series. Nice nonstick coating and aluminum casting. Pretty slick and dishwasher safe. Have to see how they hold up over time, though. The other pan was one that just popped up in my Facebook feed as a review piece from one of the gourmet mags. It is an 8" J.A. Henckle's Madura Plus and it is slick as all get out. No rivets for the handle to make cleanup harder. One solid cast piece. Really nice surface, doesn't even need any oil. Sadly, not dishwasher safe and only good to about 300 degrees in the oven. Still in all it is a great pan and cooks very well, nice and hefty and distributes heat better than the Tramontina's. The price was very good, too. If you need a new nonstick stop in and get one.

The holidays are coming, and at least here in New England, sweet cider is a must with the holiday meals. Our local Carlson Orchard makes a very nice cider that I got yesterday at my local supermarket for just 1.99 per 1/2 gal. It is pasteurized, but contains no sorbate. The "sell by" date is in early December, a good sign. One company makes a "fresh" cider with a "sell by" date of March, and another puts no "sell by" date at all. Sorbate is, I suppose, a good and safe product, but IMO it does not belong in "fresh" cider.
 
The Carlson Orchard product  compares well to my own cider, and because it has no sorbate, it (I understand) can be made into a very nice hard cider, if you add yeast. (the natural yeasts are killed in pasteurization). The website shows that Carlson makes a sorbate containing product too, so if you see it, make sure to buy the right one!

I like to have a Victorinox Swiss Army Knives Wine Master. I missed the opportunity to purchase one last Thanksgiving since I prioritize the installation of warn winch for my dad's truck.
