Products to avoid

Bluebonnet margarine.

Eww. Does not melt well. Looked really nasty when used for making scrambled eggs.

Thank you for starting this thread. Black & Decker GH1000. I'm talking POST recall. Bought one last week and took it back a few hours later. U S E L E S S

Calls into question ANY "dual-string, auto-feed" mechanism.

Elvive Colour Protect Shampoo.
Tangled my hair so badly I thought I was going to have to have it cut.

The irony being it is designed for damaged hair.
My hair wasn't all that damaged until I used it.

Smoothie makers - any of them.

It's just a food blender and you probably already have one of those, if you don't you can buy one for half the price or less.

I had the same experience with a hair treatment for damaged hair. After the "treatment" my hair felt like steel wool that had been run through a garbage disposal full of superglue. I think the stuff was called Infusium.

"Infusium" ... lol ... that yells "made up crap" straight away.

I will be avoiding any products by Western Digital. (which name of course shouts "made in China" very loudly).

The Garden Weasel is a blessing from God. See, ya take the big long handle off, and replace it with a little short handle. Then it fits in the backpack right beside the sprouting solution, and the little sack of seeds. Then, when you're in the farmer's field, all ya gotta do is roll the Weasel back & forth a few times, drop a seed or five, dribble a little sprout fuel on there, cover up, and you're ready to move on.

That's what I've heard, anyway...

Butter to grease the pan, yes.
Butter as an ingredient...? How does that work?

La Preferida spanish rice mix - tastes like salt and nothing else.

Old El Paso Spanish rice - the one where you just heat up the package in the micro. It's inedible.

Stir a couple slim shavings into the eggs cooking in the pan so they melt into the rest of it. The butter doesn't scorch, that may be why.
