There are so many threads on here complaining about Ebay. Yet, there is free competition from Craigslist. Why is Ebay still so widely used? Why hasn't everyone switched to Craigslist? Is the regional nature of Craigslist a deterent? What would you do to make Ebay better?
I don't drink any milk. It is better used in the production of cheese, yogurt, etc.
What about assholes that know they are more important than everyone else? Do you have a different opinion of them? Kind of like a small timer asshole versus big timer asshole. . .

I thought it would be interesting to discuss what you consider to be necessary for a well stocked home kitchen. Things like materials, places to save money versus spend more, etc are important points to make. For this thread, let's discuss cookware choices. Here is what I consider important: 1 large stockpot, Al or stainless, 12 or 16 quart 1 small stockpot, Al or stainless 8 quart 1 cast iron dutch oven, 4 quart 1 cast iron skillet, 12 inch 1 stainless saute...
