1. Welcome to the new Styleforum!

    We hope you’re as excited as we are to hang out in the new place. There are more new features that we’ll announce in the near future, but for now we hope you’ll enjoy the new site.

    We are currently fine-tuning the forum for your browsing pleasure, so bear with any lingering dust as we work to make Styleforum even more awesome than it was.

    Oh, and don’t forget to head over to the Styleforum Journal, because we’re giving away two pairs of Carmina shoes to celebrate our move!

    Please address any questions about using the new forum to support@styleforum.net

    Cheers,

    The Styleforum Team

    i know what a centrifuge does, I did take HS chem and biology. But seriously, those are not kitchen tools.

    Well, it doesn't have ugly granite, swirly wood and disgusting designs on the ceiling, I can tell you that.

    I didn't learn that in HS Chem or Bio. Must be nice going to those fancy ass Atlanta public schools!

    For the amount of equipment that kitchen houses, I think I could manage to look past the aesthetics.

    It does have a pug hanging around like he owns the place, though.

    Are you purchasing one yourself or receiving it as a gift? Sticker still $625?

    Purchasing. I think it will be useful for me; I like learning new things on my own. Thankfully, it's no longer $625.

    Tell them that the plastic case was cracked. They will most likely offer you a partial refund.
