What's still useful after 30 years?
Cooking a dinner for guests yesterday, I realized that I was reaching, as usual, for my old carbon steel Sabatier knife, with the tip long ago broken off. It is the only knife in my drawer that is easy to sharpen and I still use it daily--it is, by now, almost 40 years old. I started to think, as I worked, about those things that are still useful after 30 or more years. Magnalite pots, an ancient garlic press, aluminum measuring cups, my kitchen cabinets (!).
What do you reach for, first, in your kitchen that is that old?
