Complaining and complementing

It seems nothing is made to last anymore, regardless of what you pay! At least with appliances. I don’t know how the landfills are not full of appliances just a few years old.

I did have a bowl under the strainer and threw that water/seasoning/grease mix outside. I did wipe out the red stainer but WAY more grease obviously stayed in those holes than I would’ve thought!
