Buy less; make do.
If you must buy, buy once and make it count.
Here are our favourite ‘buy-once’ tools and goodies that get the job done, make sense in a low-waste life, last and last, and look dang good doing it.
We have made a start here, and will add to our favourites over time to build a selection you can rely on ❤️
My handsome cast iron 5.2L Staub Cocotte with Steamer, and boy is it earning its keep. The steamer on top takes it to a new level, so we get two ways to cook in every meal.

Rex is our old faithful. No, not a dog, a jar. Rex jars. They and their WECK cousins preserve, store, display and celebrate your food beautifully. Zero plastic, oven, freezer and microwave safe too.
