Nice, but did you get a dog and drink (with refil) for $1.50?

Alas, no, it was packed and there was a huge-rear end line. Took me 10 minutes of waiting even to get out the door.

I know I know, ďdo you even Costco broĒ, but rona is spiking again and Iím not waiting in close proximity with 27 maskless karens and greggs for 15 minutes for a hot dog, the suburban one is ironically a lot less packed

edit: For as great as Costco is, ironically the chud menards gives 100x more fucks about the state mask rule. Maybe when Costco actually starts enforcing masks maybe I can have $1.50 dogs and drink (with free refill) once again.

RE: KitchenAid mixers.
Maybe double check with the Goons With Spoons kitchen equipment thread. I recall there being several different types of mixers in that style and some have plastic parts instead of metal and don't last as long. Costco has stocked both types in the past.

RE: Blenders
I have the $70 Ninja they sell online and in stores. I am not a blender connoisseur, but it does my blended ice drinks and everything else just fine. If you're the type of person making a fruit smoothie for breakfast every morning then splurging for the Vitamix may make sense, but I think the Ninja will handle most people's needs. DO NOT TOUCH THE BLADES! They're sharp as gently caress, at least out of the package.

RE: Sheetcakes.
Super lame, but understandable I suppose. My kids looked at the display every trip and talked about which they'd pick for their birthday. In the whole scope of things, disappointing children seems pretty minor, but it makes me really sad.

I bought a kitchen aid mixer on an amazing sale years and years ago but Iíve almost never used it, shamefully. Food processor and blenders I use but mixer almost never.

i used to have a kitchenaid food processor and it was great, not the same one on sale at costco, it was a bigger one... for blenders i prefer glass pitchers which for some reason only come with like cheap oysters because i do a lot of savory purees and stuff that can stain or odorize plastics and having used a $60 oster and a $400 ninja the results just aren't worth it

if you want to make bread the bigass kitchenaid stand mixer is king, the smaller size is only good for whipped cream and cookies and stuff, dough will climb out and escape the smaller bowl

I almost forgot when I walked into the Costco a couple was wheeling out a chest freezer. It was a smaller one, like 7cuft I think?

That's a good idea, when I buy cold stuff I just rush home and unpack it ASAP.

There were two more in stock when I went in by the way. The chest freezers have returned to Costco, commerce is healing.

ASK ME ABOUT MY AWESOME STARTUP IDEA




Pillbug

When I was at church on Sunday, a guy made it past the door checker without a mask.

I was in line behind him checking out, and the sweet older woman cashier yelled at him for not having a mask until the manager came over. The manager took his cart and told him to leave, and that if he entered without a mask again they were cancelling his membership.

I love my Costco!

Just chiming in to say that KitchenAid mixers are great. I have my grandparents old one that is from the 50ís and it works just as well as it did when I was a kid. One thing worth mentioning is that there are attachments for it that work great for slicing, grinding and shredding.
In fact, thatís our main use for it... shredding cheese.
We have the old style all cast aluminum original attachments, but Iím certain that if we bought some new ones they would fit.

They really are worth the money

The Pro 600 seems like a great value and has more power, but its too big and sucks unless you're making big things, and also its loud as poo poo.

I got the Hot Bitchin Sauce, wow they aren't kidding. That was like the deep burn, this is gonna heat up your stomach for the next few hours hot.

Did not like the pesto style though. It didn't really taste of pesto. I have been eating the Kirkland Pesto with eggs, pasta or bread semi regularly so my taste buds might be a little used to the flavor.

Yeah I do have one even although it is sucking less lately (heh) for whatever reason. I guess it isnít as ageless as the usual lovely parm powder I get.
