I came across an article on planned obsolescence today. It got me to thinking abou products that don't adhere to that business philosophy. What products do you own that will never go bad or are designed to last for a very long time?
One that I have is a Swing-Away can opener. Excellent product and I don't see ever having to buy another.
My Emerson fans are like that, too. The single-bearing hollow shaft motors are indestructible and work even if they've been left outside for 20 years.
I have some old rotary telephones that seemingly can't be destroyed, like my Estwing hammer. Or my professional Calphalon cookware (without nonstick coating).
What do you own that seems to be designed to last forever? It can be anything, from a great car to a cast iron skillet. I'd like to know what you have that holds up for a very long time without repairs and isn't designed to replaced every few years.
