I'm really into owning a very small number of things, but each piece that I carefully select to carry with me though my life, I want to be special. That could mean vintage or newly designed. Something that looks exquisite in my home and functions smoothly. I'm a designer myself, so nuances of user experience are important as the aesthetic.
The staub pot is too heavy and chunky. I like it but it's not "the one". The barista is not my style. I prefer stove top. Wondering if anyone has had this epic issue too? LOL
