Living in Wisconsin I can assure with 100% accuracy that Culvers is our favorite and it’s the best on the map. Can’t go wrong with a fresh butter burger and cheese curds followed by frozen custard for dessert. Read more

Mod is awesome- kinda like the Chipotle style of production line with really good topping selection, all toppings free.

No What-a-Burgers in Nebraska, as one person pointed-out, but at least Bojangle’s being NC’s favorite is incredibly plausible. It’s delicious and very much worth a visit if you’re ever in the area.

Most of these picks are fucking ridiculous. Winner goes to silicon spatula because it’s the most versatile thing in the kitchen. The only things it can’t do are chop and measure and every cook from idiot to professional can and loves to use it.

This is the closest draft yet — probably because everyone has at least 3 indispensable tools. How could you have a kitchen without a knife, wooden AND silicone AND steel spatulas, skillet, whisk, and tongs? This should have been at least 8 rounds to be able to separate a clear winner. Read more

Allison gets my vote although I would like to sneak over one column and scoop up the silicon spatula.

Is there such a thing as a too-dirty martini? At 7:15am, yes, probably. At 7:15pm, not a chance.
