I grew up mixing sriracha (or the garlic chili paste that comes in a jar) with salt and dipping various fruit in it - apples, pineapples, nectarines, etc. A very common Vietnamese way to snack!

Is There a Plastic-Free Electric Kettle? Good Questions

I agree with amisaacs. I did a lot of research on this and went for the Hamilton Beach. There is a little bit of plastic that holds the filter at the top but it's attached to the list, so if you have the lid open (push of a button) while pouring, no water touches it! No water viewing window means no plastic!

I use a dish towel and then toss it in the wash - don't have to worry about storage or something permanently taking up counter space.

I have one with the food processor attachment. I use it to grate parmesan, and make pesto. Much easier to clean than my Vitamix for these small jobs.

I just let everything dry on a dish towel. Then after a couple uses, toss the towel in the wash with the rest of my laundry. One less thing to buy and store!

I'm with Soozer. Vitamix all the way. Sure it's pricey but it replaces so many appliances, easy to clean, and has a 7 year warranty.

I don't see the point in ironing napkins. Does anyone really care if they are wrinkled?
