There are certain appliance and cookware brands which over the years have rarely, if ever, let me down.
I love Sears refrigerators, stoves and other large appliances which are not food-related so can't be mentioned here. They may not be the trendy kid on the block, but they are reasonably priced, do their job with few repairs and last for years.
I like Pyrex. If it rarely breaks due to failure of the product, they cheerfully replace it.
Also for sheer durability is Corelle dishes. I still have the set I bought when they first started selling and only two pieces broke due to EXTREME abuse.
What are your favorite brands?
