You remember my slow cooker? The one I broke? Twice? I really didn't want to buy a new one, because I had already done that once and it's important to me to make things last. (Evidence: My husband's car has 175,000 miles. My car, "the new one," has 95,000 miles, and we aren't considering a car purchase anytime soon.) Before I replaced my cooker, I got in touch with Brenton Sadreameli of Mr. B's Sustainable Glassworks, known for their authentic bottleneck guitar slides and other sustainable glassware.
