We adopted a child from Vietnam several years ago. I can remember the hassle of cleaning food, brushing teeth and always worrying about whether I had clean drinking water when we were touring - if it wasn't bottled we didn't drink it. The people were so friendly, but I just wasn't sure if the water they provided was good to drink (and was always told to never drink it). The O-Pen would have solved all of that. I know that when I travel in the future this is definitely coming along with me!

Superior Quality for Lifetimes
"I have been cooking for 50 years and have never owned a rack as sturdy or well-built as this one. Yes, you can get cooling racks for far less money. However, many of the less expensive ones are thin-gauge stainless steel or chrome-plated steel; they will bend, warp and deteriorate with time. If you are serious about cooking and baking and want your cooling rack to last a lifetime or two, this is a rack that should be part of your cooking and baking arsenal.

As an outdoor enthusiast and Scouter, I always worry about whether my boys have listened to me and brought enough food, water and other essentials (warm clothing, bug spray!). Water is always my biggest concern. People can be hungry and smell, but they need plenty of water. I've done everything from packing extra water myself (which is a lot of weight!) to trying to have other filtration and/or purifying tablets, etc. But the more I've learned about water purification and the more I've experienced other products, the more I appreciate the O-Pen's solution. While it doesn't filter (important to note when purifying drinking water from lakes), it purifies the water and makes it taste good. No iodine, no "lake taste"; just good water. It's an easy choice for me to pack along - light weight, easy to use and a safe source of water!

A Baking Rack for Every Project
"I paid more, and I definitely got more with this rack. Fits perfectly in a half sheet pan, has higher than usual feet, and not only is the rack heavier weight wire, but there is a center support. This rack will work for a roast, turkey, hold a pie or a lasagna pan without any problem. If that's important to you, this is your rack. It fit in the bottom rack dishwasher and washed clean and shiny."
