    I always rinse my own immediately after (or when I get up) I'm done and put it away. That issue in my house has been eliminated.

      Brother texastweeter, suffer NO taunts on this subject! You’re on the right path. We have a cleaning service come through every other week too. The girlfriend and I are both busy with careers through the week and put in a lot of hours.

      The way I see it, paying the cleaning ladies to do the stuff I DONT wanna do, leaves me more free time to do the stuff I DO wanna do with my precious free time.

      Like barbecue. 😃🙌

      Additionally, it’s financially responsible when I do the math. 😇

      If... the cost of the cleaning service is less than the number of hours it takes me to clean the house x (my hourly wage x 1.5) since I’d be cleaning it on the weekend, which is overtime pay... then it’s money well spent for something I don’t want to monkey with anyway. 👍

      I’m fortunate enough that when I do that math, it’s not even close. I’d be willing to wager that if more folks did the math, they’d come to the same answer.

    That cup had a lot of miles on it, but not as many as my one at work. The one at work is actually probably my favorite. She is so dark she looks like black iron, and can make even that office break room swill taste acceptable. Had it been that one, heads would have rolled. Appriceate you calmin me down brother, as I am known to fly off the handle when such egregious acts of terrororism are performed in my domicile. Mr. Bones I have even converted my oldest boy (13) over to the seasoned steel coffee cup and away from those disposable chain coffee companies.

    I cut this from an article don't want to be accused of plagerism

    The origin of not washing your coffee cup stems from the age when coffee cups were made of metal. An example can be still be seen with the Italian practice of seasoning a moka pot. When a metal coffee container (moka pot or coffee cup) is new/washed, the coffee takes on a metallic flavor. Once the container has been used once or twice, the oils from the coffee seal the internal surface preventing the metallic flavor from tainting the brew. (Many Italians believe that a new moka pot is not usable until several pots of coffee have been brewed and dumped out first)

    It is easy to imagine the evolution from practical process to tradition by thinking of the time of transition from metal to ceramic coffee mugs. The young service members who had not used metal coffee cups would be used to washing them, while the old senior leadership would still be in the habit of not washing them and probably had developed a taste for it (hence swearing that it tastes better when the mug is "seasoned").

      Being from the Navy made from the best distilled water you never wash your cup. Never in the years ah' served. The coffee just tasting better. Brought that cup home and SHMBO put it in the dishwasher, coffee never tasted the same again. Now at 66, I don't even drink the stuff unless it is a very special type like Jamaica Blue Mt. or Hawaiian Kona.

          I drink strong black coffee in a ceramic mug. I had no idea that not washing your mug was a thing, I just throw it in the dishwasher. I love the taste of freshly ground, freshly brewed coffee. Seems like a “seasoned” mug would detract from the freshness, but I wouldn’t know having never tried it.

          Not washing your cup is a bit like not cleaning your pit. My wife uses bleach on mine once a week. One day she didn't rinse it properly ,(yep, felt that ). I use a french press, but keep adding fresh ground to the old each day. When it gets to full of old grounds I toss them out (about once a week) Hace had this press for nearly 8 years.

        The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

        the good one grill

        The Good-One Open Range is a charcoal grill with an offset smoke chamber attached. It is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. The grill sits low in front and doubles as a firebox for the smoke chamber which is spliced on above and behind so it can work like a horizontal offset smoker only better. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

        Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker

        Griddle And Deep Fryer All In One

        The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, and home fries. Or pancakes, fajitas, grilled cheese, you name it. Why stink up the house deep frying and spatter all over? Do your fried chicken and calamari outside. Blackstone's Rangetop Combo With Deep Fryer does it all. Plus it has a built in cutting board, garbage bag holder, and paper towel holder. An additional work table on the left side provides plenty of counter space.
