You Get What You Pay For

It's a pretty simple theory. If you pay more for a product or service, the product is... well better.

Take my little Weber grill.

I bought this grill a long time ago. I can't even remember when. It must have been at least ten years ago. And I know I haven't used the thing since 2006 or so. Today, I pulled it out from cold storage, dusted it off and it started right up. On the first click of the self starter. Which is a good thing, because my little Weber is an important guest to a cookout scheduled for tomorrow.

Why is it not a surprise that the grill has withstood the test of time? It's a Weber. A good brand. And the darn thing wasn't cheap.
