What a great story!!! Thank you for sharing :) Believe or not: I still have a turkey baster my mom once bought... it´s about 45 years old now :) And of course I´ve got a drawer full of Tupperware too!!! It is also awesome, that the story of Brownie Wise came out of hiding AND that the amazing Sandra Bullock impersonates her :)

This was such a clever idea at the time but I think that OXO has really taken this concept and created great new ideas for current times.
