Top 5 Products You Only Need to Buy Once
Welcome to GetMojo, we do the research so you don’t have to! In this video, we’re offering our picks for the 5 best products you only need to buy once.
We expect to buy certain items multiple times in our lives, but some things - if chosen correctly - can last forever. And let’s be honest, accumulating such products comes with a nice amount of satisfaction. So, if you’re in the market for long-serving purchases, where should you start? Well, we’ve sifted through numerous website and consumer reviews to present our 5 recommended products. Okay, first up.
Leatherman Wingman Multitool
We’ve probably all got a multi-tool somewhere in the house, but Leatherman multitools are a cut above the rest. These things are built to last a lifetime - and Leatherman offers a 25-year warranty to reflect that. The Wingman is one of the most popular sellers, because it offers 14 different gadgets in one, and is very affordable. The Wingman packs pliers, a knife, screwdrivers, scissors, a bottle opener and more into one compact, rock-solid package.
Travelpro Platinum Elite-Softside Carry-On Luggage
If you’re a frequent traveler you can easily find yourself going through multiple rucksacks and duffle bags before long, and it soon adds up. This expandable suitcase from Travelpro ensures that you only need to make one purchase when it comes to your carry-on luggage. Available in numerous colors, this soft-sided suitcase comes with spinning wheels and a retractable handle for easy maneuverability. It also has numerous clever storage solutions for all your travel needs. Travelpro throws in a nifty warranty too that covers you against any damages caused by airlines or other carriers.
Lodge Pre-Seasoned Cast Iron 12-Inch Skillet
Many of us will have already been through multiple pots and pans sets claiming to be hard-wearing and invincible, when in practice, they’re really not. Well, save yourself a bunch of hassle and buy this Lodge skillet. This cast iron skillet comes pre-seasoned with natural vegetable oil and even includes a silicone hand grip for convenience. This skillet can be used in the oven, on the stove, on the grill or over a campfire - and probably as a weapon on the frontline if need be. It’s accumulated over 65,000 consumer reviews on Amazon, 80% of which are 5 stars.
Davek Solo Umbrella
We know, saying any umbrella is a one-time purchase is gutsy, right! Well, just wait until you’ve checked out Davek’s range of tough, long-lasting models. This compact, travel-friendly Solo umbrella is built from high-grade steel, fiberglass, zinc alloy and aluminum, providing a sturdy, yet flexible frame. This thing also looks super high-end - and, for any warranty card hunters out there, you can register your Davek umbrella online after purchase and make the most of its lifetime guarantee.
Before we reveal our final pick, here are a few other great long-lasting products for you to consider:
DEWALT 168-Piece Mechanics Tools Kit and Socket Set
KONG Extreme Dog Pet Toy Dental Chew
Thermos Stainless King 40-Ounce Beverage Bottle
You know a brand's name is worth investing in when it becomes ubiquitous with the type of product it’s associated with - like Thermos. Famous for its large travel mugs, this 40-ounce model is perhaps its most iconic, capable of keeping liquids hot, or cold, for up to 24-hours. It’s great for storing various food types too. This vacuum-sealed container is built from durable stainless steel, and even incorporates a serving cup into its lid. You can also choose from a variety of classic colors.
So which of these long-lasting products should you buy? Well, something is only worth owning forever if you’re actually going to use it. If you’re not a big traveler for example, then a carry-on suitcase is unlikely to get used. However, something like a multitool is a great purchase, as pretty much everyone is going to need tools at hand for odd jobs from time to time.
