Mark's picks:

Electrohome Retro Hi-Fi Stereo System
My kids want to experience vinyl. This record player will let them have that experience, plus the player has USB audio, CD and MP3 CD, aux input, a radio, remote control, and it will let you rip vinyl to MP3.

Plus, Spike Priggen's excellent Pop-Psych, Garage & Freakbeat playlist on Spotify.

Jason's pick:

Lodge Cast Iron Chicken Fryer & Lid
I've been using this affordable, cast iron pan to make amazing fried chicken for years. The recipe and process are important, but a good kitchen tool really helps!
