Costco employee here, used to work both in the Deli and in the Meat department. We sterilize literally the entire room and all it's equipment every single night, we have Standard Sanitary Procedure Operation checklists (high standard to the company, not just industry standard) that the person(s) cleaning up after close have to run down and perform and are inspected every single night by a manager and approved for you to be able to go home. You get punished for leaving without doing this.
Every surface of a Costco's meat department is pressure washed with a soap substance and then rinsed every night. This shit is fucking real, it's not easy. We take it very seriously.
>>7323067 mechanically tenderized meat must be cooked to 145
it doesn't matter how clean your room and equipment is, unless you clean the tenderizer after EVERY SINGLE USE the chance of contamination is there, and it must be cooked to 145 (medium) to be safe to eat
Perishables: Potatos RICE DRY BEANS Olive oil Rotisserie Chickens Canned tomato sauce(if you use canned) Pet food(Made to the same standards as Blue Buffalo in former Blue Buffalo factory) Whole coffe beans(Grind yourself or use the grinder there) EGGS
Everything else: Toilet paper Wet ass wipes Water cases Clothing Furniture Mattresses(If it sucks or breaks within 10 years, you should be able to take it back) GAS
I thought about getting a Costco membership. I decided not to when I saw they carry the same brand of frozen meats (Kirkland) as ALDI. Why the fuck would I want to PAY for a membership to buy food at a higher price than I could already just get at ALDI?
>>7324808 I usually keep at least a couple bags from the asian market around because i can get all veggie or tasty shrimp and pork ones, but what i like about the Costco Ling Ling ones is that the wrapping is thicker and more resiliant, so they NEVER bust open when you cook them, even if you over boil them. I usually cook them on the stove in a pan with a little bit of water and sesame oil, then turn it up to high at the end and flip them for the crisp. They come in a FOUR AND A HALF POUND bag for 10(ish) bucks also. I don't know, there are none from the asian market that taste quite as good as these to me either. If you are a fan of chinese american food you'll never want any other dumpling again.
my local (brooklyn) costco used to have really amazing ground bison, it made great burgers. I haven't seen any in almost a year. Thier cheese section is also significantly larger and better than a few other costcos ive been to. they also have that buffalo mozzarella swimming in water in individual plastic bags. I love that stuff. they have decent prosciutto as well, but the local delis are better for that.
>>7323040 the issue isn't about the jaccard being dirty it's the existing bacteria on the surface of the meat, if its left solid piece of meat you can sear it and it will be immaculate but you go poking holes you're inoculating the cut of meat.

Costco has a limited variety sure, but for the most part it's all good shit They have a GOD TIER refund policy. I don't even need my receipt to return some thing I bought 8 months ago. That alone helps out if you want to refund a bad/broken purchase or just own something temporarily.
I just wish their attached liquor store had more variety. Get some Kraken, Costco.
>>7328052 I'm more than willing to $55 a year just to avoid the spics & niggers that shop at Walmart. I literally get dragged to Walmart once a year by the wife & 10 out of 10 times some spic cunt is fighting with a nigger at the check out.
>>7325203 When my 2 friends and I were in Europe, we were 18-19 years old and one of them had brought a full bag of this on the trip. We were so bad at fending for ourselves at this point that one night it was like 10pm and we decided not to leave the hotel room even though we were all starving. We each pretty much ate a complete meal from that trail mix that night.

Essentially I buy most of my nonperishable goods there.
>Rotisserie Chickens >Yes they have a chicken schedule >meats >flour, sugar, yeast >rice and beans (srsly just got 40 lbs of rice for .45/lb) >milk >cheeses >processed meats like chicken tendies and sausages >veggies, both fridged and dry store like potatoes and onions >quantity booze for cheap >cooking oils >animals feeds >engine oils >batteries >shit tickets and paper towels >gasoline >polish dogs from foodcourt I usually only get essentials like this b/c i am oldskool costco and they have phased out so many products that i love it's not even funny
I really been thinking about doing that executive thing, i think with my gas purchases it would be worth it, but also eating $55 a year is worth bulk commodities for cheap to me.
