I don't think I bought my first Addis intentionally either. I imagine they just happened to be the size I needed. Since I didn't have the package, I didn't know what kind they were until I ordered some others just for the size. When I saw they were the same as the ones I loved, I made a point to notice and I never went back. I still have others I use out of necessity, but someday. . . .
