Most of us have gadgets upon gadgets that we use to supposedly help out. Sometimes the less gadgets we use the easier things are! I am a kitchen gadget person for sure, but then I get bored with a few and wind up giving them away. Right now, today, my favorite kitchen gadget is my electric rice cooker. Oh, I learned early on how to make rice the 'right' way on the stove but this electric one means I don't have to worry about it. It comes out perfect each time. It's not very big and doesn't take up a lot of space and it's very easy to clean. So, what's your current favorite gadget?

Right now, my favorite kitchen gadget is the ice cream maker, but soon the rice cooker will come back in favor, just waiting for cooler days.

We only made ice cream once this summer...maybe we should make another batch soon.

I am going to get me one. I do most of the cooking, now that I have retired. And can cook most anything. But, Rice just does not come out the same everytime. Drives me nuts.

If you follow the directions on the electric ones you'll have no problem. But - just as a warning, it doesn't come out light and fluffy - it is more like the texture of rice you get at oriental restaurants. I have overcome that by using more water then they call for.

What would be my favorite gadget if somebody bought it for me would be a rice cooker! Keep putting it on my wish list. Professional chefs use them. Why can't I have one?

Coffe makers sure do count. I've been using the rice cooker a lot recently so it popped into my head first.
