I Love gadgets. I can spend hours in William and Sanoma, or Crate and Barrel,etc. But I love gadgets. I have to say that I love my Tupperware Potato Peeler the best. I have had 100 peelers but this one is the best I have ever seen. I use it 2-3 times a week and it's just as sharp now as it was 4 years ago when I bought it. I Love my Kitchen aid Food Processor too, it sits out on my counter and I use it a lot ! I hate chopping and grating, I am forever grating my fingers, LOL. So what gadget makes your kitchen task a little more fun or easier?

"Sigh"....Everyone is mentioning their fancy gadgets (and yes, I'm jealous. LOL). But mine is very very simple. I cannot live without my little electric can opener. I absolutely hate using the manual ones because I always get a cramp in my hand.

Kat- that is a given! I do't blame ya. We have one of the manual ones in the motorhome and I hate it!. I am forever getting the can half open and then tilting it wrong and spilling it! Grrrrrrrrrrrrr so frustrating. SO yes let's hear it for the Electric can Openers!!! Good one...

My bread maker... theres nothing like the smell of fresh bread in the kitchen. I would be lost without it.

your right about that. We have run ours a lot lately because it's been so cold. Warm meal and warm bread, not much better than that, I agree.

Must I just pick one ? :) Lets see.......something I use every single day are my Cutco Knives. Far from cheap, but GREAT knives, I recommend them if you can afford them. I also love my vegetable steamer, my pampered chef measuring cups, my stainless steel measuring spoons, my pampered chef mix and stir pitcher.... oh wait....ONE gadget LOL

I am so in love with my Apple Peeler Corer Slicer from Pampered Chef. What a blessing that is when all the apples are picked and I have to freeze them. I also love my Cuisinart Stick Blender it is amazing. It has an attachment and small cup that even turns it into a mini food processor. Those are my 2 favorites.

Oh Yeah!!! I have that too! That is a fantastic gadget! I LOVE Pampered Chef, I could own 2 of everything they make. I will have to get that out, I just bought some great FUJI apples.. Thanks for reminding me. I need a gadget closet... not a drawer... it's just not working for me.

I love my durabrand blender. It is walmart special but it does everything I need it too. I make a lot of smoothies. My blender is my buddy.

Oh Yummy- that's gotta make your day!. Got any Smoothie recipes to share? My hubby bought me a "Smoothie maker" 2 Christmas's ago and I admit I have not even taken it out of the box! Maybe I need to learn a couple of recipes and do that for this summer? I am sure they are wonderful, I lov e Jama Juice, and Juice it up etc. Some "Smoothie Chain" places. So maybe I need to give it a try. Thanks for the idea.

I LOVE the tupperware potatoe peeler. It's the best. Mine is getting old and I will have to order a new one soon. I also like some of the stuff from pampered chef. They have one thing (don't remember the name) used to open the plastic on boxes - love it. It has a magnet so you just stick it on the fridge and it's there when you need it.

My bottle and top opener. It saves me from trying to open them in a door (If anyone know what I mean by that) LOL Nearly forgot my electric can opener.
