Just when I think I have all the little appliance gadgets I need.........wait a minute........I DO have all the appliance gadgets I NEED, it's more about WANT. Anyway, these are the toys that make my kitchen more fun:
KitchenAid 5-Quart Mixer
I love this mixer. No more tired arms from mixing stiff cookie dough and kneading bread dough is a cinch.
Zojirushi 5 1/2-Cup Neuro Fuzzy Rice Cooker
Love this appliance! I use it to cook rice, oatmeal and polenta. Search my blog for "rice cooker" to find more posts about using this handy appliance.
Cuisinart 11-Cup Food Processor
KitchenAid 5-Speed Blender
Cuisinart Hand Blender
I have the corded version of this stick blender. It's very handy for pureeing soups without having to transfer hot liquids to the blender and back. I also use it to puree my marinara sauce and for making apple butter.
Cuisinart Waffle Maker
Cuisinart 1 1/2-Quart Ice Cream Maker
This is a very handy little appliance. You can use it as a griddle to make pancakes, as a grill to grill meat or as a panini-maker. Check out these links to see recipes I've made with my Griddler:
whole grain pancakes, cheesesteak panini, caprese panini, grilled chicken panini, basic pancakes
