Last week we asked the same question to a variety of people in an informal survey … What item(s) can’t you live without in your kitchens? … We proposed the question to followers on Facebook & Twitter to showroom clients and personal friends. The answers ranged from knives to wives. Yes, someone on Facebook said he couldn’t live without his wife in the kitchen – so SWEET! Someone else emailed that he can’t live without the mess. Maybe he misunderstood the question, or he just likes a messy kitchen. Several of you can’t live without your KitchenAid mixers, and some of you have suggested some very cool kitchen gadgets below that I may now have to add to my own kitchen collection. So here you have it — your top 24 Favorite Kitchen Gadgets:
By the way, if you wish to add any of these to your kitchen. (See resource list below). I am thinking about those Viking nonstick frying pans (Item #22). A friend and reader from Albany, NY raved about those pans. That one is tempting since I typically lose half my eggs on my all-stainless fry pans. I love my immersion blender for soups — a life changer (Item #10). My favorites (I added these to the list) are #9 – InSinkerator Instant Hot & Cold (We have this unit plumbed to our kitchen sink, which brings bottled water from the basement up to the first floor the kitchen sink), #13 Norpro Tongs (Great for salad and serving just about anything) and #16 – my Pampered Chef chopper (I use this almost every day) OXO also makes a great one. Do you use any of these items? Which kitchen gadget or appliance do you like the best? We’d love to know. Feel free to email us.
