Love the Nuwave oven. And my electric Pressure cooker. I use both of them often.

I had the neatest Black & Decker hand mixer that ran on rechargeable batteries...I kept it beside the stove and used it about everyday....it had 4 attachments. The batteries died off and now the little mixer is gone, but not forgotten.

My food processor, once a dust gatherer, has become a trusted and much used appliance.

My old Sunbeam portable mixer. I have a new one now, not Sunbeam, but I haven't had the need to use it.

It feels good knowing it's there when I need it.

I don't use my mixer often, don't make desserts. But you are right It does feel good knowing it is there.

Glad we bought a Lodge 7" round grill press for $18 early last year. Helps fry burgers and steaks more quickly and evenly.
