Hello, Southern Dad, and welcome to DC. The newest toy I have for the kitchen is my Ninja Kitchen System that I got for an early Christmas last year.

I have the Ninja Mega Kitchen System 1500. Not long after I bought it, I see they came out with the 1800 watt upgrade. Mine isn't getting the workout that it deserves because I also have a bullet type that I use for making my bulletproof coffee.

I love toys. I love cooking. Put the two together. I like cooking with a cord. The kids just roll their eyes when they see the results of my cooking and plating. They sure don't seem to complain as they are eating it.

I think the collections of toys are a part of most any type of hobby, regardless. Problem is having multiple hobbies....

Mine is the one that you can use as a slow cooker, oven, or like a regular burner on the stove to cook things in. I don't have any of the blender type Ninja products - YET!

I love our induction burners. They allow control of heat within 5 degrees and can sear at 575, plus they don't heat up the kitchen like conventional stovetops. They are fast heating and cool down fast when you lower the heat. I've even been considering trying a homemade sous vide set-up since our immersion blender has varying speeds and the induction burners provide such a steady temp just to see if we like that technique before buying an anova or something similar.

A new toy to look into, thanks.

We have a single induction burner. We use it for cooking on the island when we do not want to tie up the stove.

We only use the stovetop now when we need to use 1 of the non-magnetic pans.
