I'd have to say my preferred tool in the kitchen is the medium size knife.

Skilletlicker - that's it! I also have a larger one for lemons, but you need big hands to make it work well...

Does a cork screw count as a gadget? I have one of those quick lever jobs.

I have got to nomiate 2 - they are a pair and without them nothing would ever get done in the kitchen; the coffee roaster and the burr grinder! No coffee no workee.

Of course the Automatic 4 Pug Floor Sweeper is pretty handy too - don't have to sweep quite as often.

first choice - dishwasher

Uncle Bob, that thing is called a reamer.

I'd have to say my Chinese cleaver is the best.

It makes quick work of onions, bell pepper, snow peas and celerys, especially for stir frying!

My supplier has a cleaver I've been eyeing up for some time. I love the idea, but I haven't ordered it yet because I'm not really sure how often I'd use it!

I'm not sure if I have the skill to use a cleaver! Sounds wonderful, and I've seen them used, but I would hate to part with one of my fingers.....
