Geez, where to start...

I have some All-Clad and Caphalon pans, which I dearly love. I also have three Lodge brand Cast Iron skillets, which I baby. I have some half-way decent knives, Chicago Cutlery, which is made by Dexter-Russel, probably one of the best domestic knife brands, IMHO. I just bought an electric griddle this past winter, which comes in handy when I need to make a tall stack of pancakes for all the kids, or a mess of grilled cheese sandwiches. I can use it to make a lot of other sandwiches, quesadillas, etc. I also bought a countertop deep fryer, and let me tell you, my kids love my fried chicken! I used to have an emersion blender (what Emeril calls his "Boat motor). It developed a crack in the housing at the blending end, and there was no way to keep it sanitary, so I had to chuck it. I desperately want a new one. I have a KitchenAid 5 qt stand mixer, which I like to use.

I have a lot of "gadgets" that I don't really use that much. When I moved to MI, I got rid of A LOT of my "gadgets", but still have quite a few.

Now, for work, I have a set of German knives that I baby. They serve me well. I have some other tools, like measuring spoons, meat tenderizer, and some Garde Manger tools that I sometimes use, but mostly, my French knife, paring knife, serrated bread knife, steel, and my peeler are what gets used a lot.

Two things:

Henkels knives and a knife that was made for me by a man I met while travelling in Japan.

And espresso machine, which I brought with me from Italy. That and dozens of bags of Kimbo.

My Hobart N-50 mixer, Sabatier carbon steel knives, Le Creuset cookware, Robot Coupe RN food processor, butcher block table, and my marble pastry counter are my favorite.

I sacrificed big time to buy them, and I cherish every piece [even though I bought most of it used].

a pair of long chopsticks - use it for everything from cooking pancakes to beating eggs to mixing together a cake mix to cooking pasta
