My cooking companion just went to a local thrift store looking for copper pots. Instead brought back a Welbilt bread machine. It looked brand new, tried it out and it seems to work perfectly. Total cost $3.67. Manual was available on the internet

I have one of those chicken roasters that was a gift when I bought a George Foreman grill.

I haven't used it in a while, but it works really well and makes a good chicken.

There is a recipe book that comes with it. Have you looked online to see if you can download it?

I sure am!!!

My latest thing was not something I was actually looking for but rather something I came across quite by accident. It's the George Foreman mini roaster GV5. Here it is on Amazon: Amazon.com: George Foreman GV5 Contact Cooker: Home & Garden I didn't know what it was when I first saw it but it was brand new (not in a box) and so I went home and looked it up on Amazon. The reviews are fantastic but the device is no longer made. I ran back to the thrift store and bought it for $8. I have just made a roast chicken in it and it's awesome!!! We are only a family of three and we don't require huge meals so this little device is perfect. I try not to heat up my kitchen in the summer by using my oven so I think this is going to work out great.

My holy grail of thrift store shopping is going to be a Vita Mix. I doubt I will ever find one but I am always hoping.

Actually, this appliance has been availible for a while. It comes in two different sizes.

I had thought about getting one, but I never did.
