I have a few favorites like my natural color 10" maple wood pepper mill, allclad 2 qt saucepan as appliances go I would say my kitchenaid stand mixer tilt head. My favorite things to make is pizza dough, cookies.
My onion dicer. It works well on peppers, cucumber, garlic, any soft but crisp vegetable. It's great for making salsa because everything comes out small diced (about 1/8" x 1/8").
The hand blender is also pretty useful and so are the small cheese graters.

There is nothing greater than a food processor. Mostly because I'm lazy but also because I absolutely love hummus. Seriously, I could eat the stuff by the spoonful if it didn't get so many funny looks on the subway.
