Smile What should I ask for?

Im going to ask for Kitchen Appliances for Christmas this year. I was wondering what are some good things to get? I love to bake but also love to just cook too.

And if you have some personal experience with bad brands let me know. Good brands? And one more thing, were not made of money.

I just got a pannini press and I really love it. I can't remember the brand though. I really love a warm sandwich and a bowl of soup in the winter. Yum.

I'm at that point of needing a couple new knives.

Been married 30+ years (but didn't cook for the past 10) and all my stuff is OLD. Some is really good stuff but some is just plain old and needs to be replaced.

I'm using my food processor a lot these days to chop and slice veggies, and my breadmaker still fascinates me.

I have a Jennaire cooktop with the grill and griddle units, if I didn't have the indoor grill I would have to have a big George Foreman to do grilled chicken. I just cook for me and the hubby.

A good stand mixer for making cakes, cookies and bread. Lots of them on sale now. I love my KitchenAid! If you bake a lot, a nice nut chopper or nut grinder is useful. I'll repeat "Good Kitchen Knives."

Not many of us are made of money, but it's a proven fact that if you buy quality, that you will have it for many years to come.

I really do need some knives, and an electric mixer. Ours broke last week, it was tragic. However Ive heard Kitchen Aid's are horribly expensive


What is a food saver?

I dont like sandwiches usually. I only eat them some times, so it wouldnt be used often.
