So now can you answer the question?

Which is your best investment?

Haha!!

Make that 14 now with the stuff I just listed.

Andy, I'd have to say that the food processor and ice cream machine are my best investments.

I could list a ton of things, much like Corey. But, if you're talking return on the dollar for performance, I'd have to say our Jenn-Air dishwasher we purchased at our local Salvation Army thrift store many moons ago.

Paid $15 for it and learned by calling the company and giving them the serial number that it had been a floor model in an appliance store. We could tell it had been used little or not at all by the way the underside and back looked. The inside was spotless.

Turns out the appliance store donated it because it was an outdated model and has plenty of whistles and bells. We didn't care how it got to the thrift store. It's wonderful and performs like a champ.

That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

Of items that I actually purchased myself (that did not come with the purchase of my house) i would say my Foodsaver.

My fridge/freezer would be at the top of the list if we are just listing things you would not want to live without.

Corey, you don't have very many appliances, do you?

Beyond a doubt the Sunpentown Ice maker! It's been on making ice 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, for 3 years now - amazing machine! The coffee roaster and burr grinder come in 2nd. The Krups citrus juicer rates a solid 3rd, tied with the foodsaver.

I adore all my "toys" but those are the best of the bunch.

too soon to tell really, but my Wolf dual fuel range has done all I have asked and expected of it. But maybe it's the Faber ventilation that clears all the smoke and steam I generate with Wolfy so the alarms don't go off.

Haha!! So many that I shouldn't have to buy one for a long time to come!

Yeah Harborwitch, I agree with you!!

It is truly something to behold!! Plus it keeps you from ever having to buy ice, which can be ridiculously expensive!

I just used mine the other day to replenish and re-up the ice that was all used up. It's great to have, because you can make tons of ice and store it in the freezer so that you'll have plenty of ice on hand for whatever come what may!!
