As silly as it sounds, my best appliance investment was/is a $15 electric skillet from KMart. Bought when the apartment I was renting only had a gas oven (which I refused to use) and I had the urge to make eggs. Two years later, I have used it for so much more and so often. Paid for itself within the first month.

And what is a Foodsaver that everykeeps mentioning?

I own a 13-inch Rival electric skillet, which I've had for 13 years, that I bought from Service Merchandise when they were around!

I hardly ever use it, but it's nice to know that when I do, it's there. And yes, I HAVE used it to make breakfast items, such as pancakes, bacon, saussages and French toast.

Well, I own an old Robot Coupe food processor, which I plan to donate to charity or anyone who wants it, and an old Cuisinart stick blender, which I plan to do the same thing with.

These were replaced with much more modern and heavy duty powerful units.

I also have an old Rival Slow Cooker, which I plan to keep, since it still works like new. Oh. I also have an electric grain mill and an electric egg poacher - both of which I haven't used yet.

And a Presto Options Multi-Cooker. And also, I can't forget my George Foreman grill! And my American Harvest dehydrator. Haha!!

Even after adding all that stuff, I STILL forgot two of my other great investments - my Zojiroushi Bread Machine and my Zojiroushi Microm Rice Cooker. Haha!!

I knew that would get your attention! Haha!!

But I think that's everything now. Unless I think of something later.

Oh yes, what about the Betty Crocker blender? Also the Hershey Chocolate Fondue which looks like a giant chocolate Hershey kiss! Haha!!

Ooooh, this is a hard one. 6 months ago I would have said my commercial Bunn coffee grinder (a steal off of ebay) but that was because I'm such a bad cook and coffee was the only thing I could consistently make well. But I recently renovated my kitchen and got a "new" Five Star commercial-type gas range off of Craig's list and wow, I am astounded with it! This could be because my previous stove was a 40 year old monster I inherited with the house that I now know was way off temperature wise and the burners had to be lit with a match. Probably ANY other stove would have seemed fantastic but this one has cool stuff I don't even know what to do with yet. ****, I feel spoiled just turning on a burner without catching my hair on fire!

My Rival Electric knife and my Kenmore Electric Slicer.

OK, Corey. Finish it off.

Give us the rest of the list now. No piece by piece posts.
