Wink Which Appliance Is or Was Your Best Investment?

Ok (opposite of Which appliance purchase was your worst mistake), which appliance was, is now, or do you think would be your best investment, should you decide to buy it?

Which appliance has done well by you, and would you purchase that same make and model again if you had to buy it once more? Come here and tell us about it.

Mine are;

1. My K'Aid Pearl Metallic food processor.

2. My two K'Aid Stand Mixers.

3. My Electrolux Assistant Stand Mixer.

4. My Waring Pro food grinder.

5. My Zojiroushi bread machine.

6. My Zojiroushi Microm rice cooker.

7. My Rivak Slow Cooker, BBQ Pit and my FlavoreWave Convection Oven.

What are yours? Let us know.

For the DW, it wuld have to be the KA stand mixer.

For me....I'd say my grills. But, my built-in butcher block cutting board is the most used and cared for.

I`m not one for appliances really, as long as I have Fire and pots etc...
I have plenty, but rarely use them.

so it would have to be my Gas hob/oven and Fridge freezer, those are use Daily, as is the Kettle and coffee grinder.

Did I misread this? I thought the OP was asking for your BEST investment. That question seems to dictate listing one item.

I have a GE food processer that is over 30 years old. It's heavy as lead and makes a heck of a racket, but it's still going strong!
