My husband loves to use "his" mandoline. Lol, I buzz sauces, and he slices.

Do you have a favorite tool or gadget that just makes you smile and brings you joy when you use it?

Dear Chilichip:

My DH calls me a gadget freak! Admittedly, I've got a lot. Indeed, I guess I am a gadget freak, I must have a "kizillion" (that ain't no word) spatulas and I have specialized uses for each one. I even have have a stiff long handled spatula for stirring peanut butter and reaming out the corners of the jar. Again, by my DH's decree the immersion blender is my motorboat buzzer. It's fun to use and soooo handy.

I love my salt and pepper mills by Stonewall Kitchen that a friend got from here. I'm thinking of getting another set. :)

I can't cook without a mixer, a processor, a blender and a very sharp cleaver. They have to be my favourite.

Immersion blender for sure...a close second was my pasta machine, but I don't use it too much now. My soup pot has taken over 2nd place now -- it's beautiful

So many choices! How can you people narrow it to one? I love my microplane (I have just one marigene ) because of the fine shreds it gives me, and enjoy coffee made in our Cuisinart Grind-and-Brew. I have all kinds of "Mom Memory" items I use because it makes me feel close to her - I especially like her old wooden salad bowl. I think the best thing I have in the kitchen is my 17" flat-screen TV - haven't lost a fingertip yet! But the best of the best is my NordicWare non-stick scone pan. DH loved scones from the first time he tried them when we moved to MA. Took me years to attempt, bought this spiffy looking pan, and they come out better than any we have tried from anywhere! I know it's not me, but the pan.
