My Rabbit (I love wine), my wusthof knives, my hand blender, and my kitchen aid, last but definitely not least, my dishwasher (I went without in Italy and since have a true appreciation for its convenience).

I got a new slicer from Walmart recently (like a mandolin) for $10. It makes thin or thick slices, thin or thick jullienne. It's great!

I couldn't live without a pair of kitchen shears in my kitchen.

I think I could cook everything in my Lodge 10" CI skillet and my Le Creuset dutch oven. Oh, and my big stock pot.

I am a big tea drinker so my Tetsubin.

I think I have a Cast Iron problem.

Favorite New Tool/Rosle Garlic Press

Has anyone else tried the Rosle garlic press? I haven't used a garlic press in years, as a lot of kitchen wisdom says they pulverize the garlic and make its flavor overpowering. But recently, in Grace Young's "Stir-Frying to the Sky's Edge," I read that this particular tool -- very sturdy -- does the job quickly, easily, and beautifully, even if you haven't peeled the cloves. It's worked great for me, with no waste. And the gadget is very easy to clean.

Note: Not a cheap device (about $37 at Williams Sonoma, where I accidentally found myself), but for someone who uses lots of garlic, it's worth the money.

New Tool/Kyocera Ceramic Santoku and Paring Knife

Read about these recently and bought the mini santoku and paring knife. Sharpest knives I have ever used, making working with vegetables much easier.

I finally tried to chop my finger off with my Henckles Pro S Santoku. Didn't even notice until there was blood on the cutting board and onion juice in the wound.

Oh yeah, but I was getting worried, new knives and I hadn't managed to injure myself with them for almost 6 months. At least they are sharp!

Yes, it is much more difficult to saw off a finger with a dull knife. I have a funny feeling that wasn't your original intent! Oh well, now you and Shrek are truly blood relatives! (or did you lose the onions?)
