Bribe the lab with a French fry when you sneak one for yourself.

FrankZ, fortunately, we have a towel truce in this house and the kitties just don't care.

Wow, a big response. I didn't realise there was such a love for kitchen gadgets.

I suspect more than a few members here have a thing for kitchen gadgets, no matter how trivial.

I think we all have some utensil that we can't live without. When I worked fast food, I was highly dependent on the kitchen scraper we had, to quickly clean all the stainless steel kitchen equipment with. If that was lost, progress slowed down quite a bit. (That's why I am a software engineer now. )

I forgot to mention my collection of small glass and stainless bowls I use for prepping. I measure everything out beforehand when working a recipe.

assorted wooden spoons, four or five heat resistant spatulas. three different sizes glass measuring cups. i use a lot of not sticks pots and pans so don't have many things that can't be used with them.
