Hands down, it's my apple slicer/corer. Great for slicing an apple for a small child's lunch, and for cutting up apples for an apple pie. I just bought a new one a few months ago after my first one self-destructed after almost twenty years of continous use. Papmered Chef wants $11.95 for one, and Le Gourmet Chef sells them for $2.99!

I feel like the only person that doesn't love kitchen gadgets.... I have my favorite chef's knife, my wooden spatula, and I really don't use many utensils past that....

Maybe my pasta strainer? I'd have to say that's the one I use the most. Or maybe the cheese slicer.

I love those! I have one and it makes life so much easier. I eat a lot of apples and having them instantly sliced and cored is so handy. It's hard to have an excuse for not getting enough fruit and veg with gadgets like that!

I'd say one of my favourites (aside from the aforementioned apple corer/slicer) would be my immersion blender. It makes pureeing soup so easy and prevents the huge mess of transferring hot soup to a blender and so forth. It's also good for mashed potatos, whipping egg whites and cream.
