    My favorite thing isn’t exactly a gadget as much as it is an appliance, but my favorite thing is my Keurig.

  2. Amanda234 says:

    Also I’m subscribed to your RSS

  3. leslie says:

    I loooove my iKea graters! It’s a tupperware bowl with a grater lid so when you grate cheese, it falls right into the container. And if you have leftover, you can just put a lid right on it. Absolutely fantastic!

  4. Chris says:

    My favorite and most frequently used kitchen gadget? Probably my kitchen tongs. I use them for everything – they’re just so much easier to use sometimes.

  5. Jackie says:

    Probably just my cheese grater….I love grating my own cheese, I’ll never buy the packaged stuff again!

  6. Chris says:

    Oh, and I’m already subscribed to your RSS feed – that’s how I found out about your contest :-)

    (And my 2nd favorite kitchen gadget is probably my 1 c. food processor I bought for less than $20 at Wally World many, many years ago.)

  7. My little tablespoon scooper that I portion out cookie dough with onto my amazing silpat mats! :-D

  8. my favorite gadget is my pastry cutter! i totally thought it was not an essential in the kitchen but ever since i got one… well, my pie crusts are so much better!

  19. Chinyere says:

    Would I be a nerd to say my favorite kitchen gadgets are God-made? My hands…these are the best tools and can perform a number of important tasts; squishing, pounding, you name it!

    Ok, ok, if that does not work, then I’d have to say my Kitchen Aid mixer. I’m a baker and can’t imagine using anything else. : )

  20. Amanda says:

    My favorite gadget… hmm. I do like my food processor a lot!

  21. Amanda says:

  24. Amanda says:

  34. Carly says:

    A small wooden spoon. I use it constantly.

  35. Anna says:

    I can’t imagine not having my KitchenAid mixer! Hands-down my favorite kitchen gadget.

  36. aimee says:

    If my KitchenAid mixer counts as a gadget then for sure I would say that. Otherwise, a good set of spatulas are great to have!

  37. I couldn’t operate my kitchen without 900 rubber spatulas!

  38. Maryclare says:

    My favorite kitchen gadget is my knife. I would be lost without it.

  39. Maryclare says:

    I liked you on facebook.

  43. My microplane grater is my favorite. Perfect for hints of parmesan, zest and nutmeg.

  44. Andrea says:

    Yay! sounds great. I love your picture, too!

  45. Anne says:

    My favorite might be my instant read thermometer – essential for meat so I don’t overcook it but I also use it for making sure liquid is at the right temperature for recipes (especially bread recipes!). That baby is worth its weight in gold.

  46. Andrea says:

    I like you on Facebook!

  47. Andrea says:

    Annndddd I just subscribed via email!

  48. Andrea says:

    Please, don’t take into account my FIRST comment. I didn’t read closely enough, so I didn’t tell you my favorite gadget. Here ’tis:
    It is….a pampered chef chopper. I chop so much!

  49. MplsCathy says:

    I’d have to say my silicone flat whisk. I searched for a long time before I found it, and it was totally worth the wait. The special shape allows you to really get in all the areas of a pan like the edges and sides (that can be tricky for a normal whisk to do), great for roux and gravy and stuff where lumps can be a real bummer. And the silicone makes it safe to use on all finishes, especially the enameled cast iron which gets a lot of use in our kitchen.

  50. MplsCathy says:

    I just subscribed by email – yay!!

  51. Rachel says:

    immersion blender!!

  52. Probably our garlic press… I put garlic in almost everything. :-)

  53. I subscribe to your RSS!

  54. Nupur says:

    My favorite is my immersion blender- I use it on an almost daily basis.

    Thanks for the giveaway!

    And I “liked” you on facebook, too.

  60. heather says:

    If I could choose anything, it’d be the 13″ x 2 3/4″ Mediterranean terra cotta glazed roaster. Beautiful color and amazing quality of product.



  61. heather says:

    I already follow you on Twitter, “liked” on Facebook.

  62. heather says:

    Ahh, I did not follow the rules. My favorite kitchen utensil is my wooden Julia Child spoon. I’ve had it since I was a little girl — a child-sized spoon with the word “Julia” etched into the handle. I use it *only* for baking. My one weird kitchen quirk.

    Cheers again,


  63. Angie Arthur says:

    I love my cookie scoop! Makes it so easy (and neat) to make uniform-sized cookies.

  64. Terri says:

    I would use the certificate towards one the Mediterranean Terracotta Glazed Roasters

  65. D. Hayes says:

    My micro plane grater. I use it for zesting , grating ginger and garlic. Parm. comes out so fluffy and light and it makes expensive Parm Regi. go so much farther.

  70. sherry says:

    My favorite kitchen gadget is my mini food processor because I never have to chop onions again, hooray!

  71. Darcie says:

    I’d have to say that spatulas are one of my favorites. They’re always great for helping to get all of the batter out of the bowl when I’m baking. :)

  72. sherry says:

    I also subscribe to your RSS feed via Google Reader; just found your blog last week and fell in love with your recipes.

  73. Melanie says:

    Favorite kitchen gadget: it’s a tie between my garlic press and my box grater. They are both always in the sink to be washed so that must mean I use them a lot (either that or I’m a lazy dish washer but that can’t be it.)

  74. Shawna says:

    It’s a tough choice to make but, I love, love, love my KitchenAid standing mixer. If I didn’t have it, I wouldn’t have started making fresh bread for the past 6 months.
