Here Are My Favorite Kitchen Appliances And Gadgets!

By Carl Reid

I am addicted to buying things for my kitchen. Everything from high tech kitchen gadgets to simple accessories, I have to have them all. I do spend a lot of time in the kitchen and I do plenty of cooking, so they do get used. Lucky for me, I have a large kitchen with a good work top area and lots of cupboards. If I was on a deserted island without any kitchen gadgets, I would probably struggle. It's not that I'm spoiled, I just really love using them.

My kitchen is crammed with the things that I've treated myself to and I also receive kitchen gadgets as gifts. It drives my husband mad! There are basic fundamentals that I update every so often, such as the food processor and deep fryer. Now, I'm not saying that an Elite ice cream maker is essential but it is fun, as is the yogurt maker. I love my bread maker. I can put the mixture in at bedtime and wake up to the wonderful smell of freshly baked bread. The only down side is that I put on weight because the bread is so tasty. The rice cooker is very useful too, no more sticky lumps of goo.

I like to cook dishes from around the world so my kitchen gadgets reflect that I have a pasta maker and parmesan cheese shaver. I also like Chinese food so I have a non stick wok with all the accessories and a bamboo steamer for fish and vegetables. Indian food is another of my favorites and I have a set of Balti cooking pans and bowls. Not all kitchen gadgets are the result of modern technology. One of my treasured possessions is my granite pestle and mortar. It's very efficient for crushing herbs and spices for my curries and I think it's just about unbreakable.

My Keurig B70 platinum coffee maker saves me in the mornings. That's one of the things I'd rescue from the house if there was a fire. I insist on the best, sharp kitchen knives and I have an electric knife sharpener. My knives sit in a knife block, including the large meat cleaver. I also have a knife with an extra thin blade for slicing salmon and ham. My other kitchen gadgets include a fruit and vegetable slicer, a juicer and a salad spinner.

My friends grew out of the 1970s phase for fondue sets, but I still like them and I have a cast iron model. I also like to make jam from the plums and blackberries that come directly from my home garden. I even have the pan, thermometer and muslin strainer. You can't beat an egg timer for making perfect eggs. The most useful of the kitchen gadgets I have is the bookshelf that holds all my recipe books!
