my favourite gadget it my soda stream...I bought a new upto date one because we drink litres of sugar free soda's and lugging the 2litre bottles home from the supermarkets was making my back unbearable... now I just have sugar free squash and fizzy water :) much more environmentally friendly too

Kiera Vanella said...

My favorite gadget is my immersion blender. Perfect for making cream soups, whipping cream...I just love it!

Quilt Kitty said...

I have my mum's old hand eggbeater & still use it in preference to getting out the flash mixer. Maybe it's the washing up that puts me off but maybe its the good memories attached to the beater that makes it so fun to use. Thanks, lovely bunny quilt. Tracee xx

Mhairi said...

I love my KitchenAid mixer. It works like a charm and looks wonderful too and it coordinates so nicely with its friends the blender and food processor. They make my kitchen look good and they create some really yummy food together.

Gill said...

I love my Kenwood mixer though it's over 30 years old now!

LeAnne said...

The apple slicer is my favorite tool. I also just learned you can use it to slice potatoes for french fries.

My new potato masher is wonderful!!
It is rectangle instead of round; which can be odd, but it is sturdy,and cleans very easily...love it

I know; I need a life....lol

Janet said...

I love spatulas. I have a teflon one that I love but it is starting to fall apart and I haven't been able to find another like it yet. I also have tiny ones that fit through the smallest jar openings.

Carly said...

I love our crockpot! We use it at least 2x a week.

That quilt is so cute!

queenejeanne said...

I just used pampered chef egg slicer, where has it been all my life?

Tiffany said...

Cookie scoop - perfect cookies everytime :D

My favourite kitchen gadget was my wooden spoon as I did all my baking with it but now it is my big red Kitchen Aid which makes baking so much faster.

Sherry said...

This may sound funny but my favorite gadget is my hamburger chopper from pampered chef. You use it while browning hamburger and it chops is up small and quickly.

Tiffany said...

Honestly, my favorite kitchen gadget is probably my cheese slicer. I use it almost every day!

Gwen said...

I love my electric skillet! I use it for pancakes, fried chicken and pan fried potatoes. It makes the BEST fried chicken ever-- crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside!

Binks said...

Humph, let's see. I'd be lost without my kettle. I know alot of people that just boil their water in pots, but I just can't do it. I guess I'm in the routine of just loving the bellowing steam and humming whistle.

strandkorbtraum said...

I would say my hands but they probably don't count either. So my favourite gadget is my mill, I make my whole meal flour with it for bread (once a week) and I use it especially in winter to make fresh porridge, that is I roughly grind the oat, soemtimes I add some rice for the taste. So that's why I like it.
Thanks for the chance.

Susie Q said...

My favorite kitchen gadget is my Phillips electric whisk which I bought when my husband and I were first together in 1986 and is obviously now 26 years old and going strong. I use it for making cakes, puddings, whisking cream and all sorts and I could not do without it. Susie x

Njeri said...

I love my electric mixer. I remember the days before I bought it and every time i made a cake I would have arching arm creaming that butter! Not fun.

Carolyn H said...

I love my cookie sheet, it is perfect for baking, adding an extra counter, (pull out the silverware drawer and lay it across), use for cookie decorating, and move it off the table out of the way, put aluminum foil on it and use it as a broiler. It can cover a cake pan in a pinch. My perfect kitchen tool.

Dresden Quilter said...

My favourite is my apple slicer. Thanks for the giveaway.

Charlene S said...

Fleur de Lis Quilts said...

Hmmm, I love cooking so I have lots of gadgets. I guess I'd say the really CHEAP knives that I use every day. They are small (fit in my hand) and really sharp. When they get too worn or dull, toss away! At .50 I can pick up a couple easily while out shopping.

Such an adorable bunny! For the most part I try and STAY OUT OF THE KITCHEN, but my old trusty Oster blender is probably my favorite kitchen gadget since I can't choose the microwave. This blender is over 30 years old and still going strong! Gotta love that. :)

Mystica said...

My favourite kitchen gadget is the blender!

Cal said...

Many: The vegetable peeler, a good oxo one, peels anything, from kiwis to squash. Love it!

Silicone spatulas, awesome.
Silicone whisk, fantastic.

Mike and Jen said...

I would have to say that I love our vegetable peeler. It's nice to be able to have my son be able to use it to help me peel potatos for dinner.

BuzyStitches said...

My favorite thing in the kitchen would be my husband, he does all the cooking and he is a keeper, but if I have to pick a real item it would be the can opener, because I could help him by opening cans for him. LOL I totally have fallen in love with your bunny quilt. Thanks

Karen said...

I love my cookie scooper from William Sonoma-- makes it so easy to make cookies and muffins all the same size!

Bud and Marsha said...

Love your "printer friendly" feature. I will have to check out how to do that for my blog!
My favorite gadget is the Food Saver Bag system. I use it to save space by putting my project fabrics and patterns in them and sealing them. It sucks the air out and makes them SO much smaller. Oh, yeah, I use them to store food too. ;')

Melinda said...

My favorite is my Kitchen Main mixer - I use it regularly.

KOcanQuilt said...

My favorite gadget is my rice cooker. It helps me make perfect rice every time. That wallhanging is so cute, so thank you for the chance to win and make it!

Peggy @ Pastimes Quilt Design said...

As you can guess, I'm into vintage kitchen accessories:)

Jody said...

My favorite kitchen tool is my espresso machine--I don't do mornings and would never start functioning without my Americano! I have gotten used to doing without all the space it takes up.

Kathy MacKie said...

I love my Wustof serrated tomato knife and I must confess-I have two of them!

Susan said...

I absolutely love your bunny wall hanging! My favorite kitchen gadget is my little Moulinex (mini-food processor). It's a 2 cup size and I can quickly chop tomatoes, onions, carrots, garlic, cheese, mix up salad dressing, scramble eggs, ect. I would be lost without it!

rag55 said...

Idon't really cook, so my favorite kitchen gadget would be a can opener so I can open up a can of soup and heat it up!!!!! lol

Pat said...

A friend once gave me a little gadget that is plastic and you just put it under the edge of a screw-on lid and pull up until you hear the vacuum seal unpop on the jar. Then.....the lid turns easily to open. No more banging on the edge of jar lids OR hurting my hands trying to turn them to open them. I saw them at the kitchen shop in the outlet center near us and think I am going to get them to give as little gifts to people soon. I think I am going to invest in Soda Stream soon and that might be my new favorite...who knows!

Lisa C in GA. said...

I have a wooden kitchen mallet that my husband's great grandfather made for his great grandma...and that ties with my brand new silicone bowl scrapers, lol. Old and new, both indispensable!

Jamie P said...

My favorite kitchen gadget is my microplane--works great on fresh parm cheese.

jqluo said...

I loved my microwave. I can cooked instant noodles with it!

Karen Propes said...

My favorite kitchen gadget is my small chopper, I use it for everything. I have stomach problems so I use this instead of the juicer/blender. This wall hanging would be perfect in our little angel's room. She would flip over it. Thanks for awesome, Fabulous giveaway.

jh22 said...

I love my garlic press. It is so much easier than trying to chop garlic really small!

Nancy Sue said...

I love my old sunbeam steamer. If you haven't had summer sweet corn steam for 14 mins in a steamer, you are missing out! My second favorite thing (although it may not pass for "gadget" is a silicone muffin pan, for my 4 yr old son's lunch. If you have a picky eater, it is a wonderful motivator. You can place a little of alot of food in each compartment :)

Anonymous said...

I used to be a potter (the clay kind) and used a kidney shaped tool regularly.. it translated into the kitchen very nicely. I cut myself similiar shaped one from a plastic bottle with straight sides (many can be made from the one bottle) and it makes the best scraper or spatula and you can get the last bit out of bowls and as a smoother of icing etc. It was fun to use a similiar tool to be creative in both places.

Let's see .... my favorite would have to be my Kitchen Aid Professional mixer. I love making homebread, so when I do this allows me to make much easier to multiply loaves of multiply bread in one day. My family LOVES the smell of fresh bread raising and baking as much as they LOVE eating it warm with lots of butter!!!!
