  1. Susan O. – My favorite kitchen gadget is my rice/veggie cooker. I just put in the rice and the veggies and a bit of water or stock and turn it on. I don’t even have to check on it! I just LOVE it!! No more burnt rice.
  2. Kevin F. – wife can’t live without our vitamixer
  3. Kathryn L. – Kitchenaid Stand Mixer. No question.
  4. Lindsay P. – The garlic press! Helps my hands avoid smelling like garlic every single day. Such a time saver, too!
  5. Tracy M. – I adore my Tupperware can opener. I appreciate the non-rough edges left behind on both the can and the "lid."
  6. Shirley M. – My Empire Red Kitchen Aid mixer!
  7. Ellen D-G. – The dishwasher and my mixer and my toaster. Without the dishwasher I would spend far to much time away from family cleaning up after mixing up goodies.
  8. Joanne K. – My most prized utensil is the Pampered Chef rubber spatula. It can stand heat up to…like..560 degrees so it won’t melt or bend like the cheap ones. It is very versatile. I have 3 and use them everyday. Would not want to be without it.
  9. Kathy A. – Absolutely has to be my KitchenAid mixer which handles GF flours so easily.
  10. Amanda C. – I love my Kitchen Aid mixer! From bread mixes to peanut butter fudge to mashed potatoes, it does it all.

    My wooden spoon that was originally my mom’s. I learned to cook with it forty+ years ago and use it every day. It shows all the love (translation: it’s been burned, scraped, chipped, drowned, you name it). I make my special Chocolate Fudge Sauce with it. Life is good with my wooden spoon.

    Hmm…I would say my knives

  3. Brenda R says:

    stainless compost can with carbon filtered lid

  4. Erica says:

    Hmm… I think it would either be the potato masher, or the Ulu (Alaskan knife).

    Immersion blender! I’ve been making lots of soups using this handy gadget.

    The answer to this question changes quite often for me, however lately it’s been my Margaritaville Margarita Maker- it is great for a quick happy hour event to gather friends, but just as good for slushies for the kids and shaved ice when you are trying to hydrate because of a flu bug. If you don’t have one- it’s a WINNER of a gift for yourself or someone you love!

    My Kitchen Aid Stand mixer…especially now that I understand more about gluten free cooking. I was at a gluten free cooking class a couple weeks ago and was so thankful for a mixer that has whisk attachment. I didn’t realize that gluten free baking would need a lot of whisking…the stand mixer saves me a lot of time and "elbow grease"! 🙂

    My cookie scoop. I’m lost without it.

    My old hickory knife that my grandma gave me back in ’82. Best
    Knife in the world. Cuts bagels open, slices pizza dough, cuts biscuits apart…of course all Udis.

  10. Karen says:

    My garlic press. Love fresh garlic in almost everything!

  11. elizabeyta says:

    Wooden spoon… I think!

  12. Diane says:

    My most prized gadget is my zester! A little lemon zest always brightens a dish!

  13. Jessica M. says:

    Onion Chopper! creates perfect chopped or diced onions in a flash…and no tears!

  14. Hope Chastain says:

    love my food processor to make "bread crumbs" out of chex cereal.

  15. Rebecca says:

    I use so many, I guess I love my high heat rubber spatulas.

  16. Kiki says:

    My Great Grandmother’s potato masher is my most prized kitchen utensil. Well over 100 years old, it still works great.

  17. Karol says:

    My crockpot. I use it for so many different things.

  18. Amber says:

    My most prized kitchen gadget/utensil would definitely be my two hands… I love working with my hands rather than with spatulas!

  19. Kate says:

    my toaster.. I toast any type of bread item I eat.. it helps even the best gluten free bread texture become even better!! 🙂 I also love my dehydrator – apple chips are awesome!!

    Kitchen Shears. I use them all the time. Very handy in cutting up your kids’ food.
