1, Mixmaster
2. Coffeepot
3. Microwave oven

Cannot live without these three items.

I could live without the blender. Rarely use it anymore.

I love the small hand held mixer meant sticking into drinks. I use it to get the texture I want for soups. That way you can stick it right into the pot without having to pour some of the soup into a blender.

Very little splatter and/or mess to clean up with this nifty kitchen toy!

This is the best kitchen toy I have ever bought! I enjoy hard-cooked eggs....very versatile. With this, I have no stove top cooking, no green yolks from an unwatched pot of simmering water, cracked eggs, just absolutely 100% perfectly hard-cooked eggs everytime! Here is the product description. "Egg Poacher / Cooker. Cooks up to 6 eggs perfectly every time. Prepare hard, soft or medium boiled eggs, omelets too. Buzzer sounds when eggs are ready. Dimensions: 8 x 4 x 4."

A typical experience with cooking hard-cooked eggs. Remove eggs from fridge. Allow to come to room temperature. Place pan of cool water on stove top. Carefully place eggs in water. Turn burner to high. Allow water to come to boil. Immediately reduce heat and finish cooking for five minutes in gently bubbling boiled water. Remove from heat. Drain water. Immediately begin cool down process to stop further cooking of eggs and production of green yolks. Run cold tap water over eggs and cover gently with ice to chill. Whew....there you are....ready to peel and hope for the best!

My experience with the egg cooker. Remove eggs from fridge. Pierce egg shell with needle punch on bottom of measuring tube. (See photo gallery for picture) Place eggs in unit. Add appropriate amount of water. If cooking six eggs...1/4 cup. Cover with see-through plastic lid. Turn timer on to hard-boiled egg level. Buzzer sounds in 4-5 minutes. Eggs are perfectly cooked. Cool down if using immediately, otherwise not necessary. The 4-5 minutes allowed for the cool down...

What's not to like? Now on to load the picture of the unit in the photo gallery for you to fingers are crossed - not always easily accomplished. Deedee

My single-serve coffee pot with its own travel mug! So handy. Of course, it's been getting quite the workout since I've been at home, but it does a great job. And it has its own filter so I don't have to buy filters - I love that!

Oh, I have what is called "one mug coffeemaker"...probably very similar in design and I agree with you 100%. No filters, no muss, no fuss. It brews a 12 oz cup of coffee but I use my favorite morning coffee cup instead of the thermal unit which was included. Gotta' love the convenience of this very inexpensive necessity... Thanks for sharing!

1. My coffee pot
2. My microwave, do people realize that you can cook with a microwave, not just use it to warm your coffee?
3. My industrial mixer.

I have a little plastic gizmo from Pampered Chef that helps open jars on one end and bottle caps on the other. Slightly arthritic hands make opening water bottles difficult. This little gadget saves the day for me.

Ooh, I won a pitcher from Pampered Chef at a conference last year. It's a standard 2-qt. pitcher, but the lid has a handle that moves up and down in the pitcher and ends in a fan-like device. When you raise and lower the handle, the fan creates a whirling motion in the pitcher that stirs the contents. My hubby and I have put that thing to work this summer making instant lemonade and Kool-Aid! Very neat.

That sounds like a great "contraption" Judy. You mentioned being at a Pampered Chef conference...I was once a "Pampered Chef Home Consultant"...I think that was the title the company used. Are you one as well?

Actually, I was at the annual Women Aware Conference (which is fabulous. It's in September and would be worth driving from St. Louis for - hint, hint). There are all kinds of booths, guest speakers, break-out sessions, food, give-aways. It's a day full of fun just for women. Pampered Chef had a booth and I signed up for a door prize and won! I also got a pair of Spa Socks from the BeautiControl Booth. You zap 'em in the microwave and put them on for a while before pedicures, but I like to use 'em in the winter when my feet are cold, which is pretty much all the time.
