Imagine yourself in your kitchen; take a look around. Now, from of all your small appliances, gadgets, utensils, and/or piece of cookware/bakeware, which three are your favorites and would fight tooth and nail to keep?

My choices would be my immersion blender, coffee brewer and chef's knife.

Microwave, wine rack, and my knives.

I just went in the kitchen, looked around, and realized I didn't care about much in there except the refrigerator, microwave, and dishwasher, but the fridge and dishwasher wouldn't qualify as small appliances. Frankly, my microwave probably doesn't either because I buy the gihugic versions.

Substitute the foil remover for the beer glass Andy.

I think I would miss my food processor the most........I have several attachments so I can also grate cheese without getting skin and fingernails in the grater. Coffee pot is right up there also.

I would say the Bunn coffee maker, the microwave and my food processor.

I still have my mom's paring knife and will never part with that one.
my carrot peeler (some people peel potatoes with this. I use the paring knife)
my big spoon with the holes in it. I use it for everything except for serving gravy or soup.

My rolling pin is used for my weapon when I have to go out at night. LOL

Microwave, immersion blender, coffee maker

We got our first microwave back in the dark ages of 1978. The appliance stores would not sell you one unless you took the "course" first. They gave us free passes to a demo that was being held in a hotel conference room the size of a theatre. We had to get the passes signed in order to buy the microwave. That was the original Amana Radarange - and, gulp, it cost $450 back in 1978. We just got rid of that particular model a couple of years ago, but I cannot imagine being without a microwave.

I was always very greatful to the man who sold us our first microwave from Sage's Furniture Store. At the time, my husband and a friend were in the upholstery business together. The owner of the store wanted his mother's car reupholstered and we traded the wages out in microwaves for each family. I didn't know a lot about them back then, but he sold us a Sharp carousel which at the time not all microwaves had a turntable. If he had not recommended this particular one, and I had chosen one without the turntable, there is no way I would have turned and stirred things every few minutes, and my first impression of a microwave would not have been a good one.

My Calphalon 10" skillet. Worth every penny.

My Swing Away can opener. The other kinds just suck.

My Pampered Chef mini food it and I haven't even used it yet! (Used my Mom's and it rocks)

The telephone and the pile of menus from local restaurants. And the Gladware for leftovers.

I will go with Susq, even though I love to cook. I love the crock pot, great invention.

Nothing beats our crock-pot for convenience and it also doubles as a household deoderizer, covering up such unpleasant "scents" as wet dogs, smelly men, stale beer. etc.

Wife wrote the above. There is no such thing as "stale beer" in our house,

Bigbird, I bought my microwave about the same time you did. However, I didn't have to take any lessons. I inherited about $500 from my aunt's estate and so I used that money to purchase the Amana Radarange microwave. And, like you, it's been just a few years ago that I finally got a different one.

My list would include the Crockpot, a Pampered Chef jar and bottle opener (saves the old arthritic hands) and my new set of cookware I bought at the grocery store promotion last summer. You don't always get good quality on those deals, but this set turned out to be super quality.

Sharp carousel microwave, Sunbeam electric can opener (has lots of nifty attachments), and T-Fal toaster (has a wide slot to toast bagels).

My first microwave was a Sharp with glass turntable, and that's the brand I've stayed with.

manual Swing-a-way can opener -- if you ever lived in an area where the power can be off for days due to bad weather, you'll appreciate one.

well seasoned iron skillets... can be used on electric or gas burners, in the oven or over open flame.

very sharp chef's knife
