Second and final installment of my obsession with kitchen gadgets. First installment here.
|KitchenAid Artisan Stand Mixer|
While I'll admit (since my husband does read this) that the KitchenAid received very little use our first couple years of marriage, it's been used quite frequently ever since. Am I aware that it's a status symbol that most 20-30 somethings always have on their registry? Yes. Was I willing to be a follower and totally jump on that bandwagon, even if I saw no real need at the time of our marriage? Totally.
Pinterest just gave me a new way to shred chicken (loathed job) using the paddle. Haven't tried it yet, but place warm, cooked chicken in the mixer, attach paddle, turn on to a 2-3 and watch it shred for you. Yessss.

|Cuisinart 8-Cup Rice Cooker|
|Cuisinart Immersion Blender with Attachments|
|Blendtec Total Blender Four Side|
|Set of Crate & Barrel Glass Bowls|
|Crate & Barrel tongs|
Maybe trivial, but these get used daily in our house. We have a small and a large.
There were a few flops that I would not purchase again, but the main one is something so many people have and register for. I don't understand why it was so poorly designed and sells so many! We love tea in our home and the tea kettle is used often. But this design has a huge flaw. The handle has a small rubber strip that is surrounded by metal! When heated, it is very hot and impossible to hold without burning yourself. Here it is... the tea kettle.

Perhaps a new beauty is in my future once our current one bites the dust (probably never).
|That may or may not match my new dutch oven. omg.|
Alright, so let's hear it. What is your absolute favorite thing in your kitchen?
