Let's Dish: What Kitchen Appliance Can You Not Live Without?

From spice grinders to immersion blenders, electronic appliances make whipping up sauces, soups, and soufflés a breeze. While many gadgets have a specified use, others, like the food processor or standing mixer, are versatile multitaskers. Whether it's the espresso machine that makes your morning coffee or the ice cream maker that freezes your frozen treats, everyone has that one kitchen appliance — the tool you rely on to make you a better cook — that you just can't live without.

So, spill the beans: what's the one kitchen gadget you cannot live without?

It's a tie between my heat-resistant spatula, which I literally use for every single thing I cook, and my heavy nonstick cast iron pan, which I also seem to use for every meal.

Sorry, my comment above got cut off somehow? It was supposed to say "I *heart* my tea maker."

My iced tea maker is probably the appliance I use the most often. We drink a lot of sweet tea, usually have a couple different flavors in the fridge. My husband does a lot of the real cooking, but I always make the tea & the salad. I <3<3<3 my tea maker.

The oven would be an obvious one, but I'd also have to say the microwave. I reheat soup several times a week, cook egg whites in it every morning and steam vegetables in it almost every night. Also, I *could* live without my toasted sandwich maker; I would just prefer not to. :)

Haha, Shoneyjoe! Well..I must be lucky, the transformer I have just buzzes softly...I have had it about 6 years now, it hasn't let me down yet, even in Europe.. American stand mixer plugged into British transformer with European adapter on it. I really have to stop moving. :P

rabidmoon - when I was a student in England, my best friend (originally from Long Island) did the same thing with her KitchenAid. The transformer she had was loud and obnoxious (much like her - awesome!) and her housemates always complained. Thing is, they also devoured everything she made with that thing.

My cheap little red teakettle, and my not-so-cheap KitchenAid stand mixer...I actually brought it from the USA and use a transformer to power it here. (not only are the even MORE expensive in the UK but you can't find a black one, so I am glad I did!)
