If I read this last week, I would have said a mixer, but I just got a KitchenAid mixer at my engagement party.... so.. I'd have to go with a food processor. I have a small capacity, 3 cup food processor that I use all the time, but I really want a 10+ cup capacity.

As much as I would love love love to have my own espresso machine, a Kitchenaid Mixer is where it's at.

I need a new food processor, but I'm disappointed in the quality of what is out there. Even the top of the line ones feel poorly made and as if it'll need replacement in a short time. If anyone has some suggestions that'd be awesome.

Since I already have a Kitchenaid, blender, Cuisinart and don't want a juicer or expresso maker - I WANT A WONDERFUL ICE CREAM MAKER.

I would say I'd spend the most on a Food Processor because they just do everything, but I choose Mixer cause I want the Kitchen Aid one so bad, and it seems everyone else here either has one and loves it or wants one...so now I just want it more

Haha hollygo4405, I, too, plan on getting married just for the pink Kitchenaid. I can't justify buying it myself, because, really, my hand mixer (with dough hook attachments, $7 at Walmart) works just fine. I want that pink ice cream maker that was posted a while back, but I don't think I'd ever use it. I REALLY want a food processor- I have one of those little mini ones, and it sucks. But that, too will have to be a gift. I'd have to choose the juicer, because I know I'd use it a lot, and my bf's crazy about those expensive juice drinks- we'd save money by making them ourselves. Plus, I'm always wishing I could juice the extra carrots (we can never eat the whole bag before they go bad) and the about-to-go-bad fruit.In fact, a juicer WAS next on our list of big purchases, but then we decided to get cable, so no juicer for me...

Oh, none of these are splurges! They are must haves. We have them all and use them on a regular basis...except the espresso maker maybe.

A stand mixer is great if you're into serious baking, especially anything stiff and heavy like bread dough. The dough hook is awesome! I have a friend who basically bakes only things from boxes...I think they bought their machine for some kind of "status".

A good mixer is definitely worth the splurge! I want a pink KitchenAid mixer so bad!! The great thing about those are ALL of the awesome attachments! Another thing that wasn't listed (although I wouldn't exactly call it a gadget) is knives. Good, sharp, professional quality knives are definitely worth the extra money!
