What are you 3 favorite kitchen tools?  (Could be anything, utensils, appliances, countertop (LOL) anything!)

1) My KitchenAid mixer. It has made my baking experience so much easier!! 
2) My handheld chopper- I HATE choping garlic and onions and this makes it so much easier.
3) My Electric Griddle- its huge and can hold eggs, bacon, sausage, AND pancakes at the same time. ANd its nonstick, so it never gets messy!!

Only 3???  I could give you 3 for each sub category!

Okay, I’ll try…
1 - My splurge nickle plated KitchenAid - it makes me smile every time I look at it. 
2 - My 12qt All-Clad stock pot - I use it no less than 5 times a week, and I’m sure it will still be preforming as well 50 or 60 years from now.
3 - My huge cherry and walnut cutting board.  I had it made by the guy who makes a lot of the cutting boards on Food Network.  I use it several times a day, everyday.  I will never regret buying it.

Great answers Jen.  Funny you should mention the PC spatulas… I just got done uploading a photo of them for my blog - they’re the BEST!

#1. My Chinese cleaver. I paid two dollars for it at a yard sale in the late 70’s. It holds a razor sharp edge better and longer than any of my Henkels, Globals, and Sabatiers. Did I mention I paid $2 for it?
#2. My Gaggenau oven. What did I ever do without a proofing cycle, rotisserie, and pizza brick?
#3. My home made SuperPeel. Totally a revolution in pizza baking.

1. Yes, once again—the Microplane.
2. Our new stove. Finally something that really works!
3. Our lovely Japanese knives with the laminated “watered-steel” blades.

and #4 and most important of all: My husband who does most of the everyday cooking and dish-washing.

1. My hobart made KA stand mixer (Ebay, circa 1985)
2. my Cuisinart 14 cup food processor (got it for a steal on Amazon)
3. My dishwasher (what would a modern kitchen be without an automatic dishwasher?)

If I could add a 4th item it would be my garbage disposal smile

If you couldn’t guess, I grew up (and I’m only 30) without any of these modern kitchen helpers!

I’m hoping to add a Vita-Mix soon to make a Top 5 smile.

Of these the microplane is the newest, my Kenwood is 36 years old and my Magimix is at least 24 years old.  I look after things!!! LOL !  They all get used regularly by the way.

Microplanes are long, thin zester/graters. Perfect for zesting citrus as they only take off the aromatic peel and non of the bitter white pith. I use them for grating cheese over pastas, and grating ginger and garlic as well. A very handy kitchen tool indeed. I’m surprised you have not heard of them/seen them. They are all the rage these days. You can find them at any kitchen supply store.
