my favorite kitchen gadgets

I love to cook and I love to bake. And I've learn over the years that certain tools make both of these much easier and pleasant.

I pinned a number of these products long ago on my Pinterest Products I Love board.

Here's the run down on my favorite kitchen items

Number 1
My Kitchen Aid
I could not live without my Kitchen Aid. Growing up, my mom had an almond one, and she let me use whenever I wanted. I think I used it more than her. (And I'm pretty sure she still has it.)

Mine was a gift on our wedding registry that we didn't receive. But I knew I wanted one, so I returned a bunch of gifts to accumulate enough store credit to purchase it. This is the only appliance I keep on my counter tops, and she deserves it. This is only hard working and versatile machine.

Number 2
My WS Nesting Mixing Bowls
Every kitchen needs a set of mixing bowls. These particular bowls are from Williams-Sonoma. They have gripper bottom and a pour spout. Not only are they well designed, I think they are pretty cute. They come in various colors. Mine were a gift from my mother-in-law.

Number 3
My Pampered Chef Scrapers
These little scrappers come with the stoneware line. But honestly, I reach for mine much more often than I use my stone wear. This is little guy is perfect for scraping dried on food or spills. This will easily lift off anything that doesn't come up with the swipe of a wet rag.

Number 4
My Cuisinart Food Processor
This is the newest addition to my kitchen (of those on the list). I don't pull it out for the small cutting or chopping tasks, but when cooking a big meal, or lots of meals, this is the way to go. Well worth the price. But shop around -there is always good deals online and at the department stores.
