Favorite Kitchen Appliance

What's your favorite kitchen appliance? My favorite, favorite kitchen appliance is my 6 quart Kitchen Aid mixer. How did women bake before stand mixers were invented? I can't imagine having to mix cookie dough, bread dough, and other baked goods by hand. I usually have a difficult time even holding an electric hand mixer long enough to mix ingredients together if the dough becomes thick at all. I love being able to throw the ingredients into the bowl and let the mixer do the work. My favorite baked good to make with my mixer is Angel Food cake. After making homemade Angel Food cake, I do not like to make the boxed mix.

I have a tie for my second favorite appliance. I really like my bread machine for many of the same reasons why I like my mixer. What's even better about the bread machine is that it bakes the bread as well as mixes it. The other appliance is my Kitchen Aid mini chopper. We really like On the Border chips and salsa, but the salsa at the store is chunkier than what they serve in the restaurant, so I use my mini chopper to make the salsa less chunky and it tastes just like the salsa at the restaurant. I don't know that I have used my mini chopper for anything else besides the salsa ;o)

For Christmas a year ago, Don got me a food processor. At first I wasn't sure about it, now I can't imagine life in the kitchen without it! Like you, I make salsa with it, chop nuts for recipes, slice potatoes, slice apples for pie, grate cheese, and chop things in seconds. I LOVE that thing!
I'm also a microwave junkie and love my Iced Tea maker too!
