Kitchen Gadgets and Appliances I’d Like to Have

I had another post planned for today but in the chaos that is DIY blog design I completely forgot to take pictures for it. D’oh.

So today I am going to share some of the tools on my wish list.

  • Rice cooker. Everyone I know who has one of these raves about them. And they aren’t as much of a unitasker as one might think. You can make mac and cheese in one. How cool is that?
  • Electric griddle. I think if I had a way to cook more than two pancakes at a time I might make them more often.
  • Immersion blender. I used to have one of these a long time ago. Back when they had entire infomercials dedicated to them. I would love to have another one for recipes like my tomato soup. Because even after letting the soup cool slightly and leaving the middle cap off the lid I still get nervous blending hot liquid.
  • Microplane zester/grater. Right now when I need fresh ginger for stir fries or marinades I have to use my food processor to finely mince it. Even when I use the smaller work bowl it’s still a major pain in the neck. Being able to grate the ginger would be so much easier.

What’s on YOUR kitchen wish list? I’d love to hear so please share in the comments.
