Smarter Living: My favorite kitchen item is...

Posted by   + Show Post

Do you have a kitchen item that you just love? That you use everyday...or whenever you use it, you smile a goofy smile and think, "I am SO glad I have this!" It could be anything: the microwave that saves you oodles of time, the jar opener-gripper-doohickey that pops open the tomato sauce with ease preventing wrist strain, bamboo tongs to grasp toast from the toaster avoiding knuckle burns and electric shock, that collapsible colander you use to rinse veggies, pasta and fruit.

Mine? It sits there. Taking up precious counter space. It blinks this annoying bright blue light to tell me when it needs more water. It wasn't cheap. All qualities I shouldn't overlook...but I do...because I love it. I adore it. I need it.

My Keurig coffee maker.

Okay, sure, "need" is a strong word. This may be an unhealthy obsession, I know this...but it is an amazing machine. Makes a great cup of coffee in record time. Not a lot of rinsing of carafes or washing grinds off the counter.

They are silly, lazy reasons to love my coffee maker. I totally, 100% realize this...but sometimes that is the way it goes right? Like loving The Bachelor or Real Housewives.

For just pure fun, ladies, what is your favorite tool or appliance in the kitchen?

I use my new toaster almost everyday. Other than that we don't have favorite appliance and tool right now. We really need upgrade everything and buy new items. Thanks for sharing.
