  1. 1

    My mini food processor, because I love making hummus, nut butter and pesto. And mine just broke, so I’d especially love to win! ;)

  2. 2

    My George Foreman and I are inseparable. So college I know but I don’t have a real grill and live in the land of 6 months of snow so he helps cook everything. Yep he’s a he too :-)

  3. 3

    Probably my counter top grill! My apartment doesn’t have any outdoor space and so it’s great for grillin’ veggies or making killer paninis.

  4. 4

    Good luck moving in/decorating! I can’t live without my KitchenAid stand mixer, makes baking waaaaaaay too easy

  5. 5

    Just Tweeted the giveaway here:

  6. 6

    i’m going with my cast iron skillet. it’s like the Superman of the kitchen. i don’t even know what that means :)

  7. 7

    I love my toaster oven too — more than my microwave!

    But I need new kitchen supplies, so pick me!

    I can’t live without my blender…now if only I could afford a VitaMix! :)

  9. 9

    Cool giveaway! I’m in love with my microplane grater. Makes so many things so much easier!

  10. 10

    Mine is my toaster oven as well! Just makes things so convenient!

  11. 11

    Just tweeted! Check your @’s :)

  12. 12

    Can’t live without a toaster! I use it almost every day :).

  13. 13

    It’s got to be my blender. Smoothies and purees and more!

  14. 14

    My grandmothers old blender. It weighs about 20lbs and could be used as a weapon if anyone breaks into my apartment. But even after 30 years it crushes ice perfectly and makes the most excellent smoothies/GMs! (or milkshakes ;) )

  15. 15

    I’m gonna have to go with my Magic Bullet. I use it almost every day for smoothies, sauces, dips, etc. Our blender is 80 years old and weighs 80 pounds so the MB is much easier to use.

  16. 16

    My food processor, can’t live without it! :)

  17. 17

    I love my pressure cooker more than anything. I love cooking a whole chicken in it. Saves time. Chicken is very tender, falls off the bone. Makes for delicious chicken salad. Toaster oven is a close 2nd.

  18. 18

    I can’t live without our All-Clad Double Burner Grill Pan — we can grill meat in one section and veggies on another, all during the cold months when we can’t bear to stand outside at our actual grill (or in the summer when we forget to refill the propane tank)! We use this almost every night for dinner and it makes grilling so easy.

    I cannot live without my chef’s knife! I love cooking, do a ton of it, and it has its own sharpening case! Score!

  20. 20

    I too cannot live without my toaster oven. DBF got me a swanky Kitchenaid one for my birthday a few years ago and it is amazing! I hardly ever use my regular oven anymore since this roasts perfect veggies :)

  21. 21

    The blender! Must have my smoothie every morning for breakfast.

  22. 22

    There’s lots of stuff I want, but right now it’s my coffee maker!

  23. 23

    I can’t live without my Cuisinart food processor – LOVE IT!

  24. 24

    I literally could not survive without my coffee maker. Not very original but it’s true!

  25. 25

    I think that my can’t live without is my blender. I just use it all the time.

  26. 26

    I tweeted

  27. 27

    I can’t live without my KitchenAid Stand Mixer…well I probably could live without it..but I would never want to!!

  28. 28

    I can’t live without vinegar in the kitchen. I put it on everything!

  29. 29

    andd a tweeted! @ahealthiermaria

  30. 30

    My absolutely favorite kitchen appliance is my iced tea maker. But what I’m really looking for now is pots and pans that aren’t nonstick. Which I see CSN has…woo hoo!

  31. 31

    I also tweeted (@runleangreen)

  32. 32

    Can’t live without my chef’s knife or maybe my oatmeal pot–it’s the perfect size.

  33. 33

    Just tweeted. =)

  34. 34

    I am also a toaster girl! It is so much easier to use than my ancient oven!

  35. 35

    My 8-inch skillet and my mini-food processor. Use them almost every day!

  36. 36

    I can’t live without my german knives. I love cutting up veggies with them…and everything else.

  37. 37
    Samantha Kepler says:

    If I had a food processor I probably wouldn’t be able to live without that. Same if I had a kitchen aid mixer. But since I have neither of those, I’d say one thing I really love are my new herb snips! If you ahve fresh herbs, these are really useful for both stripping the leaves from the stalks/stems and for snipping things like basil that get kind of messy when you try to use a knife and cutting board. Williams-Sonoma has ’em :-)

  38. 38

    My panini press changed my life. I use it to make grilled veggies (just discovered grilled green beans rock.) Also, I have begun using my antique cast iron skillet much more to get a good sear on meats – so much tastier! No wonder my mom always used it to cook.

  39. 39

    I absolutely could not live without my toaster. I use it every single day!

  40. 40

    I would have to say my stoneware pizza rounds. I bake everything from pizza, to cookies, to bread on those babies, and everything turns out perfect!

  41. 41

    definitely my toaster oven!

  42. 42

    I’d have to say my rabbit wine opener. Love that thing!
    And my blender comes in handy, too.

  43. 43

    My coffee maker rules my world, with my food processor as its right-hand man!

  44. 44

    My Kitchen Aid mixer. I bake all the time and it is the item I would save if my house was on fire.

  45. 45

    Can’t live without my blender and food processor combo from Cuisinart! Love it! Just used the blender to make that spinach-banana smoothie :)

  46. 46

    I couldn’t live without my cast iron pan! Love it!

  47. 47

    My Penguin (seltzer water maker)! My husband and love fizzy water, and with the Penguin we don’t have to buy and throw away tons of plastic bottles.

    I am in LOVE with my food processor! I find any excuse to use it :)

  51. 51

    Easy: food processor. Can’t live without!

  52. 52

    Tweet tweet

  53. 53

    My favorite kitchen appliance would have to be my immersion blender…mashed potatoes, creamy soups…so easy to use and clean!

  54. 54

    I definitely couldn’t live without my Cuisinart Coffeemaker! I love me some coffee :)

  55. 55

    One kitchen appliance I cannot live without is my french press! I LOVE french pressed coffee so much more than coffee from a coffee maker :)

  56. 56

    Can’t live without my coffee maker. Let’s be honest. ;)

    I am obsessed with spatulas- i may or may not have 8 different kinds. LOVE.

  60. 60

    Tweet tweet :)

  61. 61

    I love, love, LOVE my immersion blender! It came with a bunch of attachments, so I can whisk, chop, blend… pretty much do ANYTHING without having to drag out the cumbersome food processor, and it’s much easier to clean, too!

    I’ve used it to chop frozen cherries, almonds, and walnuts for a modified version of your Almond Breakfast Bars. I also use it for salsa, for tomato basil soup, for chipotle chicken tacos, tapenade for gyros, pesto, hummus, pico de gallo… anything, really! :-)

  62. 62

    Mine is definitely my KitchenAid mixer! I love to bake and it is amazing!

  63. 63

    I can’t live without my cuisinart!!

  64. 64
  65. 65

    It’s a tie between my blender and microwave! In college, the microwave is definitely my lifesaver :)

  66. 66

    So this sounds strange, but my favorite appliance is one I haven’t even used yet. My KitchenAid mixer! I have of course used my mom’s in the past, but I haven’t had the opportunity to mix anything in my own yet (not doing enough baking.) I will next week though, when I make cupcakes for my coworker’s baby shower! When Ben gave it to me for Christmas last year I literally burst into tears when I opened it, I was THAT HAPPY TO GET IT!!

    So yes, I think it counts as favorite. It’s so pretty. :)

  67. 67

    I love my immersion blender, it’s so easy to clean!

  68. 68

    Just tweeted. Twote? Twat? ;)

  69. 69

    The Magic Bullet is a definite staple in my kitchen.

    Tweeted! :)

  70. 70

    I can’t live without my muffin tins. I love to make a big batch of muffins and freeze them for an easy go to breakfast.

  71. 71

    I can’t live without my coffee machine…I looove waking up to the smell and taste of coffee!

  72. 72

    I can’t live without my grill. We just got one this past summer and I don’t know how we survived without it.

  73. 73

    I can’t live without good knives. They make everything easier and faster.

  74. 74

    I love my french press, I cannot drink coffee without it! Well, unless I trek out to Starbucks, but it’s so far away! No instant or drip coffee in my house : )

  75. 75

    I can’t live without my blender… I use it to make smoothies, soups, nut butters, sauces and banana soft serves…. it’s so old that I constantly have to pulse it, boo.. I’d love to get me a vita-mix!! =)

  76. 76

    I couldn’t live without my food processor! I use it for everything!

  77. 77

    I really need a new dutch oven in Orange, my husband burnt the bottom of ours and know it stains my cabinets black. Darn him ;)

  78. 78

    Just tweeted about it!

  79. 79

    My favorite item on the kitchen counter is my single servince smoothing maker.

    Crock pot for me! I can not live without my crock pot,it cooks for me while I just do my daily stuff.I am crazy about it!

  82. 82

    I can’t live without my panini press/grill. I LOVE grilled/pressed sandwiches…there are so many possibilities and a sandwich is definitely better warm!

  83. 83

    My favorite appliance would have to be my rice cooker. It can be used to cook rice, oatmeal, and frittatas; steam veggies and meat; and make soups and chili! Can make great meals all in one pot.

  84. 84
  85. 85

    Toaster oven is a good one! And my Cuisinart for hummus and banana soft-serve. :)

  86. 86

    I FINALLY talked my husband into a toaster over — he totally didn’t see the point if we already had an oven, a grill, a foreman and a microwave. Silly boys. :)

  87. 87

    I can’t live without my cast iron skillet. Makes everything taste so yummy!

  88. 88

    I don’t think I could live without my coffeemaker. I love having hot coffee waiting for me on a cold winter morning. :)

  89. 89

    The blender for sure!! Fruit Smoothies for breakfast = YUM!

  90. 90

    I got a keurig yesterday as a wedding gift. It was love at first site. I don’t know why I’ve waited so long to get one! it makes coffee so easy and fast and no cleanup! I have a coffee addiction clearly ;)

  91. 93

    I couldn’t live without my sodastream. Really, I don’t remember what I did without it!

  92. 94

    While I agree the toaster is a necessity, I love our awesome veggie peeler we bought from the man who used to sell them in Union Square. I walked by numerous times thinking the guy was entertaining, and then once we bought one I was converted! Amazing! I only wish we had purchased more to give as gifts before he passed away. I don’t think they’re sold anywhere! :( He was one smart man!

  93. 95

    A set of good knives are essential.

  94. 96

    I’d die without my blender. I use is for sauces, salad dressings, soups, smoothies. Love it.

  95. 97

  96. 98

    My coffee maker. It’s the last thing I touch in my kitchen at night (preparing it for the next day) and the first thing every morning.

  97. 99

    Um – my coffee pot!! ;-)

  98. 100

    I am with you Anne, my toaster oven and I am tight. I can create an entire meal or just toast an english muffin for me. So versitale and loved!

  99. 101

    I cannot live without my blender. It’s nothing fancy, but it whips up a green monster like nobody’s business.

  100. 102

    Also, just tweeted. :)

  101. 103

    my spatula!!! It helps me get every delicious food out of the bowl and into the pot/pan/dish.

    Have fun decorating the new place:)

  102. 104

    i totalllllly can NOT live without my coffee machine!

  103. 105

    I couldn’t do anything without my chefs knife. A good one is a must have. I’m also pretty attached to my food processor. You can do just about anything with that thing. The only thing that I’ve really been missing is a good blender. Mine is pretty weak

  104. 106

    just tweeted! @julgolean :)

  105. 107

    I cannot live without my food processor! It makes my life 100x easier!

  106. 108

    my mini food processor – its amazing!!

  107. 109

    I’m SO with you on toasted bread for sandwiches… YUM.

    If I won this, I would use it towards a NEW DISH SET !! :) I know, I’d most likely spend 3x or more, but it would motivate me to buy some… we need new dishes desperately :)

  108. 111

    I would love to say something fancy like my vita-mix or panini press, but I honestly could not live without my toaster over. It does everything (makes melts, bakes tofu, chicken and veggies, makes individual sized pizza) and I actually use it every single day. I love the versatility.

  109. 112

    Okay my favorite silly appliance is my Hello Kitty Toaster. How can you not smile in the morning when your toast has Kitty’s face on it? :-) The other would be my oven as I love, love, love roasting vegetables (and as a vegan that occurs pretty often! :-))

    Thank you so much for offering this! What a kind thing to do! :-)

    • 113

      I looooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooove my Hello Kitty toaster too! I’ve fought my brother tooth-and-nail to keep it in the kitchen where it belongs! You are officially awesome. :)

      • 114

        Aww… another Kitty lover! I’m glad you like your toaster too! And thanks for the “awesome” nomination! I my 15 year old daughter would agree with you! Have a wonderful and relaxing weekend, Gretchen!

  110. 115

    Ooooh nice one Anne! I can’t live without my Cuisinart hand blender! Perfect for smoothies :)

  111. 116

    I agree 100% about the toaster, esp for sandwiches! well, and PB toast : )

  112. 117

    My Calphalon saute pan. I use it for everything!

  113. 118

    I don’t use twitter. :(

  114. 119

    Right now, in my cramped and kitchenless :( dormroom, my favorite appliance is either my microwave (though I wish I didn’t have to use it- I’d so much rather have a stove!) and my panini maker, which I use to make toast, quesadillas, paninis (obviously), etc. I hope to get a good blender soon though so that I can make smoothies, nut butter, salad dressing, etc.

  115. 120

    I can’t live without an electric can opener! (Cold soup from the can is the best!
    :-) )

  116. 121

    My pressure cooker. It’s so easy to just throw in some frozen meat, veggies, and a liquid and I have a hot meal in no time.

  117. 122

    My coffee maker. I am sure I could live without it, but I don’t want to find out what that’s like :)

  118. 123

    just tweet tweetly-tweeted about your contest @stuffedwitfluff

    Jen Robinson says:

    I tweeted! well, technically I re-tweeted my sister’s tweet but it totally counts :)

  120. 125

    I can’t live without my blender! Love making green smoothies. Now looking to buy a food processor to make my own pesto, hummus and nut butters!

  121. 126

    my george foreman grill is my go-to kitchen appliance!

  122. 127

    Wow, what an amazing giveaway!! Well not to be a copycat or anything, but I’m in love with my blender and though I technically *could* live without it, definitely wouldn’t want to. :) It’s awesome for smoothies, hummus, dips, and the list goes on and on.

  123. 128

    What an awesome giveaway! I can’t live without my 3-inch paring knife. It’s so sharp and durable I use it for everything. An house guest accidently took it home last weekend and I’m dying without it this week!!

  124. 129

    The gadget I use most is probably my electric kettle… and it’s getting to be that time of year for making lots of hot tea, hot chocolate, and all those toasty treats.

  125. 130

    I love my wok! A little peanut oil, some onion, garlic, and ginger… then toss in some sliced chicken and cook for a few minutes.. then lots of veggies. Try soy sauce or teriyaki, or just have plain with some sweet chili sauce. Delish!

  126. 131

    i tweeted!

  127. 132

    I can’t live without my toaster either!

  128. 133

    I can’t live without a food processor. I just moved to Austin a month ago and left behind my roommates Kitchenaid food processor. Never knew how important it was until it was gone! My Magic Bullet is great for smoothies, but not so much for Ani Phyo’s raw desserts.

  129. 134

    Posted to my blog! :)

  130. 135

    I love my food processor to pieces.

  131. 136

    Blender of course, gotta make my green monster smoothies! :)

  132. 137

    I can’t seem to go a day without using my blender…it’s a must. Have always loved blenders and have gone through my share in my days. Fortunately, my Vitamix is still kickin’! ;-)

  133. 138

    I can’t live without my kettle. I’ve got to have my cup of tea.

  134. 139

    My blender. One day I will get a Vitamix!

  135. 140

    Just tweeted as well. @avalonmel

  136. 141

    I cannot live without my coffee pot! Aside from the fact that I adore coffee, my pot is extra special because it has a built in bean grinder so my morning coffee is always extra fresh and rich. Mmm!

  137. 142

    I tweeted :-)

  138. 143

    I love a good griddle.. I feel like there is so much you do with it!

  139. 144

    We are in desperate need of a new frying pan in our home!! We use ours all the time but its slowing dying and we would love a new one!

  140. 145

    Also just tweeted this!!

  141. 146

    Right now I can’t live without my kitchen scale and measuring cups/spoons. It seems like they are always used.

  142. 147

    Such a great giveaway, so functional!! My favorite kitchen gadget is probably my garlic press! I use it almost every day.

  143. 148

    i cannot live without rice cooker. it is very versatile since it could steam, slow cook, and make oatmeals, rice, soup, etc!

  144. 149

    My food processor. It’s not expensive but it gets the job done.

  145. 150

    My must have kitchen appliance would have to be my mixer. It saves me so much time I can’t imagine not having it!

  146. 151

    I love my griddle. It’s not fancy, but it makes a mean pancake!

    Great giveaway!

  147. 152
  148. 153

    I can’t live without my blender. I use it about every other day- probably the most of all my appliances to make smoothies. My fairly new food processor is giving the blender a run for its money though! I’ve made hummus, banana soft serve, homemade “lara” balls, etc… in that thing. Love it!

  149. 154

    I tweeted your giveaway!

  150. 155

    I can’t live without my blender. I just love my smoothies!

  151. 156

    mixer! i love to bake :)

  152. 157

    The one kitchen appliance I can’t live without is my Magic Bullet. It can be used for SO many things, and gets the job done… until I can get an actual food processor. :)

  153. 158

    I tweeted, too!

  154. 159

    One item I can’t live without?? My AWESOME knives… great knives make such a difference!! :)

  155. 160

    Hands dwn I could not live without my kitchenaid mixer. that bad boy(and attachments) could conquer the world one cupcake at a time!!

  156. 161

    I can’t live without my wine opener! :)

  157. 162

    I have been needing a food processor FOREVER!!!

  158. 163

    I really wouldn’t do well without my blender!

  159. 164

    I can’t live without my oven!

  160. 165

    My French Press! If I had a Kitchen Aid Mixer that would be the one I could not part with…Alas, I do not. *Sigh*

  161. 166

    Magic. Bullet. Pho. Sho!!

  162. 167

    I love my toaster. I am always putting weird things in it that probably shouldn’t be toasted. It is my go to item for sure!

  163. 168

    Right now I am living pretty simply, so I’d have to say the kitchen gadget I cannot live without is a plain ol’ blender (no, not a VitaMix lol). I am seriously need to do some upgrades, though, so this will help!

  164. 169

    Definitely my coffeepot! It’s a Krups. I also love my new Oxo over-the-sink colander – I just leave it out all the time.

  165. 170

    I can’t live without a blender or magic bullet to make my green smoothies in! My blender actually broke this week (so sad) so it might just need to be replaced :)

  166. 171

    I could never live without my food processor! It is crucial for my banana soft serve…yumm!

  167. 172

    love my MOKA espresso maker… can’t function without it!

  168. 173
    Jenna Puckett says:

    Man oh man. It’s a tie between a toaster, a microwave, and my chef’s knife. I have tried to live without each one of these at one point and it did NOT make me happy.

    Pam Lambert says:

    I love my tea pot! It makes every evening special and relaxing!

  170. 175

    Cant live without my magic bullet!!

  171. 176

    my vitamix. i literally use it every single day – totally worth the absurd price, in my opinion :)

  172. 177

    my blender!
    It truly helps me stay on track with my healthy eating. I love smoothies!

  173. 178

    I can’t live without a good knife to cut all my fruit and vegetables! I love when people ask me to prepare something at their house using their cookware.. and the their knives are awful! Everyone needs a good knife set.

  174. 179

    My Kitchenaid Mixer! LOVE baking with my girls! :)

  175. 180

    I don’t use twitter or blog so this will have to do, I have my fingers crossed anyway! I think my current most used kitchen appliance is my blender with all the green monsters I’ve been drinking… but we’ll see if that changes now that the cooler weather is rolling in!

  176. 181

    My food scale <3

  177. 182

    I could not live without my juicer… I love my carrot juice!

  178. 183

    My favorite is absolutely positively my blender, as simple as that is. Without it, I could not make SIABs and that would be a sad, sad day. :)

  179. 184

    My favorite (and essential) piece of kitchen equipment is my Smoothie maker. I would love to win this contest! Thank you!

  180. 185

    I love my toaster oven! I don’t have to fire up the whole oven just to warm something up :)!

  181. 186

    I can’t live without our deep fryer! I know it’s bad, but it makes THE BEST fries ever! Not to mention all the fun we have throwing random foods in to see what happens!

  182. 187

    oh i cant live without a good frying pan! you can make (almost) anything in it!

  183. 188

    my keurig coffee maker!!! i would die without it :)

  184. 189

    One kitchen appliance I can not live without is my blender! xP How would I be able to make gigantic green smoothies without it teehee

  185. 190

    I have this silly little plastic green spoon that I use to mix nearly every thing! I’ve already told my mom that when I move out i’m taking the green spoon. It really is silly and I don’t know why I like it so much but I dont know what I’d do without it!

  186. 191

    Could not live without my grill! I go out even in the dead of winter to grill salmon on my grill :) it just doesn’t taste the same cooked on the stove!

  187. 192

    I must have a good, sharp knife for cutting up my veggies!

  188. 193

    My food scale! I absolutely love it ;) It makes baking and cooking so much easier!

  189. 194

    I would say I can’t live without my food scale and also my measuring cups. It helps me with portion control. :)

  190. 195

    I tweeted this giveaway!

  191. 196

    I just got a panini maker that is amazing…..any sandwich is better when it is warm and melty…also I really love my electric water kettle, boils water for tea in like a minute, love it!.

  192. 197

    Although there are many kitchen items I would be rather upset without, my electric griddle would have to be my favorite. I used it to make dinner tonight.

  193. 198

    love my magic bullet!

  194. 199

    my kitchen scale makes baking so much easier!

  195. 200

    idk if it counts, but i can’t live without my stovetop! i don’t have a panini press so that is what i used to make all my yummy sandwich creations! :)

    thankyou so much!

  196. 201

    I love my toaster oven!!! You can make yummy toasted bread and pizza!!

  197. 202

    I love, love, love my KitchenAid mixer.

  198. 203

    The spoonula! Love of cooking + small apartment kitchen = hello multi-use tools!

  199. 204

    The coffee-maker, of course!

  200. 205

    My coffee maker is the love of my life :)

  201. 206

    I can’t live without my wine opener. That’s a kitchen gadget right?

  202. 207

    Wow, I have never seen this website!! I know that I cannot live without a cookie sheet (wait, does that count?) since you can do so much on it. Also a huge fan of the George Foreman grill.

  203. 208

    I use my toaster a lot… and am itching for a food processor!

  204. 209

    I must say, I could say a million different things! What a great giveaway! I would say my food processor or my iron skillet- use both almost daily! Love your blog!!!

  205. 210

    I wouldn’t be able to live without my food processor.


  206. 211

    I would have to say that my favorite appliance is my blender! I can use it for so many things!

  207. 212

    How fun! I must have my coffee grinder for fresh coffee every day!:)

  208. 213

    I would say my stand mixer. I love to bake and the mixer really make it much easier.

  209. 214

    My KitchenAid stand mixer. I never realized how much I depended on it until I had to make hundreds of cookies for my wedding–it saved the day!

  210. 215

    Love my immersion blender! Gazpacho, smoothies, pesto and more!

  211. 216

    My favorite kitchen appliance is my food processor to make banana soft serve! Unfortunately mine just died (while making banana soft serve) so this card could really help a sista out!

  212. 217

    I’d be lost without my Keurig coffee maker! I can’t make a “real” pot of coffee to save my life…it’s either too strong or too weak.

  213. 218

    Prob my toaster and my blender.. wait that is two things…. i need them!

  214. 219

    Can I only pick one? Probably my Bialetti stove-top espresso maker…it supports my espresso addiction and saves me money :)

  215. 220

    Probably my Kitchen Aid mixer. I love that thing and it gives me good reason to make bread, and pizza dough. It’s way too easy!

  216. 221

    I can’t live without my George Foreman grill! Oh my gosh how nice is it to grill salmon, steaks, burgers, veggies, just anything in that thing!

  217. 222

    I couldn’t live without my mini food processor. I make hummus, salsa, sauces, nut butter, coconut butter, pesto, etc. How would I live without any of these foods?

  218. 223

    i only have one wooden spoon but when it’s dirty, i can’t cook without it, so definitely the wooden spoon.

    and yes, i only comment when you have contests. i like to (try to) win things.

  219. 224

    Immersion blender for sure. I use that thing all the time, baby food, pureed soups, pasta sauce that’s too chunky, you name it! :)

  220. 225

    I can’t live without my coffee maker.. I’d be a zombie without it every morning before my classes. ;)

  221. 226

    I tweeted! Here’s a linky:

    I am absolutely in love with my Kitchen Aid Mixer!!

  228. 233

    My blender..i rely on it for my green monster smoothies.

  229. 234

    I have a cuisinart “everyday” pan, which I really do use everyday. It’s pretty, and food doesn’t stick to it. I would be lost in the kitchen without it!

  230. 235

    My coffee maker! I need this appliance to get anything done! :)

  231. 236

    now that i have one… my vitamix :)

  232. 237

  235. 240
  236. 241

    A microwave – I use it several times a day, everyday!

  237. 242

    I think my favorite would HAVE to be my rice cooker! I’d be lost without it.

  238. 243

    I can’t live without my microwave :O) but I’d love to buy a westbend popcorn popper!

  239. 244

    I’m with you- I love my toaster oven!

  240. 245

    It has to be my can opener! I’d be lost without it!

  241. 246

    I couldn’t live without my toaster — one of my favorite snacks/meals involves toast so I need it!

  242. 247

    Who fun giveaway! I cannot live without my super sharp Rachael Ray knives and oversized skillets for making stirfry and sauces. I need a wok badly!

  243. 248

    I definitely couldn’t live without my rice cooker!

    I love my ninja It will process just about anything !! It is great for smoothies ,and I use it for the cinnamon raisin almond balls except I use pecans instead ( I have 4 Pecan trees) FABULOUS!!!!!!

  245. 250

    Hi Anne! I have to agree with the toaster oven! I love toasted bread for sandwiches, or making toast for breakfast with peanut butter, jelly, or whatever. However, there are about a million more things I would LOVE to have in my kitchen, so this is an exciting giveaway! :-)

  246. 251

    My dear little microwave rocks the college dorm. I use it to make veggie soup, noodles, sweet potatoes and even fish!

  247. 252

    I couldn’t live without my awesome chopping knife! I use it multiple times a day.

  248. 253

    I love all of my cutco knives!!!

  249. 254

    I can’t live without my toaster. I use it every morning for toast and bagels.

  250. 255

    Definitely the microwave! :)

  251. 256
  252. 257

    I think probably a sharp knife.

  253. 258

    I cannot live without my coffeemaker.

  254. 259

    I love my grader. It’s great for veggies, spices and the cheese of course.

  255. 260

    DEFINITELY my coffee maker! it’s not super fabulous but i certainly need my coffee everyday:) case in point: yesterday i forgot to make coffee and ended up with a raging caffeine withdrawl headache! boo!

  256. 261

    Toaster oven all the way…I use it all the time – toasting up bread daily for lunch, re-heating pizza, roasting a small amount of veggies. LOVE IT!

  257. 262

    I couldn’t live without my toaster oven. It toasts bread / bagels, it melts cheese, it bakes cookies….in a pinch it is a space heater :)

  258. 263

    I tweeted!

  259. 264

    My flavor wave oven. Cook from frozen and all turns out good.

  260. 265

    I absolutely love my food processor…but, I would REALLY love a toaster oven!! From everyones’ comments it sounds like I need to get one :)

  261. 266


    I think my favorite kitchen gadget is my Santoku knife. I literally use it to chop up everything (unless its really small) and really couldn’t live without it. I also feed like I’m a Food Network star when I mince that garlic :)


  262. 267

    By far my favorite kitchen appliance is my coffee maker :) Look at all the things it does for me; creates a delicious smelling aroma in my home, morning and afternoon pick me up, antioxidants in the coffee it brews, heart health and blood vessel health from the coffee it brews, and of course the delicious beverage it creates in under 10 minutes. And it does all this with less than 2 minutes of work on my part :)

    my favorite kitchen appliance is prob my tea kettle. I’m on the search for a new one as i had to throw away my old one when I moved in July. i’ve been making hot water in my coffee maker and its just not the same. i need to hear that whistle.

    i tweeted this too!! I hope i win!!

  264. 269

    I could not live (well, happily anyway) without my Vitamix. I sometimes use it twice a day…love love love!

  265. 270

    I tweeted!!

  266. 271

    My Blendtec Blender is my favorite kitchen appliance…because I HAVE to have my green smoothies everyday!

  267. 272

    I wouldn’t want to live without my coffee maker. I guess I could get by but I’d be spending a lot of money at Dunkin Donuts!

  268. 273

    I love my mixing bowls! Perfect for so many kitchen tasks…especially now that I am trying many of your recipes! Even my husband enjoyed your vegan almond butter banana bars, and he usually swears off anything with ingredients he hasn’t heard of before!

  269. 274

    I tweeted!

  270. 275

    The one kitchen appliance I can not live with out sadly is my microwave. Being a busy Mom I reheat my coffee multiple times a day. I am lucky to get to the first sip before it gets cold.

  271. 276

    Crockpot. Use it every weekend, sometime both days.

  272. 277

    I must have my blender – I make yogurt smoothies for breakfast everyday!

  273. 278

    i definitely cannot operate without a good kitchen knife! i don’t know if that counts as an appliance but it’s my kitchen neccessity. As far as appliances go…i’d have to say my slow cooker is a huge lifesaver. How I love thee…

    The apartment looks awesome! Well, messy but…full of potential! I’m sure you’ll get it done soon enough! I love that chair-hangy-thing..

  274. 279

    Easy…my blender, I use it multiple times a day usually!

  275. 280

    I love my blender. It got a lot of use this summer. We have a late summer weather and when it came, it was hot hot hot! I used it almost everyday making smoothies for breakfast or fruit shakes after working out.

  276. 281

    I tweeted the giveaway. @Healthy_Coconut

  277. 282

    I wouldnt know what to do without my pots! They cook everything from my morning oats, to my lunchtime soup, to my dinner pasta. :)

  278. 283

    I can’t live without my mini-whisk. I use it everyday to whip up my banana oats. The best part is that I got it for free with some hot cocoa mix! I don’t think I’ve ever used it to make hot cocoa.

  279. 284

    Great Giveaway!
    I for one, could not live without my coffee maker….
    Coffee! Coffee! Coffee!

  280. 285

    Blender for soups and smoothies!! Love it!

  281. 286

    I could not live without my blender! I use it on a daily basis.

  282. 287

    I love my blender – but I could really use a new one! Thanks for the giveaway!

  283. 288

    My peeler! I always peel my carrots and apples (two of my favorite snacks), so my peeler gets a lot of use! Thanks for the giveaway!

  284. 289

    My knife set is crucial.

  285. 290

    I could not live without my Vita-Mix!

  286. 291

    I can’t live without my food processor! Fresh basil pesto anyone??? :)

  287. 292

    I’d have to say…my food processor!

  288. 293

    My vegetable peeler – zucchini “pasta” has become a staple this summer!

  291. 296

    My blender-gotta make those smoothies!!

  292. 297

    I don’t think I could live without my blender — green monster smoothies are my favorite!

  293. 298

    I absolutely cannot live without my food processor- sadly I just broke the grating attachment!!!
