      My favorite kitchen gadget is my blender. I use it every day.

    • Alex

      My Favorite tool is my big kitchenaid mixer. Since I love to cook and have five kids I can easily make large batches of almost anything including bread. I apparently am a total failure at kitchen shortcuts and gadgets perpetually messing up bread maker bread, burning microwave popcorn and other such notable incidents I really only use essential things such as giant spatula thingies.

      Since I am a French professor if I had a show I would name it MMM… C’est Bon! the simplest yet most telling compliment one can get in a kitchen.

      My favorite gadget is definitely my “Handy Scraper” made by Pampered Chef. It’s great for tranferring chopped food easily to your bowl or pan (its official purpose), but I love to use it for cutting my bread dough into small portions for dinner rolls. After you’ve used it for cutting the dough, it’s also good for scraping up the flour-doughy from your work surface.

      I love my garlic press! I would love this basket!

    • Angie

      My fav kitchen gadget is… the drink stirrer!

    • Angie

      My favorite gadget in the kitchen is the cheese grator. I love grated cheese on everything. Yummy!
      If I had a cooking show it would be called ” Angie cooking fast and having a blast”.

    • Catrina

      One of my favorite kitchen gadgets is the hand held lemon squeezer thing. (Not sure of the technical name)

    • vicky

      abercrombiechik63@yahoo.com

    • Fern

      My favorite kitchen gadget is the potato peeler. I use it all the time and not just on potatos.

      Nikki Rose

    • Katie

      My favorite kitchen gadget is my wine opener!

    • Bethany Terrell

      My favorite kitchen gadget is my measuring cups- just because I use them all the time!!!

    • Joy

      I have an awesome potato peeler that I love, love, love! My husband spent a fortune on it years ago when I sent him out to buy a peeler after my other one broke. I almost passed out when he brought it home. But now I’ve kissed him for it a hundred times! :-)

    • Carrol Herrin

      Favorite kitchen tool is my Pampered Chef Food Chopper. Makes chopping quick and fun.

    • Lisa

      My favorite kitchen gadget is my ice cream scooper that takes the heat from your hand and makes the ice cream scoop easier.

    • Marianne

      My favorite kitchen gadget is the potato peeler!

    • Kim

      My favorite kitchen gadget by far is this plastic hand cutter contraption. I don’t even know what it’s called, but I’m fairly certain that it’s supposed to be a pizza cutter (not the kind with the wheel). It looks similar to a dough cutter only the edge is a bit more rounded off. It cuts pizzas (of any thickness), sandwichs, veggies, and even steak!!! It’s perfect for cutting up pretty much anything my 2 year old loves to eat that otherwise would be too big. It’s the greatest stocking stuffer I’ve ever received!!! <3

    • If I had a cooking show, I would name it “Twice the taste, half the cost” or “Twice as nice for half the price” That would be my slogan. I would teach young women (and men!) that you do not have to make a lot of money to make a delicious meal. I would tell them tips on buying on sale and using coupons of course, and also I will show them how to make two meals out of leftovers in a creative way. Like if you make meatloaf on Tuesday, you can make tacos, spaghetti and meat sauce, or even sloppy joes on Wednesday from the leftover meat (which I do quite often!). The twice the taste is for two reasons. One being that it will taste twice as good because you made it yourself and know what went into it, and because you are using the food twice, on two separate days, for two different meals! I actually have thought about this many times but I haven’t had the courage to get started!

    • Shannon

      My Kitchen Aid mixer!!! ;)

    • carole

      Fave kitchen gadget: microplaner!! I love nutmeg :-)

    • Curi

      I love being in the kitchen so it’s hard to narrow down my favorite gadgets… probably the heat-resistant spoonula and my kitchen-aid stand mixer!

    • My favorite kitchen gadget is an Oxo good grips fat separator. I can make delicious and nearly fat free stock. The fat floats to the top, and the broth is poured out the spout which has its opening at the bottom of the separator. Speaking of stock, when I serve chicken, I put a “bone bowl” on the table for everyone to put their chicken bones into. Later, I boil the bones for a delicious stock. It sounds a little gross until you think about that boiling anything sterilizes it, so why not? I actually heard the editor of a gourmet food magazine say in a radio talk show that she does that!

    • Stacy

      My favorite cooking gadget is my garlic press….I loooooove garlic….LOL!!

    • Lisa G

      It is a toss-up between my pizza cutter and my kitchen shears, if I can’t cut something with one of them, the other usually works.

    • My favorite kitchen gadget is my GE hand mixer from the 1970s. My mom would let me help her in the kitchen when I was little and using the mixer was my favorite thing to do and now my children get to help me using that same harvest gold mixer.Its still running strong.

    • Donna

      fav kitchen gadget=blender- gotta love smoothies!

      My favorite gadget is my Tupperware Quick Chef. I make everything in it- salsa, cheesecake, all kinds of dips, etc.. If I had a cooking show I would call it “Brandi’s Basics”. I love to good with basic items and add my personal touch to it! Thanks.

    • Mandy

      My favorite kitchen gadget is a lemon/lime juicer I got as with a wedding gift card from William Sonoma. It has a place for half of either a lemon or a lime and you just close the handle and squeeze. It gets so much juice out without the seeds!

    • I *heart* my KitchenAid mixer that I got for Christmas. Revoluntionized my cooking!

      I’d name a show the Shortcut Cook because I’m all about shortcuts!

    • Bethany

      My favorite kitchen gadget is my pizza cooking stone. Pampered Chef sells them, but I found mine on sale at a department store. I cook everything on it, bisquits, cookies, chicken, and pizza of course. I love it because everything gets cooked evenly the bottoms never get burned. Nobody likes burned bisquit bottoms!!!

    • amy L

      not a huge gadget fan BUT i love my icecream scooper

    • Terrica

      My favorite gadget is my zester-microplane!! It is so easy and lightweight!!

    • If I did have a cooking show it would have to be called ” It’s a Miracle” because it would be a miracle if I didn’t burn or ruin dinner.

    • Andrea

      Food Chopper and microplane zester. Couldn’t live without them. And always a good knife.

    • Rose

      I love my big mixer…I use it for everything!

    • My favorite kitchen tool are my Cutco knives and my plastic spatula scrapers! I couldn’t live without them!!

    • Heather

      The kitchen gadget that I can not live without is one that I begged for as a present for years. My husband finally gave in and bought me a Kitchen Aid Mixer about 3 years ago. He said that he thought that it would gather dust. Needless to say it does not!!! But we did gain weight from all the pound cakes I made.:)

      My favortie kitchen gadgets are my spatulas and woodens spoons … LOVE LOVE LOVE THEM! Use them everyday!

    • Brandi

      Fave in the kitchen is my great grandmother’s cast iron skllet, I cook everything in it! But as far as “real” gadget I would have to say my crockpots…yes, Plural, I have 7 of them. I use them several times a week for everything. I love to entertain and I love to have everything cooking in them while I am doing other stuff with my guest. Since I am always in the kitchen with a cupof coffee in my hand…(I drink 4 pots a day) wuld have to call my show…the caffeinated cooker…LOL

    • tricia

      My favorite is my heat resistant tongs. I use them for flipping meat on the grill, lifting fries out of the fryer, etc.

    • Cathy

      My cooking show would be Ma’s Mixes.

      My favorite kitchen gadget is my crockpot. I cook meals in it at least 3 times per week!

    • Cathy

      My favorite kitchen gadget is my little Black and Decker food chopper.

    • Cassandra

      purex measuring cup

    • Josh

      My favorite tool is the tomato peeler. I really like to eat tomato sandwiches when tomatoes are in season. However, I don’t like the skin so I would always end up destroying the tomato as I tried to peel it. With my tomato peeler now that does not happen. Thank you again for all your hard work!

    • mary

      My favorite gadget is Cutco kitchen scissors. I use these for everything in the kitchen and around the house.

    • My favorite kitchen gadget, hands down, is an immersion blender. I use it for baby food, smoothies, and a quick pulse to get my red beans and rice just a bit creamy the way my husband likes!

    • Philip

      A really good Cutco knife I use to trim meats before I get to grillin’.

    • Becky

      My favorite kitchen tool is my egg slicer. I use it to slice strawberries and it’s much faster! :)

    • Amy

      Favorite Kitchen Gadget is my Kitchenaid Mixer. You can do everything with it. It even kneads Marshmallow Fondant which is a wrist saver <3.

    • brandy

      My favorite kitchen gadget is the little square silicone scraper thingy that comes with Pampered Chef stoneware to scrape the food off with. It’s pure genius.

    • Elizabeth

      My favorite kitchen gadget is my mini spatula. I use it for cookies, brownies–basically everything that has to come off a pizza stone or out of my 13×9 pan!

      Not sure what I would name my cooking show. Everybody uses their name in their cooking show, but I would love to name it something cool like “The Iron Chef” (of course, I know that name is already taken). Maybe something like “Sweets Made Simple”. I love baking, so maybe that would be direction I would head!

      Thanks Jenny! Love your site! It’s invaluable!

    • My favorite kitchen gadgets are my Pampered Chef mixing bowls with lids. I love to prepare things in advance and these make it soooo easy!

    • Gina

      I think i would name my cooking show cooking for dummimes!! not that any mom (or dad) who is providing for their family is, but sometimes i feel like i need to be led by the hand and told to do step a, step b, step c….. especially after working a 12 hour day then coming home to feed the fam!!!

    • Maehing O

      My favorite kitchen gadget has to be the big rubber bands that are free on broccoli and asparagus! I ALWAYS save them and use them for many things like: keeping my coupon binder closed, wrapping around an open bag of chips, open snack food, cracker bags, nuts, bread if I loose the twisty tie, binding magazines, and tying my hair back when I forget my scruchie upstairs….you name it! Its the best thing going! My second best is a clotes pin, serves the same purpose except the hair thing!

    • Cassie J.

      My favorite cooking item in my kitchen is my spatula. I use it for everything. Would love to win your prize! Thanks!

    • Maehing O

      Oh yeah,,, I’d name my cooking show Maehing’s Yummie Things… after my name and the fact that I do make yummie things! I use to bake cakes and my cars read” Maehing’s Pretty Things”, but I ran out of time to do that too! :) Thanks for the contest and all the great couponing things! I just love, love, love this site!

    • My Kitchen Aid mixer is the best kitchen tool and birthday present ever, hands down!

    • Stacy

      If I had a cooking show, it would be named “Nothing like your Mama’s, but That’s OK”!!! I always feel bad that I don’t cook the food like my Mom and MIL make, but I choose to eat healthier. And the two just don’t mix!

    • Laura

      My favorite gadget is my Le Creuset silicone whisk. It works well, cleans up easy, and doesn’t scratch my nonstick pans. The icing on the cake is that I got it as a free gift ($20 reg price) for doing my wedding registry at a department store!

    • Heather

      my favorite gadget is the mandoline slicer. It helps make homemade chips, great veggies for dipping etc.. I love it and use it a lot.

    • Lauren

      My favorite kitchen tools are my chef’s knife, my microplane grater, and cheap paper plates and newspapers. The first two are obvious. I use cheap paper plates to prep my twins’ meals, breakfast especially. Buttering toast, cutting up strawberries, etc. Newspapers…I spread out layers of newspapers on a clean counter before preparing dinner — or any other meal that involves meat or other greasy or juicy things. When it’s time to clean up, I roll it up and throw it away, then do a quick wipe. Reuses our papers and makes cleanup so, so much easier.

    • Stephanie

      My favourite kitchen gadget is my milk shake maker. Great for cheering me up.

    • Kelly

      I would say my “spoonula” as Rachael Ray calls it, is my favorite!

      spice grinder

    • Alyssa

      Favorite kitchen gadget – old fashioned apple corer. All the new ones core AND slice, but this one just takes the core out. My kiddos love to eat whole/”hole” apples!

    • marcey

    • mary

      My favorite gadget is having hubby in the kitchen to help with everything. LOL

    • Michelle

      My favorite kitchen gadget is the garlic press/slicer.

    • Mina

      My favorite gadget is my instant read digital thermometer/timer with a magnetic back so that I can keep it on the side of fridge where it never gets lost. Finally! I have an accurate thermometer that can be used in the oven, in candy making, and even to check out the temperature inside the refrigerator. The loud timer is a bonus that saves my meals from being charred by a too frequently distracted mom. I’m not someone who gets excited about electronic doodads, but I’ve grown dependent on this one ever since I splurged and bought it for myself as a gift.

    • Jasmine

      My favorite gadget is my can opener that opens cans without leaving a sharp edge. I have had my fair share of “can cuts”! With small children around, it has been a must for me!

    • Jennifer

      My favorite (judging by the fact that it is always dirty) is my cheese slicer.

    • My favorite gadget is my toaster oven. It has been great to use instead of a hot oven in the summer.

    • Stephanie

      My favorite kitchen gadget is, hands down, my silicone spatulas from Tupperware. I use them to cook on the stove, to spread icing, to mix batter and scrape the last bits of food from a jar. But, best of all, they entertain my 1yo while I am cooking! :)

    • Beth C

      My favorite kitchen gadget is a mellon baller. Looks so pretty to make watermelon, cantaloupe and honeydew melon balls to put into an attractive watermelon “basket”. Truth is I’m a kitchen gadget person and it is so hard to pick just one. I also love my kitchen shears and various spatulas and measuring utensils! We love Betty Crocker and Southern Savers!

    • Amanda

      My favorite gadget is my egg slicer also works great on fruit…we use it for breakfast every morning.

    • Krystal

      My favorite kitchen gadget is definitely my milkshake mixer. Throughout high school I worked in an old-fashioned ice cream soda shop, and I love knowing how to make perfect milkshakes, egg cream sodas, and ice cream sodas. As a college student living in a dorm, cooking in a community kitchen can be kind of tough, but I love being able to mix up shakes for anyone who wants one as a study treat!

      If I had a cooking show, it would be all about desserts. I’d call it “Any Room for Dessert?”

    • Leigh

    • Hmmmm…. my cooking show would be called ’10 items or less”.
      I’m a pretty simple cook, but we never go hungry here, especially now that I’m a Southern Saver!

    • Kimberly W.

      What?? just one favorite…I guess it would be my silicone baking mat (from Tupperware.) or my spatulas and whisks. No, I’ll go with my mats.

      If I had a cooking show, I would call it From the Heart. If you don’t love it while you make it, it just doesn’t taste the same.

    • Gabby

      My favorite “tool” has to be parchment paper. I love watching cooking shows now for all the great tips they give, like using parchment paper. I really wish I had known more about this before (I kinda did, but hadn’t really paid attention), or I wouldn’t have so many ruined baking pans. Parchment paper makes things so much easier now!

    • Kelly

      I love, love, love my slow cooker. As a stay at home mom of 3 little girls things can get pretty crazy. It’s such a relief on those days to know that dinner is already cooking away. Thanks for the contest and Southern Savers!

      My show would be called “Cookin with whatcha got”, cause I tend to do this a few nights a week after realizing I have no plan.

    • Favorite kitchen gadget … spatulas! Helps mommy cook and helps baby teethe!

    • Tanya

      If I had my own cooking show it would be named after the old saying “A month of Sundays”.

It would include the whole family pitching in to help so most days of the week we could spend less time cooking and more time playing!

      Hey Allie! Like the name of your show, but I doubt that you HAVE any dinner disasters =)

      My show would be called “Plates for Every Palate.”

      Glad to see that I have some garlic press buddies on here =) I LOVE being able to use fresh garlic whenever it fits the meal . . . and it only takes 10-15 seconds. Even if the whole meal isn’t from scratch, I still feel very gourmet-ish if I can throw in some fresh garlic!

    • Crystal Leight

      I think that my favorite kitchen gadget would be my bamboo spoons. They are great to use in anything because they don’t scratch my pots and pans and they are stain resistant. I use them everyday.

    • My favorite kitchen gadget is … my George Foreman grill. Not only does it cook some great burgers and chicken, my kids love their grilled sandwiches and quesadillas.

    • Melissa

      I don’t know what I’d do without my toaster oven. I could use it to help with every meal – the frozen waffle at breakfast, pizza rolls after school, garlic bread or fish sticks with dinner…

    • Erin

      My favorite kitchen gadget is my timer lol. Without it, everything would be burnt!

    • Amy D

      Clearly my favorite kitchen gadget is my cookie scoop! Perfectly proportioned cookies! Love it!

    • Amanda

      My favorite gadget is my blender. I have to have it to make my smoothies!

    • Jackie

      Bread machine, hands down! Makes bread, rolls, dough and anything else I can think of. Homemade pizza and bread tastes yummy, is better for you and cheaper.

    • Heather B.

      my favorite kitchen gadget is definitely my kitchen aid stand mixer. i use it every day for just about everything, and i love it!

    • Katie

      My favorite gadgets are my pampered ice cream scoop and pampered chef mini spatula!!! They are the best!!!

    • mandysaves

      my favorite kitchen gadget is not really a gadget. it’s an old blue heaven chop plate. i found it in an antique mall one weekend with my mom and it reminded me of the dishes my grandmother used to have. now it is displayed on a plate rack in my kitchen to help give me the inspiration to be the great cook my grandmother was.

    • Brittany

      My favorite kitchen gadget is my food processor. Lve it!

    • Lindsay

      My favorite Gadget is my Husband. Since he is the cook.
      If I were to have a cooking show-
      It WOULD be called- “What not to cook”
      I’m sure it would also be on comedy central.

    • Holly Robertson

      My favorite kitchen gadget is definitely my apple/potato peeler. I made apple crisp for Easter and was reminded of my appreciation for it. Thanks!

    • Jen

      My favorite kitchen gadget is my pizza stone, I swear pizza taste better when cooked on it!

    • Christina

      Betty Crocker has great recipes! My favorite gadget is my Racheal Ray knife.

    • EKay

      If I could have my own show, I’d name it ‘A Bun in the Oven.’ It would be a program designed by the pregnant cook, for the pregnant cook. And we all know how much pregnant women love to eat! (I should know) :)

    • Jenifer

      My husband and I have a running joke…normal people just “prepare” dinner, but with my great cooking skills and tendency to multitask, I am constantly “repairing” food that I have burned, over seasoned, overcooked, etc. with all sorts of neat tricks I’ve picked up along the way. My favorite trick is adding a potato to soak up salt in any dish. I frequently make crock pot dishes and add salt to season but end up using way too much with all the other salty ingredients like soup packets and the potato trick takes it right out!

      So, my cooking show would have to be “How to Repair Food”

    • Amy h.

      My favorite gadget is the adjustable measuring spoon-very convenient and space saving. Thanks for the giveaway!

    • Eunice

      My favorite kitchen gadget is potato/vegie peeler, can’t live without it. And If I could have my own show, I will name it: “one Minute” because I told my kids that all the time when they are hungry

    • Shannon N.

      My favorite gadget is the olive pitter. We eat a lot of lebanese olives and that thing makes it a snap and they still look pretty!

    • srtasa

      my favorite kitchen gadget is my Rubbermaid spatula

    • Martha

      My favorite kitchen gadget is my stand mixer. Thank you

    • Cheryl in AL

      I am obsessively in love with Parchment paper. My second fav item is chopsticks. they have so many uses.

    • My favorite gadget is the food chopper. Its great for smelly oninons, chopping up spaghetti for my 2 year old and so much more.

    • Beth in SC

      My favorite kitchen gadgets are my Pampered Chef Twixit bag clips. I use them everyday!

    • Michelle B.

      My husband and I need all the cooking help we can get as new parents; therefore, we would call it “These Beginners need the Betty Crocker Touch.”

    • Heather

      I love my Pampered Chef cheese grater!

    • Amy

      My favorite kitchen gadget is my spoon-ula. My cooking show would be called “Cooking with Kids”.

    • Lisa

      My favorite kitchen gadget is my spatula that lets me get every drop out of cans and jars while cooking. I don’t waste anything using it.

      I’ve told my friends if I had a TV show I would call it, “The Pantry Princess.” I can go into almost any family pantry and find a quick and tasty meal from the stock on the shelves.

    • Kelly W.

      My favorite kitchen tool is my kitchen shears. I found them on sale for $1 and got them for all of my family for Christmas! I use them for everything from opening packages to cutting up food for my 2 yr old.

    • My Favorite Kitchen Gadget is my cheese slicer. Anytime the brick of cheese is out, all the kids wants some. And I hate cutting cheese with a regular knife.

    • scott

      zip-lock bag…great for filling deviled eggs and frosting a cupcake. just fill bag with filling or frosting…seal it…and cut off about 1/4 inch of corner , squeeze and fill. can do 24 deviled eggs in less than 30 sec.

    • Diane

      My favorite kitchen gadget is my Braun immersion blender. I can puree tomatoes right in the can before I add them to a dish. This has stopped so much whining from my children who don’t like chunky tomatoes in their chili or spaghetti sauce! I use my immersion blender all the time, and the best part is that I only paid 50 cents for it at a yard sale!

    • Elena

      My fav.would have to be my measuring spoons!!! I am not good with eyeballing!!!

    • tamara

      pampered chef kitchen scissors! one of the only tools you need in the house!

    • My favorite cooking “gadget” are my hands! You often don’t need to spend money on gadgets to do what you can do with your own 2 hands! If I had a cooking show, being a Food Network FANATIC that I am, I think I’d name it after my new upcoming website, Making Cents, for short, and tell others ways to stretch their food budget to make tasty, inexpensive meals. Inexpensive on the FN isn’t always within your everyday budget as it is now.

    • Adell

      I’m kind of boring. My favorite cooking gadget are measuring cups because I use them so often. Silly, I know.

    • Tracy Marlow

      I love my set of Chicago Cutlery knives. I find that slicing and dicing by hand beats chopper or processor but one MUST have a good set of knives!

    • my favorite kitchen gadget is my pampered chef garlic press. I love it and use it all the time!

    • Crista

      Hope I’m not too late to enter!

      The name of my show would be “The Messy Mad Woman Cooking Show”

    • CindyLouWho

      I love my stone baking dish!

    • Amy F

      I love my Kitchenaid stand mixer!

    • Billy

      My favorite kitchen gadget is a can opener, and my show would be called- easy does it- you too can cook

    • cindy

      my favorite gadget is the pizza cutter!

    • My favorite gadget is my spatula because I can get up to another cupcake or muffin out of the bowl. My MIL bought us a blade with a wooden handle in a wooden bowl from Alaska and my husband loves it. He chops nuts and everything he can with it. He is starting to annoy me wanting to chop things. Oh, another gadget I love is my Tupperware hamburger press. It makes uniform burgers.

    • Alice

      My favorite gadget is my hand food processor/mixer for making baby food or smoothies, mixing. It’s just wonderful!

    • What a great basket! I can’t live without my little chopper. I love to throw nuts and everything else in there and have chopped fine little pieces at the push of a button – without the mess of a regular sized food processor!

    • My favorite gadget is definitely my egg separator! I eat egg white omelets all the time and would be lost without it. If I had my own cooking show, it would be called “Southern Comfort” – I’d like to have a restaurant named that too :-)

    • Kathi

      My cooking show would be called Simply Southern. It would be focused on simple, southern recipes and lots of humor.

    • Amy B.

      My favorite kitchen gadget is my chopper. I don’t cry over onions any more.
