What is she doing squeezing an entire lemon that isn't halved, into a cast iron skillet? WHAT IS SHE DOING?!?!?!?!?

I am finding it difficult to believe she is actually cooking anything at all.

miss diminutive: [kissthecookonline.com image 500x500]

Loves me my mortar and pestle.

Makes me feel like some kind of alchemist.


Loves mines too.  I use it even when it isn't entirely necessary.  I cackle when I use it the same way I cackle when I eat Bugles and put them on my fingertips --  all witchy and errythang.

DGS: Purelilac: I'm not into kitchen gadgets, but I do like my Ninja if I have to fine chop a shiatload of veggies.

LlamaGirl: Immersion blender.

If you make soups or sauces, they are amaaaaaaaaazing tools.
I like to use mine to make fancy scarmbly eggs as well.

Heh, I have a Ninja immersion blender that separated out so the motor can be attached to a standard blender. First thing I thought of. And you both beat me to it. Love this thing. So useful.

I have a Cuisinart immersion blender like that Ninja.  It's amazing how many people ask me what it is when I'm making dinner for company.  I mutter "boat motor" and proceed to puree the hell out of something.  It's also great for emulsifying things right in a cooking pot.  And the chopper bin attachment is perfect of small batches of nuts etc.  I use that thing at least twice a week.

Otherwise, I need some sort of a Crock Pot, nothing can substitute for a good slow cooker.

And in good weather, I just forgo the kitchen altogether and resort to this:

Private_Citizen: cgraves67: Private_Citizen: Apple slicer. If you like apples, you want one of these:

We use ours for pears also and I even managed to wedge a pineapple too.

Wow! How hard did you have to push to get it through a pineapple?

Toaster oven - My wife cooks more in that than in the regular oven
Ice cream scoop - Perfect for portioning out pancakes, cupcakes, and other such things
Ice pick - because sometimes the best way to solve a problem is just to stab it
Instant hot-water spout on my sink - we go through literally gallons of tea in a month, and who wants to wait for water to boil?  Also handy for instant oatmeal, heating baby bottles, and many other uses

Nestchick: My dishwasher. After (many) years of living without one, I finally moved into a place that has one about a year and half ago. It is so nice to speed up the clean-up!

And my kitchen also has a garbage disposal, which I find handy. First place I've ever lived to have one.

Don't really go in for gadgets. Occasionally I'll use the food processor. I use the whisk and tongs a lot, along with the flexible cutting boards that have been mentioned upthread.


If i'm renting a place that doesn't have a garbage disposal I install a cheap builder grade "badger" if it is on city sewer I leave it when I move, if its on septic i take it with me so the landlord doesn't know it was me that caused him to spend 5K having that farker dug up.

Aren't most cutting boards in the shape of Colorado, or is that the joke?

Purelilac: DGS: flucto: big-ass enameled cast iron pots with lids

We recently got an enameled cast-iron dutch oven. 5 qt I think. It's fantastic.. finally wifey can make plov. And I did duck legs for the first time. Being able to cook and then transition a pot straight to the oven is sweet.

Headline said not vessels, but I adore my cast iron and enameled cast iron cookware.


Submitter is not the boss of me.
