Oooh! New kitchen gadgets!

I finally went shopping recently with some of the gift card money my mother in law sent for my birthday (yes, that was in fact nearly a month and a half ago and I'm just now getting around to using it). We didn't get to use up all of the gift cards yet, so stay tuned for more shopping pictures... but we did go to Bed Bath and Beyond for shiny new kitchen gadgets!

After browsing for a bit, I decided to pass on the chocolate fondue fountain (awesome, but not particularly useful) and went for the kitchen scale instead.

Yes, we chose this one based mostly on price. Not going to lie.

I haven't used it for anything yet, but I'm pretty pumped. :) It makes me think of the year I worked in the inorganic chemistry stockroom at BYU, when I would have to measure out piles of white powder for nefarious purposes for all the Chem 107 students. I think this one will have a little tamer life than those scales.

We also had a little money left over so I got some whisks that have that nifty coating on the whisk part so that they don't scratch up your non-stick pans. Hooray! Now I won't worry about eating teflon anymore!

What are some absolutely essential items in your kitchen?


  1. I never like to be without a good set of liquid measuring cups. I also would severely miss a bread machine or a stand mixer with a dough hook. It makes making pizza or rolls extremely easy.

  2. Custard cups...measuring cups with 2/3 and 3/4 sizes...silicone rubber scrapers...electric citrus juicer. I'm with Ryan on the stand mixer!

  3. Black plastic spatulas that you can buy at Target for $1. A 3/4 cup measure. And good knives. No, scratch that. Awesome knives. :-)

  4. My Bosch is by far my most prized kitchen appliance. I also like to have LOTS of rubber scrapers on hand, and pretty much everything you all mentioned is high up on my list...

  5. Probably my blender, what with my daily use of it. Though I am also pretty much in love with the stand mixer that I DON'T have. :) Someday. Until then, I'll keep getting really buff wrists from kneading.
