Show and Tell Saturdays- Kitchen Gadget

Welcome to Show and Tell Saturdays. This is where you get to show and tell about whatever the theme is for the week and then come back here and link up your post. Today's theme is all about your favorite kitchen gadget. When Melissa picked this one I quickly thought of my favorite gadget and then another and then another. So I didn't end up picking just one. I had to pick the ones that I LOVE to use in my kitchen and wouldn't want to do without.
The first gadget is my Vita-Mix Machine. This thing slices and dices,purees and chops and will also balance your checkbook. But wait there's more, act now and get a free set of Ginsu Knives! LOL. Okay sorry I got carried away. I think I've seen one to many Infomercials. But it is a WONDERFUL tool in my kitchen. I linked up the website in case you ever wanted to check out what it can do. I also got the dry blender container to grind wheat with. That comes in handy when making your own bread. I admit it is an investment but well worth the money.

My next gadget is my Kitchen Aid Mixer. This thing kneads dough, whips up cream and meringue, cookie and cake batters are no match for this baby. And if we ever come into some money we can get the attachments for this as well. My parents actually got this for me for Christmas 2 years ago and I LOVE it. Again I linked to the website so you can check out the features. They purchased this one at Sam's Club so it was waaaaaaay cheaper than buying online.

Okay this next thing, I absolutely love making burgers on. They come out so juicy. It's the George Foreman Grill. I know I know but I really do love it. I cook my homemade sausage patties on here and my turkey burgers and they always come out perfect. Fast and easy. Just what I like.

These next two things are pretty indispensable at our home. First is my coffee maker and the second is our handy dandy coffee grinder. I had to add them as they are used just about every day. Well the coffee maker is used every day!! Oh yeah!! Woo Hoo!!

This almost feels like a Works for Me Wednesday post! LOL. Are you still with me or did I loose you at the Vita-Mix. I love to hear about what kitchen gadgets people "really" use. Because I know of some gadgets that just sit in a cupboard somewhere and never see the light of day. Well I'm here to tell you that these fellas see daylight ALL THE TIME!!
I've been known to compare my kitchen to a man's workshop. You gotta have the right tools to do the job. Don't you agree? My husband could totally relate to that and I think shortly after that I got my Vita-Mix. LOL. He was tired of me blowing out cheap "tools"!!

Well there you have it! My favorite most favorite gadgets. Now I'm off to see what you all came up with as your favorites.
Have a great weekend!!!


  1. I love your gadgets! My sister grinds her own wheat to make flour forbread. I am impressed with all your goodies.

  2. The kitchenaid and coffee pot are two of my faves, too! :D LOL!

    I've heard lots of great things about the Vitamix. :D

  3. I don't have a Vitamix, but it looks awesome. I don't have time to get out my gadgets, dust them off and strategically place them on a clean counter (cause I am a purfectionist). So, I'll just list my fav's here: Whispermill - grain grinder, Champion juicer, Kitchen-aid in Martha Stewart mint green, tortilla press, rice cooker, meat grinder and my husband wants a meat slicer too. He's getting it for his b-day.

  4. I recognize the coffee maker! lol
    Happy Saturday, my friend!

  5. Kim, love your gadgets! Thanks again for this week, this such fun :) My goodness, you had me laughing with your description of your Vita-mix! too funny! Have a great weekend!

  6. You've got some handy gadgets there! We recently purchased a juicer and have been trying it out. I use lots of Pampered Chef gadgets like the garlic press, bamboo spoons, and food chopper. If I get some pictures taken, I may link up and join in the meme. :)

  7. I used my GF grill all the time... till I cooked salmon on it and never could get the fish smell out. *sigh*

    I'm saving my farthings for a KitchenAid. Maybe I should ge a Vita-Mix first... for Duller who needs HELP with that checkbook thing. LOL!

    Have a JESUS-filled day! ^i^

  8. You have excellent gadgets my friend! I love my mixer too, but I think I need a few more items now that I see all of yours - LOL!!

    Sorry - we were gone all day - I just finally posted mine!

    Weekend HUGS!! :)

  9. We've been sick so I'm just getting back to my blog home:). I LOVE my kitchen-aid too (it's cobalt blue:) ) I have a lot of little gadgets-my newest one is a nut grinder from William sonoma-it's great!! May you have a blessed weekend:) Amanda

  10. I would have to choose my Kitchen Aid mixer too. I can't make all those cupcakes without it:-) I mean, I could...but I don't want to:-)

  11. I love my VitaMix and KA mixer too! Both mine are white and I wish now I had gotten/requested black, but oh well. They are awesome appliances.
