I'm sure that there are many of us out there that suffer from 'Gadgetitus', but what is your favourite - must have - gadget? I don't mean your most used one.
Mine is a cream maker, Many years ago I bought a Bels Cream Maker and found it very useful, now I have just acquired a Kenwood cream maker, the thing is there are times when I need cream (either whipping or double) and don't have it in; and it's not always possible to pop to the shops to get some - but I always have unsalted butter and milk in the fridge so I can make it.
So what's yours? is it a simple bean stringer or something really big, heavy and exotic.

Mine's my recently purchased, Delia-recommended, Kenwood mini-chopper. I love it! It makes chopping garlic and ginger for curries so easy, and turns whole tomatoes into 'mush' for dips and sauces (no longer any need to peel). Making cucumber raita is now as simple as chucking a lump of cuke in the mini chopper, then adding the result plus some spices to yoghurt :) Totally brilliant thing, it is - and was cheap, too!

Completely agree DG. I love my mini chopper, simple to use and easy to clean. Makes breadcrumbs in a jiffy, chops nuts and herbs , even small quantities, brilliantly. Wouldn't be without it. Got one in holiday home too!

Love my Magimix food processor.
And my huge ice cream maker.
And my very ancient breadmaker.
Love my best knives.
Love my marble rolling pin.
Love my potato peeler.
Love my Bekenal piping nozzles.
And I applaud my dishwasher & microwave ...
Hated the yoghurt maker (pointless).
Hated the electric knife (Can now cut wonky slices at high speed ...)
Hate the potato ricer (hard work - I have the white plastic version from Lakeland - awkward - and irritating to wash too.)

This is a dangerous thread for me to be looking at. My mind is already going down the minichopper route.

I have a French SEB cheese maker which I use once in a blue moon, but would be sad to lose.
I really like my bamix type thing.
Magimix food processor.
I have a favourite wooden spoon!

Deep fat fryer has been used once. Ditto icecream maker.
Haven't used the sandwich toaster in years.

Not to tempt you further, but discovered a new thing to do with my mini-chopper last night.

Put 1 tomato, quartered, 1" piece of spring onion, about 1/4" of fresh garlic, a couple of chunks of green pepper, and a bit of fresh coriander into the chopper together with a couple of 1" cubes of cheddar and whizz.

Fry a tortilla in a pan with a light coating of olive oil (I used chilli and jalapeno flavoured ones from Lidl) on one side whilst topping it with the mix from the mini-chopper. Plop a second tortilla on top, flip the whole thing over and cook until the bottom tortilla's gone crispy.

Turn out on to a plate, slice into 4 and munch - more or less instant quesadilla :)

I love my Burger Press.

I love my Veg peeler (zyliss one).

I love my mini chopper.

I really LURVE my morphy richards blender that i won on here - so much so i went and brought a load of matching items.

Oh and also the thing i would replace in a heart beat - is my *Microplaner*.

My KitchenAid mixer is my most loved and least used gadget!
It makes me feel good just looking at it and it's also an excellent machine - when I use it.
I agree about Microplane graters, I use them every day and find then invaluable. Especially good for garlic as there is no need to peel the garlic first.

Coffee roaster

I am obsessed with my new gadget, a coffee bean roaster. Now we can enjoy our coffee freshly ground AND freshly roasted and it tastes divine. I will never go back to buying coffee beans from a store. I have purchased green beans from 7 different locations in Africa and S. America as well as Vietnam and now I am truly hooked!
