{31 Days to a Functional Kitchen} Day 12: 5 Small Appliances

Yesterday I shared five of my favorite gadgets in the kitchen.  Today I want to share my favorite small appliances.  Having tools that make navigating mealtime easier is essential to any functional kitchen.

#1:  Cuisinart Immersion Blender
The versatility of this blender allows you to blend, whip and even chop using a small, easy to clean tool.  I have had other immersion blenders but I love the additional attachments available with the Cuisinart.
Bed Bath & Beyond

#2:  Hamilton Beach Electric Griddle
Great for pancakes, sandwiches, quesadillas, eggs and more.
 #3:  Keurig B70 Coffee Maker
I SWEAR this is my lifeline each morning.  The Keurig makes a single cup of coffee with no waste, hot every time and ready in about a minute.  I especially like this model from Costco as it comes with the $20 reusable filter plus 60 K-cups, all for less than any other store.  Additionally, the return policy at Costco is amazing if you ever have issues with your machine.

#4:  KitchenAid Stand Mixer
This one is on my wish list.  I hope to own one of these some day.  The power and versatility of this machine can be used for both baking and cooking.


#5:  Crock Pot Slow Cooker
I recently replaced my slow cooker and went with this one.  I love the size of the bowl which is great for roasts.  I still have my old slow cooker which was taller and was nice for soups, stews, chili, etc but was almost impossible to use for larger pieces of meat.
