cooking tools

Pin It

I got my Chef's Catalog in the mail this week. Le Sigh!

While I'm thinking of it, here's my kitchen tool wishlist:

KitchenAid Immersion blender
. I've been wishing for this for probably 4 years. I have only a few recipes that I would use it on, so it seems a little impractical.

Thinking of impractical: The KitchenAid Ice Cream maker attachment.

Knife set. Honestly, I'm torn between Wusthof Classic and Henckels Twin Pro S, as both have good reviews in Consumer Reports. I'm waiting until I can get to a place that offers all the knives I'm considering so I can test out the feel of the knives in my hand.

Waffle maker. And I thought that an immersion blender was impractical. Still. Waffles!

Cuisinart Food Processor. Awesomeness.

Vitamix. Just because. Surely the fact that I recently overheated the motor on my current (not-near-so-high-powered) blender would suggest I need an upgrade. Right?

And a Toaster. Yes, nothing fancy, but I haven't had a toaster since mine died before I moved (so, like 7 months?) and I don't want a cheap toaster like we had before.

oooh - i want a vitamix too! i also want a cusinart food processor maybe when my current one dies? ha!

i can tell you the immersion blender is a thing of beauty. even if you just use it once in awhile, it doesn't take up much space. :)

as for an ice cream maker, i have one that i love. let me know if you want more details. it was $40 and works like a dream. i have the pasta attachment for my kitchen-aid and have yet to use it. not good.
