I just love using this thing. It squeezes every last drop out of lemons and limes (I use the lemon one for both and it works great). Along with my microplane rasp, this thing is in constant use around my kitchen whenever the citrus fruits come out.

I've owned a few different deep fryers and love this one because of the temperature control--a feature which many manufacturers sadly neglect to add--and easy cleanup. DeLonghi has become a really great choice in the world of low priced kitchen electrics, and this fryer is no exception.

These are in such constant use in my kitchen, that I'm surprised ever to find them dry. They're made of beautiful olive wood, which unlike steel utensils, doesn't leave my food tasting tinny when cooking in a metal pan, and they're safe for use on non-stick surfaces as well. A must for anyone serious about cooking.

Makes cleaning up a breeze.

I thought my girlfriend was silly for bringing home a gadget such as this. Boy, was I wrong. Ever since putting this in the kitchen, cleaning meat seems like less of a chore. No longer do I walk around the kitchen after cleaning a chicken, struggling to pump soap out of a plastic pump with the back of my hand to avoid contaminating everything I touch. Operation is a snap. It always dispenses just the right amount of soap, and if it didn't, there are multiple settings. And the capacity is huge. We've had it for two months and have barely put a dent in the amount of soap that originally went into it. It's actually saving us soap by dispensing the perfect amount every time. Absolutely love it.

Before moving into a house I lived in an apartment with a very small kitchen and limited space. Only a few items were kept close at hand, and this was certainly one of them. It's uses are many, from zesting citrus, to grinding nutmeg. I've even used it to finely grate garlic into super potent paste. The handle is comfortable and the acrylic sleeve makes for easy storage without having to worry about dulling. After five years the thing still works as good as the day I bought it. It's no wonder this gadget has become a staple in kitchens everywhere.

I've had a few of these salad spinners, and they have always had problems. One had a crank that wore out after a few uses, and the one with the pull string was miserably hard to use. But the OXO is easy. The button really works, and my greens come out nice and dry. Because of this, I always keep it close at hand, and it's just about replaced my colander too.

Lodge Logic's preseasoning process penetrates the metal's pores thoroughly and uniformly, so it looks and performs better than traditional home seasoning.

I recently bought the 12" skillet, and must say, if you don't own one of these, you have no excuse not to. It is an absolutely amazing pan for browning meats and pan-frying. It's versatile, and makes the trip from stove to oven without worries. I've even made pineapple upside-down cake in the thing. With proper care, this pan should outlast multiple owners, and for the price, you really have no excuse not to have one.

I love the freedom of making my own pasta, and this machine is the one and only. I can add pestos or herbs to my dough, make the noodles skinny or wide, and I have great fun doing it. I improvised some pasta the other night while friends were over and you'd have thought I'd conjured the stuff from mid-air. They were so amazed at how fast and easy from-scratch pasta could be.
