what's in your kitchen

i have been thinking about the tools that are in my cluttered kitchen, and realizing i rarely use most of them, and there is a long list of things i would like to add to my kitchen. so with that in mind, what are the top 5 tools/appliances that you can't live without?

hm. good question!

1 - chefs knife
2 - microplane grater
3 - kitchen aid mixer, but i only use the whisk beater!

wow. that's pretty much it for me for every day tools.
I have a potato masher I use. and a garlic press.
Everything else is standard utensils (like big spoons) and pots and pans. I guess I'm a pretty simple girl.
