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.
Not inlcuding pots 'n' pans....
1. My 8" chef's knife.
2. Coffee grinder.
3. Coffee pot.
5. The big baking stone that lives in my oven.
Tom did a top 10 list a while back.
To come up to 10 (and include pans)
6. A good sauté pan.
7. A 3 qt. sauteuse. (Yes, Tom, i'm converted now - thank you!)
8. A big stock pot.
9. A great whisk.
10. A good strong blender.
Other things i wouldn't WANT to give up?
11. The toaster oven.
12. My kitchenaid mixer.
13. My chinois.
14. Microplane graters
15. Cocktail shaker. 8)
