Stainless Steel Fresh Brew 8 Cup EC-BD15

Zojirushi Coffee Maker w/ Thermal Carafe | Stainless Steel Fresh Brew 8 Cup EC-BD15

I have never associated Korea with fine coffee but when I heard that Zojirushi made a coffee maker I was sold. ("You had me at Zojirushi.") It's one of the few brands that mean anything to me. I adore their rice cooker.

It has everything going for it. Like all Zojirushi ...





Zojirushi Rice Cooker

Electric 6 Cup Steamer NHS-10

Zojirushi Rice Cooker | Electric 6 Cup Steamer NHS-10

This rice cooker is a busy working cook's best friend. Ditto for the healthy cook. I eat twice as much rice now that I have a rice cooker. And I probably cook more at home in general, too. This little cooker just makes it so easy and convenient.

Braun Multiquick Hand Blender

Professional Immersion Chopper MR5550CA

Braun Multiquick Hand Blender | Professional Immersion Chopper MR5550CA

I have only just begun to realize the full power and versatility of this hand blender. I use it mostly to puree soups and blend smoothies. But it would be worth the price just for those two purposes alone.

My favorite feature is the no-splash head. It prevents the food splatter issue ...





Maverick Remote Check Wireless Digital Thermometer ET-7

Maverick Remote Check Wireless Digital Thermometer ET-7

This is a great gadget for food geeks who like appliances with some cool factor. You don't really need this thermometer. You can use a traditional meat thermometer just fine. The process is simple enough. But this gizmo really does make the process easier.

It allows me to multitask in the kitchen ...

Cuisinart 12 Cup Coffee Maker, Black & Stainless

Automatic Grind and Brew DGB-550BK

Cuisinart 12 Cup Coffee Maker, Black & Stainless | Automatic Grind and Brew DGB-550BK

This makes a great cup of coffee when the machine is clean. But it is never clean.

I'm not a huge fan of grind-and-brew coffeemakers. First, they use a blade-style grinder. People who know way more about making coffee than me have declared burr grinders far superior--a better grind for ...

Electric 3 Quart CFO-3SS

Cuisinart Stainless Steel Fondue Set w/ Nonstick Bowl | Electric 3 Quart CFO-3SS

Fondue parties are back in style. With what's-not-to-like ingredients like wine, melted cheese, bread--why did fondue ever go out of style, anyway? Probably because a lot of fondue makers are a pain to deal with.

With an easy-to-use-and-clean fondue maker like this, fondue parties will never go out of style at your ...

Kitchen 6 Piece Nonstick Carbon Steel

Simply Calphalon Bakeware Set | Kitchen 6 Piece Nonstick Carbon Steel

Maxam Kitchen Bakeware Set

Pastry 9 Piece Stainless Steel

Maxam Kitchen Bakeware Set | Pastry 9 Piece Stainless Steel

I am not a fan of bakeware sets. Especially those sets with a lot of items. I'm convinced that you get better cookware by selecting each piece individually, based on its own merits and your unique needs. I'm not a one-size-fits-all sort of gal -- some may even call me high-maintenance when ...





Nordic Ware Baker’s Combo Pack Set

Kitchen Aluminum Bakeware 3 Piece

Nordic Ware Baker’s Combo Pack Set | Kitchen Aluminum Bakeware 3 Piece

This set is made of aluminum. Let's start there. Many people get professional results using aluminum. They are sturdy but lightweight and, for the most part, provide an even temperature distribution. But I find them difficult to clean. It may be me -- maybe I'm not greasing them well ...





Anolon Suregrip Bakeware Set

Kitchen 5 Piece Nonstick Carbon Steel

Anolon Suregrip Bakeware Set | Kitchen 5 Piece Nonstick Carbon Steel

This set has everything you need and nothing you don't. You have a nice-sized 10-by-15-inch cookie pan, a rectangular cake pan and two 9-inch round cake pans (so you have the flexibility to make several types of cakes). And I would use this rectangular cake pan for lasagna - it's the ...





Calphalon Classic Bakeware

Kitchen 5 Piece Nonstick Pan Set

Calphalon Classic Bakeware | Kitchen 5 Piece Nonstick Pan Set

All nonstick bakeware is not created equal. This Calphalon bakeware is so easy to use and clean it could turn anyone into a baker. The nonstick is so excellent that even the stickiest gooiest baked goods will slide right off. (Go ahead - imagine the stickiest, gooiest baked good you can - ...





Farberware Insulated Bakeware Set

Kitchen Cookie Pizza Value Pack

Farberware Insulated Bakeware Set | Kitchen Cookie Pizza Value Pack

You can get these two pans for a great value with this set. Let's start with the baking sheet. I love it. I prefer insulated baking sheets since I have a tendency to over-brown my cookies -- or, to be more honest, to scorch them into unrecognizable charcoal lumps. This sheet is ...





Baker’s Secret Bakeware Set

Kitchen Pan Nonstick 35 Piece

Baker’s Secret Bakeware Set | Kitchen Pan Nonstick 35 Piece

Thirty-seven pieces of bakeware? That's insane. Who needs that much bakeware, you wonder? I was skeptical that these pieces were all necessary. Well, let's take a look at the set and see:

You've got two cookie sheets. That's reasonable; we all need at least two cookie sheets. There's an 8-in. square cake ...





CorningWare Kitchen Bakeware Set

French White Market 6 Piece

CorningWare Kitchen Bakeware Set | French White Market 6 Piece

What I like about CorningWare is that it's designed to be used for preparing, baking, and serving at the table. (So you're really getting three dishes in one with each piece.)

These CorningWare dishes are indispensable?-they are among the most versatile kitchen pieces you can buy. I use them as both casserole ...





Calphalon Classic Bakeware Cookie Sheets

Kitchen 2 Pack Set 17 Inch

Calphalon Classic Bakeware Cookie Sheets | Kitchen 2 Pack Set 17 Inch

In the past, I've just bought the most inexpensive baking sheets possible, figuring that most baking sheets were going to wear down pretty quickly, anyway. I didn't believe that a long-lasting baking sheet really existed. It was like a mythical creature that was rumored to exist but never actually seen.

As a result ...





Anolon Suregrip Bakeware Pan Set

Kitchen 2 Piece Meat Loaf

Anolon Suregrip Bakeware Pan Set | Kitchen 2 Piece Meat Loaf

When I first heard about this meatloaf pan I wondered: Who makes so much meatloaf that they need a specialized pan? Well, now I have my answer. People who have this meatloaf pan make that much meatloaf because this pan is so awesome.

Le Creuset Stoneware Ramekin Set

Kitchen Dish Cobalt Blue 4 Piece

Le Creuset Stoneware Ramekin Set | Kitchen Dish Cobalt Blue 4 Piece

Of all the items in my kitchen, my favorites bear the Le Creuset brand. It's not an inexpensive brand, so the ramekins are a great way to get a little bit of Creuset cachet for not a lot of cash. These are pieces that I display proudly on my open ...





Wilton Petal Cake Pan Set

Gourmet Stainless Catering 4 Tier

Wilton Petal Cake Pan Set | Gourmet Stainless Catering 4 Tier

I don't bake cakes. But now that I'm a mom I am determined to try my had at something more than a store-bought, boxed cake mix in a rectangle shaped pan with frosting from a tin.

This petal-shaped cake pan set includes 6, 9, 12, and 15-inch flower-shaped cake pans. Together, they ...





DeLonghi Drip Coffee Maker

Front Access Digital w/ Filter DCF212T

DeLonghi Drip Coffee Maker | Front Access Digital w/ Filter DCF212T

This coffee maker has a lot of special features?but most of them aren't features that I find that useful.

Let's start with the special features that are useful. I like the front access. This is the big differentiator with this model. And if you keep your coffee maker on a counter underneath ...





Farberware Non Stick Bakeware Set

Cookie Sheet Promo Twin Pans

Farberware Non Stick Bakeware Set | Cookie Sheet Promo Twin Pans

Good ol' Farberware. It feels like they've been around forever. One of those brands that I recall from my childhood or something. (And I just Googled them to see how long they've been around, and it is over 100 years, so I'm not imagining this.) I swear my grandmother had ...





DeLonghi Esclusivo Coffee Maker

Large Stainless Programmable 14 Cup DC514T

DeLonghi Esclusivo Coffee Maker | Large Stainless Programmable 14 Cup DC514T

This is a mammoth-sized coffeemaker. It has lots of bells and whistles: a timer so you can make up-to-the-minute fresh coffee, auto shut off (a must for me), plus a permanent filter (another must). It would be great for a large family or in an office environment.

I wish it had a ...

DeLonghi Twenty Four Seven Coffee Maker | Kitchen Black 4 Cup

This model proves that you don't have to spend a lot of beans to get a good coffeemaker. (Some of the high-priced modes have features you really don't need anyway.)

Kitchen Programmable White DC59TW 12 Cup

DeLonghi Digital Coffee Maker | Kitchen Programmable White DC59TW 12 Cup

I am one of those people that always leave the coffee pot on when I leave the house. And even if I remember to turn it off, I wonder and worry that I haven't until I can go back home to check. This pot does the thinking for you. I love ...

Non Stick 14 Piece

Circulon Classic Kitchen Cookware Set | Non Stick 14 Piece

Let's just get this issue out of the way: This cookware doesn't compare to something like All-Clad. But at this price, who cares? Circulon offers fantastic cookware at a fantastic price.

Margaritaville Electric Frozen Concoction Maker DM1000

Margaritaville Electric Frozen Concoction Maker DM1000

A frozen margarita? Call me a purist, but I like mine on the rocks. No fancy mix or secret ingredients. Just Tequila, triple sec/Cointreau, and freshly squeezed lime juice, with salt on the rim. Simple and perfect.

This margarita maker is like the fraternity boy of blending machines. It's large and loud. A little ...





Cuisinart Kitchen Griddler Jr

Brushed Stainless Steel Adjustable Grill GR-3

Cuisinart Kitchen Griddler Jr | Brushed Stainless Steel Adjustable Grill GR-3

This product works just fine. That sounds underwhelming but it is what it is. It's a small version of the extremely-popular Griddler. In functionality, it's similar to the George Foreman grill. But you can use it a few different ways. It's great for burgers and can cook them on both ...





Cuisinart Coffee Grind and Brew

Brushed Chrome Grinder Machine DGB-600BC

Cuisinart Coffee Grind and Brew | Brushed Chrome Grinder Machine DGB-600BC

I can see how this contraption seemed like a good idea. Why not combine the coffee bean grinder and brewing components into one awesome machine? What coffee drinker wouldn't bow down to this mighty creation? Add the ability to set the timer so it grinds and brews in the wee ...





Zojirushi Home Bakery Bread Maker

Mini Programmable 1 Pound Loaf BB-HAC10

Zojirushi Home Bakery Bread Maker | Mini Programmable 1 Pound Loaf BB-HAC10

What a cool idea: a mini breadmaker that creates adorable little 1-pound loaves. That's the perfect size for my family. I'm always buying larger loaves that end up moldy or in my freezer, where I always forget about them.

This breadmaker is small, too-- small enough that you could actually leave ...





Cuisinart Traditional Waffle Iron

Stainless Steel 6 Slice Model WAF-6

Cuisinart Traditional Waffle Iron | Stainless Steel 6 Slice Model WAF-6

This is an okay waffle maker. Not bad. Not extraordinary. Just okay.

I guess I'm a fan of the Belgian-style waffle makers-- whether you are making Belgian waffles or not. Maybe I just have a heavy hand with the waffle batter, but when I use a regular (non Belgian) waffle maker, ...

Black Convection Infrared 20326

NuWave Pro Digital Kitchen Tabletop Oven | Black Convection Infrared 20326

This tabletop oven does everything a conventional oven does, only much faster and more efficiently. This little oven cooks food twice as fast and it uses 85% less energy. It's almost magical.

Panasonic Rice Cooker

Digital Silver 5-1/2 Cup Model SR-TMB10

Panasonic Rice Cooker | Digital Silver 5-1/2 Cup Model SR-TMB10

I must say that I am surprised at how terrific the Panasonic rice cooker is. I'm a huge fan of the Zojirushi rice cooker and the Panasonic is a very comparable product for a fraction of the cost

The 5-cup size is more than I need everyday. But you can use it for ...





Blendtec Home Blender Professional’s Choice Total

Black 1500 Watt TB-621-BHM

Blendtec Home Blender Professional’s Choice Total | Black 1500 Watt TB-621-BHM

This is a serious blender for people who have serious blending needs. It's definitely professional-grade quality. It makes my old blender look like a child's toy. I once visited a website where you could view blenders blending things you would not believe. You name it, they would blend it. And this blender ...





Best Juicer

Breville Juice Fountain Elite Extractor #800JEXL | 1000 Watt

Best Juicer | Breville Juice Fountain Elite Extractor #800JEXL | 1000 Watt

I saw Martha Stewart using this juicer on her TV show. Now, I don't run out and purchase every single kitchen appliance she promotes or raves about. But she was going nuts over this juicer and I was in the market for a juicer and I loved the look of ...





Rachael Ray Orange Oval Saute Pan

Kitchen Hard Anodized Non Stick 5 Quart Pot

Rachael Ray Orange Oval Saute Pan | Kitchen Hard Anodized Non Stick 5 Quart Pot

Why would you want an oval-shaped saute pan? Good question. When I first saw this I thought it was for cooking on two burners. And you can use it this way. (I guess it depends on your stove design, really.) On my stove, the size of this pan works ...





Progressive International Microwave S’Mores Maker

Kitchen Novelty Appliance

Progressive International Microwave S’Mores Maker | Kitchen Novelty Appliance

This appliance really takes all the fun and drama out of making s'mores over a campfire. Sure, you can make s'mores whenever you want. But there is something magical about doing it the old-fashioned campfire way -- even if that means that you can't have them on command. A perfect fire-toasted s'more is ...





Norpro Pasta Drying Rack

Chef’s 16 Inch Wood Stand

Norpro Pasta Drying Rack | Chef’s 16 Inch Wood Stand

There are several ways to dry fresh pasta. I used to hang my pasta from a towel rack. A wooden dish rack could work, too. And I know someone who dried his pasta on a broom laid across two chairs.

The Norpro Pasta Drying Rack is a much easier way.

If you ...





Cuisipro Accutec Razor Sharp Rasp

Hand Held Zest Grater

Cuisipro Accutec Razor Sharp Rasp | Hand Held Zest Grater

I couldn't cook without a rasp. I dread the thought. How would I create soft pillowy clouds of Parmesan cheese all the time? I just can't go back to the crude Parmesan scraps created by a regular box grater. Ditto for lemon zest. A rasp eliminates the need for a ...





Presto Professional Jumbo Electric Griddle

22 Inch Skillet #07039

Presto Professional Jumbo Electric Griddle | 22 Inch Skillet #07039

This is indeed a very jumbo-sized griddle. You could probably cook eight good-sized pancakes at the same time with this griddle. (I'm using the little know but very tasty pancake measuring system here.) I'm not sure where you would store a griddle of this size, but if you have a large family ...





Nesco American Harvest Food Dehydrator

700 Watt #FD-75PR

Nesco American Harvest Food Dehydrator | 700 Watt #FD-75PR

This is the best fruit dehydrator in its price class. (Nesco also makes food hydrators at higher price points with more space, trays, accessories, etc. These, too, are high-quality machines.) But I think that most people won't need more than what this model offers.

There are food hydrators that cost less, ...





Rival Stainless Steel Fondue Pot

Electric Dessert, Cheese Cooker

Rival Stainless Steel Fondue Pot | Electric Dessert, Cheese Cooker

There is something quaint and seemingly old-fashioned about the candle-lit fondue pots, but I will never go back now that I have an electric one. The temperature is so much easier to control with the Rival. The candle-heated ones are okay for keeping a small pot almost warm, but ...





Salton Santa Fe Quesadilla Maker

900 Watt Grill #QM2R

Salton Santa Fe Quesadilla Maker | 900 Watt Grill #QM2R

A quesadilla maker? Really? Is it that hard to make a quesadilla? Is it that time-consuming?

One-purpose items are generally prohibited in my kitchen. (My salad-spinner is the one exception that leaps to mind.) And if a product is going to do only one thing, it needs to do it well.

I like ...





Nordic Ware Microwave Egg Boiler

Kitchen Cookware Appliance

Nordic Ware Microwave Egg Boiler | Kitchen Cookware Appliance

I have a strict no-useless-gadgets policy. Especially when that gadget is big and takes up a lot of space. When I first heard of this product, I thought it was the most ridiculous kitchen appliance I had ever heard of (right up there with the microwaveable s'mores maker.)

My feelings about ...





Cuisinart Chef’s Classic Everyday Pan

Non Stick Aluminum Hard Anodized w/ 12 Inch Lid

Cuisinart Chef’s Classic Everyday Pan | Non Stick Aluminum Hard Anodized w/ 12 Inch Lid

If I could only have one piece of cookware, it would likely be a 12-inch pan like this. You can cook anything in this pan. It's deep enough for soups. Great for sautes or stir-fries, too. And it goes right into your oven. Perfect for chicken-and-rice dishes and other casseroles. ...
