Linda, I have one of these too. They're a bit more expensive, but so-o worth it. I don't think it's a good idea to skimp on kitchen appliances of any kind, full size or countertop. I make sauerkraut regularly and the Breville is a life saver. I might not make sauerkraut as often if I didn't have this.I absolutely love my Breville food processor.
I identity as a unicorn I eat Skittles and poop rainbows.I'm identifying as gender neutral for this post., so all's well.
An arthritis friendly, jar lid opener. I'm talking the kind that looks like a giant bobby-pin with four circles of different sizes. Can't open jars without one.
OK kerbluey, I was going to say my automatic electric egg cooker, but now you reminded me of that other even better thing, the dishwasher. LOVE MY DISHWASHER! I run it every night regardless of how full or empty it is, and empty it every morning and it keeps my kitchen tidy all day as a result.Besides the dishwasher? Probably the Instant Pot. I use it a lot.
I agree. Both of those answers were excellent. I just don't really think of a dishwasher as a "gadget" (doesn't mean it isn't.)OK kerbluey, I was going to say my automatic electric egg cooker, but now you reminded me of that other even better thing, the dishwasher.

But my egg cooker is a close second. Every couple of days George or I put 6 eggs in it, and it steams them to hard boiled perfection. We heave them into the fridge and have an egg or two every morning for breakfast.
I'm a fan of eggs at breakfast, I don't get low blood sugar attacks if I eat them, my weight stays stable, and I don't get too hungry later in the day. I'm not keto precisely, I'm low carb ISH with an emphasis on the ISH
OH WAIT, the Coffee Maker! Yeah that comes second, the egg cooker is third.
Caffeine is more of a priority than protein!
It's a way of saying that I don't follow Keto "rules", and I loosely interpret low carbing. I'm low carb ish like I might be tidy ish, meaning about 50% of the time I'm tidy, the other 50% I might be a total disaster zone.Athenasius, what is ISH?
I gotta try it, our Tim Hortons (Canadian coffee chain) just started advertising cold brew coffee. I love coffee period, so I'm interested. Especially if I can make it at home.I have always preferred cold brewed coffee, it just tastes better to me. I used to wrap the ground coffee up in a filter (like a big teabag), added to a pitcher of water and refrigerated overnight.
Since cold brew has become popular, I found a cold brew coffee maker on a popular online retailer. I absolutely love it! Easy to use and clean - makes great coffee. I don't have many small kitchen appliances or gadgets, but this item has earned its space in my kitchen.
Marge, about a year ago, I was over the top loving cold brew coffee, couldn't get enough, especially with a little full fat cream at the top that slowly drifted its way down. The swirling pattern was pretty, and, oh! It was so good. Then, I learned the bad news about the 'way higher caffeine content. Since dh & I both have hypertension, I decided it wouldn't be wise to keep making overnight cold brew any longer. Now, I rarely have it, but it's still so good when I do.I gotta try it, our Tim Hortons (Canadian coffee chain) just started advertising cold brew coffee. I love coffee period, so I'm interested.
