What small kitchen appliance …
would you keep if you had to get rid of all but one? Why would you keep it and how is your favorite way to use it?
For me it would be my pressure cooker, I can make almost anything with it from breakfast to desserts.
I probably use it most often for making legumes for my meatless meals throughout the week. I have my son hooked on Curried Lentil Butternut squash soup.
I love a bargain…happy to share! Happy holidays to you as well!
I’d have to say my microwave. Yep. I have gadgets that I’ve purchased and some that have been given to me, however the microwave is my best friend. After that, I’d have to say my counter top grill.
i agree with you OldPixie. I would choose my Pressure Cooker…electric of course!. Once I started using the PC I was able to give my rice cooker to my MIL and stopped using my slow cooker. Still have it and just might give it to MIL also.
I have the PC without the slow cooker function but I don’t need that with the PC. Yes I can do almost anything with it and IF I could only keep one it would be the PC.
I just got the Pressure Oven and am having fun with that too!!!

Of all the tons I have…the toaster. Ya, boring. HEY OP, how about sharing that soup recipe?
My Ninja oven hands down!! Easy cleanup and one pot!! Use everyday!!
My drip coffee maker! No explanation necessary! :womanlol:
It’s so hard to choose, but I guess it would be my rice cooker. You can make so many meals with it in no time at all with little prep work. That soup of yours sounds yummy.
