    Basic blender user here for baby food. When I was making big batches I would share the blender. Other times I would take whatever I made for dinner and put it through a hand crank food mill.

    My slow cooker came free with something, a pair of trousers from a catalogue I think? It has a non-stick liner SMS a variable heat setting but I still don't use it very often so I'm glad that it didn't cost (anything).
    My chopping board is wood, it was Oma's I also have a glass one but I take A*O's approach especially after hearing that study that said wooden chopping boards are better . My kitchen knives are alsorts of brands & ages, I have my Oma's & Granny's knives (as well as granny's copper bottomed pans- still going strong!), but my most used are a sabatier & a supermarket own brand. I do sharpen them with a steel but bought a ceramic & thingy sharpen from Aldi today...

    I had been wanting one of these for a while, and it was on clearance the other day so I treated myself as an early Christmas gift. I love it! It cores, peels, and slices apples in about 10 seconds.

    A standard (not wide mouth) Mason jar will fit a blender blade/base assembly. It's great for small batches of puréed foods, salad dressings, grinding coffee beans, etc.

    there is a slight disadvantage in that you cannot add stuff while blending

    I definitely can't! I don't have great fine motor skills, and ever since an accident in the kitchen when I was a little girl where I cut off part of my index finger, I get really nervous about using knives or anything sharp in close proximity to my hands. So, for me this is a lifesaver!

    Why not eat the skin? Its good for you, plus the best nutrients are just under the skin & by peeling it youre cutting them away.

    If you're cooking them, cook them & remove the skins, or cook them & then chop the skins up.

    Those apple machines can be adjusted to include the skin. It's a very clever piece of Victorian design and fun for kids to use. You can whizz through a lot of apples quickly for things like pies or sauces so it's not a total gimmick.

    It does look nifty. I also like the circle thing that's cuts your apples into slices but I can never get it just right.

    Spaghetti tongs. They make tossing long pasta and sauce a breeze.

    Since I changed my eating habits, I have fallen in love with my juicer that helps me enjoy my power juices everyday. Nothing is being wasted, I used the pulps in the food I prepare. Healthy for both body and my pocket.

    yes.

    i'm a big fan of tongs in general.
    cooking tongs are great for cooking, much easier to use than a spatula for turning things while they're cooking. now i only use the spatula when i'm making eggs or other things that need more 'support' to be turned over.
