After drooling over them for years, I finally upgraded my yard sale dehydrator last year and got an Excalibur. It holds so much more than the round machines and works like a champ!

I’ve tried a variety of blenders, but Blendtec is my top choice for ease of use and a lower profile. It’s a workhorse that I use nearly every day.
I didn’t jump on the instant pot bandwagon for quite a while. I figured it was just another one of those gimmicky appliances. When I did finally order one, I di so very sheepishly. I was hooked after my first use. And I’ve used it non-stop ever since.
From applesauce to pearsauce and so much more, this food mill makes your preserving jobs much easier. It’s crazy durable (seriously I’m sure my kids will be using this when I’m gone), easy to mount on your counter, and you can even purchase an add-on electric motor if you don’t wanna do the cranking.
This classic, time-tested appliance has never done me wrong. It’s hands-down my favorite mixer I’ve ever had in my kitchen.
Once you put in your yummy ingredients, this machine does it all, making amazing ice cream, frozen yogurt, or sorbet. I keep the 2-quart freezer bowl in my freezer all the time, cold and ready. Cause you never know when you might be in desperate need of all-natural creamy ice cream asap. It comes with an intense recipe book that would probably cover most of your cravings, but for the record this is my favorite.
This baby is a workhorse. I’m really picky with my kitchen gadgets and only keep the necessities; my pasta machine belongs in that category and has earned its place in my crowded cupboards. If you want to treat your family to fresh-made pasta often, this is a must-have.

It makes my day when a loaf of homemade bread turns out perfectly. (No, it doesn’t happen all the time.) But why not make every day a little happier by having this drop-dead gorgeous mill on my counter, right? I mean why have a plain ole ugly plastic mill when I can have this for the same price? Am I right?
