Friday Question of the Day – What is your Favorite Kitchen Appliance?

Having a pressure cooker was never high up on my wishlist of kitchen appliances. Then I read this NY Times article about the pressure cooker Instant Pot and decided to get one. All I have to say is wow. It can cook fall-off-the-bone meats in less than an hour. Steel cut oats in 20 minutes. Real mac and cheese in 5 minutes. I’m really amazed by it. What is your favorite kitchen appliance? Do you have an electric pressure cooker? If so, what are you going to make with it for Thanksgiving?

    My Magimix food processor is my favorite. Powerful, and I use it to make pie dough in seconds.

    For large appliance, I love my DCS gas cooktop, and for small appliance I’d probably say my food processors (yes, I have two). I had a T-Fal electric pressure cooker (really multi-cooker) however I didn’t care for it. I ended up selling it and buying a stove-top pressure cooker which I occasionally use. Instant Pot does address the biggest downside (i.e. needing to brown stuff separately) however my stovetop pressure cooker also doesn’t have that problem (and it cooks at a higher pressure so it’s quicker). For Thanksgiving, I’m making a side – Brussels sprouts which I saute in pancetta with ground fennel seed then steam with a little stock in a covered pan.
