  2. I think they are all great gadgets , but the one I would use the most if I had it would be the KitchenAid 2-Speed Stick Blender. I don’t have one and I would love to have one for pureeing and making sauces smoother.

  3. The starfrit spiral vegetable slicer looks like a great way to add vegetables to any dinner dish. Instant pot 7-1 looks great too

  4. Hamilton Beach Digital Food Dehydrator! So many other good choices too…! I need a really good immersion blender, and the food spiralizer would be so much fun!

  5. The instant pot 7-in-1 looks very practical. It would be wonderful to have so many cooking options and it occupies a single space.

  6. Instant pot 7 in 1 cooker as I have never tried one and we try to eat mostly homemade from scratch foods and I love trying new gadgets and new recipes – and my crockpot hit the bucket so this would be perfect!

  11. I would love to try the KitchenAid 2 speed stick blender. It’s so compact and versatile. My FB name is Zainab Shaikh.

  12. I’d love to get the KitchenAid 2-Speed Stick Blender – I loved my previous stick blender but it died in a tragic dropped from a high counter onto a concrete floor accident and whenever I think I’m going to buy a new one I talk myself out of it saying we don’t really “need” it then when I have a hot pot of potentially creamy soup I get mad at myself for not buying one and eat chunky lumpy veggies in soup (or as the rest of the house calls it liquid stew)

  13. I have been seen so much about the instant pot… would love to try it! I even saw a fabulous recipe for Mongolian Beef on FB specifically written for it! Thanks!

  17. I would totally get the Soda Stream,I drink way to much pop. I need to cut down. I am about to be 40 need to start taking better care of myself. And pop is my addiction!

  18. Starting a ketogenic diet, it’s gonna be a challenge, zucchini pasta will help make that easier, and therefore the spiralizer is my tool of choice! 🙂
