Just curious what are some items (feel free to list a few that you feel strongly about) of kitchen gear that you really like? These might be common, basic items that you think most people have, but it would be interesting to hear people's specific preferences. It could be specialty items that you don't need, but are surprisingly useful at certain times. I'm curious about items in a variety of price ranges.
What are some things you really love, and couldn't imagine not having (or wouldn't want to be without)?
