For me it would be the slow cooker. We have a huge 8ltr one and on uesdays and wednesdays I work quite long shifts, and I love just being able to chuck a few things in there and know that when I get hom dinner will be ready.

Just makes life so much easier. Also, the crockpot is removable, so its just one thing that goes in the dishwasher.

My husband. LOL

It so nice that he's a good cook too and I don't have to cook everything, everyday.

My Keurig!

The savings since having it have more than paid for it already. I used to buy at least 2 coffees per day ($1.60 each) of my fave (Timmies) but with the Keurig & a My K cup filter, I make it at home & it costs me about 30 cents (cost of coffee, sugar twin & creamer) per cup for the same size as I would have spent the $1.60 on (not including the gas & time to go get it!).

Definitely my dishwasher. I hate dishes. I couldn't really live without my mixer either. I know that's weird but I love to bake.

Ya know, I have a dishwasher (big portable Maytag) that I've had for years. It works perfectly, but I need a replacement part (that grips on to the sink tap) and have needed it for 2 years, but can never find just that piece (nothing locally at all and online you can only get the entire hose unit which I don't need)... so the dishwasher has been sitting all cleaned & unused tucked away & I wash dishes by hand.

Eventually I'll find the part lol

Have you descaled it?

If not, just run some vinegar through it, and then a full container of water to see if that helps.

My can opener. We don't use the microwave often and don't have a dishwasher. Next to that would be my mixer and my food processor.

Hmmmm, I don't know. I guess I'd have to say the microwave. We didn't have one when I was growing up and it was such a pita to warm stuff on the stove and it would take forever. Either that or the toaster, making toast on the stove, also a pita.

LMAO!!!

Toast on the stove is called "daddy toast" here. Only way he likes it is fried in a skillet.

I do have to say I love, love my cast iron skillet!!!
