One kitchen item you hate to wash?

So last night I was washing yet another sink-full of dishes which is the bane of living in a tiny apartment with a half size sink and no dishwasher. I saved the metal vegetable steamer for last because I hate washing it. It seems like a lost cause to get all the veggie bits out of the fan of collapsible metal fins. As a kid my least favorite item to wash was the food mill my parents used to make spaetzle and the pan used to fry schnitzle. They always happened on the same night and my sister and I would fight like dogs over whose turn it was to do the washing.

So my question is, what's your least favorite kitchen item to wash?
