I was going to ask everyone a question about breadmakers, but that got me thinking about kitchen appliances; Which kitchen appliances have a permanent spot on your counter? For me it's the coffee maker and a slow cooker, but it occurred to me that a lot of people probably have much more interesting things taking up high priority spots on their countertops. So how about it, which appliances/accessories are the MVP's of your kitchen? Does anyone regularly use something terribly exotic? *besides, you know, refrigerators, stoves, microwaves and ovens.
