For a kitchen gadget to make this list it has to be useful and easy to clean. The gadgets listed here are the ones I am still using after the "newness" wore off. Try them.

Bread Machines
I own a Panasonic 1 1/2 pound loaf bread machine. I love it. This device meets all the requirements for a great kitchen gadget. It is easy to use, it is foolproof and it is easy to clean. Bread Machine bread is wonderful. From start to finish it takes about 5 minutes of your time and 4 hours of the machine's time. The Panasonic model has a timer so you can set it to have fresh bread ready when you get up in the morning. Or when you get home from work. Wonderful.

This machine also makes great pizza dough. See my recipe for Bread Machine Pizza Dough.

The Iced Tea Pot by Mister Coffee

This machine makes quick and easy iced tea. I will never go back to the old days of heating water in a pan and steeping the tea. This is so much better. And quicker. See my recipe for the "House Blend" at Talking Leaves. You'll like it.

Mr. Coffee 4 Cup Coffee Pot

Making a small quanity of coffee in most coffee pots is a haphazard affair. With the Mr. Coffee 4 Cup Coffee Pot one can get 1 or 2 cups of perfect coffee every time. The machine is simple, quick and easy to clean.
