      Wow, I didn’t know I had so much, till I started reading! My biggest kitchen essential would be my microwave! Plus from the $ Tree I found spatulas that can stand heat up to I think 500*.

      Plus they are brightly colored-easy to find! ps-a lot of this I don’t have…

    • #426405

      I have most of it but would never consider a crock pot an optional item! Food processor might be optional, the coffee maker and grinder would most certainly be optional, but never a crockpot!

    • #434852

      I probably don’t have a lot of these things. I love my crockpot so much I have 2 sizes of them. My favorite thing to do is dump recipes.

      I’m teaching my son how to as I am learning more about them.

      I’m another one that has just got to have my Crock Pots. Love them!!!
      I so agree they’re NOT optional. But then again, neither is my coffee pot.

    • #437809

      I don’t think the word optional should be next to crock pot. That should be under The Life Saving/Time Crunch list of Must Haves…but thats just me. lol

      Also, what is a strawberry huller?

    • #437814

      A strawberry huller is a little tool that pinches the stem and leaves and removes them and leaves the strawberry whole and lovely looking for those great strawberry pie recipes, etc.

      I think I have a little ways to go. I thought you might need 2 measuring cups. thanks for the list. I saved it to see what I need.

      Thank you, brchbell. I thought that is what it did, but never seen one before and obviously never used one.
