    A slotted spoon since it works great for serving so many different things.

    The egg-lifter or spatula as many people know it. Why....because it is a very versatile gadget. Turns eggs great and can be used as a self-defense weapon! :-). Man, a spatula hits hard!

    My Gas Stove!

    Seriously though, it's my assortment of lime squeezers.

    The can opener.  Excellent tool  Life would be difficult without it.

    My trusty old dutch oven.  It serves me over the gas flame, the charcoals of the backyard grill, or over the sticks and twigs of the campfire.  It is trustworthy for soups, stews, roasting, simmering and even for baking.

    A frying pan. If forced to, I could make just about everything in it.

    The oven mitt lol often imitated, never duplicated I have seen many a burn from people trying to be creative and not use it.

    Besides the obvious necessary objects (stove, cooking utensils, etc) - I really like my pasta maker.

    We can make fresh, amazing pasta in less than a half hour using the pasta maker. It is an Italian brand, easy to use, and which we stay away from eating lots of pasta we find that making an exception once in awhile for the fresh stuff is so worth it. Yum!

    Other tools I like:
    *food mill (hand cranked)
    *molcajete (traditional Mexican mortar and pestle - makes the best salsa you've ever tasted!)

    I like the whisk...they come in a variety of sizes. They work wonderfully for blending dry products with liquids in a smooth and rapid manner and they really do a nice job of fluffing the eggs if you are making an omelet. Whisks are just a lot of fun! WB
