My Chef’n rolling garlic chopper. I love cooking with garlic and this saves me a lot of time. Thanks for the chance to win!

103
Melissa December 2, 2011 at 6:35 am

This would be wonderful in my kitchen!!

104
Megan LaBelle December 2, 2011 at 6:36 am

I would have to say my Kitchen Aid mixer – I couldn’t live without it!

105
Donna December 2, 2011 at 6:36 am

What a fun contest!! My favorite tool is my garlic press. I’m Italian and use garlic in everything so my press is always in use.

Thanks for the opportunity.

106
Susan K. December 2, 2011 at 6:37 am

I love the gadget I use when I brown ground beef. It’s a big “X” on a stick {well, that’s what my husband calls it} and it breaks up the beef as I’m browning it. Sounds silly as I’m describing it, but it leaves you with a pan of nicely uniform meat, that results in perfect tacos, casseroles, etc.

Thanks for the chance to win these goodies! Have a super weekend!

107
Jessica December 2, 2011 at 6:37 am

hmmm I would say that my most beloved tool would be my mandoline slicer. I use that thing almost every day

great giveaway.. I’m totally smitten over that herbmill!

108
jenny@boxandb December 2, 2011 at 6:38 am

I would have to say a great set of knives. I could really use that glove though…remember when I grated my thumb; along with the cheese. Ouch!

109
Ashlee December 2, 2011 at 6:38 am

My favorite kitchen tool is definitely my Vibe Kitchen spatula. I got this at target a couple years ago, it is super flexible, double sided, and AWESOME! It doesn’t leave any cookie dough or batter behind in that bowl!

110
Kathy December 2, 2011 at 6:39 am

I guess it would have to be my paring knife, I use it alot. Those tools would so great to use.

111
JennStar December 2, 2011 at 6:39 am

I know this sounds silly, but I love my onion goggles! Particularly when slices a batch of onions, I love them even more. They remind me of my ski goggles (and you could probablly just use those if you have them) with foam around the eye glass pieces. You can “smell” the “heat” but just when you think your eyes will water, they don’t. I’ve even had friends borrow them when making things like French Onion Soup! ;o)

112
Sarilyn December 2, 2011 at 6:40 am

I’d be lost without my kitchen scissors!

113
Kody Turner- Schimmel December 2, 2011 at 6:41 am

I can’t live without my santoku knife. I use it for EVERYTHING!

114
Dot Rutherford December 2, 2011 at 6:43 am

I really use a grater a lot, however, a pizza cutter is definitely a staple in our kitchen tools as well! Thanks for the contest! Fingers crossed! :)

115
Laura December 2, 2011 at 6:43 am

I love my garlic press, my microplane zester and my silpat!

116

117
Catie December 2, 2011 at 6:46 am

I don’t know if you would consider it a tool but I love my offset spatula for decorating cakes!

118
Carolyn December 2, 2011 at 6:46 am

I love my apple corer pealer slicer. Especially when I’m making apple pies.

119
Dana December 2, 2011 at 6:46 am

I love my kitchen shears. They are so versatile! I’ve never tried any of the Microplane products, but would love to! (That herb mill looks like so much fun!) Thanks for the chance at this great giveaway!

120
Monique December 2, 2011 at 6:47 am

My favorite tool is my Mix N’ Chop from Pampered Chef. It makes quick work of breaking down ground beef and sausage.

121
http://moderngirl.jurna.ro/ December 2, 2011 at 6:49 am

The grater! It helps me a lot when I don’t want to slice, chop etc. Makes me less lazy! :)

122
Jan December 2, 2011 at 6:51 am

My small Cutco knife – it is about 5″ with a pointy tip – I love it and use it every day. Another favorite is a really good whisk.

123
Julie December 2, 2011 at 6:52 am

My favorite tool is my stove/oven. It cooks everything from boiled eggs to a Thanksgiving feast. I love it!

124
Jean December 2, 2011 at 6:53 am

I truly love the fragrance when fresh herbs are chopped. I think the herb mill would be in use daily. What a wonderful and essential tool.

125
Stephanie M December 2, 2011 at 6:54 am

My favorite kitchen tool is my chef’s knife. I use it everyday and LOVE it. :-)

126
Susan December 2, 2011 at 6:54 am

My silicone spoon – it’s half spoon, half spatula. Great for cooking on the stove, great for scraping bowls. I have several. I too love my mini spatula from Pampered Chef.

127
Katie December 2, 2011 at 6:55 am

Now that I actually have a nice knife set I cannot live without it. Just makes life so much easier.

128
Leslie W December 2, 2011 at 6:56 am

A good sharp paring knife is essential, without it I might as well close my kitchen.

129
Tara C. December 2, 2011 at 6:56 am

I kinda LOVE my cookie scooper. :)

130
Jenna December 2, 2011 at 6:57 am

I love my food chopper! Make cutting vegetables super easy.

131
Kate December 2, 2011 at 6:58 am

I love my food processor. I resisted getting one because I have limited counter space, but I’m glad I did. I use it all the time.

132
Kay December 2, 2011 at 6:59 am

I can’t live without my handy zester as I have to put garlic in everything but don’t want chunks in my food…..

133
Jae December 2, 2011 at 6:59 am

I love kitchen gadgets! The herb microplane would be a great addition to my collection!

134
Bobbi December 2, 2011 at 7:00 am

Don’t laugh, but I love my metal cookie scoops and not just for cookies. They are the perfect size and perfect amount every time.

135
Lindsay R December 2, 2011 at 7:00 am

my chef’s knife!

136
jules p December 2, 2011 at 7:01 am

I think my favorite kitchen tool would be my 15 inch tongs. I love those things. They come in handy so often.

137
Tracie December 2, 2011 at 7:01 am

My favorite kitchen tool would be my whisk. I use it just about everyday!

138
Susannah December 2, 2011 at 7:02 am

I think I use my food processor at least three times per week. Love it! Also, when you announce winners, do you do it on this site? I don’t remember seeing winners for the previous giveaways. Just wondering! I subscribe to your blog, so I see all of your posts. :)

139
Elizabeth December 2, 2011 at 7:03 am

Couldn’t be without my set of knifes. These tools would be fabulous to have to have :)

140
Lori December 2, 2011 at 7:03 am

These tools look awesome, I would love to have the herb mill. I grew my own herbs this summer and it was great, this herb mill would have made it perfect! My all time favorite kitchen gadgets are: pampered Chef cookie scoop (gotta have them all the same size for perfect baking) and my hard boiled egg slicer.

141
Dalai Lina December 2, 2011 at 7:03 am

Amanda, I need that herb mill! What do I use everyday? My hand held lemon squeezer. Everyday.

142
danielle December 2, 2011 at 7:04 am

My wooden spoons – definetly

143
Tracie December 2, 2011 at 7:05 am

My saute pan…it’s the only thing I can’t jerry-rig with another tool.

144
Christina R December 2, 2011 at 7:06 am

food processor! :)

145
PattyZ December 2, 2011 at 7:06 am

I LOVE Kitchen Gadgets!!! I just bought onion glasses they work AWESOME!!! but….Kitchen shears they are the best I can’t live without them I use them for everything even cutting PIZZA! I have like 4 pairs of Kitchen Aid scissors : ) I have pair with red handles just for meat I cut the fat off of chicken and other meat.
I am a gadget nut : )

146
Bobbi Hawkins December 2, 2011 at 7:07 am

All of these products sound amazing! I love my food chopper! I can’t cut onions without tearing up. These kitchen tools look like they can cut prep time. Always a life saver.

147
Francesca December 2, 2011 at 7:07 am

I love my butter spreader…is that even what it’s called? Anyway, it’s my fav.

148
Kendra December 2, 2011 at 7:07 am

I would never do without my heat resistant spatulas because – IF – one should happen to turn on the back burner and you really meant to turn on the front burner and just happened to have a spatula on that back burner – it won’t melt and ruin your stovetop! :)

149
Helen December 2, 2011 at 7:08 am

Definitely the microplane zester! I have one, but would love one for my daughter. When I go to her kitchen I’m lost without it!

150
Candy December 2, 2011 at 7:09 am

Great give-away….all of those tools would be awesome.

My favorite tool is my santoku knife. I use it for everything and love it.

151
Brittany December 2, 2011 at 7:09 am

My Crock Pot! My husband and I both work, and it’s literally a lifesaver to come home to a cooked meal. All I have to do is get up a few minutes early, throw some stuff in there, and wa-la!

152
Teale December 2, 2011 at 7:10 am

I love my cookie scoop!

153
Karen December 2, 2011 at 7:10 am

I love my microplane grater. My favorite use for it is to grate frozen ginger to use in sauces and stir-frys. But I also cannot cook without my Wustof Santuko knife. I love it!

154
Nicole S. December 2, 2011 at 7:10 am

I DEFINITELY need that cut resistant glove. I cut myself chopping veggies ALL the time!

155
Amy December 2, 2011 at 7:11 am

The food processor is my favorite. When I first got it I had no idea what to do with it. But now I use if for almost everything: chopping veggies, mixing cookie dough, making masa for our homemade tortillas. I don’t know what I would do without it!

156
Jill December 2, 2011 at 7:13 am

It would have to be my microplane zester – I use it for everything – grating garlic as well as citrus. And I haven’t bought ground nutmeg in years – it just doesn’t taste the same unless it’s been freshly grated!

157
Jane Toms December 2, 2011 at 7:13 am

I love my large sharp knife. I went years without one and don’t know how I managed.

158
Jenna m December 2, 2011 at 7:15 am

That herb mill looks awesome. I think I would say I couldn’t live with out my knives but second would be my pampered chef heat resistant spatula. Thank you for the giveaway’

159
Tammy December 2, 2011 at 7:15 am

I have the herb grinder and it is one of my favorite tools . Lots of people on my Christmas lists received it last year. There is one for hard cheeses, too.

160
Monica December 2, 2011 at 7:17 am

Hi Amanda! Thanks for this opp! My fav kitchen tool has got to be my shears! I use them constantly!

161
Mary Katharin December 2, 2011 at 7:17 am

My husband – he does most of the cooking :) But I do all the baking and cannot live without my pastry cutter!

162
Jennifer Zaboj December 2, 2011 at 7:18 am

My can’t live without tool in the kitchen is a good knife – along with a pizza cutter!

163
Sandy_in_MD December 2, 2011 at 7:18 am

My favorite tool is our mini chopper. With just two of us, it is the perfect size and a lot less to clean up than our full size food processor.

164
sandy December 2, 2011 at 7:19 am

I love my mini spatula from Pampered Chef. The small size is perfect baking and serving.

165
Becky December 2, 2011 at 7:20 am

That herb tool looks so cool! My favorite kitchen tool would definitely have to be knives. Couldn’t do anything without those! I just wish I had good ones!

166
Jenna December 2, 2011 at 7:21 am

Awesome giveaway! The one kitchen tool that I couldn’t live without is my kitchen shears. I use them all the time to chop up salad!

168
Christa Griffith December 2, 2011 at 7:23 am

169
Katherine December 2, 2011 at 7:23 am

I couldn’t live without: kitchen shears, wooden spoons, & my toaster oven! Thanks for the giveaway!

170
Christine December 2, 2011 at 7:23 am

I love my French press coffee maker. We use it every morning and I think it makes the best coffee.

171
April Horak December 2, 2011 at 7:23 am

My favorite tool is actually my spatula, my heavy duty, “almost a spoon” silicone one from Pampered Chef. I can get every bit from my mixing bowls with it!

172
Fran December 2, 2011 at 7:26 am

Oh those look like fun. I never knew there was an herb cutter out there. I would love to try that! I can’t really think of what my favorite tool would be, nothing stands out to my memory right now. Maybe the stand mixer…. lol! All that recent holiday baking!

173
Emilie December 2, 2011 at 7:27 am

Its a tie between my ceramic paring knife and my cookie dough scoop!

174
Anne Vogt December 2, 2011 at 7:27 am

All the above tools look great, especially the herb mill! But my most used tool in my kitchen is the garlic press. We use it almost everyday.

175
Martha L. December 2, 2011 at 7:28 am

A good zester makes a recipe just perfect.

176
Tessa Darling December 2, 2011 at 7:28 am

I love my Pampered Chef garlic peeled and slicer set!

177
Amy S December 2, 2011 at 7:28 am

I love my mini food processor. It saves me so much time, especially when I’m cooking cajun dishes that rely on a finely chopped “trinity”.

178
Hollie H. December 2, 2011 at 7:28 am

I love my cheese grater!!! I use it almost daily!

179
Toni December 2, 2011 at 7:29 am

hmmm…. i LOVE kitchen gadgets!! Right now, my favorite is my cheese grater. I use it almost everyday for nice fresh cheese. Thanks for the chance of winning these great products!

180
Andrea Haywood December 2, 2011 at 7:30 am

My coffee grinder!! B/c it’s built into my coffee pot. I will never go back to pre-ground coffee!!! :)

181
Michele V December 2, 2011 at 7:30 am

Wow Amanda that’s a nice giveaway! hmm right now my fav tool seems to be my garlic press but that herb mill looks like it would be a great addition!

182
Denise December 2, 2011 at 7:30 am

I’d love to try the herb mill. I never cut my herbs evenly, and often break skin! Ugh! Maybe the safety glove too, since obviously I’m accident prone!

183
Emily December 2, 2011 at 7:30 am

I could not live without my whisks. I have about 5 and use at least one everyday!

184
Lizzie December 2, 2011 at 7:30 am

I can’t live without my Kitchenaid mixer. It has been a godsend for me.

185
The Mrs @ Success Along the Weigh December 2, 2011 at 7:32 am

What great gadgets!!

The one I can’t do without is the mini adjust a cup measurer. It has been a God send in my weight loss measuring out condiments or hummus or whatever into perfect 1 or 2 tbsp servings! I’ve got two I use them so much!

186
Kori December 2, 2011 at 7:32 am

I received a Williams-Sonoma Chef’n Garlic Zoom Chopper as a gift once and it has come in real handy when I have lots and lots of garlic to chop. Like making garlic & oil spaghetti or shrimp scampi. You place the skinned garlic cloves in the unit and then “roll” it around the counter top and the mini-blades inside chop it up perfectly! Even comes with a tiny spatula to scrape out the bits inside. It’s a great gift idea.

187
Laura December 2, 2011 at 7:32 am

Herb mill!!! Without a doubt!!!

188
Sarah D. December 2, 2011 at 7:34 am

I would say my stick emersion blender. I make a lot of soup during the Fall and Winter and using the stick blender makes it so easy.

189
Kim Caldwell December 2, 2011 at 7:34 am

Mine is my peeler. With young kids, everything needs to be peeled!

190
Katie Parrington December 2, 2011 at 7:35 am

I love my mini food processor/chopper, but boy does the microplane herb mill look fab!!!

191
Meredith December 2, 2011 at 7:37 am

Flat bamboo spatula from Pampered Chef. I’ve had them for years, use them constantly, and they look brand new. The flat end is great for breaking up whatever I’m stirring.

192
CHERIE MISTRETTA December 2, 2011 at 7:37 am

My favorite kitchen tool is the microplane I use it for everything. I’d love to win the other tools and could always use another microplane:)

193
Jane December 2, 2011 at 7:37 am

Wooden spoons are a favorite here. I believe the micro planner would soon become a favorite, too.

194
Kelly Williamson December 2, 2011 at 7:38 am

My favorite tool is my super sharp knife. I felt like such a grown up when I bought real knives!

195
Aimee M December 2, 2011 at 7:39 am

A really good chef’s knife! It’s an investment, but completely worth it in the long run.

196
Rachel December 2, 2011 at 7:39 am

I can’t get along without my peeler! I keep buying them occasionally in hopes of finding one that works best for everything….

197
Tania K. December 2, 2011 at 7:40 am

Pizza cutter: for cutting those impromptu quesadillas for my 3-year old ;-)

198
Sarah December 2, 2011 at 7:41 am

My crock pot! I’m a busy mom of three kids aged 2.5 and younger and eating a nutritious family dinner is really important to me. I love being able to toss everything together while the kids eat breakfast and enjoy it as a family hours later!

199
Diane@LongabergerLifestyle December 2, 2011 at 7:41 am

It’s really surprising how many times I use my stick/immersible blender. And it so easy to use and clean.
For all my kitchen tools/gadgets I’ve never treated myself to a microplane. This giveaway would make my day!!!

200
Debby J December 2, 2011 at 7:41 am

Pampered Chef’s Mix ‘n Chop is the one thing I wouldn’t want to live without. I love that gadget so much I have 2 of them.

201
Dana December 2, 2011 at 7:42 am

Definitely a knife.
