I LOVE my rice cooker. It's a Hirojushi and it has always made rice perfectly every single time.

I also couldn't get by without my blender - an old Osterizer with glass jar. I use it for blending tofu for french toast (vegan), potato leek soup, potato kale soup, smoothies, etc.

I saw Macys is having a sale. This 450 watt awesome piece of machinery is on sale for $229.00 (normally priced @ $349 - on KitchenAid site it's $399!). Plus, you get a free attachment (by mail) - a food grinder, or a juicer....

I still don't have it in my budget to make this happen for myself (major bummer!), but for anyone interested, the sale ends the 23rd (I think).....

My Wok, a Joy Chen. I cook so many meals in that thing it's not even funny.

My wooden tools: spatula, spoons, ladles, stirrers, accumulated over years of going to the arts festival, all lefthanded--DH hates that part. When my big round rustic (handle like a smoothed branch, not straight) spatula broke, I shaped and smoothed it into a stirrer, my favorite tool, almost a wand in some ways.

My 1.5 quart Le Crueset pot. Now that I've gotten the skill of it, I like it better for rice than the rice cooker I'd been using almost daily. Realize though that I like the crunchy bits that we sometimes, not always, get on the bottom of the pot. Even some Japanese lament the loss of that with the near universal use of rice cookers nowadays.
