What are your favorite kitchen tools that lend themselves well to NT food preparation? I have some birthday money that I need to spend

Which is better (easier to use/clean, and safer): ceramic cookware, or cast iron?
Does anyone have the wheat grinder attachment for their kitchenaid mixer? Are you happy with it? Where do you purchase wheat berries?
What is your favorite dehydrator?

My workhorse is my cast iron skillet. Also all my Pyrex baking dishes, and my slow cooker with the ceramic pot. I use a coffee grinder (stainless steel blades) to grind flour in small batches. I can't afford an electric mill. I use Bob's Red Mill organic wheat berries. Their catalog store isn't far from my mother's house, so when I visit her I stock up.

My most used piece of kitchen equipment is my food processor. It has even replaced my stand mixer, as it has a bread blade attachment that works as well or better. I use it to shred, slice, to mix, stir, etc.

Other than that, I'd also say a coffee grinder, as you can grind whole spices, seeds, nuts, flour, etc. in it. Very handy little gadget. Oh, and a really, really fantastic chef's knife is invaluable in any traditional kitchen, IMHO. Baking stones are wonderful, too, if you do much baking at all.

I don't have a dehydrator yet, so I'd love to know about that, too. I've heard good things about the Excalibur, but it has plastic trays, which I'm not so crazy about. I'd like to find one that works as well, but with stainless steel trays.

FWIW, I purchase wheat berries from Azure Standard. Don't know if they havea route in your area, but you can order a lot of their products via UPS, too.
