Favorite Kitchen Gadget Party

Filed under: Household,Humor — Laura R @ 8:00 PM


Who doesn’t love a good blog party? When I first heard about this one I wanted so badly to join in. 
I grew up in a family that loved to buy the latest kitchen gadgets. 
Most were never used, but we had to have them.

Andy Rooney isn’t sure why he has the ones he has either, or exactly what all of them are for.

After looking around my kitchen I have another reason to be excited about this party.
Maybe some of you can show me what my gadgets do!

(Who wants to bet on my finding another “must have” item?)

I had really hoped to share this kitchen gadget moment with you.
Have a look at it later,  at your leisure.

Again, I swear, I had not even heard of VEVO.  Who knew?

Now go visit Lynn and all those rowdy kitchen gadget partiers.



  1. Aren’t gadgets great, it’s one thing we all have in common! Got a chuckle at your square hard boiled egg thingy:@) Loved the Andy Rooney bit, I have some of the things he was talking about!
    Thanks for playing along, Happy Valentine’s Day:@)

  7. I did weed out some of my gadgets a while back… I needed room! can you imagine that! but I think I still have a few that are new in box & big! ackk! my F.i.l. was one of those gadget seekers, terribly addicted. It was what he went to fairs for! He was any salesman dream… when he passed away I don’t remember how may do-hickeys and other unrecognizable things he had… and M.i.l. would not part with the majority… so now that she is gone, I don’t know who is in charge of the do-hickeys anymore?

LOVED the muppets and that chef was TOO CUTE!!! and Andy Rooney, WELL have to Love him and his “REALISM”, BUT he left out “ONE THING”, and that is if you keep in the drawer for long enough it becomes Vintage or antique and THEN you can move it to a “Different category” and “Different Drawer”!!!

  12. I recognize several of your kitchen gadgets because I have them myself, but haven’t used in a long time. Do you have a pasta jar/cylinder where you add hot water and boil your pasta? I do and have never used it! Thanks for your visit!

  16. Love the swedish chef clip…he is one of my favorite muppets!

    I also love the cow creamer in one of your photos! I remember playing with one of those with my kitchen set when I was a little girl….I must have swiped it from my mom’s kitchen! Brings back memories….I’m gonna have to check ebay and see if I can find one so my daughter can swipe it from my kitchen!

    Thanks for stopping by!
