    I saw this post, Al Dente: Thoughts on Yesterday's Tools of The Trade...
    and thought, what tools wouldn't I give up? I'm not selling anything, so I'm not listing things like rubber scraper, spatula, oven mitts...

    Kitchen Aid Mixer
    Breadmaker
    Blender
    Microwave
    Microplane
    Electric Knife
    Bagel Ready Toaster
    Grill/Griddle Pan
    Mandolin Slicer

    I really use my food processor a lot, but if push came to shove, the blender and mandolin would take up less space and I'd still be ok. LOL!

    Two things I use all the time. One I need to replace because it is worn out now.

    Large hand held cheese grater (flat). (Also good for draining water from pans).

    Pampered Chef cooking oil pump spray bottle (best x-mas present ever).

    I use my processor for most grating of cheese. For the hard cheeses on pasta, the microplane.

    Those oil pump bottles rock! But I could get by without if forced to.

    Oh I need to add another, but I don't think it's available any longer. My Betty Crocker spatula, cake/pie cutter. I think I got it like 30 years ago for signing up for a club. Damn that thing works for everything from scraping stuff off of cooking sheets to frosting cakes. Cuts perfect slices of brownies, fudge, pies, cakes, quiches, and more. I'm pretty sure I got it free.
