I was newly married when I went to a Pampered Chef party.  I fell in love with these scrapers. 
They are so high quality and last a long time.

My sister introduced me to these silicone basting brushes. 
They are so much better then the basting brush with natural bristles.

I can not say enough good about our Food Processor.  It is a little pricy but so worth it.  I use it for so many things but to name a few: shredding cheese and potatoes, making guacamole, chopping peppers and onions for making salsa. LOVE!! LOVE!! LOVE!!

Another gadget I love is my kitchen aid.  There are not many days that I don't use it for something.  It is so worth the investment in my opinion.  My sister also loves her Bosch so that's another idea for you.

I was reading an article that listed 10 Essential Kitchen Tools according to Martha Stewart thought it had the basic of a good place to start for kitchen tools.....

1. Sharp high-quality knives

Every cooking expert will tell you that sharp high-quality knives top the list of kitchen essentials. The life stylist also suggests a sharp paring knife and serrated knife.

2. Hardwood cutting boards

Cutting boards are invaluable in the kitchen. They not only protect your counter, they help keep knives sharper and allow you to easily transport cut food from one place to another.

3. Mixing bowls

A durable (and even colorful) set of mixing bowls can make your meal prep time less messy and more efficient.

4. Measuring cups and spoons

One set of measuring cups and spoons is essential, but two or more sets will allow you to measure different ingredients in similar amounts without having to wash and rewash.

5. Grater

A grater is the perfect tool for shredding cheese, but this multi-purpose gadget is ideal for grating other flavorful ingredients.

6. Sieve or strainer

One of French's favorite kitchen tools, a sieve or strainer can be utilized for a wide range of kitchen needs.

7. Whisk

Whisks are another invaluable kitchen tool that can be used for both wet and dry ingredients.

8. Wooden spoons

Wooden spoons are ideal for stirring sauces and batters as well as serving food and tossing salads. Buy a variety of different types of wooden spoons and keep them within arm's reach while cooking.

10. Kitchen tongs

Another nifty kitchen tool, kitchen tongs can meet many kitchen needs. Tongs can be used to toss pasta, vegetables and salad before serving.
