Having just had all my stuff moved from storage and now into the flat where
I'm living (woot!!) I have realised you can get by with just a few
essentials (*) but having that next to useless kitchen gadget is handy......

- my jucier for using up all that fruit purchased on the health kick
- the crÍpe pan...
- bamboo steamer
- ballon whisks of many sizes
though my Mr Frosty doesn't get as much use as I would like......

I agree with the use of the use of the hand blender and had wish that hadn't
stayed in storage for so long.....

*I would add to simon's list a good corkscrew but then again I travel with
that, now in hold luggage after the parents had theirs (plural!) taken from
them on their way to Lourdes with a bunch of OAPs - they were talked and
whispered about afterwards while they merrily drank champagne instead!
