Here is a great list of kitchen machines for holiday buying. Why kitchen machines? Because they do one job very good and help you get a home made dinner done faster.
Bread Machine: Zojirushi makes a great one pound machine that we like to use for whole grain bread and no-sodium pizza or calzone dough. Now we have a great, healthy, whole grain crust that is not messy.
Rice Cooker: this makes whole grain cooking so easy and attendance free.
Air Popper: Kids can make popcorn that is more fun and more healthful than the microwave variety.
Yogurt Maker: More fun for kids to encourage them to eat yogurt and fruit. Everyone loves what they make themselves.
Panini Maker: Now you can grill veggies and make fun sandwiches using more vegetables with this great grill.
CrockPot: This is an essential for cooking beans, healthy stews, whole chickens and soups.
Quesadilla Maker: This is our best choice because we make lowfat vegetarian quesadillas at least once a week.
