These are two of my favorite kitchen supplies. First, the Rotato, which I inherited from my grandfather. Pop was an engineer. He liked gadgets, and he especially liked to fix them - to make them better. You will notice the Rotato bears none of Pop's duct tape, therefore it is the perfect kitchen tool. I sketched it after using it to peel a couple dozen apples.
My Mom gave me the Griddler Gourmet for Christmas one year after I asked for it specifically. It is AWESOME. I use it pretty regularly to make hot sandwiches, quesadillas, and whatever else I can think of.
