What appliance/gadget have you under-appreciated, but now grown to love?

I have three: My little George Foreman grill. Was given it as a gift, and it sat un-opened for years. Gotta say, I love that little thing. Great for grilling up a couple chix. breasts or small steaks, makes really good paninis, hell, I even used it to make french toast when my stove conked out during a brunch. #2: a pressure cooker. Same story; a gift that sat there...then I busted it out and broke it in (after much fear of my mom's exploding chicken dish of my youth....). How did I live without this wonder tool? #3: (And I am embarassed to say this) My Kitchen-Aid stand mixer. A hand-me-down from the folks, lived in my basement because it wouldn't fit under my cabinets. Dragged it up and cut a small notch in the molding under the cupboard so it can slide under now. Can't imagine making bread, pasta dough, cookies, cakes without it. Have also added the pasta roller attachment and the meat grinder. Nothing like a fresh ground burger on a home-made yeasty bun.....mmmmm! What gadget or appliance have you treated like a poor relation, that you have now grown to love? Adam
