Hey folks. I'm a recent college grad looking to stock up on kitchen accessories for as little money as possible. There are a few gadgets that are indispensible for the kind of cooking I do, and I'm pretty sure that for each high-quality, high-priced piece of equipment, there's a much less expensive, nearly as effective version.

So that's the challenge: come up with inexpensive but effective versions of the following equipment:

mandoline-type slicer
spice grinder (I assume a coffee grinder would do the trick)
hand blender

Any other advice on putting together a nice kitchen on a budget would be great... Cookware and knives are the trickiest -- I'll probably have to bite the bullet and drop some cash on those.
