One gadget I'd love is a Zip Hydro tap but they're serious money when we already have a kettle and an ice and water dispenser in the fridge.
Rice Cookers also keep the rice warm for ages, so you can cook well in advance.

IE: you go shopping not sure how long you will be out, put the rice on b4 you go, come back with something that goes with the rice and voila 5-8 bucks worth of takeaway rice saved.

But it only takes 15 minutes to cook anyway.

It takes me 15 minutes to cook sticky slop....it takes the rice cooker 15 mins to cook perfect fluffy rice every time! I think it uses less water too.

Rice Cooker - number one gadget in our house. It has a 9 hour timer and a tray on top so you can steam vegies at the same time. Brilliant to use in concert with the slow cooker.

Also in high demand are the slow cooker, bread-maker, mini-blender, George Foreman Grill and Kettle.

A recent new contender is the dishwasher. We moved house on the weekend and there was one installed in the new place. God, we hate washing the dishes! It must be all the cooking we do with our appliances.

Trailing at the end of the demand spectrum is the Tassimo Coffee maker that we got for a wedding gift. Does anyone know where we can get the little pods that go in them? On the other hand, if you put the plastic cleaning disc in you do get instant boiling water, so it may just come in handy if the kettle decides to retire.

Oh can our Le Crueset dishes get a special mention? One cracked and they replaced it free of charge due to the lifetime warranty. Yay!
