I've got 2 sorry as just can't separate them.
I love having a kitchen aid cake mixer, the thought of creaming butter and sugar by hand is way too overwhelming. haha.
The other is my magimix food processor. I just don't know what I would do without it.

I threw my mandolin away as I was always terrified of it and I knew I'd get rid of it when I had an accident with it so I cut out the middlemansmiling smiley. I've never found a stick blender can stand up to what I want it to do so it's the food processor for me - mine has three bowls so the small one is like using a stick blender and as I use it most days it sits on the bench. However, the appliance that's changed my cooking the most is the electric wok. I have an electric hob which is sooooo slow compared to the speed at which the electric wok heats up, and it's got a 7 litre capacity so you can cook big quantities in it. We eat mostly one pot meals and so I use it for almost everything including soups. As a result I only have one saucepan, for boiling pasta and eggs.

that’s the one I had. I also bought it at the Food Show and was impressed with what it did. I always used the guard. I cut myself badly when a V cutter was stuck and I pulled hard to get it out. I still get wobbly knees when I think about. It, hence my reluctance to use the o e I bought ages ago. The holder with the spikes is useless and it w ould be safer to use it without, alas...
