Foodie Friday - Kitchen Gadget Wishlist

I don't know about you but my kitchen cupboards are filled with kitchen gadgets. There's the hand blender, the juicer, the food processor, the popcorn maker, the George Foreman Grill, the sandwich toaster, and the deep fat fryer - Do I need to go on? The thing is though I love a bit of gadgetry, and more so in the kitchen. Gadgets really can change how, and what you cook. Yes I know some end up at the back of the cupboard unwanted, unloved  and gathering dust, but choose carefully and choose a good one and you'll wonder how you ever lived without it. 

Despite having more gadgets than I can shake at stick at I still want more, to help me to experiment more and have fun in the kitchen. Some of these gadgets are sensible and very on the spendy side, some are more frivolous, and more budget friendly. I've provided some random links for each item, just so you know what I'm talking about but most of these items are available from numerous retailers.

This first part of my wishlist contains a nice mix of fun and serious items. Cake Pops are a huge thing at the moment, and what could be better than cake pops in the shape of a Hello Kitty head. I love the idea but I think my decoration may leave a bit to be desired. Next up a candy floss maker, sorry sugar police but the taste is so, so good, who doesn't love that burnt sugar taste, it's a winner  with both the kids and the adults, and fun to make. 

The next two items are a little bit more serious but no less fun. The Kitchen Aid - which serious baker or cook doesn't want one of these. Is it wrong that I want one of these purely for butter cream? Holding a hand whisk for 6 minutes doesn't half take some doing, and this would definitely ease the pressure, not only that but they look so good on the worktop, almost stroke able even - love it x 

Finally a Tassimo machine, I've wanted one of these for ages, I love the ease and convenience of the pod systems and I've heard some good things about this one. Mummy Lou isn't as keen as me but she is a huge fan of Costa coffee so I may win her round x 

I've seen a couple of  demonstrations of the Yonanas Frozen Dessert Maker on television, and I believe it's the one that Fleur De Force has, I'm sure someone will correct me if I'm wrong though, and it looks fab. It makes healthy ice cream and frozen desserts using fresh fruit in just 2 minutes.

Ah, the Actifry, several bloggers have one these and I have to say I'm really keen. I normally do my Slimming World, esq chips in the oven but one of these would make it quicker and easier, and I also like that you can use it for other things including stir fries.

A similar thing to the Yonanas admittedly but with a bit more va va voom. 2 litres of fresh, homemade ice cream, where you know everything that's gone into it, in 25 minutes? Yes please :)

The final item on my current kitchen gadget wishlist post is a spiraliser. Despite the inclusion of some naughty gadgets I'm still trying to lose a bit of weight. I'm struggling at the moment though and as per usual I'm blaming my reliance on carbohydrates. With one of these I could make my own courgette noodles to have instead of pasta to help me fill up and not fill out. Whilst I would love all of these things this one is at the top of my wishlist and probably one of the most obtainable.

I showed Mummy Lou this wishlist and her response was "Where on earth would you keep all that? You'd need to turn the whole house into a kitchen cupboard!" She's right I guess all this stuff would take up an awful lot of room but it's nice to dream, and you can always find space if you really want something ;) What kitchen gadgets do you use most often? and which ones are on your wishlist? Leave me a comment and let me know, and I'd also love to know what you think about wishlist posts in general x Thanks for reading xx
