I own a… hm. I finally got a pretty bog standard kitchen scale to use for baking. I’ve been using a mismatched set of measuring cups for years.
I’d LOVE a sous vide machine, and there are some that aren’t too pricey, but what keeps me from either buying it myself or hinting around that I want it as a present is the whole vacuum sealer/bagger thing, which I imagine is a ‘printer-printer ink’ sales model so that every time I use it, I have to figure in another $1.50 per bag used into meal costs and I really don’t have the storage for it and I’d come to seriously resent the plastic costs
I’d say one of those whip cream dispensers so I can make microwave angelfood cake and do cool choc. mousse cups, but I remember whip-its from college, and that seemed like a really good way to fall off one’s chair and crack one’s head on the coffee table. Which I did. So no more of THAT, thankyouverymuch.
I would totally get soy lecithin powder, as I’m told it makes mayo and cheese sauces super smooth. And that meat-glue stuff looks like a way to make some truly bizarre… creations.
But what I really want is a kitchen-aid mixer.
