For me, it's the fridge. Preserves food for days, months, weeks, even years! And you can eat food straight out of the fridge, making it unnecessary to have a stove, if you'll eat sandwiches the rest of your life. On hot days, you can open the fridge and get a tarp and make your own "igloo".

I normally shy away from food related threads, but I am gonna chime in.

Immersion blender. EXTREMELY Versatile!

kitchen Aid upright, once again VERY versatile.

Knives(they are an appliance in my book).

1) rice-cooker - can't live without "gohan;"
2) George Foreman grill;
3) microwave oven.

We have a Cuisinart, but I'm not the one using it.

Coffee maker here also. BTW I hate when the filter sometimes gets folded over in my haste (or I don't put the pot on straight), then when I go back down to get my coffee there's water and grinds all over the counter.

hmm... most useful yet often overlooked until they break. Gotta be the garbage disposal on the sink or the dishwasher.

Most loved? Gotta be the knives for me as well. Sharpen twice! Once before cutting and once after cutting (or before putting away):D

I'd forgotten that things such as garbage disposals existed.

My wife is trying to kill ours (70's model Sears that came with the house) so she can get a new one LOL.

Our crockpot is always a nice welcoming when we come home from a long hard day of work. Da onolicious aroma of what's been cookin always greets you at the door. Besides that, gotta be my knives. Nottin fancy...picked up a mini set from Costco. They work great!!!

We used to have a pig that was our garbage disposal. But we killed him.

Ooooo! An expresso machine! I've always wanted one, but any device that makes caffeinated drinks is a yipeee for me. That and a good manual can opener are really important in my kitchen. I guess a can opener isn't really an appliance if it's not plugged in. Does my husband who sharpens knives really well count? A good sharp knife is important. I've found that if pressed, I don't need a microwave or a rice cooker. Can steam stuff in short amount of time and is healthier, can cook rice in a pot, and even a dishwasher can go without. The toaster oven, however, is a favorite of the kids for crunchy little pizzas and melted butter toast. Now I stay making myself all hungry!

Gas range and oven.

I can make hot ramen or saimin, or even stew with fresh market-bought vegetable. With fresh market-bought meat, I can roast, braise, fry, or stew. I can make warm or hot milk, melt chocolate, make popcorn, or cook rice (if my rice cooker is broken).

More importantly, it works 24/7 during power outage.

It's ESPRESSO, not EXPRESSO! cheese!

I like a little teapot, short and stout, cute little handle, cute little spout.
Drop in a Mighty Tea Leaf bag and let it steep,
Pour it quick or I'll fall asleep!

Right now, it's my Cuisanart Griddler. Made my first paninis tonite - mmm, mmm, good!
