I grew up watching Martin Yan on Yan Can Cook. Since then I've inherited a Chinese Cleaver that I think belonged to my grandmother. For mashing garlic, ginger, I always go to that rather than my microplane, graters, or any number of other fancy tools just like I learned from Martin Yan 30 years ago. One Giant whack, and I have instant garlic, ginger puree.

Here's a Martin Yan video, for anyone interested: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KRrsifp2FpA

On another note, I could really use the thermometer. I actually just put the exact model on my Christmas list last week!

A simple toaster oven. I use it for literally everything that doesn't require a cook top. It's more efficient than a full oven, the broiler element is in an extremely close proximity to the food, and it heats up in a fraction of the time.

I make everything in my ninja. Cheese straws dough, Biscuit dough, cookie dough, cakes, mixed drinks, and of course anything i need to chop up goes in there as well. I have burned up every mixer I have ever purchased making divinity and cheese straws. So the NINJA is my secret weapon of choice.

I really like my egg slicer. It makes egg salad a breeze and eliminates time consuming chopping.


I like my egg slicer too, from everything from eggs to mushrooms to strawberries.

But I have yet to find a brand whose wires don't break after a while. Goy any recommendations?

I have to agree with the 8" chef's knife.

I like to use a simple pocket thermometer instead of the digital ones. Every time I try to use my digital thermometer, it's out of batteries and I'm not even sure it's that accurate. My simple chefs pocket temperature indicator works like a charm.
