I developed a four-part rating system based on 1-4 stars to rate all of the appliances and gadgets I have tried:

FUNCTIONALITY: easy to use? easy to store? easy to clean?

DESIGN/FASHION SENSE: does it have counter appeal? does it have quality parts or will it break?

FREQUENCY/BREADTH OF USE: can I make a lot of “stuff” with this? is this a week long love affair or is this a must have kitchen staple?

COST VALUE RATIO: is it worth the money?


Here is a list of all the kitchen gadgets I have reviewed on this website:

1.  Nutribullet

2.  Lodge Cast Iron Skillet

3.  Sur La Table Spiralizer

4.  Cuisinart Immersion Blender
