Would a dishwasher be considered a gadget??? After living in temporary housing and using what they provide, I'd say a good kettle or pan and a sharp knife. The rest I can wing.

Yikes, I can only choose 1 thing that I can't live without in my kitchen? Then I'm going to have to chose my kitchen scale. I'm currently on Weight Watchers and my hardworking scale has kept me honest (and have helped me to lose 18 lbs! w00t!).
