I like it so much I couldn't bear to see it buried at No. 55 in the other thread on overpriced gadgets: It's a genuine Cuisinar food processor, about $200 four or five years ago. We had a cheap one, $39.95 or something, and it died, When I went to replace it, the Real Thing was on sale, and I lost control of my Visa card and bought one. Aside from the initial shock, I've never been sorry a day in my life. Every time I use it, I appreciate it.

Other candidates: A Kitchen Aid mixer I've only had for about a month. I'm still thinking up excuses to use it, but MAN, it's fun to watch.
And a ~$300 set of Calphalon-clone pots and pans from Costco. That one was a gift, and when I opened it I sneered, because a real cook can do the job with a frying pan and a couple of hubcaps. But I've had it two or three years now, and I rarely saute an onion or make a stew without mentally thanking the person who gave it to us.

Sorry, I don't mean to rain on your parade, Cory. I always wanted to have a food processor. Until my roommate got one. I just cut my finger while washing my roommate's food processor. She used it to grate a block of cheese. When I cut my finger, I thought, "Why on earth am I washing five awkward pieces of a huge food processor and getting my finger cut, when you can buy grated cheese at the store?"

Grated cheese is the best thing since sliced bread.

Because freshly grated cheese is even better. ;)

You don't need a bulky machine to grate some cheese, it uses up ore elbow grease than a simple thing like this:
