Maya and I were discussing registering for wedding stuff so long ago and how much of a pain it was (okay 7 years and I have the itch for more kitchen contraptions).
Way back in 1998, you really couldn't register for that much stuff online - it's very cool to see a place like Cooking.com, with so many kitchen gadgets available have an online Wedding Registry. I can't tell you how much easier it would have been to discuss things at the store and then go home and really pick out things for our registry on the computer instead of arguing it out in the store.

If you don't own a Kitchen Aid mixer I highly recommend getting one, and if you do, the world of Kitchen Aid gadgets made for this mixer will open up to you. Right now at Amazon in the Kitchen & Housewares section if you purchase $125 you can save $25. I would recommend if you don't have a Kitchen Aid mixer to get one. The range of attachments to meet your cooking needs and style is stunning. I just found the ice cream maker attachment. I have to have it.
The Ice Cream Attachment looks amazing. We have the sausage maker attachment for our Kitchen Aid mixer, so I can imagine the ice cream maker attachment will kick butt. My daughter is 1.5 years old, and I really want to open up the world of ice cream making and all it's wonders to her. Hopefully we can order this tomorrow - if I beg Maya.
Visit Amazon.com and order the Kitchen Aid Mixer and Save $25

I've been obsessed with yogurt makers today. There are not a ton of them available from what I could find, but it looks to be a cheap thing to get into. $32 bucks with some shipping on top should get you yogurt a brewing in your kitchen in less than 10 hours.
Yogurt Maker by Girmi:
- Prepares yogurt in 6-10 hours depending on your desired thickness
- Allows you to control the sweetness, ingredients, fat content and thickness
- Makes up to 42 oz.
- Seven 6 oz. glass containers enables you to make seven different flavors at once.

iRobot has just announced a robot capable of making a difference in your kitchen finally. This is the ultimate kitchen gadget people! A robot that doesn't just do windows but messy floors! I couldn't be happier. I have wanted something to deal with the kitchen floor since I saw the original iRobot for rugs. The thing is - my house is void of any rugs really - we have tile and hardwood floors. I can't wait for this gem to ship in the Fall.

I always need to save prep time and also mess. With the Batter Pro you can bread chicken, fish and more fast, without messing with ziploc bags or getting your hands covered in egg, milk, or whatever concoction you are battering with. Just fill The Batter Pro with batter, place meat inside, shake and flip. Also - it's dishwasher safe. I think this may be a purchase in the near future.

I really need this. I am so tired of grabbing the soap bottle, dumping it onto the dishes and/or brush and then having to close the bottle, set it down - etc. OXO really makes amazing products that solve two or even three step problems into one gadget.
OXO Good Grips Soap Dispensing Kitchen Brush:
Washing dishes just got easier with Oxo's Soap Dispensing Kitchen Brush. The Brush has a soft button that doubles as a seal; just pull open the seal and fill the clear body with soap. Reseal the opening, and you?re ready to dispense soap with the press of a button. Sturdy nylon bristles are perfect for scrubbing, and the Brush is dishwasher safe. The soft handle absorbs pressure and keeps your hand comfortable as you scrub.

Living Comforts has a really nice selection of canisters. I would love to ditch my old set of blue canisters you could get anywhere with a set of these babies! They look like 2 silver bullets!
Living Comforts Store:
These canisters are the latest in design with their dome style lid. These canisters have a window for you to see what is stored inside. These canisters come in a set of 2 and are available in one size. These are a perfect match to the Retro Style Step cans.
This little number is amazing. I'm not that interested in having coffee with Jennifer Jason Leigh, but I am interested in pulling out this little number at a gathering for all to view. It's just really...pretty.
Popgadget: Personal Tech for Women:
I have just in the last week come to terms with my caffeine addiction when I was observed having Jennifer Jason Leigh in Rush-like crashes when I didn't have a coffee by mid-afternoon. At one point I got desperate enough to guzzle Red Bull just so I could stand up. I wish I'd had an Aroma espresso machine instead. It's a personal espresso machine that's small enough to carry in your handbag or briefcase so you can brew a cup no matter where you are. The clear cylinder lets you watch the coffee brew as you agonizingly wait for it to finish.

Summer is fast approaching. It's going to be hot - very hot. You will need a snow cone maker for:
- Keeping the kids in check
- Feeling empowered that the Snoopy Snow cone machine can be beat
- That a snow cone made by you - an adult can taste better than snow
- And most of all to enjoy eating flavored ice in the blistering heat
Rival Snow Cone Maker :
Having purchased snow cone makers for years I can attest to the simplicity and safety of this machine. The blade is tucked away not out where a child or young adult can shave off skin while using or cleaning. While all electrical appliances require adult supervision until an older age, I am really impressed with this machine for safety.
