We keep looking at rice cookers. I don't know that this one is any better than any others, but I like that it is stainless steel. And isn't how it looks really the most important thing? :-)
Producing restaurant-quality rice at home is practically foolproof with this 3-cup electric rice cooker and warmer. Multi-menu selections using micro-computerized Fuzzy logic technology control the temperature for efficient cooking of many different types of rice including white, sushi, porridge, brown, and quick cooking. The unit's automatic keep-warm function keeps rice at an ideal serving temperature until it's ready to be served. For added convenience, the appliance comes equipped with an extra-large colored LCD display with clock and timer function, a spherical inner nonstick cooking pan and heating system, a convenient detachable inner lid for easy cleaning, and a built-in retractable cord to help keep countertops tidy. Accessories include a measuring cup, nonstick rice spatula, and spatula holder. With its durable clear-coated stainless-steel exterior, the 450-watt rice cooker measures 11-1/2 by 9 by 7-1/4 inches and carries a one-year limited warranty.

It is supposed to be 70 degrees today, so I am pretending it is summer. Now, I don't like Jimmy Buffet or margaritas, but I do like other frozen drinks.
Far more than just an ordinary blender, the unit automatically shaves ice and blends up to 32 ounces of a favorite frosty drink, all at the touch of a button. Simply pour the ingredients into the glass jar and add ice in the top reservoir. Select how many drinks to make, and the machine automatically mixes the right proportion of ice with the ingredients. And the appliance actually shaves the ice, which is the key to delivering better drink consistency--no more chunks or watery drinks. Other highlights include simple front-access controls, a stable footprint, an easy-to-clean design, and a generous handle and drip-free spout on the glass jar for graceful serving.

I never use my food processor because it is such a pain to drag it out of the cupboard and set it up. I need this handheld food processor. It grates, slices, or shreds ingredients directly into the bowl or pan with the touch of a button on the handle.

This is a nice looking ice cream machine. It produces ice cream or other frozen desserts in half an hour and has capacity of approximately 1.5 quarts. The blade and cover remove for easy cleaning; the bowl cleans with hot water and a damp sponge. It is 12'' by 18'' by 11'' tall.

If you want a bread machine, but don't have a lot of room, this has a compact design. It makes a 1 pound loaf pan of bread. There are three levels of bread texture to choose from, and it has settings for French bread, dough, cake and jam, and cookie/pasta dough.

We grill just about every meal all summer long, and I miss it in the winter. We've been looking for an indoor grill and this looks pretty cool. This grill cooks with a combination of contact and radiant heat. It has a stainless steel tray for dripping fat, and the non-stick cast iron grill plate releases foods easily.

I think I've mentioned I'm not a juice drinker, but this juicer makes me want to be one:

Extra-large pulp container enables multiple juice servings.

There is no mistaking what you use this cooker for. This egg cooker can boil up to eight eggs and poach up to four. When the eggs are done, the cooker "chirps." The insides are dishwasher safe.
