This weekend, I wandered into William Sonoma while I was waiting for my son. Do you know that it has been a few years since I have been there and now I remember why I stay away. It gives me a serious case of the “gimmies.” I just love all things kitchen gadgetry, and that store is a slice of heaven for the foodie in me.
Am I the only one who could just spend hours looking at kitchen gadgets? It kind of makes me think I am getting old, like when I get excited about the thought of a new vacuum. I love the demos at William Sonoma and definitely realized I “needed” the filled pancake pan. Yes, I “needed” it and I didn’t even know it existed before Saturday. The guy was definitely doing his job because a bunch of other people realized that they couldn’t live without it either, especially at half price. I then picked up and dreamed about a kitchen full of Le Creuset cookware that so many of you recommended a few months ago when I asked for suggestions. What impressed me with that recommendation was that even though it was pricey, so many of you mentioned it had been handed down and still going strong. I love the thought of that generational legacy within the kitchen. Ok, so I admit, it’s a want, not a need, but a worthwhile investment, none the less. After ogling each item, I left…empty handed because any of my fun kitchen toys are coming from amazon and the swagbuck gift cards that I have earned.
I’ve been loving my new Better Homes and Gardens cookware, but I am still in search of a large skillet, which is one of my daily use pans. I found out that William Sonoma is offering 20% off all Cookware when you enter coupon code WSCOOK20 at checkout (through December 12), so I am looking into my options.
As we all think of things to buy for everyone else, I’m curious as to what one kitchen type gadget would you put on your Wish List? I think it would be fun to read some of your suggestions.
