    Based on how often I use them (though not necessarily in that order)...

    Stove top espresso pot
    Blender
    Single serve blender
    Pressure Cooker
    Coffee grinder
    Food processor
    Griddler
    Measuring cups and spoons
    Food scale
    Computer - it may not reside in the kitchen, but I'm constantly looking up nutrition info, recipes, etc. with it.

    Some great lists. I should probably have included my iPad on my list, like Joanies computer my iPad spends a lot of time in the kitchen looking up an array of cooking stuff.
