  1. That automatic pot stirrer would be heaven. I certainly wouldn’t need it for every day, but when making something like slowly sauteed onions this would be heaven.

  2. Yep, I definitely love the apple peeler – and I usually hate gimmicky items like that. Thanks so much for sharing at the #happynowlinkup!
