Small Appliances Must Have

There is a thread regarding what tool is a must have. On that theme, what small appliances would you not want to travel without? Am I safe in saying coffee makers are a given, or is that an assumption?

1. Crock Pot
2. Vacuum Sealer (put sweets in - keeps ants out)
3. Cusinart hand blender stick w/chopper/wisk attachment
4. Waffle Iron/Sandwich maker

Automatic coffee pot is an absolute necessity. I would add a rice cooker.

What do you use if you Boondock ? And have no electrical hook- ups besides an Inverter or Generator?

My electrolux vacuum, hand mixer, microwave ( to make tea in and other stuff), food grinder, blender, Thermos thermal cooker (don't leave home without it), mini food processor and a hot plate for when I am on shore power and cooking up a storm and canning it. RV freezers have limited space.

I would say that depending what you normally would use at home and would be lost without. A BBQ grill either charcoal or propane. If you are boondocking then a small generator (ie Honda 2000 watt/etc)

Best appliance ever! Presto Pizzazz bake oven! Can cook a multitude of different convenience foods, especially pizzas! This is a much welcomed addition to our RV appliance inventory for under 50 bucks.

Best appliance we ever bought. Grandson loves pizza and this saves using the oven. Works 100% 9" to 12" pizza in same time as an oven with no pre heating.

We've used it for chicken nuggets, cheesesticks, chicken wings, hot pockets, french fries, even bacon and hamburgers etc etc...... it will cook just about anything you can fit on the rotating tray AND things are crispy not all soggy like with a microwave.

A Tea kettle and french press works great for making coffee on the stove.
