My Top 10 Kitchen Gadgets

Posted by MarkCharles Misilli 1333115751.59
I'm always being asked what a well-equipped kitchen should have, so I thought I'd put together a list of my top 10 gadget essentials for you. Each item listed here serves a specific purpose and truly makes your everyday kitchen tasks easier. Plus, they're so much fun to use that you'll be inspired to create even more dishes for your friends and family to enjoy. What could be better than that?
My Top 10 Must-Have Gadgets for a Well-Equipped Kitchen:
  1. 4-qt Kitchen Scrap & Prepping Scoop by MarkCharles Misilli (K33856)
  2. Kuhn Rikon Ultimate Can Opener with Auto-Attach Feature (K18779)
  3. Kuhn Rikon Kitchen Shears & Household Set (K35518)
  4. Kuhn Rikon Set of 2 Glass Crushgrind Ceramic Grinders (K35520)
  5. Kuhn Rikon 2-piece Cool Gripper Set (K28859)
  6. The Ultimate Stainless Steel 4th-Burner Pot by MarkCharles Misilli (K34869)
  7. Orka Set of 2 Flexible Silicone Food Steamers (K16176)
  8. Folding Island Rectangle Kitchen Cart with Butcher Block-Style Top (K28247)
  9. Stainless Steel Pineapple Slicer (K37059)
  10. Kuhn Rikon Polka Dot Peekaboo Knife Sharpener (coming very soon!)
And be sure to check out my page to see my first ever 10-piece cookware set. It's a terrific set at an incredible price—and of course it's available in a variety of fabulous colors! A good cookware set is a kitchen essential for any cook out there, so I wanted to toss that in as well!

The shipping on this item is almost as much as the cost.

When someone tells you that you have changed, it simply means you have stopped living your life their way.

Oh My Gosh. I have some form of eight of the above items.

I am loving the Orka, recipes are very very limited, I think a cookbook would be a good idea! I'll help you {#emotions_dlg.rolleyes}

Hi Mark,

I was really considering the kitchen mats that you presented on today's show as I really need something when I do my dishes. That was until you mentioned the use by the TSA. I don't believe that these kind of people deserve any kind of comfort when their mission is to make the rest of us uncomfortable. Please refrain from mentioning this illegal organization as it really turns your customers off.

Hi Mark,

I dont need a whole new set of cookware - but would love a skillet or two in your new non-stick.

I enjoy your shows and products.

Hi Mark, I have to tell you, I really enjoy your presentations and the products you bring. My goal is to eventually re-outfit my kitchen with more of your products. Not to get all gushy, but I really do LOVE my Kuhn Rikon Ultimate Can Opener with Auto-Attach Feature that was my first KR purchase. I can't believe the ease of attachment, but everytime I go to grab the lid with the little bird beak thing, I have to laugh. I just used the "hook" to lift a lid on a can of crushed pineapple the other day. I cold go on, but I'll just say that is one AWESOME tool! I may have to get a couple to gift to my sisters.

Chef Mark Charles,

I have your grippers set and your cookware set in red and enjoy using both. However, I did not receive the sautese pan with my cookware ... which unfortunately I did not discover until later when I compared my set to the one listed on the QVC website. I would love to complete the set but QVC has no solution except for me to send the set I have back. Is there any way you can help me get the sautese pan to match my set? My sautese pan must be floating around there somewhere. Many thanks!!

Mark, When will the ultimate stainless steel 4th burner pot be returning? Hope it's not gone forever, I wanted to replace a colored pot with this one.

Thank you Mark Charles for everything you do. I have purchased every item that you have presented. I do not believe that you receive the credit due to you. You are so talented. Thanks so much.

I have to have more 4th burner pots...I love it for everything and my husband uses this one all of the time. In fact, we are fighting over who uses it and he is winning...Save our marriage Mark, please bring them back...I do have just about all 10 items but, this is our favorite...

Will you be bringing back the 3qt fourth burner pot?

I really enjoy your presentations. I have a request. Please offer a set of the Kuhn Rikon non spill lids that include both sizes. It would be a great Christmas present or TSV. Thanks and keep up the good work.

Rachael...I have been a QVC member since day one, and enjoy it so very much. You are a new host and talk WAY to fast!! When you co-host with Jayne, Pat, or Mary Beth, you try to dominate the program and can't ever be quiet! You unfortunately sound like a car salesman who is working for a commision! Please try to talk in a slower tone and accept the fact that you are still in the learning stage of being a program host. When you talk to callers, you sound fake and not like a sincere person. Host with your heart like Mary Beth, Pat, Jayne, Jackie, Amy, Jill, Carolyn, Lisa, Leaha, Dan, Rick, Dan, David and Sharon. I know if you try you will settle down as a host and not be so giddy and talk to customers with sincerre kindness. Rachel, good luck and hopefully you can handle constructive cromments and move forward in a positive way!

Mark Charles, where can I find the Ultimate 5th Burner Stainless Steel Pot? I am just sick that QVC chose to discontinue selling one of your top 10 products. I wanted to give this as Christimas gifts this year. Thank you for your help. . . .

Since Mark hasn't yet replied, I will. I think you're actually referring to the 4th burner pot, which was demonstrated recently on a show with Rick D. The item number is K37643.

Mark, I really like the Fasta Pasta that made it so easy to cook pasta in the microwave. The problem is that you need a large microwave in order to use it. Is it possible to come up with a new one (possibly round shape instead of rectangular) that can be used in a small microwave? If anyone could manufacture one, I'm sure you could. I would definitely buy it at an affordable price.

I think the best item would be the spill stopper.I just wish you would offer it in one size smaller

Hello M.C.M,

I bought a Prepology Silicone Liner for my oven a long time ago, and just remembered I had it and put it in my electric oven. I had to remove it right away, as I put the liner on the bottom of the oven to catch drips, and the heating element is right above it. The liner started to smoke. There is nothing on the box about not putting the liner in an electric oven with a heating element in the bottom, so I am wondering if I should or should not use it in my particular oven. ( I noticed this item is no longer offered for sale.)

The Slide and Seal Bag Sealers are awesome.

Any chance you can offer these in a Mini Size ?
