The Kitchn Reviews! 20 Tools and Appliances

Best of 2009

We know that many of you have small kitchens, and space is at a premium. Any tool that comes into your kitchen has to earn its place. So as we poke and prod, and test and review kitchen tools throughout the year, we're looking for the ones that will really be worth the money (and the cupboard space). Here are 20 tools we reviewed this past year, with all their pros and cons. Photos have captions with links to the relevant posts.
