Left off this list are the two most important pieces in my arsenal... the flour sifter and pastry cutter. I challenge anyone to make a decent cake/biscuit/pastry without a sifter. While you can cut fat without a pastry cutter, it goes a lot faster with one, than without. If I had five minutes to pack equipment for feeding people, Items one and two would be sifter and pastry cutter. Item three (and nearly as important) would be a big black skillet. I can do anything so long as I've my skillet, sifter, and pastry cutter. The rest of that stuff up there? Bah. Garlic crusher? Isn't that why they give out heavy mugs at software conventions? Rice Cooker? You mean a pot with a lid, right?
