Calling all cooks: your favorite RV kitchen tools

Given that space, weight, and power are all considerations, what are your favorite kitchen tools/gadgets/small appliances etc.? What can't you live without? Are there items you thought you would use, but have found you don't?

Some of mine, so far... (these are NOT affiliate links!)

silicone lids for pots (lighter than metal, easy to clean, easy to store) https://www.amazon.com/Silicone-Suct...icone+pot+lids

hand-blender based multi tool (smaller/faster than my small food processor at home, beats taking the Vitamix along) https://www.amazon.com/Immersion-Ble...+multifunction

reusable stretch lids (reduces use of saran-wrap, lightweight, easy to store and clean https://www.amazon.com/Reusable-Sili...l+covers&psc=1

Looking forward to hearing what you do and don't use!

mini keurig! I keep basic pots/griddle/frying pan, cutting board, small drying rack, a small dish drying mat, a toaster, a few bowls, plates (corning ware and paper), cups, silverware, can opener, wine opener, bottle opener, sharp knives, potato peeler, spatula, some cheap tupperware containers, a couple glass baking dishes for casseroles etc, a crockpot, etc. Basically stocked similar to a college kitchen for dishes, etc. I only use one at a time when it comes to keurig and toaster. Keep in mind, for storage I have a 5er with lots of cabinet space and weight is not a concern. We also always camp with at least 30 amp and preferrably 50 amp power.

6 Qt Instant Pot (electric pressure cooker) and bread machine! We travel six months a year and I cook all of our meals in the camper. I make pizzas, rolls, muffins and breads from the bread machine and amazingly wonderful things from The Pot!

Neighbors are always glad to find us next to them!

My favorite is a Yoshi copper grill mat ( available from Bed Bath and Beyond, two for $10). I use it on my outdoor grill to cook most anything: burgers, fish, steaks, sausage. Keeps food from sticking to grates and usually cleans up with greased lightening and a plastic scrub brush. You can also flip it over and use both sides.

all the stuff that asquared mentioned minus the keurig and toaster although we do have a coffee maker and a kettle (again only use one at a time). I also have my kitchenaid stand mixer, my food processor, rice cooker and waffle iron. I also do a lot of baking so I have assorted muffin tins, cake pans and casserole dishes. Oh, and I almost forgot!! My pizza stone and peel. Every Friday night is homemade pizza night in our trailer.
