What kitchen / food appliances do you bring?

I'm curious what kitchen/food related appliances or gadgets you bring along.

The kitchen aid mixer (with the pasta attachment) was just mentioned in another thread and I got to wondering what other appliances folks use while camping.

I have a blender (I thought smoothies would be satisfying and easy) which so far we've used to make watermelon which wouldn't fit into the fridge into juice which would fit) a popcorn popper, and the ubiquitious drip coffee pot.

What do you bring? What do you want to bring? What great recipe / trick makes hauling the appliance completely worth the weight?

Most recently, a toaster oven. Does just as good or better than the gas oven and is alot easier to use.

We still take the 2 sllice toaster we've had since our pop up days, coffee maker and our deep fryer for those fresh caught crappies and jalapeño hush puppies....... mmm-mmm!

I was thinking of bringing the fryer but how do you store the fat securely?

I'm thinking that if we have a site with power it makes sense to use electricity rather than LP.

We bring an empty 64 oz container and when the oil has cooled, we poor it in the container using a funnel. I remember seeing at Lowe's a battery operated pump with filter to pump the oil back into it's container for future use. It was located near the large propane fish/turkey friers and peanut oil. Next time I go to Lowe's I may look for that again.

I have a large container with wheels that I purchased at wally world last year that I store the oil, small charcoal grill, charcoal, charcoal fluid and pecan wood chips in. I can load it in back of the truck and what I really like about it, it slides under the trailer with about 1" clearence. Keeps the racoons from getting into it at night.

I bring a toaster oven, a small size crock pot and a regular toaster. I am thinking of maybe bringing my magic bullet blender this summer so I can make smoothies.

We carry a big electric griddle for cooking breakfast. It works great on a small table outside under the awning. Keeps the bacon smell out of the trailer.

Coffee maker, small crockpot, electric skillet and two slice toaster.
I am thinking of adding a small toaster oven but don't think we would use it enough. We use the coffee maker and toaster all the time but the electric skillet and crockpot aren't used often.

Crock Pot - Used almost every trip, some great recipes are on the cooking section of this forum. Pot Roast and Lasagna are two.
4 slice toaster
Stand Blender (frozen drinks)
Hand blender (occassional use)
2 Burner propane camp stove
Coleman 2 burner propane grill
We do 99% of our cooking outside or crockpot! Seldom use the fiver oven and stove top.
