You guys are making me remember some of the kitchen tools I have that I had forgotten I had! :P
This might be silly, but my electric kettle is my favorite thing. Dump water in it, turn it on and a hot cup of tea in the morning when I would otherwise be to lazy to boil water (or even stick the cup in the microwave).
My coffee maker, a good old brewing type. Coffee is affordable, piping hot and good and strong. I hate the instant individual plastic brew coffee makers out there. Waste, weak, not hot enough and they taste like instant.
