pink_toasterYou’ve had a rotten sleep. You’re facing a long, long week of work. Your youngest is probably coming down with another ear infection. Things are looking pretty bleak. Then you walk into your kitchen, see you sparkling pink KitchenAid toaster and a smile breaks out across your face. How could you not smile when you see that cheery appliance?

So put this toaster in your list for Mom’s Day (even if, technically, it is an appliance and we know that’s a no-no in the gift department). The news gets even better. The toaster sells for $59.99 and $10 goes to Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation (CBCF). Maybe someone will use this handy gadget to make you breakfast in bed.

I’ve always wanted one of these. Everyone with a television cooking show has one. I’m not sure what I would do with it, since my baking is limited to a batch of biscotti in December and scoop’n’bake muffins from Mom’s Pantry Products. But damn, the KitchenAid Stand Mixer looks good, doesn’t it? And after 90 years onkitchenaid_mixer_90th the market, it’s as popular as ever thanks to tweaks that make it more than a pretty appliance. For example, the professional style bowl-lift design accommodates 12 to 14 cups of flour, enough to make up to 13 dozen cookies or eight loaves of bread. Whoa, way out of my league. But I’d still like to get one just to bling out my kitchen. From $240 to $545 at major department stores.
