White meat cooks faster.  It's why there is often a problem with dried out white meat if the dark meat is adequately cooked.

 

My method of turkey roasting involves layers of butter-impregnated cheesecloth protecting the breast until the last hour or so.  Also lots of basting.

 

I've long switched to cooking breast only roasts.

I use a tent made of aluminum foil over the breast until the last hour of cooking for similar reasons.  As well as plenty of basting with butter.

 

Or, you know, just fry the dang thing.

Lease used: food processor (mostly because I broke it the first time using it and have survived without since)

Most used: I'd say kettle/coffee maker but they're not gadgets, they're staples...  So rice cooker.  I spends more time on the counter being used than put away I think.

Least is probably a corkscrew and most would be the microwave.

Most used... probably the food processor? I'm assuming the can opener is too basic to count.

Note that the above is measured by my personal use, rather than "total household use", in which case it would undoubtedly be the Keurig machine and the milk frother. 

 

For least used, I'm going to say the Little bitty crock pot that came with my slow cooker. We use the big ones all the time, but I don't think we've ever used the little baby one.

 

Yiou didn't ask, but my award for most awesome goes to the sous vide machine that my lady gave me for Christmas last year. It's the bestest toy ever! :wub::wub:

(Even if she only gave it to me so I'd cook her a steak. :rolleyes:)

Least- the bread maker. It has not moved from its spot from the moment my wife and I had moved in here. I should probably dust it. ::P:

 

Most- hard to say, I don't really use that much in my kitchen, besides the usual suspects. I would say that the rice cooker is what I use most, and that's only a sometimes thing.

A spoon is not a gadget.

 

Least - espresso machine.  It never gets used because I now have a...

Most - Keurig.

Least - The electric ice cream maker

Most - My really good knives passed down to me from my grandfather.  Things are still razor sharp after almost ninety years.  Sure I take care of them but that's why they are still around and in such great shape.

Most used is my rice cooker. Nobody around here ever puts theirs away. Rice is essential to Cajun survival.

An honorable mention would be the convection toaster oven.

 

Least used would be my tortilla press. I love tortillas but I never use the poor thing.
