What to buy from King Arthur Flour catalog

I just attended a baking demo put on by the King Arthur Flour company - got some great tips on pie crust. Also got a $10 off a $20 purchase from their catalog/website.
Anybody have a favorite gadget that I should get? I have yeast measuring spoon from them that measures the equivalent of single envelope, which I find really handy. They have some dough whisks that look really neat, along with bunches of other stuff - I feel like the kid in the candy store just looking. I do all kinds of baking - breads, pies, cookies, etc.
Thanks for your input!
The stuff I like from there isn't cookware but ingredients. Like fiori di sicilia, instant clearjel, espresso powder and Vietnamese cinnamon, SAF gold yeast.
Ok I do like the back to basics apple corer, peeler, slicer ( 5 bucks cheaper on Amazon)> Most of their cookware and equipment is cheaper elsewhere.
I want to take advantage of their free shipping on $60 orders and I'm also looking at things to add. I was wondering for how long does the SAF gold yeast last if kept in the fridge? I'm just starting to use yeast but its not used on a weekly basis so wanted to know if it would lose effectiveness fast or it would last a while.
Love the dough whisk, instant clear gel, culinary thickener, Princess cake enhancer, the plastic buckets for storing flours, I order my yeast in their 16 oz. bags and keep it in the container I ordered from them (freezer storage is best.) I love their catalog and have been ordering from them for years. They are always helpful if you need to call them for some reason. I'm about ready to place another order - thanks for the reminder!
I really like their rubber spatulas, unbleached cake flour, clearjel, complete fruitcake mix (the only mix I ever buy), cocoa powders.... I have bought a ton from them over the years.
