I think for the kitchen you would want something small and unobtrusive. There is a new product on the market from PowerQ, it is designed to work with laptop tuners, but should be ideal for you. It has a cool element that pops up. I think it performs better than the Terk/a. I am in Orange County, CA and can pick up over 30 stations. The key for me was it had to be small so I can take it on travel. I watch TV at the airport when I am waiting for my plane. Picture is amazing. The model number is PowerHD-100

I would recommend the Philips SDV2211/17 antenna while sits flat on any surface. It picked up the most digital stations over the other brands that I tested (RCA, Terk, and other Philips model). This model doesn't have the amplification option (no A/C power).

I would recommmend the SS-3000 from Winegard. Many current indoor HDTV antennas on the market are UHF only. These are fine for picking up digital stations in your area currently, but June 12th many stations will be switching back to VHF frequencies. An antenna like the SS-3000 is one of the few that can actually pick up VHF. That is why it is slightly larger. Another low cost solution would be the ANT1050 from RCA.

We set up our new Tivax cable box at our city place with a bent paper clip for the antenna, and we receive 22 stations clear as a bell.

Thank you Antenna Guru for the comment about the digital stations which pick up UHF and VHF. Now I know what to do. In my bedroom my Terk HD antenna will not pick up these four channels; #7-1, 9-1, 11-1, and 13-1. An Hour before reading your comment I had saw a area coverage list that said that these 4 channels in my area are "H-v" and all the other stations which I have no problem with are UHF.
I didnt know what "H-v" meant until reading your comment. That's when it clicked that the H-V is probably VHF. I'm going to buy the Winegard SS-3000. Thanks.
