If you could only keep 5 kitchen appliances - Page 6

post #101 of 116
I would have:

toaster oven
coffee maker
crockpot
blender
microwave

That's all we have, actually. And I would happily lose the microwave. Oh, I think I have a tiny food processor, but I never use it. I like my Pampered chef food chopper and mandolin.

When I was growing up we had an electric can opener. I have not owned one in my adult life, but it seems like everyone had one when I was a kid.

Our home is older and there are not many electrical outlets in the kitchen, and even less counter space for appliances. Plus, I do not bake so we don't own mixers and bread machines and such.

If your appliances are getting regular use; I wouldn't consider them clutter. If necessary, find a way to better store them (build shelves or something).

coffemaker
toaster
food proccessor
blender
crock pot

I use the coffeemaker and toaster every day. The other ones only occassionally but I do like having them when I need them. We used to have a microwave and we were planning to get a new one but honestly I don' miss it at all.

My partner is a professional chef ... and this is what we have:

toaster
hand mixer
stick blender
coffee grinder
microwave

For what it's worth, we also only have three knives ... her treasured chef knife, a paring knife, and a bread knife.

I currently have:

Bread maker
Coffee pot
microwave
crock pot
toaster


That's it. I do have other appliances in storage, but I haven't used them in years. On a daily basis I use only the microwave. The others get used 1-2 times per week.

Sorry, I just had to add: We have our dishes and cutlery pared way down, as well (no pun intended :0). We have three people eating in the house, so we each have one plate, cup, bowl, spoon and fork. The rest are packed away. This prevents doing a lot of extra dishes, and frees up tons of space in the kitchen.

Hi Hippie mom, I'm in N. MI too!

My top 3 are used daily: CrockPot, Toaster, Bread Maker
Monthly are waffle maker, hand mixer, gForeman (6 I know )

We could live without the microwave or monthly stuff, but they are handy for certain meals. Everything else but dh's old college cofee maker and the mini whip has been cleared out.

I had a hard time choosing between the rice cooker and the wafle iron, but even though I LOVE our rice cooker, honestly the waffle iron gets used more often around here (and you CAN make rice in a pot, even though I hate to).

Personally, we have in our kitchen:
waffle iron
rice cooker
cuisinart
stick blender
mixer
coffee grinder
toaster

The only things that live on the counter are the mixer (too tall to store in a drawer) and the coffee grinder (used daily-we do manual drip). I use all of these at least weekly, except for the mixer and cuisinart (but when I DO use these, they're really the right tool for the job, so I'm willing to keep them around!). Also have a pressure canner and a crock pot in the basement--the crockpot is mainly used for canning (pumpkin butter, apple butter, etc).

If I could only have 5 from your list, I would keep:
Coffee Maker
Crock Pot
Kitchen Aid Mixer
Cuisinart Food Processor
Waffle Maker

However, a close 6th would be a yogurt maker.

These would be nice:
Pasta Maker
Bread Maker
Toaster

These I woud toss:
Hand Blender/aka Stick Blender
Vitamix Blender
Rice Cooker
Juicer
Panini/Grill
Electric Tea Kettle (our electric over takes 5 minutes longer to heat up)

Isn't it crazy how different all our top 5s are?
