Just for fun, if you could only have one modern appliance/gadget in the kitchen, what would it be. Take it as given that you can keep your cooker/fridge/freezer/kettle, but what about all the rest.
As just discussed with Chris, mine would have to be the breadmaker, now that might be because it's still new and therefore a novelty (plus my crapness at making bread by hand) - but it's only a game, I can change my mind in a month.
Janet, is the microwave included in the 'given'. If not, then I think mine would be my first choice - as it has a grill etc.
Otherwise the one thing I use most is my handmixer, as I make a lot of cakes, and I prefer the result from the little handmixer to the Kenwood.
The Kenwood is an essential for my breadmaking - I do have a breadmaker, bought by my son & daughter, but I haven't used it.
The other gadget I use a lot is my whizzer - for whizzing the ingredients in soups - I make a lot of soups!
The rest seem to sit in cupboards, taking up space!
Mine is very simple....my hand held device for taking off those bottle tops and lids from jars that my hands just don't seem to manage these days....
Well done Janet, hope TA didn't notice we dared to get 'off topic' in the bread making area !!
Yes BS, I assume that the micro-wave is a given.
As already said mine has to be the slow cooker, if I look at the one item that I have used consistently over the last 4 years since I have been on my own it is my slow cooker, which I use for a variety of things.
I have reached an age where my train of thought often leaves the station without me...
The only gadget that I have is a mini food processor, it's driven by the stick blender - Kenwood Wizzard pro though mine hasn't the whisk.
I'll try that again!
It is between the toaster and the slow cooker. I think I could manage with everything else but nowhere to make toast would be a disaster in this house and no where to sling stuff in for a good old soup wouldn't be good either. I think the toaster has the edge though for being in constant use
Whatever is the world coming to when microwaves and toasters are given, now in my day.......
we used to do that too when we had an open fire. Been looking for a toasting fork for ages but never seen one for a long time.
Brings back memories of sitting with my Nana making toast. I can almost smell the aroma. It makes me want to have a go again. I'll have to find a toasting fork too.
At the moment my two best friends in the kitchen are my food processor since I am making soup so much and my new mini processor which is brilliant for making low fat dressings for the many salads I am having.
Old teachers never die, they just lose their class
The theme is 'only one kitchen gadget'.....now choose.... so stay on topic otherwise the spork will get you.....believe me....it's painful... even though I'm used to it.............
