I am an appliance junkie. I have so many storage is becoming a problem. I do use them all though .
Latest favourite has to be my steamer, food just tastes so much better.

My favourite appliance would have to be my hand-held electric beater. Mr S bought me a new state of the art KitchenAid mixer some years ago when my Kenwood blew up (after about 15 years).
It is so useless that it's easier to either mix by hand or use my "red-shed" mixer.

The two things I can't do without in my kitchen are -my knives, kept sharpened the way I like them. And my cast iron frypan.

I bought a Sunbeam Mixer just over a year ago and LOVE it. It has a well shaped and decent size bowl, and the rotation of the bowl works really well.

My favourite appliance though would have to be my Crockpot. I bought my first one back in the late 70's. It was the Ralta and had a 2 year warranty. It lasted until 2 years ago when it finally gave up the ghost. I had bought my parents one at the same time and theirs lasted as long as mine did. I replaced it with the Sunbeam Crockpot, which is exactly the same as Ralta. I use it mainly when I'm on night shift. I get home from work and throw everything into the crockpot then go to bed. Dinner is ready bar the rice or amshed spuds when I get up.

I currently love my magic bullet which dad bought for me Christmas before last.  Perfect for fresh breadcrumbs, milkshakes. 


But I wouldn't be able to live without my knives and my skillet.

One of the funniest posts I've ever read was message #1 in a thread started by Ares Abani at the old Xtra News Community 2 group @ MSN on 26th November 2002 only a few weeks after the group was created....



The Crockpot : Wots your favorite cooking vessel??

From: Ares Abani Ü  (Original Message)                                          Sent: 26/11/2002 3:54 p.m.

Mine is the old fashion cast iron skillets

The small one is for when the hubby pisses me off... you know those major offenses when they say something stupid like your butt is dropping...lol... a good bang to the head can make him see things better.

The middle sized skillet is for those that need a lesson that echoes for years so they donít forget...usually render on such occasion when he gets off work at 12 mid night but shows up at the house at 4 in the morning and work is 20 minutes away....lol....when one does this and comes home DRUNK or STONED their is no right answer so it merits one bang to the head...lol... You would be amazed how well they can tell time after just one application ..lol

The BIG skillet means you are DONE!!! I ainít pissed off any more I am MAD....It comes with a warning label: One bang can cure all ailments and should only be used when life is threaten or they do the offenses that the middle skillet renders TWICE...lol All women should own a set of old fashion iron skillets the all purpose cooking vessels...lol Creates the perfect meal every night.

I'd forgotten this - I can remember laughing so hard I nearly burst a blood vessel. Just read it to Mr S. He had tears rolling down his cheeks.

STILL TILTING


« Reply #12 on: February 08, 2009, 06:24:14 am »

Tooting the hoot.

 

Sun down, stars out,

Warm in from without.

Cold night, inside warm and bright,

Tomorrow will be allright.

 

No Manyana, No piata,

Still I eat and still I farta.

Odd Jobs for a deener or a bob

And lusty ladies at the kitchen hob.

 

In and out the money goes,

Just like the tidal flows.

One thing I can say for sure,

When one’s within from without,

Life’s nay but a hoot

But rather, to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming...

WOW, What a Ride!"

I find the things I value the most in the kitchen have often come from the opp shop.

Like the heavy aluminum frying pan with metal handle that I can stick under the grill to finish a frittata or use on the BBQ.

The ancient pressure cooker with its little weights that can cook 500g of kidney beans in 45 mins.

The Aluminium hot plate that makes better piklets and toasted sandwiches than any non stick frying pan. It's not bad for steak either.

The gem irons, great for holding heat in the oven if you have to open the door alot as well as gems on a cold winter afternoon.

The old mincer, for those times when a food processor just doesn't do as good a job.

The mouli I wore out making baby food. I miss it everytime I make apple sauce.


As for favorite appliances - I like my all gas stove and living without the microwave would require a big adjustment. Life without the toaster, food processor and 20 year old hand held mixer would be annoying and I find I am missing the sandwich toaster (it did focchia) that broke last month more than I thought I would. I will replace it.

Many small appliances I have had haven't been replaced when they worn out/broke.

Like Brownie I am a kitchen gadget person and don't have a favourite one.  They all get used at various times and as I get a little older I find having a machine to do the job is a great help.

I got a Sunbeam Steamer a few weeks ago when I cashed in some FLYBUYS points. It's fantastic. There are the 3 tiers plus a rice cooker in it. I'm thrilled with it - it's easy to use and easy to clean  :yay

I love kidney beans - in fact I like all dried beans :as  They were great when we had a large family (all big eaters), they stretched out stews, mince, pasta sauces etc.
