Kitchen machines and gadgets

Recommended Posts

The coffee thread got me thinking, how many do we have. I have quite a few, do they get used, rarely. The toaster, egg cooker get used every day. The chopper upper hardly, the mandolin no, might take my fingers off. Rice cooker used to get used daily but not used now. The choppy things well I look at the machine and think can I be bothered and then say to myself no. Knife, you are my hero and you are so easy to clean.

 

Marketers do not like me

Breville coffee machine - every day

Breville toaster - every day

Breville food processor - every second day

Breville cafe toaster - every few days

Breville kettle - not much now, coffee machine dispenses hot water too.

 

We should have purchased Breville shares!

 

Other stuff

 

coffee grinder - every few days, I grind beans and store grounds in freezer for a few days.

Smoothy maker - every second day for ohs breakfasts

slow cooker - once a week or so

stick blender - when needed

cake mixer - don't use much, food processor with dough blade does the job better

pizza oven - why did I buy that?

Kettle - daily

Nespresso machine - daily

Toaster - daily

Iron - too bl**dy often :arghh:

 

Kettle and toaster are UK imports that still have Aussie adapters on them as are the toastie machine, stick blender, electric whisk, slow cooker etc. which don't come out of the cupboard very often - yeah, the only thing that didn't make the container really was the kitchen sink!

Cheers for that. I hadn't come across them. Had been looking at this one and a couple of German ones.

I can't live without my Thermomix. Use it several times a day. We have a teeny-tiny kitchen and just don't have room for much else so this makes a HUGE difference.

 

 

Went to to a demo for one of these, looked good. Boy are they expensive though, my last car was worth less!

 

do you really think they are good value, what do they do best. How long have you had it?

OH hassled me going on 2 years for a Thermomix. My arguments against getting one were always 1) the cost of the thing 2) I figured it'd go the way of the other gadgets she'd bought in the past - used the days it's purchased, maybe on the odd occasion here and there during the next couple of weeks, then stashed in the cupboard for months on end until it was given to a mate (who probably though they REALLY needed one, just like my OH had at the time she bought it).

 

I gave in a couple of months back and she finally got her Thermo......

 

Since then pretty much everything we've eaten has come out of the thing, quickly, and tasting good!

 

The only time the oven gets used these days is to crisp up the roast and cook the Yorkshire puds and roast spuds (shame it can't do those things).

 

Oh, one of my OH's selling points for us getting one was that it washes itself up. And it pretty much does!

 

Yeah, they are expensive and going back 2 months my mindset was that it would be a waste of cash. So far, it seems that it wasn't. Will let you know if that changes!!
