Bold the ones you have and use at least once a year, italicize the ones you have and don't use, strike through the ones you have had but got rid of.
I wonder how many pasta machines, breadmakers, juicers, blenders, deep fat fryers, egg boilers, melon ballers, sandwich makers, pastry brushes, cheese knives, electric woks, miniature salad spinners, griddle pans, jam funnels, meat thermometers, filleting knives, egg poachers, cake stands, garlic presses, margarita glasses, tea strainers, bamboo steamers, pizza stones, coffee grinders, milk frothers, piping bags, banana stands, fluted pastry wheels, tagine dishes, conical strainers, rice cookers, steam cookers, pressure cookers, slow cookers, spaetzle makers, cookie presses, gravy strainers, double boilers (bains marie), sukiyaki stoves, food processors, ice cream makers, takoyaki makers, and fondue sets languish dustily at the back of the nation's cupboards.
The one I really miss is the cookie press: MyGuy would imprint his pecan shortbread cookies and we were all buzzed in a sugar/butter rush for a day.
Even though my mother was a gadget addict, and actually used them, I guess we’re not so interested. (Whenever they visited they’d bring a gadget, and the day after they left we’d hand it over to Easter Seals’ Thrift Shop.) Last year we decided that we’d been cooking together for 33 years and maybe we should buy a <em>set</em> of pots and pans. Non-stick is kinda nice. IOW, I’m just getting used to the fanciest gadget of the 1960s.
Also the trackpad on my Mac just went paws-up, so may be awhile replying.
