We do have a coffee maker, although not as flash as that.
I do like my gadgets and use all of them, have juicer which I use most mornings, slow cooker, steamer - use most days, blender - I make a lot of soups so it gets used and a food processor which I use mainly for pastry but do use it for other things.
I do a lot of baking so dp suggested a kitchen aid while we were out today but I was a tad bewlidered by the range.
I do make homemade bread but would like to do so more often, especially as I would like to be able to mae gluten free recipes. But then would I just end up eating loads of bread and butter and put on weight.
Gosh. Gotta be a bread maker then? You could put some seeds in the bread then it is healthy and you can eat as much as you like
My DH and inlaws are very gadgety. Last xmas they bought him a waffle maker. He is too fat already. And it's crap. And it never gets used. I am going to throw it away in a few years and hopefully he won't notice... I yearn for uncluttered surfaces so I can actually do some, like, cooking
Erm.. can't remember exactly off the top of my head, but loads of weird stuff to make it retain water, and fat to make it spongy I think. I just remember it made me think yuk... no wonder I'm not a fan (never really liked bread but I do like freshly made stuff).
I'd love a kitchen aid. And an Aga. And an Aga Companion. And the bloody enormous kitchen with island unit with integrated sink and electric points that I would need to accomodate all the kitchen junk I would like.
DH did buy me a JML Kitchen "pro" though (lsat of the big spenders) which does surprisingly effective julienne carrots.
I dont get what is the difference between the kenwood chefs and kitchen aids et al. Have seen one on amazon for about £150. We went into Saftesbury today to look at one in a kitchen shop and they ranged from about £200 to £350.
I have an electric hand mixer, is that all I really need? What do people use them for?
