My parents have a restaurant so some of these tools I am familiar with. The slicer is great! It's like an awesome mandolin (I need to get one! My husband won't let me as he thinks I am too clumsy and will hurt myself!). But then again once a year he has to drive an employee to the ER so maybe not best for home use. The juicer is also great but it's like 2 feet tall but juices everything so fast... My mom wants to kill me as I will throw a whole pineapple in there and drink its like 4$ just for my giant juice. Also the food processor - its finicky like all. You need to screw everything on right but it's huge.

Siegal, those slicers are no joke. I probably have an irrational fear of them but it's basically a large circular razor blade that spins at high RPM and whose motor is measured in horsepower.

I've had two accidents, neither of which required a trip to the ER but I'm a guy so I just duct taped the cuts.

It's actually a pretty sweet piece of equipment, you just cannot take your eye off of it for even a fraction of a second.

I am clueless about professional equipment. I looked at the thread and was thinking may the Geico gekco's cousin was a gourmet chef or something! I googled salamander + kitchen to find out what is was y'all were drooling over! I think if I had a choice though I would either a deep fryer or gas grill stove top. I would use them more often I think.

When we upgraded our kitchen I got pretty much everything I wanted. Granite countertops, island, dishwasher, side by side fridge, brushed stainless finishes, tall cabinets, corner sink.........the works. I have all the tools I could ever need or hope for. So I am very fortunate for that. BUT Hmmmmm a Salamander would be pretty cool.

I'll just take one fully equipped restaurant kitchen, please.

While a salamander would be fantastic, so would a pro stove, deep fryer and smoker.

Right! If you're going to fantasize, why do so in moderation? I want all of everything!

Agreed! Except for the deli slicer. They're evil and want to kill me.

Funny, I never got hurt on a deli slicer...the lettuce shredder and potato cutter and the deep fryer were my nemeses. And the band saw in shop class...
