What do you want for your kitchen?

I would like to get a convection oven, mandoline, dutch oven, dehydrator, and indoor grill. I would like lower counters and lower island, I'm short 5' 1 "and the counters are really too high for me, they are at 36 inches, it should be around 30 inches for my height. I read that counters or work area should be waist high. Tall people lived in the house before we bought it and they had it built to their specs. I also would like more storage space for all my kitchen gadgets and small appliances.

I want...a kitchen. Our current kitchen is one step above a campfire.

Mavericks idea sounds good, but I will need 3 separte stoves, 3 sinks and 3 dishwashers, as well as everything else in 3's. That would be ideal kosher kitchen. I love the idea of indoor grill.

A bigger kitchen to start with!! Then a new microwave that doesn't go klunk, klunk as it rotates, a dishwasher, a new all in one stove/oven/grill with wok burner, a light and a rangehood, a pigeon pair fridge/freezer (not an all in one), a Kenwood Chef (like a Kitchen Aid), a bread machine, more storage space, a versatile juicer, a mandoline, a kitchen hand, a walk-in pantry, a chef, a waitress/waiter, a vacuum sealer and then of course a much bigger house to put it all into!!!!
