What Does Your Kitchen Say About You?

What Does Your Kitchen Say About You?

Interesting photo collages of kitchens in Amsterdam. If you live in the NYC area, the photographer is looking for kitchens to shoot.

How many people store stuff in the oven? My mom does. It's a PITA.

I store stuff in the oven...my full sheet pans, pizza pan, things that are too big for my itty bitty cupboards.

I have a very tiny apartment kitchen.

I added a couple of bookcases to store dishes and canned goods.

It reminds me of a 1960's Hippie style let it all hang out kitchen, flour power!

I don't store things in the oven!

Grandmother used to keep her frying pans in the oven. It was a time when pilot lights helped to keep the cast iron dry. Remember pilot lights?

I keep my deep fryer in the oven and my mesh grill pan in the broiler (which I never use). The only one that peeves me is the fryer, as it takes up a lot of room to move about when I want to use the oven. I'd like to set it on a burner, but it crowds the burner next to it.

My kitchen says, "At least it's clean where it counts" about me

I sometimes stick something in the oven for storage for a brief period but the oven is not a regular storage spot.

As to what my kitchen would say about me...

We store foil wrap, used parchment paper and a 3 litre Demeyere sauce pan & cover in the dish washer, protect some of our counter tops with silicon rubber baking mats and have a few 1 litre ceramic beer steins on the counters filled with spatulas, brushes, and wood implements.

The only thing in my oven is my frying pan. My cookie sheets are stored in a small place beside my fridge. On my countertop next to my sink is my mixer, can opener, large food processor. On the other side of my sink is my coffee maker and coffee canister. On the small counter next to the stove is my utensil holder with wooden spoons and spatulas and salt cellar. On the other side of the stove is the microwave. Everything else is in cabinets. On my little movable lower counter is my toaster oven. Things that I use daily are available in a second.

My wrap products are in a holder on the inside of a cabinet door. My paper towel holder is also on the inside of a cabinet door.

Because I am so short, dishes I use frequently, are on the first shelf. Bowls and other larger items are on the second shelf and requires a stool to reach them. Baking items are also on the second shelf. Measuring cups, etc. The top shelves are for storage. Some shelves are empty.

My kitchen says I am organized for the convenience of use. Things I use frequently are at my fingertips.

So Shrek isn't working out for you? I'd fire him as cleaning lady if I were you. Take away his apron with ruffles. And no hankie for the pocket either.

I only store my 1 piece of cast iron in my oven. DH made sure I had enough cabinet space when he designed my kitchen that I would pretty much need all of Crate and Barrel to fill it .. and you know what .. I did fill it up LOL
