How Many Small Kitchen Appliances Do You Own?

I don't think that this topic been brought up before (if it has, please indulge me).

How many small kitchen appliances do you own?

What I mean is Food Processors, Coffee Makers, Slot Toasters, Slow Cookers, Pressure Cookers, Blenders, Panini Presses ...
I'll stop now.

You left a pretty big gap in there between 7 and 10.

Casey, you could always do a write in but you're right, I probably could have added one more "vote"

I went with the "between 5 and 7". I don't have a lot of gadgets. Off the top of my head I'll list coffeemaker, toaster, hand mixer, blender, Nesco roaster, toaster oven, nuker.

Uh oh, I forgot my coffeemaker. Now I am in the small appliance limbo between 7 and 10. That's going to keep me awake tonight.

Two. Wait, make that too. As in "too many". Lessee:
Coffee maker
Coffee bean grinder
Espresso machine (which is in the basement...)
Toaster oven
Food processor
Bread machine
Two crock pots (4 qt, 6 qt)
Oster Kitchen Center (primarily for stand mixer and blender, although I've used the meat grinder too)
Cuisinart Griddler
Electric frypan (which I used for tonight's grilled cheese sandwiches_
Two warming trays, a single and a double (used frequently when we entertained - probably donating to a thrift store before the year is up...)
electric juicer (Himself's toy)
Small coffee grinder used for spices
Old hand mixer from Himself's college days (and it still works!)
TV (an integral part of my kitchen prep work time... )

Good Grief! I never realized how many I have until you asked, K-Girl. Thankfully, I use most of them on a fairly regular basis. So I guess it's all good.

Blender
Toaster
Hand mixer
Microwave
Knife sharpener
and a recently acquired popcorn popper that needs a new home!

When I moved into my first apartment I had a toaster and eventually a hand mixer, thanks to my mother and a couple books of green stamps.

I got along just fine.

I would have to go through the kitchen and count, but at least 15, possibly 20.

I'm surprised that anyone on a cooking forum would have less than 10, unless some items are forgotten.

Why have you discriminated against 8 and 9? They are perfectly good round numbers. I count 8 here in the kitchen. I picked 5-7 so that I wouldn't skew the results with an unwarranted exaggeration.

A more interesting poll might be how many appliances do you have that you use that you use every week?

Daily:
2 slot toaster
Microwave
Popcorn popper

1-2 times per week
Coffee grinder
immersion blender
KA stand mixer

1-3 times per Month
rice cooker

1-6 times per year
Food processor
Electric griddle

Once in a blue moon
blender
Waffle maker
Crock pot
Donvier ice-cream maker thingy

Never - but I might someday
Fondue chafer
Racqlette thing


Based on this - I probably should clean out some cupboards...

The ones I use daily are:
Toaster Oven
Microwave
Coffee Pot
so they all deserve kitchen space.
I hate kitchen counter clutter!

Other appliances are stored in the service porch:
Nesco Roaster (about my favorite)
Oster commercial blender (metal container, 40 yrs old)
Food Processor (rarely used)
Crockpot (for food service only)
Hand mixer
Stick blender (with very cool attachments)
Anova sous vide (new love)

OK...that makes only 10.

I forgot to add my vacuum sealer. That bumps me up into the "more than 7, less than 10" category, too.

But Tenspeed....some of us have small kitchens, not a lot of counter space, have gotten by quite nicely with what we have (so far...), and limited storage space. I'm kind of a pretty serving bowl, platter, and casserole dish kind of gal, so most of my cabinet space is dedicated to those. Sigh...I can never pass up a beautiful platter or casserole dish, if the price is right.

We have multiples of everything and all the spares are stored in the garage and some are given away during the Holidays, then replenished.

When I was a new, very young bride I was so proud of all my new wedding gift appliances displayed on my counters. Then I figured out I had to keep them all clean even when they weren't being used. Bummer. Matching appliance covers were in vogue then, so I resorted to using them for a time but they got dirty too.
Now all small appliances get stored where they don't get dirty.
I love my uncluttered very clean counters.

I just remembered I have an Electric Knife. It needs to go in the donation box.
Does anyone still have one that's used?
