Yep! :oops:

On the other hand - how many kitchen toys have you bought that you've never used? One I just ran across last night was my Joyce Chen dumpling maker ... it looked like a winner when I bought it but I've discovered it's far easier to make them by hand than cut the dough and try to get it to fit into the dizmo to make the dumplings. Garlic press was another waste of money ...

I have yet to use my pierogi cutter...
but my feemster slicer is it, for me. (Mom's had one since I was a wee one, so I assume they've been around forever.)

My Favorite toys are the kitchenaid mixer, an emulsion mixer, my madoline, and my cuisinart 1/2 blender 1/2 chopper combo...I've given the large cuisinart away. This is a lot easier...now if I had the kitchen of my dreams, I'd have room for everything, but I cannot stand the stuff out on the counter, so it has to have a place to live., for me, smaller, better.
And I cook a lot, and do large parties...Just do it twice.

I think I love kitchen toys more than I love cooking! They just fascinate me!

I have got to stop somewhere! They are taking over! :roll:

I'm actually on the other side of the question. I'm looking at "What do I get rid of next?" I've purchased A LOT of gadgets over the years. Some I used, some I didn't use, most I haven't used in years. When I moved from OK to MI, I actually threw away about half of my gadgets, as I hadn't used them in years and they were taking up space.

I have an idea. Tell me what kind of gadget you have or want to get, and I'll tell you how to get around not having it. It's kind of amazing what you can do with some basic tools.

I have gotten better at realizing which gadgets I will use and which will sit in the drawer collecting dust BEFORE I buy them now. I love gadgets though and it is hard to resist some of them.

i lost the little beater arm for my breadmaker, so now i have one more gadget that just collects dust. i'll have to get around to getting the model # so i can buy a replacement, so at least it will be a functioning bredamaker collecting dust.
