What's next on your wishlist?

i think i'm finally going to get a serious little mixer because i think everyone would cook more if we had one. it would make things so much easier. i know i'd make bread practically every day & work through every recipe (except ones w/mushrooms) my baking books cover-to-cover if i had one. i'm spoiled at work where i use a mixer that can handle ~50kg of dough. when we move to a bigger location soon we'll have a 160kg diosna mixer also. it's practially a bathtub for mixing dough in. anyway i was thinking of this bare-bones kitchenaid which would be plenty imo:



books on my list include all the rest of peter reinhart's bread books and.... not sure what else

I think I've got enough gear - what I would like is a nice butler's pantry to put the entertaining dinnerware/glassware stuff and a food pantry so I could become even more of a pack rat on non-perishables and not have to go down to the basement to fetch something.

Yes, this Kitchenaid Mixer is high up on our wishlist, too...
We also need a bigger, better fridge, vacuum sealer, a good dishwasher that actually washes off all the stickies and greasies, and a serious pizza oven would be nice, too...

Better organization in my kitchen and pantry. I have enough room, but have too much stuff!

A new kitchen! I wish for new cabinets (more drawers less, countertops, a backsplash, revising the current desk into counterspace with drawers, new appliances including a double oven, built-in cook top -- -- it really isn't funny - I really wish this! We have had people out to the house and everything is do-able except the double oven, the layout would have to be changed which doesn't seem like that big of a deal - buuuut, we have flooring issues and to change the floor would mean to change the whole first floor of the house! I may live with the cabinets (change the hardware), replace countertops, backspash, take down paper and paint and maybe get a built-in cook top with a built in single oven and replace sink. We are thinking about next year - we will see .... in the meantime, we are replacing the deck with trex, so that will keep me happy for now .

I don't think I'll get anything else for the kitchen.

I have all those things mentioned except for the pizza oven. But I DO have the Flavor Wave convection oven. And I DO also have this K'Aid Stand Mixer! Had it for almost twenty years, and it STILL works like new!!

The one thing on my current wish list is to have enough time to cook all the stuff I want to make. Working full time relegates most of my "serious" cooking to the weekends, and this time of year, even the weekends tend to be too busy.

The good news is that I get to retire in 7 months, and then I will have the time to make lots of good things...

I would love a new fridge. One with an ice maker and water on the outside.
