Coffee maker, cappuccino maker, toaster oven and FoodSaver. I also have open shelves for the breadmaker, blender and crockpot; the two FPs (one large, one 1-cup size) are in cabinets near my main prep counter.

Toaster oven, microwave and coffee maker only. But somehow the counters fill up with other stuff!

This happens to me, too! My family seems to see empty counter space as a place to stack up things they are too lazy to put away! But I have a large ss work table in the middle of the kitchen that stays clear at all times. When I re-did my kitchen, I made it painfully clear to everyone in the house how unhappy I would be if they didn't respect this. I hate coming into the kitchen to cook and not have a clear counter ready for me to start. So far, so good.

toaster, coffee pot and micro.the micro sits in a space to small for anything else. don't like all the stuff, it makes an already tiny space even less.

Coffee Maker.

I have a huge amount of counter space, but I can't stand clutter.
In order to combat my adoration of small appliances, I emptied out my coat closet (shared a wall with my pantry), added a couple of side-to-side ikea bookshelves, and made an all-appliance area, complete with room for my most-used cookbooks on a shelf above the hanging bar. On either side of the bookshelves is just enough room - one side holds all the cookie sheets, the other holds the foodsaver & it's bags.
Even though the KA mixer is heavy, I still lug it out nearly every day for baking purposes, and then just put it away. That way, I always have a good workspace, ready when I am.

We only keep the Coffee maker on the counter, it's a fully automatic & too heavy/large to put in the cabinet. Everything else stows away, including the toaster.

coffee maker, small flat screen TV, sometimes my laptop (rarely), a krups toaster, and a KA stand mixer. The Cuisinart is below in a cabinet and easy to pull out when in use. 4

Coffee maker, small food processor, stand mixer, toaster oven, cd/radio (does that count as an appliance? ).

Just my KA stand mixer. The microwave is mounted above the stove and it just died last week. I'm trying to prolong dragging the regular microwave out of storage since we don't have room for it on the counter. When we want coffee or need the toaster we bring the appliances out of the laundry room where they're stored.
