How many appliances do you have on your counter?

I keep the most used ones out on the counter: Food processor, KitchenAid stand mixer, 2 Coffee makers, coffee grinder, Blender, Electric food grinder and electric can opener.
We have 2 coffee makers because hubby and I don't drink the same coffee. He has his Chock full o nuts preground and I like my whole bean Gevalia.

I only have the water cooler on the bench top in terms of appliances. The phone, kitchen towel holder and a tray with the can opener and gas lighter etc in it are also there but that's it. Between my two benches, I probably only have about three feet or less of space so I can't afford to leave things out.

Coffee maker, toaster oven, microwave, blender, that's about all that fits. I have small counters or I'd certainly have more.

Oh I didn't think of the microwave but then it isn't on the bench either. Had to buy another cupboard for it to sit on!

My coffeemaker and blender sit on the counter all the time.
My electric kettle is on the counter 98% of the time; it's used so often that I don't always tuck it away in the cupboard.

I have my new food processor, KA stand mixer and a toaster on the counters. The microwave is on a separate trolley table and the coffee maker and coffee grinder are on another separate trolley. Other appliances like breadmakers, rice cooker, slow cookers, deep fryer, toaster oven, roaster, blender etc. are on open shelves all around the kitchen. I like being able to see and reach them instantly.

Microwave is mounted above the oven, so that don't count right? I have a toaster and my FoodSaver, everything else is stored neatly away.

The counters have a toaster, coffee maker, KA stand mixer, KA blender and KA food processor on them. Less used appliances are not out, but where I can get them easily.

Mixer and FP. The little Handy-vac and the stick blender are in a crock in the corner, but everything else is put away.

I seldom use the mixer and FP, but they are too heavy to put away and get out.
