Not necessarily. I have neither the money to buy these things nor the cupboard space to store them. Without the money or the space, time is the only thing I can make an allowance for, but I also choose recipes that aren't time-hungry.

My most used appliance is probably my KA immersion blender, I use it to make my kids smoothies every morning. I also use it a lot in the winter for soups. After that the next most used appliance would be my KA stand mixer and then maybe the toaster.

My most used appliance is definitely my Cuisinart toaster oven. I don't use a separate toaster so we often use it just for toast. Also, since there are only two of us, I usually use it for heating leftovers, toasting sandwiches, making garlic bread, etc. I LOOOOVE my toaster oven and I'm sad that is starting to look very beat-up.

Coffee grinder, twice a day. For small appliances anyway.
Then maybe the crock-pot lately. That will stop as soon as it warms up.

I use my coffee grinder 2 or 3 times a day, too! It's nice to see another "coffee achiever" at DC!

I was wondering if an electric kettle was classed as an appliance and i now see someone has mentioned it, I second it as the most used appliance in my ketchen by far!

Stove
Immersion Blender
Coffee Grinder
Coffee Maker
Pressure Cooker
Oven
Stove Top Grill Pan

I also use my warming drawer a lot. It's a very handy device and I normally make food and keep it warm in there so it's at the right temperature for serving.

1. Toaster oven
2. Microwave
3. Crockpot
4. Food Processor
5. KA Mixer
6. Mandoline

Being single it is more practical to cook things in the toaster oven then the regular oven. The microwave is mostly for reheating leftovers. The crockpot is my saving grace. It is so great to have a meal ready when I come home from work. The food processor is mostly used to make salsa or pesto. The mixer usually for cookies or breads. I just got the mandoline, so I need to experiment with it more.
