My new cooking tool.

Long periods of time on my feet in the kitchen has taken it's toll. If it hasn't happened to you yet, it will. I got a new cooking tool to solve that.
I ordered a drafting chair on wheels with a footrest, and can be raised or lowered depending on the task. It can be shoved out of the way on it's wheels, and makes the kitchen side of the breakfast bar a comfortable work station. It came with a back for it, but I like it better as a stool. The color is even good in my new dream kitchen.

Nice, Kayelle! Since I developed neuropathy in my feet a few years ago, I've depended on seating in the kitchen, too. Mine is a bar stool with a back but no wheels. If I sit on something with wheels, I'm liable to end up on the floor!

Just like GotGarlic, I use a heavy bar stool without wheels but includes a back. My legs are good for about 15 minutes. Beyond that... I have to find a chair.

I have a bar stool that I keep in a corner with a plant on it. The kids can't eat the leaves and when I use it the plant goes in the bathroom with the door shut. It's a dieffenbachia and I think the leaves are unhealthy.

I like to use it when making Scandinavian cookies like krumkake which are made stove top and made one at a time.

Great idea, Kayelle! I have back issues and do most of my prep at the kitchen table which is not the best place for me to do that. The height is weird for slicing/dicing -it is okay for mandoline use though.

I'll have to put that on the wish list. Too bad my birthday passed... I did get a very nice meat slicer and some Chuck Taylor Converse High tops, so I made out good.

I can picture wheelies in my mind.

The mind is a terrible thing to waste.

Shame I missed that boat.

The only thing I got from a skate board was skinned knees.
