I forgot I have one of those! Sis got me one as a gag. I use foil.

Got a nice slow cooker for a gift two years ago but have never used it and a dehydrator DH won't let me get rid of.

One of those coffee makers that you pour the hot water in then push down, I just keep it for camping or if the power goes out I can boil water on the wood stove, I must have coffee.

Maybe I'm cheap or something, I dunno. I will only buy something if I absolutely know I will use it. Usually this means that I really could have used it at least 10 times recently and am now willing to spend the money... Some things I'm getting ready to purchase are a pasta machine, a scale, larger food processor... I dunno, we'll see what I actually end up getting.

Some things that I don't know what I would do without are my Wusthof Santuko, my silpats, microplane, stick blender, and some little things like my silicone spatulas and basting brushes...

I swear, we should set up a "trading post" in here where people can trade the things they never use for the gadget collecting dust in somebody else's kitchen!

A trading post is in the works - just need to fine tune it.

An assortment of gadgets over the years. They don't take up much space so.....
Pasta pot-the kind with a perforated insert that you can lift out to drain the pasta. It seemed to me that you could cook only a small amount of pasta without having a boil-over. I have a number of appliances that I only use 2 or 3 times a year. I think if I had the space to leave them on the counter or store them where I could easily get to them, I would use them more often.

Having gadgets, appliances, etc. ready to hand would make a big difference to me as well.

I think the deep fryer thing was the last item I got rid of because I never used it.
