My kitchen's full of junk, but I can't live without my wusthof trident knives, le creuset 26cm cast iron round casserole and griddle plate, my bamix, microplane graters and a cheapie wooden chopping board (it's a huge slab) that my SO got me.

I wish i had a kitchenAid mixer and a magimix food processor! :drool::drool: oh, and those gorgeous scanpan copper pots!

For now, all I can think of is the Kitchenaid stand mixer, kitchen aid 3 cup mini chopper, Cuisinart 11 cup food processor, electric mincer, griddle, steamer, waffle iron, good knifes, and some pastry tools.

I also have a cheapie toaster oven, but I want a table top oven -

People think I'm crazy, but my favorite thing in the kitchen (equipment/appliance), is the GARBAGE DISPOSAL! My absolute must have!!!


Just one more...

I've got a KitchenAid mixer. I bought a Dualit 2-slice toaster a few months ago and I really like it. If you call around to the Williams-Sonoma outlets, you may find they have one and will ship it out to you. That's what I did and it $99 as opposed to maybe $250.

Well, I'm a foodie and married for awhile. Also, as a side business, I make cakes (though I'm just starting out and it's mostly for fun).

First, I have Analon pans and an All clad one, several pots of ALL sizes, I have a KitchenAid Artisan mixer in Grey, a Electrolux DLX 2000 mixer (a MUST for whole grain baking - ever so much better than the KA for stuff like that), an 11 cup Cuisinart food process, an old crockpot, an old electric griddle, a waffle/pizelle, sandwich maker, a fondue set (meat,chocolate and cheese parts), Global knives (3), TONS of baking dishes - ceramic,glass and tin, a salad spinner, a mezzaluna knife, a blender, an ice cream maker, an ice tea maker, a stick blender, digital food scale, food chopper (manual) and a handheld KA mixer...Other than that a drawer of spoons and spatulas and another full of baking tools... As I said, a foodie. And this is the stuff I USE!!! I do weed through it quite regularly, but when you cook every day and bake and make everything from scratch, having the right tools makes the work SO much easier.

ETA: of course, I also have a microwave, a Cuisinart Toaster oven, a cuisinart coffee maker and a cuisinart coffee grinder.

My "batterie de cuisine", amassed over 2 decades of cooking. When I started out over 20yrs ago, I didn't even know how to make a tuna fish sandwich. I learned from Joy of Cooking and a variety of French cookbooks.
  • Sabatier Lion knife block set, a few Wusthof chef's knives, chinese cleaver
  • KitchenAid 5-ply SS full cookware set, a chinese wok, clay pot for fish stew
  • KitchenAid food processors (11-cup/5-cup)
  • Mauviel copper stockpot
  • set of 3 Emil Henry burgundian oval bakers :love:
  • SS mixing bowls
  • KitchenAid 5qt Standmixer (yellow) with pasta attachment/discs
  • Cuisinart IceCream maker
  • Solis Coffee Grinder, Krups ProAroma Coffeemaker
  • Zojirushi Hot Pot, Expresso maker
  • set of Wusthof pastry knives, rolling pins, Matfer pastry cutters, cookie cutters
  • loaf pans, quiche pans, brioche tins, tart pans, cake pans of varying sizes
  • roasting pans, roasting trays, cookie sheets, pizza trays, silicon sheets
  • Bread machine, microwave, toaster, crockpot, blender, bar tools, ricer, pepper grinder etc
The real workhorses are the towels, chopping boards, whisks, wooden spoons, sieves, spatulas, ladles and tongs.

I enjoy cooking from scratch -- I use everything consistently, except for the bread machine (prefer mixer/hand), KA grilling pan (we use outdoor grill) and the pastry bakeware/tools (holidays)
