Friday Five: Household Appliances Edition

I'm enjoying a short lunch break from paper writing, so I thought I'd play along...

Just for perspective's sake, I went surfing to find the photo at left... Imagine it with crockery inside, and tins of flour, sugar and salt in the middle cabinet, then painted in a lovely shade of battleship grey or brindle, and you'll have the "dream kitchen" of my great-grandmother...

Sally from RevGals writes: As I write this I am waiting for my new dishwasher to be delivered, it along with my washing machine and vacuum cleaner are household appliances that I consider indispensable! Others not so much, we decided not to replace our tumble drier when the old one finally gave out last year, and I can honestly say I haven't really missed it. My hubby Tim and I often disagree about which household appliances are really necessary and which ones aren't, we also enjoy a few luxury items, my one of favorites is a juicer, and Tim's is our all singing all dancing filter coffee maker- it has a thermos jug so the coffee stays nice and hot without the aid if a heat element. So being in a domestic frame of mind I thought I'd ask...

1. What is the one appliance you simply couldn't be without? Hard one. I love my microwave and my gas range. But to be realistic, the range. I've yet to make microwave cookies that pass muster.

2. What if anything would you happily give up? Um. The toaster?

3. What is the most strangest household appliance you own? We had an electric donut maker (wedding present) for a while. I think it stopped working. It made cake donuts... not especially good ones.

4. What is the most luxurious household appliance you own? Probably the bread maker. I can make bread in the oven, but it's great to toss in a loaf and then go do something else.

5. Tell us about your dream kitchen- the sky is the limit here....
wow. Really, REALLLYYYYY???

OK, I'd like this one:




Or this one:



Or this one.... I LOVE this one!!!


Hey, it's my blog and I'll dream if I want to!

OK, break's over, back to my typing dungeon...

I'm liking that last one, especially the view of the water!

Great list! I am also in love with my Kitchenaide mixer.

Oooh, I love the Hoosier Cabinet. Want want want... I, one the other hand, must be content with all the kitchen one small car accident can buy. We bought our cabinets on a budget of $1,000, one third the insurance payout when I totalled our station wagon during a snowstorm last December. Hooray, IKEA! We were able to afford everything we needed except part of the countertop and the upper cupboard doors.
