I like some of it, like toasters, blenders, mixers, deep fryers and waffle makers.

I love my kitchen gadgets, but as we only have a small kitchen we're limited on space.  Sad

We have a combination grill / microwave that we bought at Christmas last year and still have to try out the built in grill.

An Air Fryer, that's brilliant for heating up sossige rolls and things like that.

A hand mixer, for when we make bananananananana bread.

A blender, that will also grind coffee beans

A four slice toaster.

And an induction hob dual oven cooker.

Yes, I love cooking and baking and have a professional grade KitchenAid mixer, a power egg mixer, and a nonstick cast iron skillet.  Iím excited to really have a fully equipped kitchen of my own someday, though Iím off to a good start.

Yes, you are. Remember to buy quality items whenever possible and in the long run you will save money, I have an excellent set of knives that a neighbour who is a chef says they are best you can get for domestic use. The whole set was built up over time and probably cost me in excess of £180, compare that to buying a cheap set that costs £50, and having to replace them every other year. I've had my knives for over twenty years, and use a proper chef's steel to keep them razor sharp. The 'cheaper' knives over the same time period would have cost more than double what I paid.

I have a Le Creuset Dutch oven on my Christmas list.  These high quality French-made kettles can be used on the stovetop and in the oven.  I have several ideas for recipes with the Dutch oven:

Beef Stroganoff
Hungarian Goulash
Lasagna
Baked Ziti
Chateaubriand
French red wine beef and vegetable stew
Beef pot roast
Ratatouille

Favorite things to fix with the KitchenAid mixer:

Chocolate chip cookies
Snickerdoodles
Creme brulee custard
Sausage ball mix

@ Camden,

Ooh, snickerdoodles, haven't had them in years. Not since some of my American friends left to go home. Smiley

Can you post the recipe please.?  Kiss

Here's a link for a good snickerdoodle recipe.  This is a classic recipe that is most similar to what I would fix  Smiley

A more gormet version of these cookies exists too on Bon Appetit:

Thanks, hopefully it will be making these sooner than the three years it took before we made the bananananananaanananana bread.  Cheesy

We just bought a Le Creuset, been talking about it for 7 years. Finally went to the Le Creuset outlet store, picked up a 9 qt French Oven (oval) in Cassis color (purple) for $188.

We bought it specifically to make Christmas dinner, but I've already made Matzoh ball chicken soup with it. Also added the stainless steel knob to it.
