I’ve been congratulating myself for about a year now for giving up the motorized coffee grinder for a manual (it actually does a better job). And I’d like to give up more. Yet one of my large cabinets mocks me as a hypocrite. In my city house kitchen, I have:
It’s been a long time since I used the espresso machine (Happy polyamory with my Aeropress and French Press), Bar blender, Bamix, FP and Kitchenaid. If they disappeared, I’d shrug. I feel no need for a drip coffeemaker, and I suppose I could do without the boil kettle and the hand mixer (a good manual will do). But I think I’d cross a line to give up the Vitamix and the toaster–I really don’t see viable manual versions of those.
I’m curious about other Onions’ cabinet confessions with electrics. What do you have and does anyone else feel the lure to ditch some/all of them? If you could keep only 3 which would you hold onto?
