Don’t think this is the place to post, might need help with the right thread. Already tried looking at cookware tags.
I’m moving to a new apartment with a bigger kitchen (open kitchen and double the current size at least) in a few years’ time (building in progress) and I’m not quite sure if having more gadgets would be a good idea.
Current place has a stovetop (only one working burner ) and my cookware are two ECI Dutch ovens, one SS saucier and one nonstick frying pan. Heavy ones. None of these - oven (hoping to get Breville Smart Oven), toaster, blender (looking at a Vitamix), air-fryer or even a KA mixer. My knife skills are still quite poor and I certainly take a long time to cook for 3-4 dishes. Everything is by hand, including ice-cream making with just the freezer. Tempted but more worried about having too many stuff at home. Thus most of my dishes are either stir-fries, pan frying, blanching, pickled vegetables (tsukemono), simmered dishes (nimono) and soups (be it Chinese boiled soups or miso soups or nabemono).
Grew up without these too. My mum would probably scream at me if she found out I bought more for the new place. The mister would just nag and forget.
