Hello. My name is Emma and I am a kitchen appliance addict!
My house is not tidy enough, to be mistaken with the ideal home show. It IS however, easy to be mistaken for the gadget show. Or at least, you might think the woman who lived here, threw a tantrum in a large appliance store, to which her husband bowed down to, and bought the lot. You would be still be wrong.
There are rather a few appliances in my kitchen, that I have acquired over the last 10 years. Don’t get me wrong, I still have your usual kitchen appliances… standard toaster, standard kettle, microwave, freezer…
No wait… actually I don’t! I have an instant hot water dispenser, instead of a kettle. My toaster also boils/fries eggs. Our freezer is so small, that we no longer buy frozen food, because nothing fits. The fridge makes some quite frankly terrifying noises too! And my microwave? Ah well that blew up last month and the white ball of lightening spinning around inside it, blew a hole through the side and nearly killed me… so we actually don’t have one of those!
I’m like an appliance-whore, except I don’t have the basics! (I don’t even have a decent set of cookware!) I have been thoroughly spoilt by modern technology, yet I haven’t grasped the fundamentals. Perhaps I should pawn it all and get a decent fridge freezer and some saucepans?
I do have…
A Vitamix (although sadly this is only on loan to me)
A slow cooker
A Soda Stream
A Steam Generator Iron
A food processor
A toasted sandwich maker
A washer dryer
An extra (travel) gas hob (you never know when you might need a spare).
…oh wait – that last one might not actually be an appliance. That one just stands in the doorway moaning at how much mess I have made when cooking!
