Alchemical Thoughts

As found at the Dirty Librarian:

Bold the ones you have and use at least once a year, italicize the ones you have and don’t use, strike through the ones you have had but got rid of.

“I wonder how many pasta machines, breadmakers, juicers, blenders, deep fat fryers, egg boilers, melon ballers, sandwich makers, pastry brushes, cheese boards, cheeseknives, electric woks, miniature salad spinners, griddle pans, jam funnels, meat thermometers, filleting knives, egg poachers, cake stands, garlic crushers, martini glasses, tea strainers, bamboo steamers, pizza stones, coffee grinders, milk frothers, piping bags, banana stands, fluted pastry wheels, tagine dishes, conical strainers, rice cookers, steam cookers, pressure cookers, slow cookers, spaetzle makers, cookie presses, gravy strainers, double boilers (bains marie), sukiyaki stoves, ice cream makers, fondue sets, healthy-grills, home smokers, tempura sets, tortilla presses, electric whisks, cherry stoners, sugar thermometers, food processors, bacon presses, bacon slicers, mouli mills, cake testers, pestle-and-mortars, and sets of kebab skewers languish dustily at the back of the nation’s cupboards.”

A small commentary:

  • We  use our blender all the time, mostly for mixing cocktails, but also for a few other things.
  • Martini glasses. Yes, absolutely we do make martinis at home. In a  pinch, they work well for serving margaritas. However, do have margarita glasses too.
  • The slow cooker. We love our crock pot. We make an awesome chili with it. In fact, we wish we could use it more.
  • Pestle and mortar. Useful for crushing garlic and making a few other things.

I will add that there are a few things on this list that I have no idea what they are.
