    The toaster can be used for parts. (My husband's an electrical engr. I get used to that first thought.) Other than that, depending on your toaster, you can possibly wrap bacon in aluminum foil (VERY securely so there's no chance of grease escaping) and cook bacon that way on the darker settings. Some toaster might start arcing though. I've used it to reheat a cheese free dry fritatta and (I'm trying to remember how) roast nuts.
    I've never used a bread machine so I have no idea (besides parts) for that.
    Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"

        Sell the breadmachine on e-bay, someone might be willing to give you cash for it. Cash you could use to buy a freezer chest... or meat to fill your freezer chest.

          Trade in the bread machine for a Foreman grill!

          Also, do NOT try to cook eggs in the waffle iron. Trust me on this one.

            One more appliance I'm questioning is our juicer, but we're keeping it as I hope someday to be in maintenance mode so I can have a glass of fresh carrot juice once in a while. I truly love that stuff and fight the cravings for it. I suppose there are worse things to crave, but carrot juice is my weakness.

              I just put our toaster away in the drawer. I can't bring myself to make toast for the kids anymore, I feel like I'm poisoning them. I make primal pancakes instead, a small step in a better direction. (I'll work on getting them interested in lamb chops....)

              I was thinking about one of those rotisserie things for the barbeque that you can stick a whole animal on, but I think it would freak the family out.

              Thinking of planting some banana trees so I can have the leaves to do a hungi. Not sure a hole in the ground counts as a kitchen appliance though.

                I have a beautiful, expensive fuzzy-logic rice maker that I used constantly pre-paleo. I don't miss the rice, but I do love that machine! Can't bring myself to part with it yet, even though I haven't used it yet this year. Every now and then I open the cupboard and gaze at it longingly. Beautiful machine. It never let me down. I feel unfaithful...

                  I'm definitely going to try making my homemade sausage patties in the waffle maker!

                  I gave away my break maker, and have a juicer and rice maker that I haven't rid myself of. I suppose I could steam veg in the rice maker...

                  I plan on making batches of primal waffles and freeze them, as well as coconut flour banana bread. Both of those will get toasted in the morning for those early 5:30am breakfasts for groklings on the way to day care. (Or at least that's the plan.)

                    Keep the juicer and rice cooker. Make green juices (kale, cucumber, spinach) etc... in the juicer and try steamed scrambled eggs in the rice cooker.

                      Any real use for a toaster oven? I should just put it in the trash, along with a broken blender I haven't tossed.

                        Make bacon, sausage with the broiler pan in the toaster oven, melt cheese over an open face frittata, reheat a clafouti
                        Keep the toaster oven. It's come in handy for me.

                              I traded out my juicer for a meat grinder and sausage attachment for my kitchenaide. I need to get busy, LOL.

                                Unless it's a beautiful 40s GE stainless toaster with Bakelite handles (small sob that I left that behind), go ahead and toss it or donate it. If it is, put it on display like any other antique.
