    D'oh! Appliances

    Primal Fuel
    I was giving my kitchen its weekly deep wipedown, muttering my weekly complaint about lack of counter space, when I noticed that I was cleaning my... TOASTER. Anybody have any primal ideas for this thing before I tuck it away?

    Less than a year before going primal, I bought a high-end bread machine and started making all my own bread (well, having my machine make it for me). Now it languishes in the pantry. I wish I'd spent my money on something else!

    indeed. I gave away my ricecooker shortly after going primal. I used that thing everyday making "healthy whole grains" as a vegetarian

    Yeah, I only use my toaster when I have bread-eating visitors now. However, it's a cute retro toaster that goes well in my 1920s kitchen, so I keep it out on the counter. The space it takes between the stove and the coffee-maker is too far back for me to use anyway.

    I got rid of my toaster and my microwave. The toaster oven is still in the cupboard. For the life of me I don't know why.

    Already-made leftover banana pancakes toast up nicely. I'm sure they're not the only thing. I just toast them on a skillet, though.
    Give me liberty. Exploration of other options will be vigorously discouraged.

    The ability to downsize was a definitely one of the many perks of going "primal." We were able to ditch our toaster, microwave, bread maker and Kitchenaid pasta maker attachment.

    I'm a little embarrassed that we had those last two to begin with.

    Oh, crap, I forgot all about the rice cooker...I LOVED that thing! I used to put my oatmeal in it the night before and set the timer, and tell it what time I wanted breakfast to be ready for me. If I was late for breakfast it would keep it perfectly warm for me until I was ready to eat. If I miss anything about pre-primal, it's that rice cooker. My life will be fulfilled when they invent an appliance that can have bacon and eggs cooked and ready to go at a preset time.

    Don't know how y'all can live without a microwave. I am absolutely convinced that Grok would have used one if they weren't so big and heavy.

    we sold our toaster-oven.
    But sometimes I wish we hadn't because it would be nice for small things like roasting garlic or beets without having to heat up the whole big oven.
    But then again, it took up a lot of counter space...

    But a slots-in-the-top-for-bread toaster? Craigslist for sure!

    What!! You guys are giving away the rice cooker?!

    Seriously. Gah.

    You can use that for all KINDS of things, not just rice. At the beginning of the year, I was cooking everything in my rice cooker--soups, stews, chicken, other meat, steamed veggies (if you have a steamer attachment for the top), eggs, etc etc.

    Then it died.

    Now I'm sad. And even sadder that you gave a perfectly good rice cooker away.
