    Non-primal Kitchen Appliances

    Primal Fuel
    We just had the flooring replaced in our kitchen, which necessitated moving lots of stuff and then putting it all back again. Also, anything left on the counter during the installation got covered with dust.

    While reorganizing today, I suddenly realized our toaster hadn't seen any use in over 7 months, so why take up counter space with it? I cleaned it off and went to put it away in a seldom-used cupboard, only to discover the electric bread machine, which also hasn't been used in 7 months.

    Toaster? Bread machine? Anyone know of primal uses for these? Otherwise, off to Goodwill with them!

    Funny! I'm primal but my boyfriend isn't, so the toaster stays. Although, when I do the grocery shopping, I always forget bread products. They never enter my mind anymore

    The only Primal thing I can think to do with them is to use them for spear-throwing practice. If the bread maker is heavy enough, you might be able to use it for heavy lifting? If you have little kids they can follow law #10 to use their minds by taking them apart to see what makes them work. That's all I got. I can list these off because my husband and I were just talking about what to do with our waffle-iron.

    Too bad you can't cook bacon in a toaster.
    That would be very handy ;-)

    Sell them on craigslist and use the cash to buy meat.

    very true, but I can use my toaster oven for a small batch, even use a drip tray to save the fat.

    Some great suggestions! We decided to donate the toaster, as it's fairly old and doesn't work perfectly. My daughter's Italian husband was ecstatic to receive the bread machine. His mother is coming over to stay with them for the June, July, and August, so he has planned for her to make bread for him every day this summer. Not sure how'll she'll take to that idea! LOL!

    I've been tempted to throw my toaster all the way out. Mine doesn't have a bottom hatch and sitting down in my cupboard I think it might attract mice.
