Shamelessly snagged from cakmpls as posted:

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. (Raye's addenum: things in plain text with no change are things I simply don't have and never did.)

"I wonder how many pasta machines, breadmakers, juicers, blenders, deep fat fryers, egg boilers, melon ballers, sandwich makers, pastry brushes, cheese boards, cheese knives, 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."

What of Dutch ovens, immersion blenders, pizza cookers, comals, stand mixers, handheld mixers...?

clearly this was designed by a yankee. there's no turkey deep fryer or quesadilla maker.

Do I get extra points for using my deep fryer so much that it died and I had to get a new one? :)

Redneck. Turkey deep fryers go OUTside, not in the kitchen.

There's a tortilla press, don't use it.

No. We use ours up in pairs. :-p

I don't see plain, non-electric wok.

Pretty sure that belongs in basic cookware that I use weekly, guessing it would not be on this list.
