Oooh! See, I cook....but only by gadget.
Gadget whores like me with a teeny tiny city kitchen and a love of cooking by various appliances.... (a ricer cooker, breadmaker (I admit I have a bit of a zojirushi obsession), a hefty 26 lb kitchenaid mixer plus various attachments, 16 lb electric pressure cooker, along with the standard food processor, coffee maker, espresso maker, juicer, etc, etc, etc) need these.
I rotate the toys (well the husband does) regularly depending on the menu and season, but once I ask him to plonk something big on the counter, it can stay plonked for days (xmas time for baking can take up all our counter space....and you won't have room to get anything else done when tomato season hits because of all the drying, saucing, and canning).
It'll be nice to make some room with just a quick shove!
Woot, my husband thanks you in advance.
