"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, salad spinners, griddle pans, jam funnels, meat thermometers, filleting knives, egg poachers, cake stands (wish I had one!), 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, 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."

I wish I had a food processor. It's on the list. Garlic crushers are utterly useless, though.


Yuss. I was badly missing the knives I left in England - only then we got married, and one lovely friend gave me us a Shun eight-inch chef's knife, which is really all the knife I need. I've been using it for five months, and it's still a physical pleasure that I'm very aware of, just to handle it.
I have a Shun, too. It was a trilogy-sale present to myself.

It makes every other knife I've ever used feel like a baseball bat.

Also, Shun will sharpen them for free when you need it. (One does pay postage, obviously.)
I love my Shuns. I also have the cleaver, and look for any excuse to whip that guy out.
