via kelliem  and silme : Kitchen Cupboard Meme: 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 had but got rid of.

"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.

the room’s suddenly spinning she walks up and asks how you are

The garlic press is faster, for me, than the knife, but today I did knife-and-salt because I was making vinaigrette, and it was going to be the perfect amount of salt for the dressing.

Over here, we call a cake tester a toothpick. Given that we never use them on our teeth, we probably ought to call them cake testers. The little dispenser sits on the stove back, in any case.

Re: the room’s suddenly spinning she walks up and asks how you are

Knife and... salt, instead of a garlic press? Here I just use a knife -- what am I missing?

Re: the room’s suddenly spinning she walks up and asks how you are

It helps hold the garlic in place and make a paste.

Re: the room’s suddenly spinning she walks up and asks how you are

I've had great luck with flat shiskabob skewers as cake testers

Re: the room’s suddenly spinning she walks up and asks how you are

I use bamboo skewers for both that and you know, skewers.
