Kitchen equipment meme

Seen from  aliettedb and others.

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.

I wonder how many pasta machines, breadmakers, juicers, blenders, deep fat fryers, egg boilers, melon ballers, sandwich makers, pastry brushes, cheese knives, electric woks, miniature salad spinners, griddle pans, jam funnels, meat thermometers, filleting knives, egg poachers, cake stands, garlic presses,margarita 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, food processors, ice cream makers, takoyaki makers, and fondue sets languish dustily at the back of the nation’s cupboards.

The above list seems incomplete to me. What about waffle irons, electric grills, rolling pins, and all the various molds and knives? What's your favorite equipment not included on the meme list? Mine is definitely my waffle iron. Fresh waffles are in a whole different class from frozen. Plus, I always smile at my Mickey Mouse-shaped waffles.

I tend to think of the hand blender (which is not on the list) and the regular blender as being two very different machines. The hand blender gets used more often.

Toaster, toaster oven and microwave aren't on the list. Also, why no cast iron fry pan or Dutch Oven? I want a dutch oven and I love my cast iron fry pans - I've even started using the big one in the oven for a few things.

I don't own a hand blender, but I do own a toaster oven and microwave. Of the pots and pans you mention, the closest that I have are my Le Creuset frying pan (cast iron, but coated and with an enamel outer coating) and my Le Creuset pots (cast iron, but covered with enamel both inside and outside). I don't have a separate toaster, as the toaster oven covers those needs.

I don't have a banana stand either. I put my bananas in a small bowl.
