Your favorite appliance?
I am really a big fan of my kitchenaid. We have a history. I bought her (yes, I did say HER) at an estate sale for 45$. She was in pretty bad shape. But I had always dreamed of having a kitchenaid, and here was one, soon to be homeless. As I sifted through the kitchen of an dead old lady I never knew (that's always a bit creepy you know) my eyes kept darting back to her, she was calling me. So I picked her up (no easy task) and took her home. Once home, Paul took one look at her and questioned whether or not to ever send me out garage saling on my own again. She really was in a sorry state. I took a toothbrush to her. And some bleach. I scraped and scrubbed. She looked like new.
I don't remember what our first meal together was, but it was a disaster. I soon found out that she only had one speed: really fast. I had to take her to the appliance shop to have her fixed, setting me back 90$, more than I had originally paid for her. I didn't mind, by this time we had bonded, like only an appliance and her girl could.
For me it's one of those appliances I couldn't imagine my kitchen without. I use her at least three or four times a week.
So, what's your favorite kitchen appliance?
