Toaster oven, which has just stopped working, I'll buy a new one immediately, can't live without it as I can't be bothered heating up an entire main oven to cook a few sausages.

Bread Maker and Rice Cooker are both constantly used as well.

I have these strange things now called an iron and an ironing board. Glad they are only with me in storage as I have no idea how they work

The Popcorn Maker gets lots of use, as does the sandwich maker ( anold style sealing the edges one). The Slow Cooker get used quite alot in the cooler months, but the hand held mixer and blender rarely see the light of day

Best recent purchase: A cappochino coffee machine ......but over use leads to

Quick hint: You don't use them in the kitchen.

Or it could be a novel way of cooking bacon

My sister does but her kitchen is bigger than mine. However, I don't intend to use them ANYWHERE! Why change the habits of a lifetime....!

aglassofwinehelps is an unknown quantity at this point

Bread Maker and Slow cooker are used regularly, home made Naan bread is delicious.

Tucked away is the rotisserie and juicer. Think a popcorn maker would be worth its weight, we buy a lot of microwave popcorn.

Breadmaker, hand mixer, hand blender, George Forman - all brilliant

Liquidiser/blender thing - rubbish

What ironing bacon! How does it taste? And don't all the family clothes smell a bit ... well ... porky?

Couldn't live without our breadmaker & is used almost daily! Steamer gets used most days. George foreman is used once every couple of weeks & the hand held electric mixer gets used about once a month but couldn't manage without either.

Sat in the back of the cupboard is a juicer. Really good but a performance to clean. Popcorn maker (hopeless & use to fire hot unpopped kernels around the kitchen) & frothy maker both got binned as I never used them.

You can cook more than bacon with an iron...

That Youtube clip with the iron is quite amusing.

I'm going to check out these Egg cookers.

Haven't used our George Forman or Sandwich Toaster in over a year.

Hand held blender and liquidiser blender thing gets used all the time to mix meals up for our toddler but if we didn't have him they would never get used either!

Espresso maker & blender used regularly

Sandwich maker - so so

Breadmaker - never - seemed like a good idea at the time but then I realised I didn't want to eat a loaf of bread in one sitting otherwise it would go stale

George Foreman and blender used a lot. Don't have any others. Wouldn't mind a bread machine but we'd all be the size of several houses because of the amount we'd eat so I won't get one. Honestly do not see the point of a rice cooker, they don't cook it any quicker than a pan so why bother?

One gadget I'd love is a Zip Hydro tap but they're serious money when we already have a kettle and an ice and water dispenser in the fridge.
