Just the essentials or all the bells and whistles?

My therapist referred to me as a gadget person, and I guess that's right.  I try not to buy kitchen gadgets that are unlikely to be used, but nothing lights up my eyes like a new kitchen gadget.  I just bought a 6-quart slow cooker, and upon discovering that it's too small for my large batches of stuff, decided to get a 10-quart slow cooker as well!

I made a list of my kitchen gadgets for another forum:


You must have a huge kitchen with lots of storage!

I live in a handicapped accessible apartment, so the kitchen and living room is one contiguous space.  I use half for my living room, and in the other half I have 3-1/2 chrome plated wire shelving units.  I use those for my food, freeing up the cabinets for dishes and gadgets.  I use S-hooks on the shelves to hang my pots and pans, and additionally the middle shelves are spaced far enough apart to serve as additional counter space.  Since I rarely have visitors, I have utility tables that I use for even more counter space.  All told, I've got a lot of room for things.  Cooking has become my new hobby since I stopped being depressed all the time and living on frozen TV dinners.
