    As we are redesigning the kitchen and trying to cut the clutter I find

    myself faced with a decision to make.



    My kitchen is tiny and counter space is at a premium. The microwave

    is already in a cabinet all it's own, but the rotissier/toaster oven

    and small bake oven sit on the counter top. I also have a bread

    machine that makes an appearance there on a regular basis



    I currently own an extemely old kitchen aide center that takes an

    engineering degree to put all the parts on to make it do the various

    things it's designed for.



    I also have a food processor that one blade is ruined. A stand mixer,

    with dough hook that weighs a ton. My blender motor--basket just got

    broken, 2 meat grinders-one electric, one manual, and a meat slicer,

    as well as a small hand mixer I use when i don't feel like lifting the

    big one (most of the time).



    All of these things take up a ton of space to store and quite frankly

    the difficulty of hauling them out and lifting them from the lower

    cabinets they are in is quite oft putting.



    I'm thinking about chucking them all. Selling the things of real

    worth and giving the working, but not valuable to charity.



    This is where you come in. I am a scratch cook that also processes

    home grown foods for freezing, canning, and drying. I large batch

    cook, so I need something that can chop a lot of carrots, potaoes etc.

    easily.



    I want ONE all-purpose piece of equipmnt that will blend, mix, chop,

    grind, juice etc with a dough hook. What do you recommend? Will I

    need an engineering degree to run it.



    A compact size would be ideal too.



    Oh one more thing, I can't go super expensive. Jan who figures she is

    dreaming the impossible dream in OK.

    In our old kitchen, which was tiny, outdated, and lacked counter

    space & cupboard space, I had a microwave cart in the kitchen. I

    couldn't use it FOR the microwave, because- no outlet except behind

    the fridge, and behind the sink. Anyway, it has two doors on the

    front, and 1 shelf in the middle. All of my little appliances were

    stored in there- sandwich maker, blender, mixer, waffle maker (which

    I should get rid of- I've used it once in 3 years, but I digress..),

    etc. Then, on one side of the cart, it was open with 1 shelf there,

    too, so taller things were put there since it was taller than the

    cupboard area. Extra pitchers, cannisters, the pitcher for the

    blender, etc.
