      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.
