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.
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.
