    Do You Use Your Phone/Tablet/Laptop In The Kitchen?

    I use my phone in the kitchen quite a bit, either to cook from a recipe that I've found or to use as a reference to look up a last-minute substitution or measurement conversion. One of my relatives has gone as far as to install a little iPad holder that swings out from the wall and can be...

    Do You Use A Stool/Chair In The Kitchen?

    Wasn't sure where to put this, but I've taken to grabbing a nearby stool while in the kitchen. Waiting 10 minutes for the stand mixer to knead bread, or for eggs to boil...more and more often, I just cop a squat in the kitchen instead of going into the other room. What about you?

    What's The Most Useless Thing In Your Kitchen?

    Piggybacking off the "scariest" topic, what's the most useless thing in your kitchen? You can define "useless" however you like; maybe it doesn't perform as it should, or maybe it's something you have and just never use. For me, it's the plastic egg holder that came with my fridge - a...

    Come Into The Kitchen Cook Book

    As noted earlier, I got Mary & Vincent Price's Come Into The Kitchen Cook Book for Christmas. I have to say, although I have broken the seal, so to speak, and made two things from it, I'm really enjoying it just as a book to read. It's arranged in time-period fashion, from colonial American up...

    What is your most hated kitchen cleaning job?

    We all have cleaning jobs we dislike - what is your most disliked cleaning job in the kitchen? Mine is emptying the kitchen bin (or bins) and keeping them clean. Why hasn't someone invented a disposable eco friendly pop-up kitchen bin? Next is cleaning the oven - but I get a company in to do that.

    Advice on kitchen storage.

    Ok peeps, I need some advice on kitchen storage, especially cooking pots and pans. We bought a new kitchen a year or so ago but I'm still struggling to find sensible storage space for all the most used items. I'm obviously going to rationalise things and store little used bits and pieces...

    What were your first-ever kitchen appliances?

    Do any or you remember what your first-ever kitchen appliance was? The day that you moved from the nest. Was it a toaster, coffee maker or hand-held mixer, maybe a blender? Was it when you left the nest, before or after you got married? Usually, when you move out from your parents' place, the...

    Friends in the Kitchen

    Meet Ruby - She was with me as I learned how to cook. See was my faithful kitchen assistant. Sadly, I had to put her down a year ago but we had a great life together. Do you let your pets in the kitchen?

    Ridiculously Expensive Kitchen Appliances!!!!

    Name an appliance for your kitchen that is so ridiculously over priced that you wouldn't even THINK about getting it. Yet the makers of these overly-priced things are so crazy to want this kind of money for them! Now I don't mind modern conveniences in the kitchen, but come on! There IS a limit...

    One gadget!

    A silly fun question. You're moving to a new kitchen in five minutes and can only take one gadget along with you. What do you grab and why? Lets not include knives as they aren't really a gadget and anyway you have to have at least one in any kitchen.

    How do you Store Your kitchen Stuff?

    How do you use the space that you have to store your kitchen stuff? I took one of the closets to do it with. Mainly to stop the clutter that was beginning to pile up in the kitchen. :wink:

    Old, retro, or simply weird kitchen gadgets

    I am fascinated by unusual, especially well-engineered kitchen gadgets. Some are useful, some are works of art, really special ones are both. Here are a couple of my own favourites, plus a couple I snapped in a charity shop this morning. Do you have any that fall into this category?

    Recommended kitchen tools

    Hey everyone! I've recently gotten my own apartment but I am dangerously low on quality kitchen gear. At the moment I only have one charred skillet from the 50's and a few knives of varying degrees of usefulness. Does anyone have any recommendations for pans or cutlery? Much appreciated!

    Do you take any of your own kitchen gear when vacationing?

    Once a year, we spend a week in a timeshare - basically a one-bedroom apartment. While the kitchen is adequately stocked, I do take my Wusthof chef knife and Zwilling Pro paring knife with me. I've even been know to take my scone pans along with my own pre-made kits for the batches of scones I...
