I believe that our air fryer has bit the dust and is heading for the small appliance burial ground. It shall be replaced.

Most of the ones here in Houston are open to the public. If I need to go to the big one that isn't, I borrow the card from the church that sponsors our Scout troop, but that's rare.

I replaced my mixing bowl red and white-enameled metal bowl/plastic red lid set with stainless steel bowls clad in silicone on the bottom. Besides no more chipping, the new bowl’s bottom color matches the colored lids— no more trying out different lids to find the right one when I’m in a hurry.

The white enameled colander was also chipping and was replaced with a stainless steel one too. I loved the look of the enamel ones, but the chipping was unhygienic and it was time to let them go.

No, it would never cross my mind to toss something in the kitchen just because it was in the new year.

If I had my druthers, I would toss MOST of the things that my wife has brought into the kitchen. These include but are NOT limited to:

1) The foldable bowls that generally leak.
2) The various tupperware containers with out lids and the pseudo-lids made of rubber.
3) Most of the vegetable peelers that were intended to replace the kind I used as a kid.
4) Most of the pans that she has collected from thrift stores. I will show her pictures of what I want and she will bring me something that is completely different and is "better."
5) The baskets she places in the refrigerator to "organize" the shelves that reduce the capacity and versatility of the refrigerator space.

Since I do 90% of the cooking, I would love to go through the kitchen and get rid of 40% of the kitchen equipment. However, to do so would involve slaughtering sacred cows - her Grandmother's tupperware without lids, Aunt Myrtle's baking stuff, etc.

I also got rid of some old baking sheets and replaced with three new ones from Chicago Metallic. I am not happy about the care instructions for them, but I guess we’ll see how they perform.

And I’ve ordered a new tea mug just for me.

Am looking to discard some more stuff.

What about you?

About half the non-motorized kitchen implements I have, came from my family, some from long before I was born. Spoons, knifes, bowls, cooking sheets, hand-mixers and such. The prize of them all, an old, wall-mounted, Swingaway hand can opener, is better than anything made today.

'Funerals' take place right before the trash truck arrives. SO has learned to correctly interpret my 'I do not remember where I put it'.

We are tossing a Tassimo coffeemaker, because we got a Keurig. It was too inconvenient to get the Tassimo coffee pods.

I use Reynold's Non-Stick foil and it works great: https://www.reynoldskitchens.com/pro...on-stick-foil/

Wasnt there some society where everybody burned all their household possessions every so many years? Surprised the mass merchandisers dont try to bring that tradition to modern America so they can sell even more stuff....



Guess we could all learn to eat everything raw. Just need a sharp knife and wood block if your teeth arent so good anymore.
