A good knife is my workhorse. However when I need the kitchen aide mixer I am beyond grateful for it and the same with the vitamix.

We love our giant Kitchenaid mixer. We've yet to use the attachments, however.

The real workhorse of our heavily worked kitchen is a Kitchenaid microwave over the stovetop. I use it for every thing, especially 15 seconds to soften ice cream where it can be scooped.

Default Food processor, stand mixer, or high end blender?

I ended up getting a food processor. It made sense for me at the time because of the things which I prepared. I really wanted a stand mixer as well, but I knew that it would have spent more time in the garage (small kitchen) than it did on my counter. I had a pretty good blender which I didn't use often, so something like a Vitamix would have been overkill for me.

I guess that you unplugged the toaster?

Of course--my hair is already frizzy; don't need it any frizzier!

And, most importantly, it is big enough to be able to do a Costco pizza, instead of using the big oven.

My wife.


Couldn’t resist.


Actually we just remodeled out kitchen.
I would say the 36 inch Fulgor Milano range would be the work horse. I also installed ADA drop down retractable shelf units and pull,out corner cabinet inserts, soft close drawers and pull,up locking shelves fr the big things like the mixer or the slow cooler which really help my wife.

Good knife and hands. Cutting board.
And an old granny fork with one of the tines bent a little so things don't slip off!

I really do use my KA mixer and my Breville counter top oven. They are minor workhorses.

But the thing I drag out to use continually is my Instant Pot. On Sunday I made yogurt and yesterday I cooked black beans. Today I will cook potatoes in it; tomorrow I will probably make brown rice or quinoa. The black beans I cooked in the IP yesterday, were made with chicken broth I had previously made in the IP.

It has become my workhorse. I am planning to upgrade to the newest model, frankly, plus, I also have a smaller IP.

Of all of my kitchen equipment, I use my food processor the least. And, I also use my chef's knife daily.
