I wonder how many pasta machines, breadmakers, juicers, blenders, deep fat fryers, egg boilers, melon ballers, sandwich makers, pastry brushes, cheese boards, cheese knives, crepe makers, electric woks, miniature salad spinners, griddle pans, jam funnels, pie funnels, meat thermometers, filleting knives, egg poachers,cake stands, garlic crushers, martini glasses, tea strainers, bamboo steamers, pizza stones, coffee grinders, filter coffee machines, expresso machines, milk frothers, piping bags, banana stands, fluted pastry wheels, tagine dishes, conical strainers, rice cookers, steam cookers, pressure cookers, slow cookers, spaetzle makers, cookie presses, gravy strainers,double boilers (bains marie), sukiyaki stoves, ice cream makers, popcorn machines, fondue sets, healthy-grills, home smokers, tempura sets, tortilla presses, electric whisks, cherry stoners, sugar thermometers, food processors, stand mixers, mincers, bacon presses, bacon slicers, mouli mills, cake testers, pestle-and-mortars, gratin dishes,apple corers, mango stoners and sets of kebab skewers languish dustily at the back of the nation's cupboards.
Added coffee machines (why have the grinder but no coffee machine?) and popcorn maker. The things I have but don't use are either presents it would be impolite to ditch, or things that I haven't got round to chucking out yet - I know they're in the cupboard by the freezer, but I can't actually get the door open more than 6" without moving the freezer so they'll have to wait.
Later - add tea bag squeezer - never used the thing in my life, but it's an attractive little thing in the shape of a metal bird and lives on the windowsill.
