Via [personal profile] scriggle/scriggle:

Instructions: Bold the items you have and use at least once a year, italicize the ones you have and don't use, strike through the ones you have had but got rid of:

I wonder how many pasta machines, breadmakers, juicers, blenders, deep fat fryers, egg boilers, melon ballers, sandwich makers, pastry brushes*, cheese knives, electric woks, miniature salad spinners, griddle pans, jam funnels, meat thermometers, filleting knives, egg poachers, cake stands, garlic crushers, martini glasses, tea strainers, bamboo steamers, pizza stones*, coffee grinders, 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, and fondue sets languish dustily at the back of the nation's cupboards.

*I use it every time I make bread, which is at least weekly in winter.

**An essential part of my cold-weather cooking--I make soups a LOT during cold weather.

***What actually IS this, anyway?

I can answer the Tagine question, because I follow cooking and a Russian woman does these amazing posts about what she cooks.

This is her vegetable tagine post that I have saved to Pocket so that if I ever get brave, I'll go make it.

"Tagine, to start with, is a clay cooking dish with a special cone-shaped cover which has a hole on top of it. It is used in Moroccan and other North African cuisines to cook stews (meat, fish or vegetable), which are then served with couscous."
