    I use my waffle maker at least once a week.
    I also use my dishwasher daily. it turns out that the dishwasher saves water vs handwashing.

    You need more than one knife. Most sets are overkill sure, but you don’t want to use a big 8″ chef’s knife for everything. A good paring knife at a minimum is also needed.

    I agree with the dishwasher – especially if you can’t give up the cabinet space for one. I’d rather hand wash my dishes anyway.

    Generally, I prefer appliances that take up as little space as possible, since our kitchen is small. I have a microwave, but it’s mounted above the stove. If I had a regular countertop model, we wouldn’t have one.
