Friday Five: Household Appliances Edition

Sally writes: As I write this I am waiting for my new dishwasher to be delivered ... So being in a domestic frame of mind I thought I'd ask:

1. What is the one appliance you simply couldn't be without?
I suppose the washing machine, because without it I'd have to go to the laundromat... or have dirty clothes.

2. What if anything would you happily give up?
Our current dryer -- because it takes waaaay too long to dry the clothes. (Well, actually it's more of a venting problem we need to address.) But in any event I'd replace it with the Whirlpool Duet Steam Dryer which would nearly eliminate the need for ironing.

According to the ad, "It uses a gentle, yet powerful combination of mist and heat, allowing the garment to be dry, refreshed, and ready-to-wear as soon as the cycle is finished." Yeah, baby!

3. What is the strangest household appliance you own?
I was stumped on this one, so I asked Hubby who said "the quesadilla maker". (Hmmm... perhaps it's just the foods I create with the quesadilla maker that Hubby finds strange.)

4. What is the most luxurious household appliance you own?
I suppose I'd have to say my Starbucks Barista Aroma Solo coffee maker. It brews just enough for one (because it's all about ME!) You can program it the night before to brew right into the tumbler, then grab it to go in the morning.

5. Tell us about your dream kitchen- the sky is the limit here...
Back in college when I was taking lots of chemistry classes (e.g. organic, inorganic, biochemistry), I decided my dream kitchen would be designed to look like a chemistry lab. And I still think that would be fun. You would measure and mix things with beakers and test tubes, heat water with bunsen burners, etc. I must be a mad scientist at heart.

I think a kitchen that looks like a lab has a certain poetry to it. Go for it!

#4 I gotta get me one!

My husband used to teach science and when they got new glassware they would make root beer. So why not a whole kitchen like a lab?

I remember those laundromat days...ugh!!!

Having beakers and bunsen burners would be a kick in the kitchen.

who needs a kitchen .. as long as one has a coffee pot and microwave? :)

we have a nice washer and dryer, but my son refuses to do laundry more than about once a month...Maybe I'll start sending him to the laundromat ;)
Great play!
