    1. Oops...no toaster oven. I read that as toaster which I have.I don't get toaster ovens either. Im not a huge appliance person. All they do is take up counter space. If it can't fit in a cabinet...its not wanted lol. Although i swear by our Kitchen Aid.

    2. My Kitchen Aid will always be on the counter. This one is silver, the one before was cobalt blue.

  5. 1. Coffee makers, pots, percolators, drip etc... have been essential since I was 12.
    2. Nope, just a four slot, bagel capable, red toaster.
    3. Pre-ground pepper. I can't taste the difference so cheap it is!
    4. Olive oil for some things Canola and/or vegetable oil for others.
    5. Hell not! I still have nightmares about the fridge I had growing up. Not to mention that gold monstrosity! My small appliances are red.

    3. I remember my parents remodeling their kitchen and putting in the "new" Harvest Gold appliances. I winced then, and I'm wincing now!

  6. Is a coffee maker essential in your kitchen? No. We have a couple in the back of a cabinet. SG says if we make good coffee at home, he'll never leave the house.
    Do you have a toaster oven in your kitchen? No.
    Fresh ground pepper or pre-ground? Both.
    Olive oil, or whatever is on sale? Couldn’t survive without olive oil here. I think we have three different kinds. They are unbelievably specialized.
    Any Olive Green appliances in your house? None. I don’t think they were ever as huge here.

  7. Coffee Maker - Essential.
    Toaster Oven - With just 2 of us, we use it more than we use the full-sized oven.
    Pepper - Fresh-ground
    Olive or Sale - Whatever is on sale.
    Olive Green Appliances - Haven't even seen one since the 1970s. (Didn't even like them then - they always looked dirty to me.)
