I am cleaning out my cupboards and I have noticed that I have a number of small appliances that I have not used in years, or ever. Many of them were wedding/x-mas presents from well meaning relatives.:

Bread machine
two electric skillets (?!?)
multi-tiered food dehydrator
small fryer

Anybody want any of them before I haul them off to Goodwill?


p.s. more to come as I go deeper into the clutter of my pantry.......

Hey Niki!

If you want to dump that food dehydrator on someone I'm a willing taker.

Best regards,

Amanda

Is the small fryer a deep-fryer? I've always wanted one of those. Not to be greedy :D but the bread machine has me tempted, although I have no idea if I would use it much or not. Hmmmm....

The deep fryer is black and circular (about 8 inches in dia.) and made by Rival. I would say that it holds, maybe 3 quarts of liquid.

The bread machine has not been used much at all. I used to make dough in it, but now I have a stand mixer for that.

You know you want them....

how about adding an electric skillet to your order? For you, today, it's free!

:D Okey dokey, I'll take the fryer and the bread machine, unless someone else really wants the bread machine. Speak now or forever hold your peace. I really don't need the skillet, though, I'll have a hard enough time finding room in my kitchen for the other two gadgets :D . Thanks, Niki!

Jeff's mom kept buying me electric skillets. I guess it's just the way her generation used to cook.

Her recipies always start with: Open a can of cream of mushroom soup...

Still, her recipie for posole is tried and true, and I am keeping the crock-pot to make it in!

I can just bring the fryer and bread machine to the next event you drive to, okay?

Ahhhggrrrr!
If anyone else has a deydrator they no longer use I would love it!
(I'm getting into camp cuisine - fine cooking while out in the great outdoors- and dehyrating is a great way to bring food with lots o' flavor and little weight.)
If I can't eat well, at the top of a mountain, miles from the nearest restaurant or grocery store, well that just won't do!

Now who can top that for 'Ultimate Foodie'?

How about a stove-top espresso pot for the campfire?

I had a dehydrator once. Kind of a pain to clean. Now I just put whatever I want to dry in the oven on the lowest setting. Open the door if necessary. Probably not as efficient, but I make my own raisins and oven-dried tomatoes all the time. And cleanup is easy if you put the items on some foil or parchment.

Yes. But my oven is broken.
And I heard it it not as cost effective if you have a gas oven......

The dehydrator that I am getting rid of is plastic with a fan base. Looks kinda like this http://store.yahoo.c...ng/21-1240.html. The whole thing except the base can go in the dishwasher.

But I have never used it for meat, only fruits and veggies. Very easy to clean.

I knew I couldn't pawn off electric skillets on Foodies. Okay, they're going to Goodwill!

Wait! I'll find room for an electric skillet! No idea what I'll use it for yet, but if I find I don't use it within 6 months I'll pass it along to someone else. Fair enough?

So you don't have to have it hanging around until I see you at an event, I'd be happy to come pick it up from you. And thank you for offering these small appliances. It's downright neighborly of you.

Oh, P & J, I already sent them off to Goodwill. :D I'm sorry.

Who knows, with the size of my cupboards, another could turn up!

No worries! I realize I got in late to the discussion. Thanks anyway for the offer.
