Too Many Cooking Appliances

I look around at people's houses and realize these days so many people have unnecessary cooking appliances.

Why do people have sandwich presses when they have ovens?

Why have rice cookers when that same oven usually has a stove top?

Why have a toaster when you have that same oven?

Why have an electric "air fryer" when you got an oven? Some even have little fans in them.

Why have a dedicated electric coffee maker when they have stovetop percolators made for coffee brewing right on the stove?

Why have an electric kettle when you have a stove top on that same oven?

Why have an electric egg poacher when you have that same stove top?

Why would someone have an electric bread maker when... Jesus... You have a bloody oven?

Why have a microwave when you have an oven/stovetop? Ok... I'll give you the microwave. It really is a great and efficient way of cooking quick.

But I see all these people with generally nice homes but their kitchen countertops are so PACKED with tons of redundant cooking appliances. All a good cook or anyone with even minimal cooking intelligence needs is a stovetop/oven combo.

        Halfway agree about toaster/oven
        But they're generally more efficient than firing up a 3600 watt oven and waiting for it to heat. The elements are closer to the food, and in the case of a toaster, on both sides. Quicker and more efficient.

          Understood. Explain toaster ovens though. It's like another pointless half way between a toaster and oven appliance that takes up a unnecessarily large amount of counter space.

            NTA, but if I had the counter space I would definitely get one. Even ignoring the convection (which most ovens in America, at least, don’t have,) the convenience of being able to cook shit in it at a different temp than what’s cooking in my oven is huge. Roasting a chicken at 450 and roasting vegetables at 550 would be very nice. Instead, I have to settle for alternative temps or cooking methods.

            My parents have a gas stove but when they renovated their kitchen about twenty years ago, they used the space where an oven would go for more storage space as their kitchen is pretty small (old farmhouse). They've been using a toaster oven for two decades and it's been great for them. Back when there were kids in the house, it might have been an issue cooking family dinners but now that it's just the two of them, the toaster oven is a better solution. They could probably also get away with only having two burners on their stove but four burner cooktops are so much more common that it probably wouldn't have been worth the trouble to find something with just two burners.

          yeah but that is moronic. An electric pressure cooker = pressure cooker, rice cooker, steamer, slow cooker, dough proofer and more. It's safer and more convenient, you set it and forget it, it turns off automatically, delayed start is useful as well. Why get a single purpose stovetop pressure cooker when one can get a higher-value multi-purpose item?

        Some people use a microwave for medical reasons.
        I work in In-Home Care and i use a microwave about 15 times a day to heat up heating pads, and to warm up plates/bowels for serving food.
        It's also better for my clients to reheat their dinner i prepare in the afternoon so they will not have to use the oven or gas range. (safety issue)

    That I have no fricking idea. A pot full of oil, or simple oven, even without fan, gives about the same result.

    Percolators suck, drip coffee maker is automatic, and objectively makes a better coffee. Not to mention you can have an espresso machine, or capsule machine, effects of which is hard to replicate on stove.
    >Why have an electric kettle when you have a stove top on that same oven?
    Kettle is more efficient and faster. Even if you have induction cooktop... If you have gas, or resistive? forget about it. You'd microwave water instead.
    >Why would someone have an electric bread maker when... Jesus... You have a bloody oven?
    Electric bread maker is pretty smart and complicated device with slow pre-heat that modifies starches and what not in the dough, giving you bread you can make on stove and oven, but it would take much more effort than just dropping all components inside a machine. Not to mention that most people don't really like sticky doughs.
    >Why have a microwave when you have an oven/stovetop? Ok... I'll give you the microwave. It really is a great and efficient way of cooking quick.
    More efficient at re-heating food than oven/stop. It sucks at cooking however.

    But here is a thing. They are... small appliances. You can put them in the cupboard. And keep counter free of clutter. With exception of kettle and coffee maker. Those have to stay because you use them every day. And microwave. Maybe toaster or whatever junk you use daily.

      Because it has a keep warm function and easily cooks enough rice for 10 people without me having to pay absolutely ANY attention. Plus it can cook any kind of rice without me having to think about it, and it probably makes it better.

      >Why have a toaster when you have that same oven?

      Because it's super convenient and very fricking fast. Also much safer to boil and handle 2liters of water in that than in a pot.

      >Why have an electric egg poacher when you have that same stove top?

      The frick is an egg poacher?

      >Why would someone have an electric bread maker when... Jesus... You have a bloody oven?

      Because it makes bread, not just cook it (don't have one but considered getting one).

      I keep my rice cooker, kettle, and microwave out. I use the rice cooker at least every 2 days unless we have a pasta week.

      My wife buys all these stupid little kitchen gadgets and it drove me crazy for a long time but now we have a space in our basement where we keep them all and even if we use it less than once a year, they're not cluttering up my kitchen. So while the toaster, coffee maker and kitchen aid stand mixer are more permanent fixtures, the griddle, crepe maker, ice cream machine, and dozens of little useless gadgets stay downstairs. But we are blessed with the space to do this and many others are not

      I have a good ice cream machine, it sits in my pantry, but it makes damn good ice cream over the summer

      Also it helps me because I always have something to buy her for Christmas. Bread makers, instant pot and accessories, ninja blenders and popcorn makers and coffee bean grinders... so many stupid things I can buy for her and be a hero

        Easiest way to get heat.
        How do you boil water for french press anyway? Kettle on gas stove? That is less efficient than burning same gas in generator and using that energy to heat up electric kettle, which is mind blowing, but is true.

          Easy for the consumer who just plugs a device in the wall. But you also have to think about the whole chain of production and distribution of electricity. It requires a lot of people, a lot of maintenance and a frickton of materials.
          On the other hand a woodstove is just dry wood you're burning in a stove. All things considered I find that easier.
          But I agree it's mind-boggling and too challenging for the average city dweller.

            So is gas infrastructure, which requires even more maintenance.
            >On the other hand a woodstove is just dry wood you're burning in a stove. All things considered I find that easier.
            Wood is dirty and requires you to cook outdoors, which sucks. Same with charcoal.
            Gas sucks, and you want me to burn wood? Which I have to store somewhere so it is dry and won't turn into a smoke bomb?
            Not to mention that controlling heat produces by wood is nearly impossible, while with electric heat you can dial in amount of heat precisely.

              Not hard to do, unless you live in a really small flat.
              >controlling heat produces by wood is nearly impossible
              Electric and gas ovens are about 100 years old, humans used wood and coal for centuries to cook. You'll have to learn but it's not that hard. Sure those modern techs are convenient for us but you'll have to think in the long term. In the future (your future), do you believe it'll be as easy to access gas and electricity as it is nowadays? I don't think so. Then, harvesting wood from trees you have on a small land can be really useful and sustainable as the same time. Trees don't require much maintenance, they help to grow healthier and better crops, they prevent floods, they capture carbon dioxyde. Trees are the opposite of the "too many uneccessary cooking appliances" issue.

                It barely works with gas, and you want it to work with wood that burns not clean?
                Other thing is that chimney is a giant hole in the house that makes it less air tight, which sucks as it means higher heating bill in winter, and higher cooling bill in the summer.
                >Not hard to do, unless you live in a really small flat.
                Still an effort.
                >Electric and gas ovens are about 100 years old,
                Yeah... right. But there is a reason why you don't see wood stoves anymore. Probably because they suck compared to low-effort, low-maintenance modern stove.
                Just like cars, you know. People don't ride horses anymore.
                >ut you'll have to think in the long term. In the future (your future), do you believe it'll be as easy to access gas and electricity as it is nowadays?
                Yep. Pretty sure. At least electricity would stay. Not sure about gas. And you know, if they are gone for whatever reason, they we would talk wood. As for now... I see no point in wood stove unless you're living somewhere really remote with no ability to get anything, except chop wood.
                If anything, getting wood would be much harder, because some environmentalist will prohibit you from cutting down trees or something moronic like that.

    Most of these are going to give a very different result to tossing everything in your oven to bake or broil them, some are for people who are eating/drinking the same thing every day, air fryer is the only one that is redundant.

    >Why have an electric kettle when you have a stove top on that same oven?
    Because I want my tea sometime today. Not at the next meal. Mine even stops at the selected temp for tea types. And it works on instant soups and noodles as well. Plus the beeper on it is great because I always walk away to prep other stuff when brewing tea. AND kettles are the same price as traditional stove top kettles (unless you go fancy goose neck iKettle type crap).

    >Why would someone have an electric bread maker when... Jesus... You have a bloody oven?
    Because ingredients go in, and hot bread comes out. Even better - you can put it on a timer overnight and have hot fresh bread in the morning. Also it is a small proofing box that leaves the oven free for other tasks, and doesn't heat up my kitchen.

    >Why have a microwave when you have an oven/stovetop?
    My microwave is a 3-in-1 now, and it's fricking brilliant. Basically an instant-on oven, an air fryer, and a standard nuke box. Easily hands down the kitchen appliance I use the most now.

    >Why have rice cookers when that same oven usually has a stove top?
    Rice cookers of any variant (asian, instapot, crock pots, knockoff cookers, etc.) are all handy because they cook rice while you are cooking other things. So with proper timing, you have hot rice with hot mains. You "can" do this on a stove, but it eats up a burner slot, one you might need for your main dish. Plus, as with any electric dodad, you can walk away and it beeps when done. It's FAR more dangerous to walk away from the stove, I only do it with the simmer burner because that runs for hours for stews/soups.

    Sure I could "knife skill" deli meat, but the deli slicer I have takes that pain in the ass task and turns it into a precise and quick task. Same with the stand mixer - there are just some tasks, especially cookies, that you need that fricker.

    My kitchen isn't huge but it does have an attached pantry. I keep my cooking appliance in there, mostly in a IKEA Kallax shelving unit. I have a cover on my stove that I sit the cooking appliances on when I use them. I do use to stove frequently but it's not all that often that I use both it and a cooking appliance. When that does happen, I just make do with a bit less counter space. The main thing is that I put them away in the pantry after use.
    On a typical work day, around 11am, I move the two Instant Pots out of the pantry and on to the stove cover. I put meat in one and veggies in the other, set their respective programs, and then work for another hour. Around noon I go into the kitchen and the bulk of lunch is hot and ready.

    If I'm making a custom pizza with certain cheeses on the top, I use the microwave to melt that particular cheese before I put it in the covered pan. Can cook popcorn efficiently if I just stand in front of it to listen for pops, don't have to create a dirty pan with oil in it. Efficient at thawing meat for your STOVE. Can reheat your coffee immediately without using the stove. Reheats tea. Can bring back a cookie or pastry to out-of-the-oven temp within 20 seconds. It's not the 1920's.

    Toasters are fine. Rice cookers are fine if you eat rice 3 or more times a week. An air fryer is not worth it if you have a convection oven. If you don't have one it is only worth it if you use it 3 or more times a week.

    I have a toaster oven because I'm not waiting 45 minutes to preheat an oven and turn my entire apartment into a sauna just to toast some bread

    I have a rice cooker because I eat rice

    I don't have an electric air fryer, or an electric coffee maker

    I have an electric kettle because it's faster and it has a temperature control

    I have literally never heard of an electric poacher and I think I can see the problem now, you're a mentally ill hoarder and you think everyone else must be too

    I don't have an electric bread maker either, see above

    I have a microwave because it came with my apartment and I'm not spending $25k to redo my kitchen just to get rid of the microwave, I would rather put that towards redoing the bathroom

    Have you considered seeking professional help?

    You shouldn't be eating things like rice, pasta, potatos breads/grains more than three times a week unless you are extremely athletic or have a very physically demanding job. Orientals just eat small amounts of rice and thankfully our western influence is making a very noticeable change in oriental culture. Rice is on the decline. You ever see pictures of Jap girls and Siamese/Chinese before the 1950s? They look flat as a board. Now, with all of our good nutrition influencing them they look like real curvy healthy women with nice breasts.

    i sort of agree but you're also being moronic on purpose, most of those monotaskers are better than the "JUST USE DA OVEN/STOVE" equivalent in some way. either faster or more consistent results, or they allow you to multitask better.
    People just need to take inventory of what they actually use and cycle things into longterm storage if they're not using them at least once a month.

      You don't need much. For small toaster oven 1500W is more than enough.
      If it is well-insulated (most aren't insulated at all), it would be even fast.
      Big ovens (like in cooking ranges) are moronic, why do you need to heat up entire cabinet, if you're cooking just a small pizza? Toaster oven is much smarter choice. And as for turkey, don't need to bake entire turkey, because no fricking way I'd be able to eat it, and if ppl come over, it is much cheaper and cleaner just to invite then to restaurant, wagies there will clean up dishes and cook, magic.

    Rice cookers are fantastic, no fuss. Set it and forget it. If you eat a lot of rice you really should have one. Asian people aren't wrong.

    They're way, way faster. Great for tea, instant soups, etc.

      you can even boil water in the kettle, and then pour it into the cooking pot.

    If you really think a useless sandwich press is doing something radically different that you can't do with a pan, spatula and ideally lid, I've got a bridge to sell you.

          Or I can just put in in the fricking sandwich maker and idk, pour a drink or press a button on coffee maker while its cooking, without needing to come back and flip it.

    I'd rather have a 'toaster oven' than a microwave. One that's the size of a microwave is usually fully usable as a mini oven and then you have two ovens. Maybe I'll replace my stove vent with a microwave vent combo to save space, my house is small. Are those any good?

    >Why have a dedicated electric coffee maker when they have stovetop percolators made for coffee brewing right on the stove?
    jesus christ that's like asking why someone uses a pan for steak when they can boil it in the microwave, but even then that analogy doesn't properly express how shit percolators are to coffee. you're genuinely better off setting a pot to boil, dropping coffee in and pouring it over a filer. there is nothing quite as bad as a percolator for coffee
    also it's a dead technology, almost no one uses a percolator, are you 80 years old? there's good reason for that, even if you don't mind having a machine that's optimized to making bad coffee, it's a pain in the ass to clean comparatively to a drip machine, pour over, moka pot, or basically any other option. it also doesn't mind itself, you'll get even worse coffee if you set it and forget it.
