12. It's kitchen tour time!
I blogged about my kitchen way back in MoFo 2008, when it was a brand new kitchen that I got to help design. Seven years later and it is still going strong. Let's take a look!
My double oven. I love my double oven. My only regret is that we got an Electrolux brand, which I now know isn't always accurate with temperatures. You can see that in this photo I have the bottom oven on, it is baking something for tomorrow's post. I would actually one day like a triple oven, two regular sized ones and one super wide one. Is that greedy?
Moving slightly to the right you can see the first bench. It contains my most beloved KitchenAid stand mixer, as well as the shitty Breville blender we bought (I am so disappointed in it compared to my old Breville blender!), the sink and our 'small and regularly used appliance cupboard'.
And to the right again. We have an induction stove top, which is good but it is annoying to buy pans that will actually work on it. I love my pink retro kitchen scales (I also have some digital scales down the side there as well for accurate measuring), and as you can see we have lots of spices and mugs! That little pink pot you can see on the counter is my beloved nutritional yeast jar.
Everything below the counter is drawers, which makes for very efficient storage. They all have the soft-close mechanism, which means it is impossible to slam them dramatically closed. Check out the corner drawers!
On the other side of the servery is the dining room, which also has the pantry cupboard and a chest freezer.
The bottom sections of the pantry cupboard are devoted to 'slightly larger and reasonably frequently used appliances'. I have an appliance problem. We also have a 'large and infrequently used appliance' shelf in another room.
There is also my cookbook shelf. This shelf is actually normally packed, the spaces you can see is because I have books out for MoFo planning. I also have another shelf starting in the lounge room, in addition to the shelves there that have Mum's cookbooks as well.
In case you are wondering, the fridge is opposite where the oven is. I didn't include a photo of what is in my fridge, because I live with omnivore parents, and while it is mostly vegan in there (yay!), there are some other things as well. Here is a photo of some of my magnet collection instead.
That is my kitchen! I love poking around kitchens when I visit people, so I am looking forward to seeing everyone's kitchens today.
