My bean to cup coffee machine too! Susan, which one did you buy? We got the DeLonghi Magnificia and it is used more than any other electrical item in the house with the exception of the lights!

The cooker

I suppose it has to be the cooker, though it's not my favourite item. It sits in the corner smirking at me. I never know quite what it's going to get up to. On a good day it behaves, but the oven either gets so hot it glows or refuses to go beyond slow cook. It's certainly the most used. Otherwise at the moment it has to be the Airfryer. I use it so much. It's quick and cooks things beautifully. No doubt it will get knocked off the top spot when some new gadget arrives.

I haven't got a door on my kitchen, just a curtain.

My's always on, always ready for me to cook...dries the clothes, warms the plates, airs the sheets...the dog sleeps by it and I don't have to clean the oven as it burns off ( the top is another matter)! I can cook pancakes and fish on the hot plate...alas stir frying is a no go!

I've always wanted an Aga or something of that ilk. I was in our local DIY super store today. They had something that looked vaquely Aga-ish.. I had a quite drool, then made myself look at it properly. Lovely big oven, tiny fire box, it would never heat up. Did see a nice log burner with oven on top which would work, but it's too tall for our fire places, so it's back to dreaming. Hubby wants to move into an apartment when we finally sell this place, but it will have to be a ground floor one, as I'm having an Aga!

There are lots of different ones some burn oil ( that's mine) coal gas and my friend had an electric one...I do have to say that the oil is getting expensive but I don't have to have the heating on downstairs...nice and snuggly. Again in these summers that we have been having I have had to turn it off as it's roasting so hence the other gadgets..Halogen oven, Cobb bbq etc..swings and roundabouts I suppose happy!

The delonghi Perfecta Bearman, bought about two years ago. I bought a Gaggia 10 years ago but replaced it when it went wrong for the umpteenth time

My Kenwood Chef....would not be without it!!

Just one? Really the three things I tell my students they must have are the Minipimer immersion blender with chopper box, a pressure cooker and an oven you can trust.
I have a little electric chopper box I bought from Lidl for half nothing (10 or 12 Euros) and I use it all the time. Zipzipzip and it's onion that DH will eat without complaint, without the nightmare of trying to clean a food processor. I had a Moulinex but it was such a pain to clean that when I dropped the lid (these terrazo floors!) and it broke, I wasn't really sorry that Moulinex had closed and I couldn't get another.
