Appliances on kitchen counters - need cook's perspective
Do you keep appliances on the counters or do you put it away and take it out just when you need it. I am guessing there are some appliances like coffee pots or toasters that stay on the counters. But what about the food processor, the vitamix, the bread machine, the flour mill, the rice cooker, the small spice grinder, the juicer, the crock pot?
I am just wrapping up a kitchen remodel and am thinking about what goes where. I have a galley style kitchen and no island or pantry. I did end up getting deeper counters - 30in deep. The idea at the back of my mind was that I could leave the appliances on the counter and still have enough room in front of the appliances for prep etc. What do you guys do?
The kitchens forum usually weighs in on the side of no or minimal appliances on the counters - understandably as they are mostly folks who love their new counters and really want to keep it clear and clean. I want perspectives from people who cook a lot and often cook complicated dishes.
