KitchenAid Metal Toaster

Stainless Steel 4 Slice KMTT400SS

KitchenAid Metal Toaster | Stainless Steel 4 Slice KMTT400SS

The truth is I don't believe in toasters. In fact, I don't believe in any kitchen appliance that takes up so much space and only serves one function. I just don't have enough room in my kitchen for a one-trick pony.

Chrome Panini Grill Sandwich Press GR-1

Cuisinart Griddler | Chrome Panini Grill Sandwich Press GR-1

Ah, the taste of Europe. Though panini is an Italian word, you'll find these hot, grilled sandwiches far beyond Italy's border. As a student in London, they were one of my favorite things for lunch on the run.

Breville Juice Fountain Elite Juicer  | Kitchen Stainless 1000 Watt 800JEXL

There's a reason why Breville's 800JEXL Juice Fountain is called "elite." It's not exactly the most affordable kitchen appliance on the market these days. You'd have to drink awful lot of juice to make the purchase financially worthwhile.

That being said, there's a reason why Breville's Juice Fountain ...
