My glasses would be doomed in something like that.

Agreed, useful only if you don't want to use that cd drive again. Hello, dust.

Unfortunately for them I'm not free. =P

I throw everything away. Home, work, doesn't matter. It's either massively important or it's garbage.

Well, mine's still above the fireplace, and I didn't put it there because of style. It's just convenient, and frankly, I have no idea where else it could go. Home's too small for big media furniture.

That said, I'd love to cut into the wall and build it in. Looks sharp.

...I'd just end up eating brisket for breakfast. And no, there's nothing wrong with that!

How convenient of a post. I usually use water when I bake a loaf of bread, but I had some milk to use up yesterday... didn't work out as well as I had planned.

Always had electric. Went from those damned coils to a lovely glass top back to those damned coils.

Doesn't stop me from cooking whatever I want.

Unlike a lot of commentators, I'm not an artist/student, and I don't fully understand why people take issue with nudes either. It' Anyhow, it's your stuff, in your home. Put it where it looks right.

I do cook for one, so most of my breakfasts are either on a griddle or in the 8-inch skillet. It looks a little worse for it, too, compared to the larger.

Another cheer for fritattas.

I use mine every couple of days for kneading bread and the occasional pizza dough. I do live alone, but a 3-cup loaf of bread doesn't last long around here.

Ah, a challenger appears. I've never tried my hand at this, but maybe it's about time. I know it won't be enough to pry me away from my favorite Indian restaurant.

I use one from LG. It's interesting. Good for small loads. Definitely does cut down on the water and electric bill. It's neat to set it to run while I'm at work and finish up a little after I get home. Takes some getting used to, though. I do more ironing than I would prefer. I can cut down on that by hanging clothes immediately upon removal so they can finish drying.

I also learned how to repair the dang thing... check your pockets carefully. Nothing like having to open up the water pump and extract tiny objects from the impeller housing.

It's like learning anything else.

Do it.

Neat. I use a unit from LG that is both a washer and a condenser dryer, so in addition to the energy savings, I save a few feet of space, too. They're not for everyone, but are great for low-volume laundry.

I've got a fairly affordable off brand dutch oven from Sams Club, it as around $30-$40, works just great. I've read other folk who have had great success with theirs. I know the Le Creuset products are wonderful and all, but at 1/10th the price... eh. I'll let you know in a few years if it's still with me.

My favorite timer. Set it by turning a dial, and it has a clock with four separate timers, able to display two at a time.
