Thank you, I feel the same way: love my old, simple garlic press (which my husband already owned when we married, so it goes way back) and don't consider it uncool. Food tastes equally good!
My Uncool Kitchen Tool: Cheap Aluminum Garlic Press

I am so relieved to read all the comments and see I am not alone. For a variety of reasons, we lived for 10 years in the house my husband bought as a single guy. I hated every single day of that decade and could barely muster enough enthusiasm to semi-decorate. Then we got pregnant and moving out became a necessity. We found a fantastic mid-century modern house quite by accident, and moved in four weeks before my due date. My mom helped us do a quick set up of the living and dining rooms, and the baby decided to show up a week early, turning the house into a black hole of interior design. Our girl is now six months old and I am just now starting to figure out where to put the paintings and the books and the tchotchkes. But, that's just emptying out the boxes. The real work will be figuring out how to make my antiques work with the 50's architecture, finding key pieces for this amazing and considerably larger home, and saving enough money to get rid of the 80's kitchen! Seven years might not be enough...
