Have you found a use for SAD cooking utensils / appliances? Perhaps a breadknife, toaster, etc...
A kitchen tool is a kitchen tool to me, I try to multi-task everything I have:
I don't use a toaster, actually never owned one - always had a toaster oven or table top convection, but my parents use theirs to heat their weekly batch of waffles up in - just drop in to heat and make crispy. They make a huge batch one day a week using nuts, buckwheat flour, etc., and keep in the fridge to multi-task for a vehicle for a poached egg, a smear of honey. You could do the same with Paleo waffles..
My stainless steel breadbox now holds bags of nuts and has been renamed "the nutcase"
The pot with a built in colander for pasta... Now is used to make bone stock production easier...
Our new house came with a two door wine refrigerator. We darkened one door with brown paper and put the cool setting at 50F for perfect dark/cool spud storage. They really last a long time in there.
Some yes and some no!
Toaster Oven: Now used to reheat small amounts of food, and sometimes grain-free baked goods (cookies, muffins, etc.)
Toaster, Breadmaker: gave away
Quesadilla press, Waffle iron, George Foreman: gave away due to no longer using nonstick cooking surfaces - I cook with plenty of animal fats on stainless steel and soak in soapy water if need be so it barely sticks!
Welp I threw my microwave in the trash, a long with my toaster.
A good slow cooker is where it's at right now for me.
I make some awesome stews! Food just tastes better slow cooked, and the veggies / meat / broth all mix together well.
