    1. Good enough kitchen appliances brands recommendations

      Hello everyone,

      I'll be moving to a new apartment where the kitchen does not have any kitchen appliances. From my searches on /r/BuyItForLife, it seems everyone usually recommends Bosch and Miele appliances, but they are usually a bit on the expensive side. I'm not sure about buying for life at this stage in my life because I think this is not my final home, and I think in the future I won't be bothered to take everything with me. Also, it will be always be easier to sell the apartment in the future with the equipped kitchen.

      It seems Panasonic and Mitsubishi appliances are actually quite good and cheaper than Bosch and Miele, but unfortunately, these brands are basically non-existent here in Europe (regarding kitchen appliances, I mean).

      So, basically, is there still any brand left that might be as good as Bosch and Miele but slightly cheaper? Maybe Whirlpool or Electrolux brands?

      Hi, I'm pretty new to browsing coffee at home.

      Currently using aeropress, timemore c2 titanium, and electric gooseneck kettle with no temp control.

      The coffee I'm making is pretty good (to my novice taste buds) but I'm looking to elevate that. I'm planning on upgrading either the the grinder or the kettle.

      From what I understand, grind quality can affect taste, but consistent water temperature should also help improving workflow and taste as well.

      Which one do you think is the better upgrade in terms of producing better coffee?

      For grinder I'm now considering 1zpresso K-plus. For kettle, I'm looking at Timemore fish kettle.

      Thank you.

    3. What piece of kitchen equipment do you regret buying, and why?

      What piece of kitchen equipment do you regret buying? Why? I bought a garlic masher. (I don't think it was anywhere near £26 when I bought it!)...

      What piece of kitchen equipment do you regret buying? Why?

      I bought a garlic masher. (I don't think it was anywhere near £26 when I bought it!) https://www.amazon.co.uk/royalvkb-VP303-370-Royal-Garlic-Crusher/dp/B000OW58D8/ It looks really heavy, but it actually isn't. I regret it because it's not nearly as much fun to use as it looks. It's safer than mashing garlic with a knife, and it's easier to clean than a press. But other than that it's not worth the money. The garlic cards (credit card sized bits of plastic with embossed letters) that you rub garlic over are better.

    4. Has anyone gifted you food or a kitchen / cooking gadget that you particularly liked?

      Coming up to Christmas and gift-giving is on my mind and I wondered if you've ever been given food or a food-related gadget that you liked? I guess we can also talk about the misses too. I like...

      I like chocolate, so small amounts of nice chocolate are something that I like.
