Before you start offering condolences, it is not a person but a couple of my kitchen appliances.
In the past week or two both the microwave and breadmaker have ceased to function. GMan and I are planning to go to the appliance store tomorrow to purchase a new microwave. I have previously had a Panasonic and from what I can see from my research we will probably buy another similar one this time.
Through the wonders of social media I have discovered that a friend has an unwanted breadmaker languishing in a cupboard which she has kindly offered to me. I am not sure when our paths will cross so in the meantime GMan decided to have a go at mixing the dough using the dough hook on the KitchenAid mixer and baking it in the oven.
I think this is what success looks like.
He baked it in this cast iron Dutch oven.
It is a little more time-consuming than the ‘set and forget’ breadmaker but will suffice until we replace the breadmaker.
Although we have managed to bake bread and create meals using alternative methods, there is no doubt that both the breadmaker and microwave definitely have a place in my kitchen. In fact, I would not hesitate to replace most of my appliances as they perform a valuable function.
What about your appliances?
we had our breadmaker shake itself onto the floor last year! it broke a piece but we managed to find a replacement part on ebay. Other than that, fortunately nothing’s broken lately, in the kitchen that is! I seem to be destroying headphones at about a pair a month!
That must have been a shock to all concerned. Lucky that you were able to source a replacement part
