Bold the ones you have and use at least once a year, italicize the ones you have and don't use, strike through the ones you have had but got rid of.

I wonder how many pasta machines, breadmakers, juicers, blenders, deep fat fryers, egg boilers, melon ballers, sandwich makers, pastry brushes, cheese knives, electric woks, miniature salad spinners, griddle pans, jam funnels, meat thermometers, filleting knives, egg poachers, cake stands, garlic presses, margarita glasses, tea strainers, bamboo steamers, pizza stones, coffee grinders, milk frothers, piping bags, banana stands, fluted pastry wheels, tagine dishes, conical strainers, rice cookers, steam cookers, pressure cookers, slow cookers, spaetzle makers, cookie presses, gravy strainers, double boilers (bains marie), sukiyaki stoves, food processors, ice cream makers, takoyaki makers, and fondue sets languish dustily at the back of the nation's cupboards.

In my defense, a lot of the things that I own and don't use are gifts. I guess once I became an 'adult,' people realized that I like to cook (and eat) so they started giving me little things that they thought I would appreciate, if not necessarily use.

This summer was when I tried to make full use of the ice cream maker. I made four ice creams, and then had to stop when I realized I was the only one eating it. They were such awesome flavors too: mango, avocado, Thai ice tea, and a plum sorbet. M totally missed out in not sampling them.
