    Default What appliance would you easily give up?

    We have all got so used to living with objects making our lives much easier nowadays. There are some appliances in our kitchens that we would never give up, while others may be pretty unneccessary. What appliance would you give up should you toss one away? I would give up my microwave, I hardly use unless I come home late and need to fix something really quick.

    The Hand-held Electric Beater - just used three four times. The usage is just 3 or 4 minutes and cleaning the beaters takes much longer and too much hassle.

    I had a citrus juicer as well, just faster and easier to squeeze the oranges and lemons by hand before I get it out and clean it! By the way I rerely if ever squeeze citruses.

    I do however, have a handheld mixer but it is electric and I use it to mash potatoes or any fruit to make deliscious summer refreshing drinks.

    Its easy to say that you can give up an appliance, but when its gone then there would a day when you would need and you think oh I needed that appliance and ive sold it or given it away. Its happened in my house so im talking from experiences.

    I think a juicer is something which you can only use during the winter season, because thats when you get carrots, amla, beet widely and can easily juice them, in summers there is hardly anything to juice apart from mausambi's which are juiced using a citrus juicer.

    I think many of us were the same. We ahve a citrus juicer too and I don't fine it a necessity. Also, it is easy to dispose that. Lol! I just don;t want to give up my other appliances as they were a big help to me.

    I did give up my TV antenna, there is not much use for it now, since I do not watch local TV station, but stick to cables and decoders.

    I also gave on my antenna. There's no use of it. Also, there's internet where you can also watch what you can see on TV. Anyway, we gave up on our TV primarily because of cable connection.

    To be honest I bought a digital camera a couple of years ago and ice only had it out of the box once.

    While the quality of the photographs are better than a smartphone, it's not that noticeable so it's now sat that just collecting dust.

    I would get away with my washing machine. It is too noisy and does not clean clothes properly. There is no comparison for manual hand wash. I got it repaired a few weeks back and it's again back to the same condition. These electronic equipments are meant to make our life easier, but in most of the cases they create more discomfort or illness to us. Like too much of frozen food can create stomach related ailments and there is a risk of radiation in microwave ovens.

    Earlier when people use to do it with hands, there were only limited diseases as it gives a good exercise to body which in turn burn fat.

    Our washing machine is not working just yesterday. I am not planning to buy a new one because I still do hand washing despite having a washing machine. Just like you said, it doesn't clean the clothes properly. That's the reason why I do manual washing too. Also, clothes are more likely to tear out with washing machine.

    I would throw away the Electric Roti Maker. This is the worst appliance that I possess I guess. It makes the worst possible rotis in the world. I am not that much into cooking. I can neither make a proper round shape of the chapatis, nor I can roast them properly. But whatever I make, it is way better than the ones made in the roti maker. Guys, please don't buy this ever.This is a complete wastage of money.

    I never saw roti maker. Since I am not from India, I am quite ignorant how it looks. Maybe I will search in Google Image. But I am familiar of roti. I think I should ask some Indian people here as they have a large community in my country.

    while i wholly agree to your point about manually washing clothes being a good exercise, but there is a good comparison to manual handwash. good washing and drying machines do a terrific job of cleaning, better than manual washing. and drying machines also work very well (albeit having both at home is difficult).

    and i had been contemplating buying one. even though i knew about the dismal feedback regarding these roti-makers, but was still thinking to buy and test one. but doesn't look that will happen now, after reading your post.

    roti is basically unleavened bread. it is cooked over pan and flame/'baked' in cylindrical clay-applied ovens called 'tandoors' and then eaten either with vegetables and lentil soup, or/and meat, kebabs, curd, etc., or even just with clarified ghee/butter and sprinkled on top with some spices mixture.

    there are a variety of it made in homes and restaurants across India, known by different names.
