Seriously Now -- Which countertop appliances do you leave out on your counter?

Years ago, when I put my first house on the market, the realtor told me to put everything away except the coffee maker. I was miserable for months. Why? Because I must be some kind of kitchen appliance junkie. It has to be so, because the 100+ square feet of granite counters in my kitchen are covered in appliances. And I am forever considering adding to the collection. I love all colors and have no trouble mixing and matching, although most tend to be white.

Let's see, the last one was a rice cooker. It is now next to the microwave (I have two, one is a built-in), the ice tea maker, coffee grinder and coffee maker. That would be the right side of the sink. I won't get started on the other things I like to use, like my Kitchen Aid stand mixer, electric kettle, and blender. About the only things I put away are my slow cooker, ice cream maker and a rarely-used electric fry pan.

I'd buy a high end espresso maker right now if not for the trouble I have deciding what color to choose.

What do you insist upon leaving out on your counters, not matter how silly it is starting to look?
