I am a cookware wh0re hoarder but deep down I'm a minimalist at heart
On the counter, sits espresso maker, grinder and toaster oven.
I refuse to have anything else exist unless I use it everyday.
So yes, the FP, etc, etc all sit in the pantry closet and does get lugged out. Sometime it's a chore.....but it is what it is for clean countertop living
What camp are you. Minimalist or Maximist ;-)
