Default Appliances on the Counter

What appliances do you have out on your counter top?

We have a toaster, coffee maker, and microwave. Not covered.

Seems like a lot of other stuff "resides" on our counters, too.

We have a toaster, coffee machine, electric kettle, can opener and food processor. The microwave has it's own little shelf up above the counter, level with the cabinets.

Yes, too much other junk on the counters!

Micro-wave, coffee pot (mostly used for making tea), toas-ter oven, Kitchenaid stand mixer, Instant Pot pressure cooker.

The toas-ter oven doesn't really earn its counter space, though. We rarely use it.

Coffee maker, Electric tea kettle, Stand mixer, Toaster. I also keep my cooking utensils in caddies (1 for wooden, 1 for plastics) Spice rack. My knives reside on a magnetic strip on the back splash near the stove. All my small appliances such as the pressure cooker, crockpot, electric meat slicer, roaster stock pot are up on a shelf in the laundry room.

Too many, lol! I hate a lot of clutter anywhere but particularly in the kitchen. We have coffee maker; toaster; toaster oven. There are way too many other things there as well but at least they mostly are on the counter on the far side of the room where I don't do any prepping or cooking.

Microwave (only used for tea)is above the counter,level with cabinets.
My plan is to sort 2 long shelves above W&D,& get the food processor,
Instant Pot & mixer off the counter.The Ninja blender stays on the counter,is used
several times a wk for smoothies,the rest won't be replaced. Hand mixer
fits in a drawer & is a handy tool.
A clear counter is great.....all the junk does is drives me batty.LOL

Stand mixer, food processor, toaster oven, toaster, coffeepot and microwave. All but the stand mixer are used weekly if not daily. But the mixer won't fit in a cupboard.

I don't have a n y appliances on my counter....none....not even one!!!! I am blessed enough to have a pantry. The pantry has a shelf where I have the microwave and toaster oven. On the opposite wall I have a counter where I have the coffee pot and then I have a short maybe 2' wide 2 shelf bookcase kinda unit where I keep my cookbooks and the toaster. I don't know if you are familiar with the Pfaltzgraff dishes but about 35 yrs ago I started collecting the Village set. I have the canister set, flatware stand, cookie jar, soap dish, mug rack, salt and pepper shaker, and salt box on the counters. Sometimes I put the spoon holder and utensil crock on the stove island but that's pretty much all I have on the counters.

I have a microwave drawer under the counter and an instant hot water thingy under the kitchen sink so don't need a kettle. On the counter is my kitchen aid stand mixer and a round holder for wooden spoons and such. I have plenty of cabinet space and pull out drawers on the bottom cabinets va shelves and doors so my 2 instant pots are in a pull out easily accessible and off the counter. My toaster lives in a drawer. Don't use it much and it is easy to get to. I have a giant sink and it has a slight "lip" on half of which rests a removable grid shelf so dishes can dry out of sight. We are happy with this set up.
