Today we wrap up the Right-Sizing your Kitchen video series by taking a look at the rest of the kitchen appliances. We’ve already talked about the food processor, blender, mixer, toaster, and microwave… today we cover the rest of them. What are your favorites that I haven’t mentioned? I’m curious to know what other folks are using on a weekly basis that they’ll want to save space for in their tiny house. We’re all different so our collections will be different.
In my experience, less is definitely better in a tiny house. Ours was on the smaller side at 125 square feet, so we really kept a very minimal collection of things in our tiny house kitchen. And there were still things we kept that we didn’t use, so we could have even gone tinier – so to speak. And we’ve just bought a bus that is slightly smaller so we will go through the collection and weed out more things all over again. I love cooking great food simply. It brings me so much joy because the food is more crafted. When I don’t need an appliance to make something it feels more like a work of my own hands, and that is very rewarding to me. In the end the most important things in my kitchen have always been the knife and cutting board, the dutch oven, and a few favorite plates and glasses. Having fresh fruit and vegetables close at hand – usually right on the kitchen counter – is always very satisfying. We keep less around, so we eat fresher food, and that’s one of many reasons why tiny house living has been such a lovely adventure for us.
I’m Carmen Shenk, the Tiny House Foodie, reminding you that we can #LiveTiny, #EmbraceSimplicity and still #EatWell. You may not think that you can go tiny, but I know you can. Thanks so much for watching, I really appreciate it!
