I think the author doesn't cook, routinely, for a family. Those of us who do might not agree with the idea that "a little more prep time" is all you need. That said, it is certainly true that many kitchen appliances are not central to one's cooking life; the problem is, what is central will vary from person to person. I use my bread machine constantly, my countertop blender not at all, my handheld blender all the time in winter for soups. I use my crockpot. A couple might not find it as useful. Many people I know would not be without a rice cooker; I don't need it, but I have to have a waffle maker. Perhaps the solution is to pass on what you find doesn't work for you to someone who'd like to try it.

Many good things to consider whether they apply to me or not . There are a few huge time saving appliances that are only put to task a few times a year, that without, I might not consider that recipe/preparation again .
