Fun game:

Bold the ones you have and use at least once a year, italicize the ones you have and don’t use, strike through the ones you have had but got rid of.

I wonder how many pasta machines, breadmakers, juicers, blenders, deep fat fryers, egg boilers, melon ballers, sandwich makers, pastry brushes, cheese knives, electric woks, miniature salad spinners, griddle pans, jam funnels, meat thermometers, filleting knives, egg poachers, cake stands, garlic presses, margarita glasses, tea strainers, bamboo steamers, pizza stones, coffee grinders, milk frothers, piping bags, banana stands, fluted pastry wheels, tagine dishes, conical strainers, rice cookers, steam cookers, pressure cookers, slow cookers, spaetzle makers, cookie presses, gravy strainers, double boilers (bains marie), sukiyaki stoves, food processors, ice cream makers, takoyaki makers, and fondue sets languish dustily at the back of the nation’s cupboards.

Hmm. I try to only have useful implements. I'd love to have a double boiler; I improvise. I'm giving up my food processor because I got a fancy blender that does the job of both, and can also be a coffee/flour grinder. Ice cream maker is high on my list--the attachment for my kitchenaid mixer. Some of these things make much more sense in the food allergy cooking world. Also, my ex-roommate had an oft-used electric wok, and my mom has a spaetzle maker that was used most weeks until she discovered she can't eat gluten anymore.

I also have a cupcake carrier that holds 36, and one that holds 24, can also carry cakes, and kind of folds up. I think I'm going to give away the 36 one, but it is occasionally VERY useful. I do have a cupcake stand that is almost never used, and a pair of bento rice molds that only got used while I was in massage school and making cold lunches every day.
