Upgrade from my previous house, but the woman that painted the inside of my house did a horrible job.
Gas stoves heat up much faster and cool down much much much faster. You have so much more control over the heat level. Have you ever used a gas stove? The difference is like night and day.
I have an electric stove, but I used to have a gas one. Honestly there's not much difference aside from the gas stove heating up a few seconds faster.
It's just a personal preference thing that people get too uptight about.
Electric burners are less precise with heat. It uses heat cycles of heating up then cooling off to get to the heat you've selected which means the heat fluctuates. Its less of an issue with thicker wall cookware or cast iron but that makes it harder to saute or to flip eggs in a dedicated egg pan.
I was about to scream about how unrealistically clean fine dining kitchens are and call you a fag but then I saw the hot holding and realized you just work in the cleanest kitchen in the world. Good grief.

Are you talking about your wife? Or did you let your mother move in with you?
why such a large garbage bin? i've found that people who have that size bins tend to get lazy and wait till the trash can gets completely full to dispose it off. and when you wait that long it will no doubt fill the room with stench.
try using a small trash can that fills up so that you only keep a day's worth of trash in it
Between two outside dogs, a garbage disposal, and an incinerator, I never have to put food in there. We have three recycle bins in the garage. That trash can is for everything else.
It's mostly an old/modern thing. American and Canadian designs are pretty similar in that regard.
Newer building designs have much larger kitchens than anything built 15 years ago.
I find this ironic since people cook far less on average than they used to.

Your sink looks nice, but really small.
What's up with all these kitchens with no dishwasher? And the ones that have no dishwasher, why is there no drying rack or some shit? I mean, I know you aren't supposed to throw pots and pans into the dishwasher, but dishes, silverware, etc are all fine.
Dishwashers are big, bulky, and expensive. Most apartments won't have them.
As for the no drying racks...why would they be out? You put dirty dishes in the sink and leave the rack and tray under it, only talking it out when you actually do the dishes.
Thanks m80, checked'
The sink is just the right size to do any kind of dishes, but that's about it. Dishwashers aren't that common anyway, at least not for us students. Personally I love that the bricks shows at the bottom of the window, and also where the dishes are placed (there's just a white piece of wood at the side, no clue why). .
Good for you, but where I live I've never seen even a bachelor / studio for below a grand, nothing included.
All depends on where your apartment is in the world, in your country, and even in your city.
Hmm, cost of living seems to be a lot cheaper where I live (Florida), which is weird because just an hour away is Orlando which has an enormous cost of living and 2 hours away is Miami which is even more expensive.
What I find great is that it's a "villa" style apartment so I have no one under or above me. And rent is pretty easy with a roommate.
> have my own house
> have to pay shitton in tax
> fuck yeah italy
KD too, I'd say.
In America, it's just Kraft brand macaroni and cheese, same with most other countries. AFAIK, Canada is the only country where it's actually branded and sold as 'Kraft Dinner'.
Yes and no.
You see a lot less of the younger population smoking and more of the older population quitting then a few years ago.
But many Canadians still smoke and have a fairly high percentage of smokers outside of places like B.C. and Ontario.
I think most provinces and territories that have a higher smoker population percentage then the world average of 20%
My Provence is 23%
But I'm sure that doesn't count all the teenagers that smoke here.
And you see a lot more smoking in the rural town areas then in the city.
Like I swear in my home town at least half of everyone smoked.

Even worse, Arlington.
Can't honestly remember, I am 90% sure it's just the IKEA steel kitchen rods, and I bought two sets of those and the hooks. The walls here are all concrete, so I drilled in and it holds up fine.
Looked at Williams Sonoma and Crate and Barrel, they sell the SAME rods for 2x more.
Finally someone with a hood. I don't get how all these fucks cook without a hood, its horrible. Don't even get me started on microwaves installed over the ranges.
Also, sweet range brah.
That looks a lot like my line, but half the size.
I'd show this pic to my chef and suggest a deep cleaning (we're getting to the slow season) but I know I'd be a part of it and fuck that. Make the lazy fucks come in and do that shit when it's dead.

Wow, holy fire waiting to happen. I hope your unit has sprinklers installed.
>a kitchen thread
>it turns into autistic ramblings because OP has an ashtray
Holy shit are you all teenagers or something? Who fucking cares if someone else smokes? I dont smoke but even Im tired of all the faggotry about smoking or smokers.
That's my kitchen, asshat.
Frankly the corner was put in by a retard. I hate this kitchen so much. I think I'm going to buy a chef's table.
Fan built into microwave takes a tiny bit of steam and FUCKING BLOWS IT BACK INTO THE KITCHEN FROM A DIFFERENT HOLE. Do you know what a hood does? Do you know why people install them? Dangit man, no wonder nobody designs kitchens with hoods in this shit hole.
Honestly, in the neighbourhood I live in, there is not a single apartment with a functional kitchen, regardless of the price. I'd be so happy when I'm done with this fucking phd so I can live in a real grown up people apartment.
>Fan built into microwave takes a tiny bit of steam and FUCKING BLOWS IT BACK INTO THE KITCHEN FROM A DIFFERENT HOLE
Not sure what kind of shitty overhead microwaves you've been using, but the one in my place has a vent that directs the steam and shit outside.
>he thinks he's going to have money after school
Kek. Hate to break it to you, anon, but if - IF - you're lucky enough to find work, it's going to pay shit for at least the first few years, regardless of your degree. And on top of that, I assume you have student loans? Yeah, repaying those will eat into what little income you're going to have.
Wherever you live next, it's probably going to be worse than where you're living now. Have fun with that.

It's not the money, it's just the ability to move out of shitty college towns. Everything is designed and catering for manchildren here. I don't have loans though, afromentioned manchildren pay my tuition.
Stereo (my most important appliance) is behind the pantry on the right.
I like that your salamander/broiler looks like he is gritting his teeth.
Thanks. I have 2 of them, they are crazy dudes. Here's another pic, just stocked the pantry yesterday woooo
Not sure that 'being nice' is even the issue here. I mean, if you can prepare meals to your liking, and are satisfied with what you have there, then I am not too sure what separates you from the other kitchens posted here.
this is exactly why I will never live with fucking male roomates. imagine waking up, going to the kitchen to get yourself a coffee and start breakfast and seeing this nuclear disaster zone, with the sink piled up so high you cant even wash your own dishes without sorting thru that mess. god.
Fucking this. Have you seen how a lot of women keep their kitchen? Half the time its just a storage unit since 95% of the women I know wouldn't cook if their lives depended on it. My old kitchen in my college house used to look like a nuke hit it, but at least my roommates and I used the fuck out of it. We had 4 people in the house and one of us would clean the kitchen every week to keep things from becoming outrageously disgusting.
Pretty happy with it. Lots of counter space. The door goes to my balcony
OK, so judging by the pictures, who is the best cook?
Someone go through and create a psychological profile of each person. We know OP is a smoker (thanks for all the posters who pointed that out /s)
Really interested in reading the creative things people have to say.
Yes, this sounds a̶u̶t̶i̶s̶t̶i̶c̶ fun.
Already know from another post that OP is a 22 year old skinny guy, and from the pic, he smokes and drinks. Not much out except canned food, but there's a lot of spices and a lot of cabinet space, so...I'm gonna say you're an average cook. Like, making supper is no problem, but you probably follow recipes to a 't', don't usually cook lunch, and have a quick breakfast (bagels or toast?).
You...I don't know. You have a lot of cabinet space, so you probably have plenty of ingredients and such, BUT the cabinets could also just be full of canned foods. No microwave, so I'm assuming you cook, but the kitchen is just...completely spotless. It's not just spotless, but everything is laid out so...I don't know the word, but of the few things on the counters everything's either perfectly square with the wall or at a perfect angle with a corner. You cook, but probably not very often, and even then it's mediocre at best.
...you know what, this is too a̶u̶t̶i̶s̶t̶i̶c̶ fun, I can't go on.
Okay. I just have to ask you and /ck/ - I've been to a few homes where the person collects bottles in the same manner.
Is that a Texas thing, or just people in general who drink a lot? I feel like I've missed something here, having been sheltered and all.
Yeah, no... females are just as bad.
I live with three, and every time I come home, there's fucking clutter everywhere.
During the summer, the one girl that didn't go home for break just kept adding dishes to the sink until she ran out of dishes to use. I think she wanted me to wash them.
And one of the previous roommates would leave makeshift apple bongs, cigarettes and beer cans everywhere.
Roommates just suck all around. As soon as I can start building up my account again, I'm out.
It's not much, but it's fine while I'm in uni.

See, that's what I do.
The bottle thing always made me think "College Kid" or "Babby's First Year Out", which was true half the time. The other two people were 25 and 32, though. So I wanted to see how commonplace this was.
