Yes it’s true; I can stand in the middle of my kitchen and touch the stove with my right hand and the sink, on the other side of the room, with my left hand.
I am counter space challenged. The ability to own a dishwasher is an impossibility. And please, don't even try to cook when someone else is in the kitchen. I gives a whole new meaning to the term togetherness.
I guess the main benefit of a small kitchen is that everything is close by.
I have made room on my limited counter space for my Kitchen Aid Mixer.
If this were not out, it would never get used because of the weight.
I also have my Crockpot on the counter. This I use almost weekly.
My blender and food processor have found a home under my sink, still handy but not taking up space.
One thing that I have found that is greatly beneficial is a pair of glass cutting boards that fit over my stove burners to make extra counter space.
I found these on Amazon and they can be used when the oven is on.
This helps when I am baking.
I must admit that I am envious of cooks with large kitchens, but I have learned to adapt.
Cookies and pie crust are rolled out on my dining room table. A cutting board across the sink can provide extra prep space.
If you share the same affliction, please share your small kitchen survival tips.
