Yeah I would definately need my salad spinner. The mrs likes her lettuce leaves dry when dressed.
I have like 3 rice cookers, but I think I've used one once. People keep assuming I need one I think because they don't see me use one? It's just so much easier to me to grab a pot and a lid, and that stuff doesn't take up "extra" room. Same with toaster oven, I just never got used to using one, I have a broiler in my oven.
