What Household Appliance Are You?

If you were a household appliance, what household appliance would you be?

Do you ever feel like you gravitate toward a certain household appliance? For me, it’s got to be the coffeemaker. Blogthings runs on caffeine – no doubt about it. And it just so happens that my favorite non-appliance thing in the kitchen is my tea kettle. There are some appliances that I can live without (like my blender and food processor – used, but rarely so), but if you take away my coffeemaker… well, let’s say you better run!

I think our relationship to household appliances is interesting, because they often show what we value. Of course, it goes without saying that I value caffeine – but more than anything, I think I value productivity and focus. That’s what my coffeemaker gives to me. A few other appliances that I love are my bread maker, slow cooker, and rice cooker. I think I love them so much because I’m big on efficiency and self care. I can set up my dinner early in the day, and after many hours of working hard, I know that something tasty will be waiting for me.

What about you? Do you have certain beloved household appliances that reflect your values? Any quick fix microwave lovers out there? Or are you more of an obsessively clean vacuum type? Take What Household Appliance Are You? to find out which household appliances best suit your personality.

    “You are a vacuum–

    You are meticulous and extremely clean. You don’t like to leave messes lying around. You are unwavering and brave. You do what needs to be done, even if it isn’t popular.

    You tend to be controlling, and you hate leaving anything up to chance. You leave your mark on everything. You trust yourself to know what’s right and what’s wrong. You are willing to go against the tide.”

    Ha, ha, ha. This result makes me laugh because it’s so unbelievable off the mark it can’t be anything but amusing!

    –“You are meticulous and extremely clean.” Ha! Far from it. I do appreciate having clean living space but there is almost always a pile of clothes on my floor and a couple of partially empty glasses of water on my desk. I have a lazy side and it usually comes out when it’s comes to cleaning my living space, lol.

    –“You tend to be controlling, and you hate leaving anything up to chance.” I do have a tendency to want to have some control over what happens in my life but I also love having no idea or control over what happens.

    –“You are willing to go against the tide.” Eh, sometimes. But usually in a quiet way.

    –“You trust yourself to know what’s right and wrong.” Yes on this one. For the most part I trust my judgement.

    –“You are unwavering and brave.” I have definitely been called brave before. Unwavering? Depends on the situation. Sometimes it’s better to bend/yield 😉

    –Vacuuming is also one of my least favorite household chores because it’s loud and you have to keep moving the cord. I much prefer sweeping to vacuuming. My favorite household chore is actually washing (but not drying) the dishes (second would probably be sweeping).

    “You are meticulous and extremely clean. You don’t like to leave messes lying around.”

    This is true in a figurative sense.

    “You are unwavering and brave. You do what needs to be done, even if it isn’t popular.”

    My ideas are often unpopular, but I still try to do what’s best.

    “You tend to be controlling, and you hate leaving anything up to chance. You leave your mark on everything.”

    Oh great, BT thinks I’m a dog.

    “You trust yourself to know what’s right and what’s wrong. You are willing to go against the tide.”

    This is true.
