This photo made me chuckle when I saw it. It's a serious coffee geek who devotes an entire countertop to two coffee grinders and a giant espresso machine. But I'm also not passing judgement: I'm sure many of us have our own version of this. What's it for you? Your KitchenAid mixer that takes up all available space by the stove? Your toaster oven that necessitated buying a separate workspace cart? How much space are you willing to give up for your favorite tools and appliances?

Tell us your dirty little indulgences and what the limits are in your kitchen. We want to know why it's worth it to give up precious space for that beloved appliance!
