Enter The Kitchen Vote, a website dedicated entirely to thumbsing up or down on "a daily ballot on kitchen renovations, kitchen products, kitchen appliances, cooking products and food storage." Simple enough...... and like a simple, unadorned potato chip, it's sort of addictive. You can breeze through the front page in under thirty seconds (try digesting The Kitchn's front page in that time!) and come out the other side with some new ideas for your kitchen.
Think of it as a perpetual "hot or not" for kitchen stuff, with a tendency toward the fantasy with most of its design objects appearing to be high-dollar and its kitchens custom. Most of what the editor posts I find appealing, so it's become a go-to place for pretty kitchens and fun tabletop items and I don't find myself continually thumbsing down things.My only complaint is that it's not always easy to trace the source of the design. By the time I'd found these beautiful Frances Palmer bowls, I had opened another window, Googled my way to Palmer's site and got ensconced in a fantasy world of pottery design, thus ending my click-a-thon at The Kitchen Vote. For the sake of time management, that may be a good thing after all.
