Gadget minimalists?

Am I the only gadget minimalist?

Well... I am not exactly a MINIMALIST. I have a nice KitchenAid stand mixer, and a blender...

However, I have drawn a line in the sand and refuse to buy a food processor, a bunch of pots and pans that have only one purpose (eyeing my tart pan and considering freecycle), an ice cream maker, and numerous other things which take up a lot of space and cost a lot of money.

I don't think there's anything wrong with owning those things... but it seems that almost anything that can be done in, for instance, a food processor can be done with something I already have (even if it's a manual process, like pounding cookies into cookie crumbs).

If it takes me more time or work to make things because of the lack of gadgets, that's all the better - I cook because I love it, so spending less time on it is not always my priority. :)

Am I the only one?
