Toronto Gets a Library For Kitchen Appliances

There are a lot of amazing kitchen gadgets out there. If you tried to write them all down, you'd get a hand cramp somewhere around sous vide cooker or silly-shaped pancake mold. This is great for cooking enthusiasts. Variety is the spice of life, after all. This is not so great for people with smaller than average kitchens. Where do you put all of that stuff? That's where this new library of kitchen appliances comes in.

Opened in Toronto, the Kitchen Library works just like a regular library. You take stuff out and return it by a certain date. Instead of books, however, this library stocks only kitchen gadgets. All told, it features over 100 different appliances, from expensive juicers to more niche items like chocolate fountains. Fifty bucks gets you unlimited access to all of these goodies for a full year, so long as you return them, clean as a whistle, by the specified time.

The idea has proven to be extremely successful, with the creator soon moving the library to a bigger location and beginning to offer monthly memberships.
