If you don't have a creme brulee blowtorch, or a giant bread maker at hand when you want one, and if you live in Toronto, you can borrow same from The Kitchen Library.
Via NPR: "The Toronto-based nonprofit startup was created by 30-year-old Dayna Boyer, a Canadian foodie who was frustrated with her small kitchen. "As someone who loves to cook and lives in a tiny apartment in Toronto, I definitely didn't have space for the appliances I wanted," she says.
"I admit I started The Kitchen Library because of a juicer. I couldn't justify spending $300 on one," she wrote on her blog."
