@David: "tasón" is rather "tazón" :)

I will add some more:

General
Horno de microondas (el) - microwave oven
Licuadora (la) (essential in a Mexican kitchen) - blender
Batidora (la) - mixer
Procesador de alimentos (el) - Food processor
Alacena (la) - cupboard
Fregadero (el) - kitchen sink

I have a confusion on translation for "exprimidor de jugos" (the one for squeezing oranges) and "extractor de jugos" (the one for extracting juice of all kinds of fruits and vegetables). Is there a difference between juicer and juice extractor?


Utensilios - Utensils
Salero (el) - salt shaker
Pimentero (el) - pepper grinder
Azucarera (la) - sugar bowl
Olla express/olla de presión (la) - pressure cooker (?)
Olla (la) - cooking pot (?)
Vajilla (la) - the dishes
Batería de cocina (la) - cooking set
Coladera (la)/colador (el) - strainer

Ingredientes - Ingredients
Azúcar (el/la) - sugar
Especias (las) - spices
Ajo (el) - garlic
Cebolla (la) - onion
Cilantro (el) - coriander
Perejil (el) - parsley
Apio (el) - celery
Clavo (el) - clove
Comino (el) - cummin
Canela (la) - cinnamon


I might make another list as I see more items in my kitchen after dinner tonight. ;)

Thank you for the corrections and the additions. Great work!

Edit:

exprimidor = juicer, hand juicer, citrus juicer, citrus press. (This would be a hand-powered juicer where you insert half an orange and press down on a handle to squeeze it OR the small dome-shaped juicer that you place over a jar and press half an orange onto while turning the orange)

extractor = juicer, electric juicer (this would be an appliance with spinning blades that you can feed any fruit or vegetable into to grind it up and extract the juice.)

despensa - pantry
campana- gas extractor
encimera- counter

We don't say either "tasa" or "tasón", but "taza" and "tazón". :)

AngelicaDeAlquezar August 04, 2009 01:16 PM

Found a few more:

General
Escurridor (el) - dish rack
Gabinete (el) - cabinet
Tostador (el) - toaster
Electrodomésticos (los) - kitchen appliances
Antecomedor (el) - table and chairs set in the kitchen


One more confusion here with "las llaves del agua": should I use "tap" or "faucet"?


Utensilios - Utensils

Rallador (el) - grater
Cubiertos (los) - forks, spoons and knives set
Cascanueces (el) - nutcracker

I know despensa as a box of basic (staple) foods and ingredients. Is this another meaning?

What is this used for? I've never heard of a gas extractor to be honest.

I would say faucet is more common, but both can be used.

@David: Thank you, I will take note about them.

La campana (o campana extractora) está encima de la estufa para evitar que la cocina se llene de humo o de olores.

"Despensa" is also the cupboard to store those foods and ingredients. I've seen pictures of "pantry" and they are exactly what the "despensa" would be.

Ok, I've updated the page. Thanks for the info.

Oven hood/oven vent

Exprimidor de limones needs a gender.

El refri, el refrigerador, la refrigeradora, el frigorífico, la nevera, el helador y la heladora - in which countries are these terms used, and which is most frequently used?

Missing:
grill - la parrilla
griddle - la plancha
waffle iron - la gofrera
dishwasher - el lavaplatos
toaster - la tostadora, el tostador
toaster oven - el horno tostador
coffee maker - la cafetera, la máquina de café
