My other list - Dad's Kitchen - Meals Made of Love Edition, has everything you truly need to cook. However, there are some appliances that, while not mandatory, do make cooking nicer in many ways.
I have never been disappointed with Kitchen Aid. If you have to choose between a KA and something else, go with the Kitchen Aid.
You don't need most appliances. You just don't. But I admit I love some. Those that I do are on the list.
