I want to ask a question about kitchen equipment, which is listed as on-topic in the main FAQ. However, I noticed a few equipment questions being closed as off-topic.
How do I know if I my (equipment-related) question is on topic or not?
Most questions about kitchen equipment are on topic. Individual questions are always subject to community standards but we recommend the following guidelines (examples included):
Evaluation and Selection
Care and Maintenance
Installation and Repair
Questions about equipment should not be considered off-topic based solely on the specific type of equipment being discussed. If it is typically found in the kitchen and used to prepare food, it is eligible.
Questions about specific models may be too localized, if very few people own that model or it's sold only in a very small geographic area. But questions about specific manufacturers or models which are widely sold and known are fine. For example, asking about a detail of KitchenAid mixers, which are extremely common in the US, is not much more localized than asking about stand mixers. But asking about your custom-commissioned RoboJetWhizzer 9X47J food processor/spray applicator is too localized.
