I have a basket with napkins and I would guess dust.
Nothing. At least nothing that I know of. It’s built into a cabinet.
Only dust. Which couldn't be seen by anyone not over 6' tall - but thank you for the reminder, I need to get out a step stool and clean up there ;0)
I store wire racks there that I use for cooling bread, cookies, cakes, etc. I used to store a cutting board there, but I have moved it to a more accessible location.
Dust and a Canada Goose nutcracker
Mostly dust and a salad spinner.
Absolutely nothing...I hate things on top and it is too tall to be handy anyway. (not even dust...just cleaned. ;)
We placed an old wine rack on top of the fridge and use it to hold our boxes of aluminum foil, wax paper, glad wrap etc.
I would have to climb to the second step of the kitchen stool to even clean it. I am actually a reader of instruction books and the one that came with my frig stated not to put anything on the top. I do not remember why but some do become warm on the top.
The refrigeration unit is on top of our built-in GE Monogram. I hope it keeps running a little longer. It will be 20 this fall.
Same as always. We have nesting doors, behind which is a TV that DH uses every a.m. to watch the news while he has breakfast at the island.
Dust of course! I can never keep up with it 🙄
And a jug of water, some flour, some oats & 2 tins: 1 empty, 1 full of homemade cracker bread.
2 vases with artificial flowers, a box of Kleenex, a large jar with coins, 2 decorative tin cans and a picture frame with my first granddaughter’s picture.
I'm too short to see so I took a picture. Just like having a periscope!
So let's see, in the basket that's Donkey tortilla chips, and one, no, two bags of Stacy's Naked Pita Chips.
In the cupboard in the left door are ice cube trays (we use them to freeze broth), a mai tai jug from Bob Chinn's Seafood (good for when we used to make juice from concentrate or Kool Aid.
There might be something behind the right door but I don't feel like hauling a chair over and climbing up to look. Mainly because I'll see how dusty it is and want to clean it. Well, that's not true, I'll feel guilty because I DON'T want to clean it. Then I'll be mad at myself for not cleaning it earlier, and for showing you all a dirty refrigerator top when I know yours are all gleaming like new. Lol
Just a large glass cutting board which DH uses to filet fish.
Nothing on top since there are cabinets surrounding it.
Nothing except perhaps dust.
Nothing. And it isn't within a cabinet. Oh, possibly dust but I do run the Swiffer duster over it occasionally.
Empty paper ice cream tub, peanut butter bottle containing a bit of oatmeal, soup can holding some bacon grease.
dust. and it probably fur on it...
With no built-in cabinets in a small kitchen in a small house, you better believe we use the top of our refrigerator. It holds plastic containers (mostly from yogurt & ice cream), colanders, large plastic bowls, and ceramic canisters of flour, sugar, tea, and powdered milk. I'll just say there is no dust up there. It is my job to clean it up as somebody else here cannot see it accumulating. So yeah, no dust. You believe me, right?
Good luck on reaching that 20 years, chisue. We think we must have bought ours on the tail end of the era when "they made 'em like they used to make 'em," as ours is 28 years old and was bottom of the line at the time.
Nothing except maybe some dust.
an empty egg carton that I will take back to my neighbor when I get eggs. And dust
Usually there is just dust and a shoebox that my dh keeps special things in. I redecorated the top of my cabinets a while back and so there is still a turkey soup tureen that I'm not sure what to do with.
I keep a large electric griddle for pancakes, bacon, eggs. I have a small basket with a few bottles of pills we take daily.
Nothing on the fridge in the office in the barn. Nothing on the one in here....except sometimes a cat.
A cabinet with retracting doors which houses the TV.
Nothing except a slab of granite. It’s built in under the counter.
A reproduction old style hand crank coffee grinder. A malachite green soapstone mortar and pestle. A metal thingie my brother gave me, made of a fused fork, knife, spoon, nuts and bolts.. to resemble a hungry monster. Dust.
I have a clear container of "sea glass" layered light to dark, green. DH has what ever he piles there...wrenches/checks headed to the bank/electronic fly swatter. Flat surfaces are not safe to have with that man about!! He's tall so that's eye level for him.
Almost always there is a small collection of containers that need to be returned to daughter for a fill up of more of the wonderful, delicious food she and housemate Connie prepare and fill my freezer with. Today I see 3 there, one that contained a quart of Lasagna Soup, one cabbage rolls, and one pot roast with potatoes, carrots and gravy. We eat well here!
Dust, an empty basket that bags of chips are usually stored in, and a large, dusty Emile Henry Dutch oven that is rarely ever used.
A frisbee, I have no idea why.
Currently empty, occasionally one of the kitties will snooze up there.
A fire extinguisher, a small set of tools (screwdrivers, pliers), and a lunchbox.
A 24" deep cabinet. There would be room to stick something flattish, like ice cube trays or a cooling rack, if I didn't have room in that cabinet. I wipe the top when I do my weekly (or so) wipe down of the cabinets so I will say "no dust".
a cabinet! yay, no dust and grime
I have a cabinet as well, with one slide-out trays. Love it because it's very usable. Thanks, Hormoz!
A couple of snake plants in ironstone pitchers in front. Along side is an old shallow bowl I sometimes put under plants when watering, so they can soak water from bottom, a stapler and tape dispenser, and a 3 hole punch. All old, at least 2nd generation. Even the plants came in a Welcome Baby planter. Baby is 51 y/o. And, yes, dust.
I have a large electric griddle stored on top of mine too, it very rarely gets used.
A pretty bowl my sister recently sent to me. It was too nice to hide in the cupboard (also not enough room) so it's on the fridge where I can especially enjoy it and have it conveniently at hand when I want to use it.
shortbread cookies, some gulf wax and a package of jar flats and rings
The fire extinguisher and dust. When my DH comes home his wallet and keys end up on there as well. I think it's time for me to dust. We try not to keep things on the fridge because we were also told not to. But having the fire extinguisher close at hand is important enough to me to risk it.
My teapot and a box of kleenex
