I'll start this with my lemon-squeesers:

Up until I was forty I'd always just used the hand and fork method when needing lemon juice. I then inherited a pressed uranium-glass lemon squeeser (and a couple of lemon vedge-squeesers which I've never used) and recently I bought a pair of cheap plastic lemon squeeser-thongs (which I rarely use; I rarely need so much juice that I can't just use the glass-one).

We have a juicer like the glass one in your picture, a hand-held one similar to this, and also an electric one for large-scale juicing tasks. No tongs, though.

Yep, exactly like the one in your picture

Don't think so
a garlic-peeler
presses, but no peeler
a mandolin,
yes, but not nearly so nice as the one in Timby's picture
corn cub peeler/holders,
I think we have some holders, but no peeler
egg-slicer,
there's one somewhere, but it never gets used
cheese slicer,
yes, gets used all the time
tomato cutter,
banana box,
wine thermometer,
no, no, no
