    Default What is your most useless kitchen gadget?

    I've got a few, but I guess I have to say my crock pot. I thought I'd use it a lot, and I think I've used it twice, and not in the last two years!

    Deep fat fryer - wedding pressie 17yrs ago - never used.
    Bread maker - used twice - quicker/cheaper to get fresh bread from the local bakery.
    Sodastream
    Electric carving knife - an ordinary sharp knife does a better (and quieter) job.

    Panini maker. My BF made me buy it after his fascination with grilled panini sandwiches from Einstein Bros. Sooooo useless.

    Probably my blender. I only use it for dacquaris once in a blue moon.

    I used to have one of those weird little gadgets that looked like a George Foreman grill (WAY before those existed) where you fold the top over & toast things in the scooped out cavities.

    Like, you could put bread top & bottom, put all kinds of filling in the middle, fold it over & cook. When you opened it, you had 4 little triangle things that were sealed like pierogies. It was kinda neat. I usually put tuna in it.

    I guess the most useless thing I own is a food processor. Some may recall when I first bought the thing a couple of months ago... I realized that it's actually easier to just chop your own food. I do bring it out on occasion, though... I made some great chicken salad with it.

    I use my garlic press all the time....

    A Sodastream is a DIY soda maker. You put water and flavouring in a bottle, put it in the machine, inject some carbondioxide gas and hey presto! You can make lemonade, cola, tonic water etc. All taste FOUL.

    I could not live without my garlic press - and those toastie thingies are what I call jaffles, although somepeople might call it a toasted sandwich maker. I use mine quite a lot for the kids' tuna melts etc.

    Maybe we should start another thread on Kitchen Gadget I Can't Live Without??

    Our food processor. We hardly ever use it; we got it as a wedding gift and we have used it only a few times. I don't need a machine to chop vegetables or grate cheese.

    I love my garlic press! I use it all the time.

    The most useless thing I have in my house is the Presto Burger that keeps getting passed around in my family. It started as an old joke in like, the 80's when my parents gave it to my grandparents. It stayed in the closet there, so my parents grabbed it back one holiday, wrapped it, and gave it to my grandparents again (along with other stuff, of course, it was a joke). Since then it has been passed from family member to family member during the holidays. It has never even been opened.
