10 Ridiculous Kitchen Gadgets
I love watching infomercials because they are a reminder of how complicated our lives have become. They leave me wondering how humanity has survived without such useful inventions as the battery-powered battery charger and the bottom wiper? For this post, I am specifically focusing on the gadgets that were designed with the intention of making our lives easier in the kitchen.
Octodog Hot Dog Shaper
If you are not skilled with a knife, the Octodog will help you squish a tube of subpar porker parts into a shape resembling an octopus.
Spaghetti Ice Cream Maker
If 8-legged frankfurters do not persuade your kid to eat, surely transforming ice cream into the shape of spaghetti, lasagna or asparagus will do the trick. The Spaghetti Ice Cream Maker, which appears to be a re-branded pasta maker, will disguise your cold sweets to appear hot and savory.
Twirling Spaghetti Fork
Hog Wild, the makers of the Moo Mixer, have come up with a solution for the strenuous work that is required to eat spaghetti.
Please note: To install the batteries, you will have to unscrew the lid from the battery compartment with a twirling motion. If this task is cumbersome for you, you may need to enlist the help of a friend.
Safely transport your banana in this phallic plastic carrying case. From the banana guard website:
Remarkably this device fits over 90% of commercially available bananas. How? Highly curved bananas can be straightened slightly to fit into upper curve and very straight bananas can be bent ever so slightly to fit into the mold.
Just remember to eat the banana quickly after smooshing it in the case because it is likely to bruise.
Battery Powered Flour Sifter
For those of you who cannot be bothered with turning a crank, but are okay removing the batteries come cleaning time, the battery powered flour sifter is sure to make your life easier.
In-The-Shell Electric Egg Scrambler
Let's face it, whipping an egg is hard work, so the folks at Ronco have introduced an Electric In-The-Egg Scrambler. At first, I didn't understand how this product worked, but this video explained it all. If you have trouble getting the whipped egg to drool out the hole, the next tool is for you.
Mechanical Egg Cracker
If you have the patience to clean this contraption, but cracking an egg is a real nuisance for you, then you will love this Egg Cracker.
Handy Peel Instant Peel Gloves
The days of peeling veggies will be far behind you if you purchase these easy-to-clean spud exfoliators.
The Magic Bullet
This simple, 21-piece, single serve blender contraption, will certainly make your life easier. The magic bullet "does ANY job in 10 seconds or less," and only costs $99.
Solid Flavor Injector
For four easy payments of $39.95, you can get the solid food injector, which will save your fingers from the labor of pushing a garlic clove into meat.
