There are some crazy gadgets for your kitchen. I can’t say that I don’t want any of the really ridiculous ones (like funny shaped tea infusers or egg molders). But some gadgets are so ridiculous that I can’t really imagine anyone really wanting them. Feel free to prove me wrong and buy each and every one of them or just read this and wonder why someone decided to produce it.
Mini Kegerator Refrigerator & Draft Beer Dispenser
In case you need more than a 12-pack and less than a case of beer, so you go with a mini keg because it holds 14 beers. Oh, but you have to spend over $100 dollars at least to have something this chill, dude.
Authentic Twinkie Maker
Unless you’re making Twinkies on the reg because you think the world is going to end soon, please don’t spend $30 just to make six Twinkies whenever you feel like it. Do people still even really eat Twinkies?
You can make fresh pancakes at the press of a button for only $3,950! Or, you could man up and take 10 minutes to make them yourself from a box that costs $5 instead. Totally up to you though and I support your decision.
Latte Art Maker
While this item costs less than $35, do you really want to spend 35 dollars just so your latte looks like a cat? Are you even artistic enough to make that happen? If you are, can you give me lessons?
Mini Donut Factory
As a lover of all things mini, $134 dollars seems lofty to satisfy my obsession while also causing me to consume an absurd number of donuts. Because you know if they’re mini, you’re going to eat way more than you should because, you know, they’re mini!
Electric S’mores Maker
This is aesthetically pleasing and all, but we could also return to the pancake maker problem. By that I mean you can also make s’mores the normal way.
Monogrammed Barbecue Branding Iron
This is very personalized, so whoever you give it to can really only personalize their own steak. That means they could also personalize everyone’s steak with their own monogram…Actually, maybe we all know someone who is into themselves enough to really love a present like this.
Taste Enhancing Forks
At first I thought, how very futuristic. And then I thought, but why?
The Authentic Laguiole Champagne Sabre
Don’t worry this product has gone from $299.95 to $199.95. So now you can open champagne with a sabre for only $199 which promises you’ll lose minimal champagne and maximum dignity.
Not only do I not have $25,000 lying around, but something about a robot making my drinks seems way too futuristic that if you got drunk enough, you might try to fight it.
Finger Food Party Plates
Again, I’ll admit these are freaking adorable. However, I can only picture that beautifully tiny sandwich falling off every time you go to sip your drink. Not the most thought out.
Twirling Spaghetti Fork
Another item to help you question the laziness of humanity. But maybe kids who just can’t seem to eat pasta without making a mess might benefit from this? But then what about all those cute photos of babies covered in spaghetti sauce?
Kitchen Art Ham Dogger
This takes hamburger meat and shapes it into a hot dog shape for $15. Is this a good way to prank someone into eating a hamburger? Is this the new hip way to eat hamburgers? How are you going to put the perfect amount of lettuce and tomato on there the way hamburger buns are made to hold things like that? Whose idea was this?
Spaghetti Ice Machine
This makes your ice cream look like spaghetti. Similar to the hamburger turned hot dog, why would you want your ice cream to look like spaghetti? I wouldn’t want my spaghetti to look like ice cream.
