Welcome to the world of kitchen futility. You’ve ceased the day, you’ve gone out and found that must have kitchen gadget that you think will save your life, save you time, cut down on the cleaning and faff that occurs on a daily basis when you’re in your beloved kitchen abode. You were wrong. You were always going to be wrong, but you lived in hope of being wright. We’ve all been there. The Eatosi office has been there.
To save you from purchasing extra, unnecessary utensils, we’ve found five kitchen items you will undoubtedly want, but never, ever, ever need.
1) A Pouring Measuring Jug
Looks cool doesn’t it? Looks really handy. Looks like you’ll never spill any more batter when transferring your mix to a tray. We guarantee it won’t. We also bet that you will have trouble cleaning the thing. What ever happened to a steady hand and the ability to use a ladle?
2) A Corn On The Cob Stripper
“I’m having difficulty eating this corn on the cob. Do we have that corn on the cob stripper” Said no one ever! Whatever happened to using your hands and teeth? Unless you are wearing dentures, you have no viable excuse to spend money on this. Enjoy your teeth, cherish there awesome power to eating corn and generally other foods.
3) A Cheese Curler
You have a dinner party. It comes to the time old adage, “cheese and biscuits or pudding, or both, but in which order?” You’re left wondering how you should serve your cheese. A simple cheese biscuit won’t do. No no, you need to slam a block of the pasteurised stuff on a nail style board and then pass a blade worthy of 16th Century France to curl, yes curl, your dairy delight.
4) Egg Separator and Beater In One
Baking a cake? Making an omelette? Ever been left in that horrible compromising situation where you need to separate your egg yolks from your egg whites? Well, here’s a beater that does that for you. You could always do it with two egg shells, use your hands or just be really careful if you need a yolk.
5) A Bicycle Pizza Cutter
Everyone likes Pizza. Everyone! Most like bikes. Most will never consider riding a bike and eating pizza at the same time; in as much as no one will consider cutting up their favourite slice of the fine stuff with a pizza cutter shaped like a bicycle. Seriously, you need purchase, applied weight to the rhythmic nature of slicing; this is serious business!
