Alton Brown Reviews Amazon's Worst Kitchen Gadgets

December 14, 2015


This is a video of Alton Brown reviewing some of Amazon's worst 'unitasker' kitchen gadgets. Unitaskers are gadgets created to do only a single job, and usually a job that someone doesn't NEED a gadget to perform. I like Alton Brown because he combines cooking with SCIENCE. He explains what's happening on a molecular level when you're cooking. I think that's fascinating. Like right this second SCIENCE THINGS ARE HAPPENING to my SpaghettiO's in the microwave. Granted I don't understand what, but that's because I'm not that smart and always though it was the light in the microwave that cooked food.

Keep going for the video, and, despite what anybody says, it really is exhilarating watching the egg tube rise out of a Rollie.

Thanks to Shane, who agrees the only two kitchen gadgets you really need are a knife and a fire.

    Do NOT diss the breakfast sandwich maker. I've used it virtually every day for over a year to make easy, healthy breakfast sandwiches.

    He looks tired...Aahhhh! He scared me with those...things.

    How high were the inventors of the Rollie? That's really what I want to know. Because that's the weirdest food need ever.

  • GeneralDisorder

    I'd assume the thought process was something like "how do we market a sex toy as a kitchen gadget?"

    I could be wrong about this.

    how long till they have to amend the instructions to tell people not to put their dick in it?

    Rhett and Link made a video with the Rollie not too long ago on their Youtube show 'Good Mythical Morning', pretty funny.
