1. Garlic Press

Often a staple in our kitchens, the garlic press disguises itself as an incredibly useful time saver, however it’s just a one trick pony. The same result can easily be achieved by using the very versatile cheese grater or by mincing the garlic cloves with a sharp knife. Sharpenening your knives can be quick and easy if you have the right tools.

2. Microwave

Since the 1950’s, microwaves have helped to innovate how we cook. Unfortunately, due to the nature of how they work, foods cooked in microwaves tend to have a rubbery texture. Studies have also shown that the nutritional value of foods decreases after being “nuked” in a microwave. Why bother using an appliance that ruins the quality of your food when you can prepare quick meals on the stove top?

3. Egg Slicer

Although it is pretty convenient, the egg slicer is just another one function tool. Over time, the wires that do the actual slicing weaken and bend, rendering it useless. Instead, with careful attention, you can use a small knife to slice a hard-boiled egg for your favorite salad.

4. Garlic Peeler

I’m not sure why it was deemed necessary, the garlic peeler has popped up in kitchens all over the country. Growing up in a household of cooks, I was taught to simply take a big knife and lay it across the garlic clove, then with a flat palm, give it a gentle slap to release the peel from it. No fancy tools needed!

5. Apple Corer

I’ve owned a few apple corers and none of them have even worked. They’re usually made of a hard plastic that for some reason can’t even cut through an apple to begin with. I always have to finish the job with a knife anyway, and found that it’s way more efficient than fighting with a silly corer.

6. Rice Cooker

As popular as they are, rice cookers are just another vanity product. It just seems impractical to buy such a specific appliance. If you have a medium-sized pot, you can easily cook rice. All it takes is 1¾ cup of water per cup of rice and 10 to 15 minutes later, you have fluffy, tasty rice!

7. Egg Separator

Until recently, I didn’t even know that egg separators existed. The best tools to use to separate yolks from whites are your own two hands. It still baffles me that someone felt the need to create such a product when all you need are a small bowl and a pair of hands.

8. Bread Machine

The bread machine is another convenience tool. Not only does it mix the dough, it proofs its, kneads it and bakes it. As great as it sounds, it’s just such a waste of money and it takes up a huge chunk of space in the kitchen. Why not invest the extra effort and knead your own bread dough?

9. Spoon Rest

It’s cute and useful, but is a spoon rest a ‘must-have’ in every kitchen? I’ve always gotten by using a paper towel or a small plate to lay my kitchen tools. It’s more of a decorative piece in my opinion.

10. Flavor injector

The flavor injector is another invention that I was surprised to see on the market. Maybe it’s because I’m not a professional chef, but I find that marinating meats in the best way to ‘inject’ flavor. It’s never done me wrong and people haven’t seemed to need such a specialty item in the past.
