Silly Kitchen Gadgets That Make You Laugh Out Loud
Fun and Silly Kitchen Gadgets
In case you didn't know what to get your mother-in-law for her birthday next month, there is a plethora of kitchen tools on the market, some of which I'll bet neither of you even knew she might need!
From the slightly absurd to the totally inane, these items are actually for sale - and must be selling! Leave it to the Internet - you can find just about any crazy thing to buy. Whether you are looking for gag gifts or something funny for a bridal shower, consider this your one-stop-shopping place for hilarious presents.
Who comes up with these kitchen gadgets? They look ridiculous, even slightly obscene! These kitchen gadgets will make you laugh out loud.
Let's go for a tour through the internet market of the strange world of things you must get for your kitchen...
Eatmecrunchy Cereal Bowl
The name is enough to cause peals of laughter. And you cannot read the marketing campaign at the British firm's website that explains in detail "how it works" with a straight face. As they boldly proclaim: Breakfast will never be the same again! I sure wish a simple cereal bowl could change the day's first meal at my house!
Apparently, there is a shelf on which most of your cold cereal will sit, allowing only a small portion to be covered in milk. This ingenious design will keep most of your cereal dry and unsoggy, until you are ready for it to meet its maker... er... milk. Why didn't I think of this?
Robot Coupe French Bread Cutting Machine
The price isn't funny ($3000), but the picture is so phallic, it has to be included. Plus, who needs a bread cutting machine that onlycuts french bread, even if it does slice up to 360 pieces of bread a minute? The French.... they are soooo superior!
Can you imagine the look on your friends' faces when they walk in and see that on your counter? Maybe it is worth the price after all...
Rolling Pin with a Ruler
I can imagine this might be useful at some specialized bakeries (*ahem*), but if my husband found this rolling pin in our kitchen drawer, it might raise eyebrows. The purpose is for the baker to be able to measure the diameter of pie shells, etc. But again, the design allows minds to run amok.
Hey Honey... want to get busy in the kitchen tonight? How about if we whip up a little "dough"?
Who knew that you needed a special tool to slice bananas? You know, they are really so difficult to cut up. Needless to say, this will only set you back about $3 or $4, plus shipping, and then it will sit in your kitchen drawer until you sell it at a deep discount at the next garage sale. Better yet... if you really want one, scour your neighborhood yard sales to see if you can come up with one for a bargain. Or, do like the rest of us, and use a knife. The picture is nice though, right?
Nutcracker (aka Ball Breaker)
OK, so people actually use Nutcrackers to open hard shell nuts. I'm just including this one because of its raunchy design. There are a number of websites at which you can find this charming implement. Butt (wait, did I type butt... whoops) your M-I-L may not be appreciative of this gift. Save this for your close friends or others that will get the joke.
The Ex-Boyfriend Knife Holder
The marketing of this device says it all. Just look at the image to the right. Whoa. Any questions? Just don't leave it on your counter if you have any hope of reconciling! But seriously, this should bring you and your friends a great deal of joy each time you put the knives away. Just realize that (hopefully) you will outgrow the gimmick someday.
