    #8 I wasn't aware eggs were so hard to crack

    • Augustus

      woah now! Easy crackah!

      Yhea, but then again; you're probably not retarded. 🙂

      What I'm saying is that its pretty fking fail if you need this to crack an egg.

    • dextuuur

      actually very useful for separating whites, makes it so much faster especially if you have to do lots of eggs. Huge time saver

      • FACE!

        how, it breaks eggs open, its not an egg separator.

        And I don't see how it makes it faster, it adds an extra step by having to put the egg in the device, if anything it slows it all down.

        • DeRaNgEd

          look what you get for free, its a egg separator…..

      • SenorWilson

        My hand can separate whites like a pro. Argument invalid.

    • Bear on Stilts

      It takes a while but you get the information you want out of them eventually.

    • some bloke

      I know what you mean! But remember that we are not all the target demographic – older people with arthritis etc can find these things really helpful.

    • LC

      i suck at cracking eggs, i am not ashamed to admit it! ok well yeah maybe i am a little bit…

    • Frank

      $20 says you still end up pinking pieces of shell out of your food.

      • Reader#1,726

        Pay up sucka, I have cracked many eggs with this thing and not one bit of shell.

    • Reader#1,726

      I have one of these and you people are soooo wrong! This thing works awesomely. There are never any pieces of shell in the eggs and you can just drop the shell into the trash. You never drip egg whites down the side of the bowl/pan or on your hands.

    #14 knows her place!

  • sshuggi

    #23 should go in a nostalgia post. I remember those things from when I was a kid… and how I would always end up cutting a finger.

    • The_Dood

      Same with #19. Look at how old that Pepsi is.

    • https://www.facebook.com/macjohnmcc John McCormick

      They work but its easy to damage the blade it uses.

  • Stan_Dalone

    #14 the woman in the pic is too easy to confuse

  • leon

    #9 isn't exactly new.

    • Stan_Dalone

      is an 18th century invention, so yes Leon it isn't new lol according to wilipedia

      • Dolfan0925

        Ya pretty much everything else was either awesomely new or gimmicky or something. We were pretty poor growing up and had one of these.

        • Masschine

          It's the Apple version. Look it's pretty and it costs way to @#$!ing much it must be better.

  • DutchChiveFan

    #9 got it, mum's got one as well. like #16 though

    • https://www.facebook.com/macjohnmcc John McCormick

      The egg slicer works well. I have this particular one.

  • (Some pretentious name)

    These are neat but most completely unecessary which is why they’re not mass produced. Having a few would be cool but the fruit slicers idk. By the time you racked up more than two you would realize a knife is far more practical.

  • xXbeermonkeyXx

    #13 is probably the stupidest thing ive ever seen

    • turbodude

      Would be cool for handicapped folks that are wheelchair bound…

    • James

      if you worked in a restaurant and that was your job. you would be so, so happy

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100001828584414 Brandon Thomas

      Umm not stupid if you have mashed tators all the time like my family does. That thing is awesome.

    • Cook Cook

      It's overkill for making bachelor-chow, but if you've got a bunch of family or friends coming over it can save a ton of time.

  • yay

    #21 mmm…melted wire flavored steaks..

    • Mouse209

      I'd rather spend the money on a laser thermometer.

      • dbag

        I'd rather be a man and know how to cook a steak…without a thermometer.

    • MonkeyMadness

      That's what I was thinking too.

    • Holmespump

      "Johnson, Navin R – sounds like a typical bastard."

      • The Pict

        Sounds more like someone is a fan of Steve Martin's "The Jerk". It's rated R though, so you won't be able to watch it until your mommy says it's OK.

        • Irony Is Dead

          Um, you do realize that Holmespump is actually *quoting* "The Jerk," right? Maybe if your mother let's you watch it again, you'll realize you're an ass….

    • Jack_LeMac

      This kinda looks like it could be in one of those cracked photoshop contests

  • renlok

    All of these look really really pointless and unnecessary

    • Former employee

      you can buy almost all of those things at bed bath and beyond.

  • Pinche Manny

    #1 i really want that actually lol
    that would be great here in my dorm…..

    • turbodude

      Can it scan documents too ?…..now THAT would be handy !

      • Pinche Manny

        yea but at the moment i'm hungry!!!!! stomach first 😉

    • Underbaker

      Ummm I burned my homework, you see I thought it was a scanner…

  • Pinche Manny

    where can i get #1????

    • newscot

      How is this any better than a regular toaster? It looks like it'd be a lot slower since it only cooks a couple centimeters of the bread at a time.

      • MonkeyPoxx

        ^ this guy. centimeters.. who uses the metric system??

        • TitoRigatoni

          Smart people. Smart people use the metric system.

  • woolanoow

    #2, #5, #6 and #10 – are really useful and cool things!

    • http://twitter.com/AstragaliUSA @AstragaliUSA

      Seems to me that #5 is only useful if you're pouring cold liquids. Otherwise, you're going to at least hurt – if not burn – your ring finger on the spout if you use both sides of the teapot, as was done in the picture.

      • Max

        it wouldn't be that bad. it would be warm but not enough really hurt

    • Max

      i have #10. i love them ❤

    • hotdogneck

      I have the same list, but no teapot and also i want #23 and #24

      It is so hard to guess on spaghetti quantity!!!!

    • Frank

      WTF is useful about #2?

      • doog

        i know bout 2 other good uses for this one not involving a lemon rofl.. to easy

  • Anonymous

    Where can I get number 18?

  • saucypants

    #19 This is especially stupid. Compounded by the Pepsi Twist.

    • Mouse209

      It never worked. It dispenses 3 gallons of useless foam and half a liter of sugar water.

      • MonkeyMadness

        And that's why you never shake the bottle.

    • Charlie_Cheen

      How does it dispense more than half the bottle? Does the carbonation pressurize it enough to get past the point where the spout is?

  • NateyTheGreaty

    I think most of these are unnecessary products that just fuel laziness or are a complete waste of money, but #6 is actually practical, I like it.

    • FACE!

      #20 is pretty damn useful

  • http://thechive.com/ Paula_

    THIS is the kind of gadget I'm looking for in my kitchen:
    <img src="http://www.angelbodywear.com/Images/Products/Sexy-Chef-Costume.jpg"/>Hugs,
    – the one you love to hate

    • FACE!

      It's 3:25 and she's still not made any sandwiches, and that spoon won't be any good at making the sandwiches or opening beer.

    • joe

      That better not be a guy

      • MonkeyMadness

        With Chive, you never know.

        • http://thechive.com/ Paula_

          Is not of Chive, is of me, the love of your imaginary girlfriend.

          – the one you love to hate

          • ibillionserved

            ok John

    • michaeledmondsjr

      this is why i've never had a problem with the wonderful miss Paula

      • http://thechive.com/ Paula_

        So… you in to spatulas too?

        – the one you love to hate

        • michaeledmondsjr

          they're second only to the wisk!

          • Cook Cook

            More of a potato masher guy myself…

  • MonkeyMadness

    #17 For people too damn lazy to slice their bananas the regular way.

    • StaticFX

      no sheite!!! holy lazy batman!

    • Dr_StrangePants

      for regular people, yes it is.
      But….for an ice cream shop, it would make sense

      • MonkeyMadness

        I s'pose you have a point there. 😉

    • Dani

      Or for kids too young to use a knife safely

  • UPSgrrrL88

    #8 have we really become this lazy?

    • Dr_StrangePants

      I think it would be more trouble trying to load the egg in that thing
      then just cracking that bitch on the rim of the frying pan

      • MonkeyMadness

        No kidding! You could probably crack 3-5 eggs by the time you got that loaded and cracking.

        • StuckupWhore

          and cooked especially if it izs done by a short order cook

      • Reader#1,726

        You are wrong, that thing works great! Where did you get your degree anyway?

  • AssClown

    #4 I'm sorry to inform you, but your man card has expired upon purchasing this item.

    • MonkeyMadness

      "Sir, please hand in your nuts on your way out."

    • HJRO99

      perhaps it was invented so the woman didn't bother the man whilst the game was on when she was making sandwichees.

    • Tomas

      I have one of these. Works great. When you have arthritis or carpal tunnel it is a wonderful device. 😉

  • Deadalready

    I can't help but feel this is more a post for the berry

  • SockMoney17

    #14. She needs to be apply to other Chive categories

  • teh_shard

    #11 Yeah… I totally need one of those… for measuring out my rocks… salt… yeah rock salt… that's the ticket!

    • Anon

      You sure you aren't talking about the designer drug of choice now – bath salts?

  • anguish

    I totally need #6.. As someone who chops many veggies, that would be invaluable.
