Cool Inventions Your Kitchen Doesn’t Need

Cool Inventions Your Kitchen Doesn’t Need


– [Narrator] Thanks to technology, the pace of modern
inventions is breathtaking, leaving many of us in awe and thinking, “What will they think of next?” Unfortunately, some do the exact opposite, and instead make us think, “What the heck were they thinking?” The kitchen isn’t immune
to such bizarre gimmickry. Brace yourself for the most useless kitchen gadgets ever made. (electronic music) Number 10. Butter spreaders. According to the folks at Norpro, the Butter Spreader
won’t dirty your knife, butter dish, or hands. What they don’t explain is
how you stick the butter into the Butter Spreader without dirtying something else like your fingers. Clearly this isn’t a problem
for some people though, because there seems to be a demand for overly complicated devices like this. Just ask Geraint Krumpe
of Y Line Product Design, who came up with The Butter Boss. He raised money for it on Kickstarter, asking for pledges of
at least 16 U.S. dollars so he could get it onto the market. Given that it’s now selling
on Amazon, he succeeded. I just don’t understand why. Another gadget guaranteed
to make a mess of butter is the Max Space Butter Mill, which gets mixed reviews on Amazon. The resulting butter
ribbon apparently sticks to the dispenser, so you have
to cut it off with a knife. If not, and because it uses compression, it’ll keep dispensing unless
you pull the plunger back up. But if you’re not
careful when you do that, it’ll come out the back. Why not just use a good
old fashioned butter knife? Inventions for Market have invented yet another gadget
designed to mess butter up for the market with their One
Click Stick Butter Cutter, equipped with a Stainless Steel Blade. According to their
Amazon reviews, however, it’s wieldy, hard to replace the butter, and the butter had better be cold or you end up with a gloopy mess. Since there’s clearly a market for useless spreading products
that make a ton of mess, let me introduce Cuisipro’s Peanut Butter and Jelly Spreader. You’re supposed to take what’s essentially a lollipop stick with
different colored ends, dip one end into peanut
butter, the other into jelly, and enjoy getting both on your wrist. Number nine. Pasta items. If you’re wondering how
they could possibly reinvent the spaghetti fork, then wonder no more. How about a battery-powered fork that twists pasta for
you so you don’t have to suffer from, uh, wrist strain? The folks at Hog Wild
market their Spaghetti Forks as unique and innovative children’s toys, but given how lazy some people are, I wouldn’t be surprised if
they actually use this to eat. Another take on spaghetti tools is Joseph Joseph’s stylish,
technically innovative, and award-winning Spaghetti Measure. A sophisticated device that lets you know exactly how much pasta to serve without wasting a single stick. Or you could take a
regular spaghetti spoon, the ones with a hole in
the middle called sporks. If your pre-cooked pasta
can fit in that hole, that’s good for one serving. To measure two servings
or more, use your head. Number eight. Banana slicers. Not sure why people need special tools other than knives to cut bananas with, but some apparently do. Introducing the Chefn 27465
Bananza Banana Slicer, which can cut perfectly measured banana slices for you into segments. For those too impatient with segments and want the entire banana
cut into slices in one go, there’s the Hutzler 571 Banana Slicer. Number seven. Pizza items. Can’t stand using different items to cut pizza and pick it up with? Then try Dreamfarm’s Scizza. It’s a scissor with a thin
spatula on the lower blade which lets you cut a slice
of pizza and pick it up. Now that you have your pizza slice, how about another useless gadget that lets you cut it up
into even smaller pieces? Introducing the Pizza Fork, a fork with a built-in
traditional pizza slicer. Do please note the thoughtful,
yet elegant mouth guard that keeps the slicer from slicing you when you finally put that
morsel into your mouth. Hopefully, you’ll remember
that slicer’s there when you wash the dishes. And don’t you just hate
the repetitive motion involved in chopping up herbs and spices? Well, thanks to these
herb scissors from RSVP, knives have become so last year. Although it comes with a special brush to remove herbs from between the blades, it must be a pain to clean. I’d rather have a Rösle’s Pizza Wheel. Never mind the pizza, the
thing’s simply genius! Even became a nominee for the
German Design Award, it did. Since Germans aren’t exactly
famous for their cuisine, you have to admit, they make
up for it in impressive ways. Finger Forks from Drink Stuff
is another impressive item. Unlike the Pizza Wheel, though,
it’s absolutely useless, but I do think it’s pretty cute. If you’ve ever had Spanish
finger foods called tapas, they’re actually quite useful. Otherwise, just stick with
a traditional dessert fork if you want tines that small. Number six. Fork and knife chopsticks. Since Chinese and Japanese cuisines don’t usually involve cutting up meat and vegetables into bite-sized portions, this next invention is completely bonkers. Fork and Knife Chopsticks from VAT19. Guaranteed to make you look stupid. And then there’s Chindōgu, the Japanese art of inventing something completely useless, usually as a gag. If you’re ever tired of blowing
on noodles to cool them, use the Portable Ramen Fan. Admittedly, it looks kind of
heavy, but that’s the point. For those who prefer a
more sophisticated design, there’s the USB-chargeable
Noodle Cooler from YDI, which you have to admit
is far better looking. Admittedly, there’s no fan
guard, so watch those fingers. But at least you look more stylish! If you want to look even
more stylish and stupid, then dip your cookies into
tea or milk with the Dipr, the ultimate cookie spoon. Not only is it completely useless, but it only works on Oreos and other similarly designed cookies. Number five. StemGem Strawberry Huller. This one has to be a Chindōgu, because I can’t remember a time when strawberry stems were hard to remove. When almost ripe, they
practically come off on their own. So why StemGem bothered to make the Strawberry Huller is beyond me. By contrast, this classic apple peeler and corer from Williams
Sonoma is a perfect example of how people back then knew their stuff. Nothing fancy, no batteries needed, and the result is something
useful that does its job. Number four. Just Crunch Cereal Bowl Fed up with soggy cereal in the morning? Well you don’t have to
put up with that anymore. ‘Cause we’ve got the Just
Crunch Cereal Bowl from Vat19. Simply put cereal on one
side and milk on the other. Or you can put cereal in
a bowl you already have and milk into another
bowl you already have. To pour your milk, don’t forget to use Kitchen Stuff Plus’
Leche Milk Carton Holder. Simply stick a one liter
carton of milk or juice in it, lift that carton with the
carton holder, and pour. Granted, it has a lovely handle grip on the side for easy lifting, but how hard is it to lift a
one liter carton of liquid? If you hate the sight of
milk or juice cartons, why not just pour it into a pitcher? And if lifting just
really isn’t your thing, there’s Roll n’ Pour. I can see how it’s useful
for those too young, too old, or too infirm to lift and pour big jugs of liquid by themselves. But if you like cold
orange juice, for example, how are you gonna fit that into a fridge? And unless you have people around to put the jug into the roller for you, it’s such a waste of space. Number three. EggCuber. Don’t you just hate the way
eggs roll over the place? Fortunately for you,
there’s the Egg Cuber! Simply cook your egg
till it’s hard-boiled, peel it while still piping hot, stick it in till it cools, and voila! It doesn’t change the flavor in any way, so not sure what the big deal is. And what about those
strangely shaped eggs? Well, the Japanese company Dream Land has their Boiled Eggs
Decorator A-20007 series, meaning they have loads of
shapes you can deform eggs into. Never settle for oval-shaped eggs again! I get how this could be a
hit at fancy restaurants, but it’s too much trouble for home use. Another thing that could
work for a restaurant is the Golden Goose Egg
Scrambler from Vat 19. Simply stick the egg in the pouch, pull the strings a few times, cook, and you’ve got a scrambled
egg in its shell. Granted, you have to break
the shell open to eat it. Or you could just break the
shell open in the first place, scramble it with a fork then cook it. Okay, I do admit though. I kinda like this one. On the topic of useless egg products, why not traumatize your child for life with this monstrosity? The Fred EGG-A-MATIC Hard Boiled Egg Mold will mold your hardboiled
egg in the shape of a skull so they can fantasize
about eating its brains. The only advantage to this
is that it’s a lot easier and quicker to use than
the one by Dream Land. Now for the final egg gadget. If you like grossing kids out, there’s also the Bogey Man Egg Separator. Stick eggs in, and the
yolks sink to the bottom, letting the whites ooze out the nose. Except for the unfortunate imagery, I kind of like this one, though
I’m fine with a regular cup. Number two. Handheld toasters. This handheld portable toaster by Korean designer Been Kim looks cool. Simply rub it on one side
of your bread like an iron. As your bread toasts,
vines and butterflies appear on the knife, meaning
it’ll take some time. And that’s just for one side. This isn’t something you’ll want if you like to multi-task
or if you’re in a hurry. Useless, true, but very beautiful. Equally useless but far less beautiful is the FurzoToasto by
British inventor Colin Furze. Furze has a lot of time on his hands, apparently,
because after watching “The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy,” he developed an obsession. Making toast with a lightsaber. He didn’t succeed, but he did manage a saw that lets you toast
bread while cutting it. Or you can scrape the
bread to toast one side, just like Kim’s invention,
only bigger and uglier. Number one. The Exhaust Burger. An even more useless
invention comes from Iran. Roohollah Merrikhpour came
up with a burger cooker you stick on your car’s tailpipe. Fumes are supposed to go out the exhaust, while the heat cooks the
burger in its compartment. And bon apetit! Just be sure to stop every once in a while so you don’t
overcook the thing, especially since there are no gauges or dials to tell you when it’s done. A far less sophisticated, but potentially more useful gadget is the Meat Tenderizer
Stamp by Meat Maximizer. I have to admit, I’m sort of
on the fence with this one. The ability to tenderize meat without those scary-looking
meat tenderizer hammers seems like a good idea,
but wouldn’t a fork or a hookah foil puncher do, as well? Which kitchen gadget did you
think was the most useless? Do you have any of
these, find them useful, and object to our picks? Better yet, do you have
your own wacky ones that seemed nice in theory but ended up becoming dust collectors
once you tried them out? Either way, please let me know down in the comments section below. And thanks for watching!

  • Actually as a milk loving cereal fan who doesn't want to hork down my cereal before it gets soggy the cereal divider is awesome

  • Bananzer looks like it could be used to more than bananas, like sausages, cucumbers, carrots and other round and long things

  • Be amazed the cookie dipper is useful because what if your cookie fell into the milk and then it’s all soggy an there’s crumbs and stuff

  • Vat19 has a lot of good products in food products he's talking about are good I have both of them and I use them every time I either eat sushi or a need to crack an egg and boil

  • I have a similar meat tenderizer. You can take a pork chop and make it so tender grandma can chew it without her teeth.

  • The yolks DO NOT sink to the bottom lol the holes in the nose are too small for the yolks to come out but the egg white slides right passed.

  • That peanut butter and jelly spoon, herb slicer, and cookie dipper are genus. And I love my banana slicer (first world perks).

  • These are actually all really useful things but this guy complaining for like 10 min straight for no reason

  • Are you that afraid of getting your hands milky. Just dip it he Oreo in most of the way and put the dry part in your mouth the just drink the milk

  • That’s what I do and I think that method works great. You know sometimes you have to think outside of the box or just look at the problem in a simple way rather then jumping to conclusions and turning to designing a product and going through all that work for something that can be solved with a simple soulution

  • it's so dumb how he spends more time telling the audience how shitty the product is than actually presenting it.
    Listen dude, just by hearing the name we know it's a dumb invention. no need to write an essay on it.

  • The pizza fork with the slicer is dangerous. There's a guard for the top of the fork, but the bottom, your lip can touch the slicer. Wtf

  • That meat tenderizer is actually really good!I bought one about six months ago and used it on a tough chuck steak. After seasoning and frying, it came out really tender.

  • To the moron who wrote the script for this video the dipper cookie spoon is designed for Oreos and other sandwich cookies. Admittedly if you don't want to spend money on it but still want a way to dip your sandwich cookies in milk long enough to make them slightly softer just use a fork.

  • H! HERBS! H E R B. You pronounce the H. It isn’t there for the fun of it, it really makes you sound uneducated, and irritating.

  • Honestly I find the following very Useful for people with only 1 usable hand:

    – Battery Powered spaghetti fork: For those with one usable hand or those who suffer from carpal tunnel would benefit from this item.
    – Banana Slicer (The whole banana at one time): not a good Idea for a 1 handed person to try and slice something with a knife without some sort of support so this would be easy enough to use, plus if you are in a hurry to make a bunch of sliced bananas for say a classroom of kids for a snack, then this would speed it up by a lot.
    – Finger forks: if someone who cannot use the full function of their hands but only fingers (Say a cast is on both hands so cannot grasp anything correctly), then this item would help those who can literally only use a finger to at least stay independent and not rely on people to feed them with a fork.
    – Roll and pour: you pretty much covered some rational reasons for it, also a one handed person can benefit from it.

    – I want the Skull Eggamatic for myself: BRAINSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS, lol.

  • Some of the things are a waste of money but some can be helpful like the fork and knife chopsticks cut some people like don't know how to use normal chopsticks

  • Me: ok cool inventions your kitchen do need!

    friend: no, it is cool inventions your kitchens don’t need!

    Me: wait whaaaaaa~~~ 🙀🙀🙀

  • Some of these are old. Battery powered spaghetti forks were in novelty catalogs decades ago. Spaghetti measures — at least a decade. Oh, and those are half-gallon and gallon milk containers, BTW.

  • And what about rice cooker, cofee maker, water boiler, toaster, waffle maker, sandwich maker, hot dog maker, peelr…

  • The last one is also made by JACCARD. It helps to break through the connective tissues to soften the products. I’ve used them for YEARS commercially. They are a God send!
