You down with OTP? Yeah you know me!

Question linked to another thread. What OTP (One Trick Pony) gadgets do you make room for in your kitchen? By OTP I mean gadgets used for one purpose that are replaceable by something else. Here's a couple of mine:

An "X" on a stick used for breaking up ground meat, replacing a spatula or spoon. It's not something I would have bought for myself, but it was given to me as a gift, and to my surprise it really works well. Far from languishing in a drawer, it gets used three or four times a month.

A scraper meant to move chopped veggies from the cutting board to a cooking pan. This was something I always did with the knife blade, but the scraper does a really good job of grabbing all the veggies at once. Again, not something I would have bought for myself, but now I wouldn't be without it.

For me the utility of a doodad is not just asking whether or not I have room for it, but whether it's worth cleaning it once I use it. These two passed the test. What are yours?
