Embarrassing gadget you love?

Isolda | Feb 26, 201110:35 AM     118

I'm sure this has been done before--because there is nothing new under the sun--but on this site you can either resurrect an old thread if you can find it, and be reminded that "this thread is 30 years old. I'm sure the OP is dead by now" OR you can start a new thread and be given 25 links to older threads just like it. I choose the latter.

What embarrassing gadget (perhaps something you ordered off the TV or bought in Bed Bath and Beyond) do you find indispensable in your kitchen?

I gave my son a bagel guillotine for Christmas because I didn't want him chopping his hands up trying to slice his bagel each morning and we all LOVE it. Best gadget I've bought in a long time. It doesn't get washed enough because someone always needs it dry to slice a roll or bagel.

My experience with this kitschy device has been so positive that I'm considering buying a George Foreman grill. How about you?
