Remembering Old Odd Appliances and Cookware

mikie | Jan 29, 2012 06:11 AM

From your youth, what odd applainces or cookware do you remember?

I'll start: My mother always used to say my dad couldn't boil an egg he was such a poor cook. But he did like gadgets and the fact he couldn't cook never stoped him from bringing something home. He owned a grocery store, so his finger was on the pulse of the latest cooking gadget. One day he brought home a "hot dog in a minute", a rectangular plastic box with two rows of metal spikes opposing each other, spaced just slightly closer together than the length of a hot dog. Ends up this thing is like an electric chair for hot dogs. It does cook them in 60 seconds and with absolutely no taste. I think my dad used it once, mother maybe twice and then it sat on a shelf for years.

Your turn.
