    In defense of the egg separator (I got a free one) I have had my young daughters use it. When kids are young, it is easier than going back and forth between egg shells.

    Ok, now I realize this is just silly... but DH and I were in a Kitchen Store on Saturday (why he agreed to go in there with ME, I do not know!), and we saw this little gem. Now, I'm sure that it has a great use. My sister assures me it does. But we just couldn't stop laughing.


    Don't panic if you haven't seen this yet! Just visit www.bananaguard.com and you, too, can have one!

    Wait, so did you actually buy the obscene-looking banana thing or is that a photo you took in the store?

    I've been laughing out loud reading this entire thread and the only gadget I can think of is the sandwich-sealer thing from PC. It's a great concept but it cuts off so much of the sandwich it's a big waste.

    Guilty as charged. We found the darn thing so funny (we had all the clerks and customers in stitches), we had to get it and share the laugh. DH is a computer consultant, and his main client is where he spends all his time... he figured he would get some laughs out of it... he walked in with it on Monday and the lady who he works with the most looked at it and said (innocently), "I'd heard about those, but didn't realize they were so big!" After which she turned red and said, "I can't believe I just said that."

    Mission accomplished. icon_biggrin.gif

    I do it the same way my grandmother did. I carefully break the shell into two halves over a bowl and pass the yolk back and forth between them until all the white has dripped into the bowl. It's kinda fun, and the oil from your hands doesn't get into the egg whites.

    Is a measuring cup swan a measuring cup shaped like a swan?


    Yes, there was 1/4 cup, 1/3 cup, 1/2 cup and 1 cup swans. The handles are the necks and heads

    Those aren't measuring cups for use. They are dust catchers for a shelf or something.
    I have a set that looks like cappuccino mugs. I don't use them.

    The apple peeler/corer/slicer - I use this every time I make apple pie, I have no problem using any sort of fresh baking apple with this. Mine suctions to the counter though, with a brake to keep it from slipping around.


    For those who do home canning or have apple trees, the peeler/corer/slicer is incredibly fast and cuts through a bushel of apples like butter.

    You have to be careful w/ this--i did this once--I had a mysterious plastic rod in my kitchen that I didn't have a clue what it was--certainly I had never used it--so i chucked it--fast forward a few years to when I inherited hosting all the jewish holidays for my family--turns out it was a piece to my food processor that you need to use the slicing/grating blades! Thank heavens I could order a replacement part b/c after doing all that grating by hand one year, I don't ever want to have to do it again! icon_biggrin.gif

    If you have a toddler/preschooler, this is the most useful invention EVER!!!! Have you ever tried to send a banana for snack or lunch--kid sits on his backpack and it is MUSH. My friend sent me one of these from the UK, and it is one of the most used gadgets in my house. So do not mock it!

    I did that once, too, only my "useless" item was the rack from my convection oven.
