A useless kitchen gadget

A Kitchen gaget that gets thrown-out immediately

Every so often my wife and I clean out the kitchen drawers of the least used kitchen tools in the kitchen to make room for more.

I've tired of buying, storing and then throwing out the gadets to make room for more.

So, I am proposing a truely useless kitchen gadet, that is something that has absolutely no use whatsoever. In this way, it can be thrown out immediately without the storing step. You buy it then throw it out, keepng the kitchen drawers as empty as the day you moved in.

       I bet the cheaper, recyclable and biodegradable ones that are easy for the environment: Paper forks. It sure would be flimsy and definitely useless!   

       Do you mean, "gaget" as gag to get? a paper fork would definitely do to silence your wife sometimes...

       I'm going to bun this as it's better than many supposedly non-useless kitchen devices.

       Has anyone seen the fridge barometer recently?
james_what, Apr 14 2008
  

       xenzag, you should post that one.

       I quite like the fridge barometer - "The outlook will be cold, but dry."

       Paradox: it's purpose is to have no purpose. No reason to throw it away at all.

       ...bottomless Tupperware? No lids either.

       Looking at the very distant past when I could think very differently than the common conventional adults, and scanning quickly the title only without reading your description, I might be suggesting right away a huge gadget - a very muscular robot forklift just like those cartoon-movie characters of "Transformers" that would pull and obliterate quickly your useless kitchen...

       A trash can freshner. buy it. throw in trash. ummmm minty fresh.

       Many years ago a friend and I came up with the idea of a useless tool, cunningly disguised as useful; what looked like a handy lever would be hinged, allowing it to bend annoyingly in the middle when you tried to lever something, and so forth. I think it was inspired by a cheap fake Swiss Army knife which was so astonishingly useless that we wondered whether careful planning had gone into making it so.

       //coconut hair comb// or egg-hair comb for that matter...   

       [spidermother] I like that. How about a screwdriver blade with a useful swivel?

       fork sharpener?

       // a […] gadget […] that would […] obliterate quickly your useless kitchen... //   

       A "Gadget" capable of easily obliterating a kitchen was already made, decades ago. Unfortunately, while it's a very clean way to demolish unwanted structures, it's also very messy.
