Everyone knows what blenders, pans, and cookie sheets are and what they are used for, but some companies have gotten pretty creative with products they provide to manipulate ingredients in weird ways. Between apple corers, selfie spoons, and carrot sharpeners, some pretty wacky things have been created, some being genius and others being close to useless. Below are, in my opinion, the top 8 most unique food inventions that almost no one has heard of before.
8. Keyboard Waffle Iron
Apparently, with this you can have your waffle and type with it to! Although it may seem ridiculous and impractical, I think this is actually a good idea. In my opinion, the best part of waffles is being able to pour the exact right amount of maple syrup in every hole, and the differently sized holes in this waffle can allow someone to experience with their favorite ingredients to waffle ratio.
7. Oven Pull
I wish I had known about this so much sooner! Everyone knows pulling hot trays or bowls out of the oven is more of a pain than it should be, those mitts that are supposed to protect your hands can be slippery, and personally I have dropped many things wearing those. This is truly a dish-saver and a time saver, I know for sure I'm buying one of these next time I go to the store!
6. The "Roll N Pour"
Have you ever wished you could have avoided spilling that juice, from your hands slipping when tipping some into your cup? Well, the "Roll N Pour" helps avoid that! The fact that it gets rid of the sharp edge you have to balance when tipping a container makes it more spill-proof. Clumsy people like me, we finally have something that will limit our seemingly limitless spilling abilities!
5. The Dipr
When you were younger, how often did you drop your cookie in your milk as you were dunking it? Probably almost never, but kids are clumsy, and this product is for those with slippery fingers. The thing is though, dunking cookies in milk isn't really that hard, but better be safe than sorry I guess.
4. Spaghetti-Twirling Fork
Honestly? This looks a lot more time-consuming and confusing to figure out than twirling the pasta yourself. I mean, twirling pasta isn't difficult, you just stick your fork into the pasta and turn it! Although, my pasta- eating method of choice is shoving fistfuls into my mouth (well, it probably was when I was three, but it isn't considered very polite when you're older, unfortunately, as I'm sure we'd all love to do this :(
3. Carrot Sharpener
Unless you plan on using your carrots as weapons, this gadget probably has zero practical use. Do you ever feel the need to sharpen your carrots? Yeah... neither do I, but it's probably entertaining, and I'm always up for playing with my food as often as eating it.
2. Selfie Spoon
Imagine this- you're eating your cereal and you suddenly want to snap a selfie of you eating it. Can you see yourself doing this? Probably not, but this invention certainly must be fun to play with! It brings multitasking to a level we may never have thought it could ever reach, but hey, it looks interesting.
1. Finger Spoons
If you thought selfie spoons were bad enough, then these finger spoons seem really useless. I mean, when does anyone say that they're too tired to hold a spoon and wish they could just hold it with their finger? It seems really difficult to have to use your finger to shovel food into your mouth, I feel like the spoon would slide off every time you have to take a bite. But hey, enough criticism, on the bright side they seem really cute and fun to eat with. Final analysis... Practical? Not in a million years. Hilariously entertaining? You bet!
