All Unitasker Wednesday posts are jokes — we don’t want you to buy these items, we want you to laugh at their ridiculousness. Enjoy!
I often think this weekly feature could be renamed “Instead of a knife …” Instead of a knife, this thing-a-ma-jigger slices a banana! Instead of a knife, this gadget somehow sections a grapefruit! Instead of a knife, own a thousand unitaskers that you don’t need and that take up a ridiculous amount of space in your kitchen cupboards!
This week’s selection obviously falls into this same “Instead of a knife …” category. I have to admit, the little guy is cute and I love how he has a food bowl for ketchup. But there is no way the Hot Dog Slice and Serve is more useful than a knife and plate:
See, I told you he was cute!
Unfortunately, this plastic doodad isn’t going to chop onions or carve a pumpkin or do anything other than look adorable. It certainly can’t multi-task, and according to the reviews on Amazon, it’s not even good at replacing a knife.
Megan said, “This thing isn’t sharp enough to cut through the skin of the hot dog.” And Bruce commented, “Full size hotdog won’t fit in holder,” and that it’s, “hard to clean.” It appears that in its attempt to be safe for children to use, it became impossible for anyone to use.
If only people needed kitchen utensils for their cuteness instead of their function …
Thanks to readers Dave and Bethany for sharing this unitasker with us.
