Unitasker Wednesday: How to ruin the fun of s’mores

All Unitasker Wednesday posts are jokes — we don’t want you to buy these items, we want you to laugh at their ridiculousness. Enjoy!

Just the other day, I was sitting around thinking about how s’mores are way too much fun for their own good. They involve sticks and gooey marshmallows and an open flame and it is all more happiness than I can handle. When I want to make s’mores, I want a totally dull and boring experience. Therefore, you can imagine my contained excitement when fellow Unclutterer Dave Caolo emailed me about the Charcoal Companion SS Smores Roasting Rack CC3112:

This thing is such a fun-killer that even its name is boring. Jackpot!

Sadly, this clinical s’mores maker is just one in a long line of fun-killing s’mores makers. We shall not forget the Old Fashioned S’mores Maker, the S’mores Maker, the Microwavable S’mores Maker, the S’more To Love STL-600, or the Reel Roaster (though, this last one does look to be mildly entertaining), all of which we have featured in the past in our Unitasker Wednesday column. Ruining s’mores is quite the trend these days. Poor, s’mores.

Finally, I couldn’t stop laughing about the product description on Amazon, which lists the Charcoal Companion’s sales ranking in its category:

Pet Supplies? I … I … I … I don’t want to know how this is in any way related to a pet …

    I like having reusable marshmallow sticks for my fireplace. I can’t reuse an actual stick because there’s no good way to clean it, and I don’t want to go outside in the cold or bad weather to get a stick. The telescoping ones are nice because it’s convenient to be able to make a stick smaller.

    BTW, the pix for the Old Fashioned S’Mores Maker is wrong. It should look like one of these: http://www.123rf.com/photo_124.....undle.html

    My favorite way to make smores is in the microwave, everything melts so well! Smores at a campfire never turn out, there are other better things to make with campfires.

    William B, I agree about having reusable skewers because you can also use them for kebabs, and any other food that requires a skewer to cook. Very handy, and sanitary too!

    This product however, really does look like a fun sucker. I don’t see a point in putting the graham crackers on the heat either, I would think it’d make them more brittle which would lead to more breakage, and therefore more s’mores on your hands or floor than in your mouth.

    I actually like this idea! I make s’mores the old fashioned way and its just too messy for me. I am a little OCD that way, so this idea looks great! I think I’ll buy one.

    Once upon a time, when I was several years (ahem) younger, the hot toasting marshmallow from a s’more dropped off the stick onto my shin and stuck there, producing a small but deep third-degree burn before I was able to scrape it off. For the next few days I was able to show off my third-degree burn and boast about it. What complicated maneuvers would a young person have to go through now, using this fancy device, to achieve such a distinction?

    Infidels! How dare they take all of the fun out of the making of s’mores? How are we supposed to set our marshmallows on fire (accidentally-on-purpose, of course) while using this device?

    Just another useless gadget. S’mores mean camping, fires, sticks, drips….and a few lovely messes.

    The relation to pets is that melted marshmallows stick to their fur.
