Unitasker Wednesday: Cheese Melting Dome

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 absolutely adore the genius who “invented” the Nordic Ware 365 Indoor/Outdoor Cheese Melting Dome:

In case you’re confused by what the Cheese Melting Dome is, it’s an aluminum bowl with a handle on its bottom. (A handle, made of aluminum, that conducts heat and will easily burn the skin off your fingers if you decide to touch it. Because that’s what metals that conduct heat do when you place them on a heat source.) And this bowl-with-a-handle-on-it traps heat on your grill the exact same way closing the lid of your grill does. It also does the exact same thing a rounded pan lid would do if closing the lid on your grill was too much work. Or, you know, the heat of the burger when it’s freshly removed from the grill can also melt a slice of cheese on a bun but DETAILS.

This gadget may not even have enough of a purpose to be a UNItasker and can be reproduced by so many other things that, again, I must praise its inventor for getting it to market. It’s so brilliantly unnecessary that I love it with a fiery passion. This may be the winner of all unitaskers.

Thanks to reader S for bringing this gem to our attention. It is glorious.

    I’ve seen greasy-spoon diners use something like this on the grill when cooking several different orders at the same time. But I don’t think of my cooking as greasy-spoon, so I’ll pass on this product.

    We have one of these. Housemate has used it once. I think. I’ve grabbed it a couple times when I had something cooling on the counter and didn’t want those flying pesky things to land on it or when the cat was showing far too much interest and I didn’t want to have to stand guard. Does that make it more than a unitasker? 🙂
