Unitasker Wednesday: Mac Magic pasta pot

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

Macaroni and cheese from a box, specifically Kraft Dinner (KD), (“Dîner Kraft” if you speak French) is referred to as the national dish of Canada. Canadians eat 55% more Kraft Dinner than Americans making it the most popular grocery item in our country. When we were living in England, we had family members ship us a few cases of Kraft Dinner so that our children could share a “typical Canadian meal” with their U.K. friends.

Even as much as we love our KD, I cannot fathom why I would buy a device as unitaskery as the Mac Magic 4-qt. Pasta Pot.

The pot does have a strainer lid which makes it easy to drain the water from the pasta but there are many other higher quality pots with strainer lids. The Mac Magic pot has a stirring unit built into the lid but  you can only use it in conjunction with the pot — unlike a regular spoon or spatula that you can use with any pot. There is also a little hole in the lid in which you can add ingredients which is useful because when you lift the lid the stirring unit pulls out all of the contents and spills them all over the place.

The Amazon reviews of this product indicate that it is not very well made. Reader Kimberley, who alerted us to this unitasker observes that the ‘description included ‘Eliminates dirty dishes’. Except this contraption is huge and ridiculously difficult to clean!”

Thanks Kimberley for sharing this unitasker with us. I now have a craving for Kraft Dinner which I will make using my multi-purpose pot, multi-purpose strainer, and multi-purpose spoon.

    I’d rather buy a popcorn pan. It can cook Mac and Cheese and Popcorn too.
