    Food processor. I bought it to puree veggies for DS when he was a baby. I used it twice and turns out a fork was just as good.

    V slicer was a housewarming gift. I used it once & wasn't worth the hassle!

    Clearly they didn't account for Qld summers.....

    Really? I didn't think to do that? So bugger browning it all, just chuck it in? I have a chicken curry that i do but it is such a PITA with preparation that I've given up, maybe I'll try that way.

    Default * Spin Off* Most useless house appliance

    Blender for me. I've had it for 12 years and it would have been used less than 10 times.

    Any appliance that is a PITA to clean rarely gets used - this includes my juicer, ikon grill (like a George Forman grill) and food processor.

    I never brown anything (not even chicken) and it always tastes perfect I just cook it a little bit longer and never had any problems

    Yep just chop, chuck in and switch on I use the packet mixes like beef and red wine casserole which stop all the food tasting the same (a criticism I see a bit about slow cookers). I cook soups as well as my DH and kids are crazy for them in winter. Tomorrow I plan to cook a beef roast in it
