    Definitely the snow cone maker!! So much ice for one snow cone, and it's so loud too.

    Everything else I have I love, including some things mentioned in this thread!
    Though I must agree about the Breville Grill, I love it but it's such a pain to clean so it doesn't get used often at all anymore.

    Lol! We have a "fridge hole" (fridge was too big) so I put the high chair in it.

    We also dont have a microwave so I put the kettle and toaster in the microwave hole.

    Default * Spin Off* Most useless house appliance

    Love my rice cooker (just have a plastic microwave one). I love my slow cooker but at the moment it's probably the most useless appliance. I don't have the time or inclination to plan everything in advance lol

    Another who loves the Rice Cooker. Its just a $30 one from woolies. We cannot cook it in a saucepan/microwave. We have tried every single recipe we have found and it either sticks to the bottom of the pan and burns or turns into sludge.


    Most useless thing would be the Blender. We never use it. I use my stick mix instead. My flavourwave hasnt been used in years either.

    I also stopped browning for most dishes. I heard a while back that the scientists tested the whole 'sealing in the juices' theory and proved it made no difference, all browning does is add the browned flavour.

    I ditched the ice shaver years ago but you'll have a fight to get my rice cooker off me, i also wore my last one out and new have the one that does risotto too!

    Thanks everyone for the "non-browning" hint, you may have changed the way I view from slow cooker so really appreciate it

    I can't believe how many people hate their rice cooker! We use ours all the time and it's the only way we get "Japanese" rice (hubby is half Japanese). Everyone in Japan has one and cooking it on the stove requires way more effort and concentration.

    Are you all rinsing your rice first to get the starch off?

    Useless appliances - hotdog maker, milkshake maker and deep fryer (never use it - just put oil in a saucepan)

    No. Does that make it less gluggy?
