Dora toaster and sandwich maker
Sent from my GT-I9300 using BubHub
Mine would be the coffee machine from 2006/7 that squeals like a pig or the milkshake maker that's not been used in at least 3 1/2 years.
Rice on the stove top tip - cook basmati rice - never ever gluggy!
I LOVE my rice cooker!
Most useless item - a pancake maker that was gifted to me. It sat in my cupboard for years and then I threw it.
I don't buy a lot of appliances, everything I have I use often.
My piece of poo washing machine that didnt even last for years. I might put my steel caps on and kick the piece of junk before it gets taken away tomorrow
And anything but my thermomix is useless. So it's all been turfed, except my egg cooker, I thought it was a stupid gift but my kids love the perfect hard boiled eggs!

Definitely the slow cooker... Might have to revisit with a newborn though.
I do have things in storage such as rice cooker that will get tossed when I clean it out.
I do need to replace a few things but the ones we have are so old the current equivalents are crap..
Ever tried finding a toasted sandwich maker that doesn't have a diagonal cutter built in???
You can't cook an egg toastie in one of them. You end up with half of it white and half yolk.
Also need a new milkshake maker.. Can't find one that will take the cup we have, can't buy a machine that has more then one cup, can only get one cup for them, but it doesn't fit any makers on the market.
Best thing about getting my kitchen stuff out of storage though.... 2 food processors... I have dreamed of it before, but it will be real soon... I hope.
at the moment my useless items are
slow cooker (4 years old and not used once)
egg cooker (4 years old and not used once)
cake mixer thing (you know they have the 2 beaters )
sandwich presses (we have 2)
i looove my rice cooker!! I can cook rice on the stove but i dont like my rice being wet. I Like it like how japanese people eat it (dry and stick together) couldnt live with out it (although i have not used it in a while)
thanks for the slow cooker tips. Will give it a go. thanks ladies.
