What's Your Biggest Kitchen Gadget Regret?
I'm a sucker for technology. When we put in what seemed like a boldly over-qualified six-tap draught beer system in 1994, I signed up for these electronic flow meters that were going to compile all of these insanely minute statistics on how much of each type of beer we were pumping at each time of day, etc. Useless. Never have seen any benefit from it. Seemed like a great idea at the time.
A grill top smoker tray. They just don't compare to traditional smokers or even smoker pans to use in ovens or on burners.
A Cryovac machine for the hotel. The rules and regulations in Maricopa County are extremely strict. It's collecting dust in my storeroom.
Flies are a big problem right now. How do you get rid of them without swatting them? I did some investigating and bought a fly vacuum. Looks like a light saber from Star Wars only it's for "Fly Wars." Charged it for 24 hours as directed and put it to the test. Problem is this thing doesn't suck! Yes, that sucks and was a waste of 50 bucks.
Gadgets? I'm not that kind of chef. I'm lucky I have a can opener. Biggest regret is not having a kitchen big enough to have some regrets.
