Gadget question

If there’s a kitchen tool that can make coffee cubes or frozen yogurt bites in a very short amount of time (say about 10-20 mins), would you guys want something like that?

Another No!

It seems like it would be easy enough to make both of those items using an ice cube tray or a mini muffin pan. You could even use the miniature paper cases in the muffin tin to make the frozen yogurt bites a little more interesting.

It doesn't sound like a useful space taker upper.

No.

I would never use anything like that. I agree that it would be a waste of space (and money). I can make those things in my freezer. One rarely needs frozen coffee cubes made immediately

I don't even know what you would do with coffee cubes. Never heard of it.

Probably for iced coffee drinks.

I wouldn't use such a machine either.

Can't think of any reason for it here either. Guess he's getting the answer he didn't want.

Not too many folks out there with an IMMEDIATE need for yogurt bites ...

Not interested either but you can design me a compactor that compresses single serving freeze dried food into small cubes or cylinders. :)
