An Osterizer blender. I unfortunately bought one for my friend for her birthday at the same time (margaritas in mind)...bad decision. This machine blends, crushes and 'smoothes' nothing!

Our first microwave. Huge, didn't fit well in our kitchen, underpowered, a real clunker, a total waste of money. Finally dumped it. Years later, bought another, much smaller one that sits on top of a bookcase in the computer area and has been wonderful.

Maybe a waffle iron.....I don't care for waffles. It collects dust somewhere in the far reaches of a cabinet.

Oh Uncle Bob, my waffle iron has been gathering dust for so long I forgot I even had one til you mentioned yours! Maybe I'll hunt it up and give it a new home somewhere else.

What? Waffle iron? Omigosh!

Buck and I have three. One regular one, one Belgian and one that makes Mikey Mouse head-shaped waffles. We use them all. Every once in a while Buck will ask for Mickey waffles for a weekend breakfast. I bought the Mickey Mouse one in the guise of serving waffles to our grandchildren. Although, I have to say I bought it before any of our children were even married. We've been enjoying Mickey waffles for a long time. They're better than the others.

How funny, Katie E! I sometimes still cut my peanut butter sandwiches into a heart shape or a bat shape with big cookie cutters. I think they taste better, too. lol

My waffle iron is stuffed somewhere in a cabinet. My worst purchase was this silly thing from a TV ad. It was supposed to help you close ziploc bags and make the air go out. The stupid thing didn't even work once. I complained, got my refund then saw the same ad, bought it again. The thing worked once before it broke down. It's a little hand-held device that was used as a paper-weight but got annoyed looking at it and reminding me of my $20 lost. Last time I used it was for a meat tenderizer and tossed it with my waffle iron.

Well, back in the 'olden days' ('70-80's) Presto had these 'neat' gadgets - like their hamburger cooker and hot dog cooker. WHAT A WASTE! What was the point, anyway? I think I got mine at garage sales, and they are long gone.
