I make chicken in mine. I've tried other things but I would most highly recommend the chicken. I rub the chicken with olive oil first and then sprinkle with garlic powder, onion powder, salt, pepper and paprika. (I got this recipe at DC) My family goes crazy for it. It's crispy and juicy and just the best chicken I've ever had (or made)
Now that you mention the iced tea maker, it's not that I hate it. I just don't ever pull it out to use it and haven't been happy with the taste of the sweet tea that I make. Do you have a recipe for me to try to get the tea to taste better?

I second this love my rotisserie and used my iced tea maker once. I brought
the tea maker into work for people to use and they have never used it either.

My Dad is a sucker for everything sold on t.v. I would bet my folks have
one of those pasta tube cooker deals.

I would have to say the plastic bendable cutting boards. Neat idea but
the plastic slides all over the place when your trying to cut something.

Electric can openers they never work for me, good old ones are the best.

metal skewers never have used them they would be to hot to turn

Hey Rickell,
We have a lot in common. I only use the old fashioned can openers too!
Never tried the plastic cutting board but I do have a set of metal skewers and you're right, they are way too hot to turn. I do use them though because I like the way they look better than burnt wood but they really aren't practical at all.

As for the burnt wood skewers, just cover the part w/o food, with foil. After soaking, of course.

Set it on a kitchen towel

I think the electric ones are so unsanitary...I use a hand can opener that I can toss in the dish washer.

I have 2 of those, and love them. They came with a rubbery drawer liner looking thing to put under it that keeps it from sliding. Plus the rubbery thing works great for my wife to open jars if I am not around! Just get some drawer liner and cut a rectangle to fit.

I still hear about this from my husband.
Essie, gotta love those husbands with the memory of an elephant (like yours and mine)..........

I still hear about the yeast I bought to make him rolls shortly after we married that sat in the drawer for years.

I thought an electric bacon cooker was called a microwave.
Aside from that I can't even picture what one would look like.

Buying that ill-fated Tilia Food Saver 550. It's a piece of crap.

The thing had crapped out in less than three years!
