Kitchen Gadgets

Kitchen Gadgets

Is it just me?
Or have you been seduced,
By sales of kitchen gadgets
Whose price has been reduced

First there was a mandolin
That sliced things oh so thin,
It also sliced your fingers
So you end up eating skin

There’s a multi cooker,
You can roast & bake and fry,
I can’t get it working right
However hard I try

I got a special scissor set
That’s causing me to mutter,
What’s the use of scissors
If they won’t even cut butter

How about the can opener
That sliced easily through your tin,
Except the cutting bit was bent
I threw it in the bin

There’s the fancy juicer,
That was a special buy,
Every time you use it
Juice squirts in your eye

Oh the list is endless
Of dodgy kitchen kit
I fall for it every time
I feel a proper tit!

Loved your funny poem. My kitchen has all the gadgets and utensils I need or will ever need, The older I get, the less I seem to use half the stuff I have. I do like a browse around kitchen shops though.

Funny poem, made me laugh because I used to be the same.
Being very good now, discipline myself with a mantra
"do I want it or do I need it?"
Daily meetings with a group near me "Gadgets Anonymous!" 😉
