Ever find yourself browsing online and stumbling on all sorts of gadgets that are totally unnecessary? Yup, me too. So I compiled 27 cool kitchen gadgets into one list of items you likely have no use for! Haha!


I have a confession to make. I do ALOT of online shopping. 😛 As in, I browse around the sale section of certain websites quite regularly. And buy things I probably don’t need.  While I’ve been doing all this browsing I have come across so many cool kitchen gadgets that I thought I needed to compile them into a list. A list of items you probably don’t need either. But it sure is fun to see what’s been invented! We’ve come a long way from the humble and plain gadgets of our parents!

That’s it for now. But tell me, which of the cool kitchen gadgets on this list would you deem the most unnecessary?!



  1. I love the garlic house, the pizza cutter, and the carrot whisk. The artist’s palette cheese tray is really neat! We already use a container for garlic and go through it pretty quickly, but proper storage can definitely help prolong the freshness of the garlic.

  2. You’re right. I don’t need any of this stuff, but I got a great laugh at some of these products. The microwave cleaner, really! Ha, and the wine cork with the dino on top. Ha ha.

  3. Oh, I love this!!!! We just did a major purge of our kitchen and that included chunking most of the single-use items. I am enjoying the more minimalist kitchen but I confess…that ax pizza cutter is calling my name for Family Movie Night!!! 😉

  4. Oh my gosh – this has got to be the most fun blog post I have read in a really really long time! Thank you for the laughs, and the impulse purchase dreaming. I love the ANGRY MAMA MICROWAVE CLEANER. Now that would motivate me to clean my microwave a lot more consistently (maybe like every night after work!)

  5. Wow! Such a diverse array of items, while very creative, are really unnecessary in a kitchen! I have noticed when I am in a kitchen section of a store just how many such items exist and have wondered who has room in their kitchen or the initiative to purchase them!

  6. I love the axe pizza cutter and the mug with a hoop! Haha, definitely not things you need but it adds so much fun! I bought my husband a laser cutting pizza cutter a few years ago for his birthday and now every time we take pizza out of the oven, we have to turn all the lights off so he can use his laser cutter for cutting pizza! Lol 🙂
