Double-Duty Gadgets in the Kitchen

Even though we’re only one episode into the new season of Worst Cooks in America, there’s one contestant in particular that’s caught my eye: Erica Weidner. Playing for Team Bobby, she’s quirky, ready to learn and hilarious.

For the Baseline Skill Challenge, the contestants were asked to cook a dish that would “explain who they were.” Erica, whose family has dubbed her an impractical cook, thinks she’s just resourceful. We saw this come to play when she used scissors to cut up a bell pepper. In the past, she’s also used disposable razors to peel turnips and plyers to remove giblets from a frozen chicken.

This got me thinking: What other gadgets have people used to cook up a dish in the kitchen? Tell us in the comments below. The person with the most unique double-duty gadget technique will be featured in an FN Dish post next week.

    I use my big slow cooker to make chicken stock. Put in bones, scraps or whatever I have saved, a whole onion, a couple of carrots, a couple of ribs of celery, maybe a head of garlic fill the cooker up the rest of the way with water.c. Turn it on overnight and wake up to the best aroma in the world (next to morning coffee)…..homemade chicken stock
