Default Name one gadget you own and never use.

Pizza slicer. I just use a knife. Couple of rocking motions and you're done. I remember my mom had a melon baller that never saw the outside of the drawer for ...a decade, at least.

I have so many! What really comes to mind gadget wise is a juicer - I can't remember the last time I used it. I prefer to just eat my fruit and veggies raw to get the fiber. I used it when I first got it, and juiced everything - turnip greens, carrots, beets, apples. Just seemed like a lot of work and mess for a glass of juice that didn't really taste all that good anyway.

I've got a bunch of other stuff, too that I can't remember the last time I used - like an automatic donut/cream puff filler with three interchangeable hoppers, and an apple peeler/corer.

I rushed out and bought one of those beautiful yellow lemon squeezers. I think I may have used it once. When I use it I love it but never use the thing. That's what happens when you watch too much Food Network.

and that is one thing I use almost daily. I use the pizza slicer as well, but we don't eat pizza too often. The melon baller, that is one I don't think I have ever used, but it was given to me. The other one is the veggie slicer. I love the way it slices the veggies so evenly, but I always forget to use it. I have it in a cupboard that is not where I keep other things. Maybe I need to move it, what do ya thing?

We found the juicer while cleaning out the basement--never used. I don't make homemade pasta any longer, so I have an pasta maker also in the basement. I had a truffle slicer (after watching Rachael Ray) in my Amazon basket but did remove it. I think I have only had truffles in risotto (I actually thought truffles were only upscale chocolates for many years), so I also watch too much TV.

I wish that I had kept my electric fondue maker and electric crepe maker.

Food Processor.

I got it with a gift card and have yet to use the damned thing, and it's huge. It's been sitting in my cabinet this whole time. One of these days when I have more reasons to get fancy with my cooking, I'll break it out.

I don't have an electric crepe maker, but I do have a creme pan cause I love to make them. Anyway, a few weeks ago I decided to use my small fry pan instead of digging to the back of the cupboard for the creme pan, the fry pan actually worked better I think...

Ms J: I have a huge processer and if I didn't do so much canning I too would not like it, but I because I do can, I would be lost without it. I also have a little, 4 cup one I use for everyday type of stuff.
