20 most worthless pieces of junk: #8 -- Ice cream maker, bread machine


There are two machines in my kitchen that are supposed to save me time, but don't -- an ice cream maker and a bread making machine.

I understand that these machines are meant to save time and produce something better than what is available at the store. The smell of homemade bread is one of the best things around, and home-churned ice cream is great. But neither of these machines works well enough to have me yearning for theirbread or ice cream.

Both machines make food that is excellent if eaten as soon as it's ready -- you can't beat freshly made hot bread or cold ice cream -- but after less than a day they each lost their appeal.
