Speaking of useless potentially useful...

So you want an Egg McMuffin. I don't blame you, they are delicious that's for sure. But do you want one badly enough and often enough to buy a piece of gear designed solely to make Egg McMuffins?

You put some water, an egg, a sausage patty or round of Canadian bacon and a split English muffin in this Egg and Muffin Toaster from Back to Basics and before you know it - bam! You've got McMuffin-like goodness. (Once you add a slice of American cheesy goodness, of course).

Clearly, this is a ridiculous device. Sure, you could use the toaster portion as just a toaster, and the egg poacher is nice for those of us who can't poach an egg consistently to save our lives, but - Well, now wait a minute.

Easy poached eggs whenever you want, eh? Hmmmmm... Maybe, just maybe I-

OK for Pete's sake don't let me buy this thing. I have no place to put it and it would end up next to the bread machine in the "objects collecting dust" portion of the kitchen.

But can it make Hollandaise sauce? If so, I WANT ONE OF THOSE!!! (Please pass the Canadian bacon...)

I can't stop laughing! This has got to be about as useful as one of those hot-dog maker and corn poppers:

Oh dear! That's just too funny! I'd be tempted to buy it just for it's egg-poaching qualities too!

As stupid as this is, the Dork Fork (pizza-cutter) takes the cake for the dumbest invention I've seen in a long time.
