Perhaps You Need A Monotasking Twinkie-Maker

twinkiemakerWhy would you use your oven when you could have an entire pantry full of baking devices that are devoted to one extremely specific food item, and often don’t make that food item all that well? That’s why we’re fascinated with these appliances, which can make anything from ice cream sandwiches to pretzels, but cannot create more storage space in your house.

If I could buy a plug-in storage space generator for only $18.97, I would grab a dozen of them. Unfortunately, that’s not available. However, the Twinkie machine is, and it comes with a recipe book. Reviews, unfortunately, are mixed.

“These aren’t like the Twinkies you will kind on the shelves today, this is the old school classic Twinkie recipe…you know, back in the day before High Fructose Corn Syrup was the first ingredient in every packaged food so naturally it will taste different, look a little different and feel different,” explains one satisfied customer.

“All the directions need revising. The only way to get the Twinkies out is to grease the cavities with Crisco AND to turn the entire device upside down (the directions call for non-stick spray and a wooden utensil – which works great if you want pieces of mangled pastry instead of a whole Twinkie)” says a less satisfied customer. That’s before the filling explodes the provided pastry bag. “This would, however, be the perfect gift for your least favorite co-worker or a prank-themed white-elephant exchange, particularly if you think the recipient will be gullible enough to try using this item.”

That describes any of these monotasking baking products, doesn’t it?
