My latest disillusionment with so-called labor saving devices came when I bought a little 3 cup food "chopper". I'm a reader of instructions and after the usual two pages of "Don't use this if the cord is frayed." and "Don't use this in the bathtub or shower." stuff the first useful instruction said, "Cut the food into 1/2 inch cubes." Heck, if I'm going to do that I may as well just chop the stuff the old fashioned way. I packed it up and took it back to the store unused. Has anyone else bought something that was really disappointing?
