In the third week of The Kitchn Cure we were tasked to finish up all previous tasks, buy any needed equipment, and generally get ready for upcoming weeks. This meant actually getting rid of the stuff I cleaned out. Thankfully I had a girlfriend visit who was headed to the thrift store the following day. Phew, saved me a trip to Goodwill.
One of the things that went out the door was this collection of bottle openers. In this day of twist-offs these were simply taking up space. Of course, there are always a few craft beers that make their way into the fridge that need an opener. I did keep one. It's a long way from the house we lived in ten years ago that had one of those soda fountain openers attached to the island in the kitchen.
Before I hit the liquor store and Lee Valley for my long desired microplane I will ask you - what useless tool have you found in your kitchen?
