I’m going to be visiting the Kenmore Live studio in Chicago this week and they’ve tasked me to find the most unusual home appliance usage.
I’ve been wracking my brain for unusual ways to use home appliances. I feel like I’m really boring when it comes to unusual appliance usage. My microwave cooks food and heats water, my stove cooks food and bakes desserts, my washing machine and dryer take care of clothing. My refrigerator keeps food frozen and cold. So what is an unusual use for a home appliance and what do you consider home appliances to be? I forget how small a home appliance may be. Like the vacuum, popcorn popper and even the sewing machines do you consider those to be appliances?
I tried searching online for unusual ways to use household appliances and well one site was perverse and everything else was also very boring. So I don’t recommend doing a search like that. I asked my friends on Facebook and found some interesting uses for home appliances that I never would have even considered.
One interesting appliance usage I found was using a vacuum to clean a sink. I find that disgusting but if you’re drain is clogged and you don’t want to use drano I suppose that a very powerful vacuum will work.
Food dehydrator can be used to make crafts, make fire starters, and herbal tea. I had no idea a dehydrator could be used in so many different ways.
And Nathan Sweaney told me that a lot of hobbyists use a toaster oven to solder surface mount components on circuit boards. While Catherine Davis told me, “right after hubs and I got married we were broke as hell. he would make toast by placing bread right on the electric stove coils … it was weird” And Rachel Smallbeck Dapelo said, “not sure it’s unusual, but my uncle used to roast his coffee beans in air popcorn poppers.”
Then I suddenly remembered my friend doesn’t use her dishwasher for washing dishes. Her dishwasher is used for storage. I’ve asked her if we can create a video of her dishwasher and what’s inside. Now while we’re working on that you should also work on a video because Kenmore Appliances is offering a giveaway for an unusual home appliance usage.
