  2. You must be more bored than me.
     
  3. Oh and none of the above as im not a stinking pad.
     
  4. Bollox. As a stinking pad i bet you have been forced to buy, for the missus, at least Numbers 5,6,7,10,12 and 17.
     
  5. Fraid not mate being a singly winner, I own not one of the above.
     
  6. Have in the house (not mine) 5,6,11 & 12 think you should have egg poacher like 8 without the shells and we have one of them too.
     
  7. Looks like the inventory from "Wedding Gifts R Us"''

    Um, 4, 10 and 11 but not all at once.
     
  8. I've got one of thoses toothbrushes that tells you how hard you're pushing....o the shame of it I know.

    Yep Dingerr, got most of that junk in the house......ebay here I come!
     
  9. Egg slicer, Electric tin opener & the fondue set.

    They all are all extremely useful items and my waf and I would be lost without them, leave the poor fondue set alone it can't argue it's own case.

    Do you actually know what to due with a fondue set? It's not used for drying swimming trunks like the machine at the local swimming pool!

    I own none of them, but I take exception to the inclusion of Serial #06, the fondue set.

    These are supremely useful, one of the quickest ways of getting off your face short of mainlining port known to man - as anyone who has partied in Switzerland can testify.
     
  13. The best use for an electric carving knife is shaping surf boards and trimming foam when boat building
     
  14. I'll admit to having 4,5,10,12 dumped in the loft. I do use an egg boiler, egg slicer and electric carving knife and wouldn't be without them :)
