Do people who buy stuff like this actually use it or do they just have it sitting out so people can see they bought it?
In my experience people who buy goofy appliances think they are going to use it, but then only actually do the first week. After that it sits on a shelf or in a cabinet except maybe once or twice a year.
Oh, I thought that was a descriptive term, but the name of the product is really a "Frozen Concoction Maker".
Five because it reminds me of Raymond Smuckles competing in the New Kings of Sapphic Erotica Freestyle Literary Battle to determine who is or already was the founder of Williams-Sonoma
What's with the Steely Dan tag?
I'm going to regret admitting to this, but a friend of mine bought one of these (or maybe the slightly smaller version), and I gave him no end of shit over it, until he gave me one and told me to drink it. Not to sound like native advertising, but it was actually really good, compared to, say using a magic bullet. It got the texture of the ice just perfect, it has a pretty smart design (it catches its own ice melt, for example, and is designed to break down and be pretty easy to clean).
I mean sure, it's hundreds of dollars for something that basically just makes frozen drinks, but we've found ourselves drinking an awful lot of frozen drinks from it since then. He's brought it to a ton of parties over the years and I'm pretty sure it's paid for itself.
You're right, you should regret that, unless you're being ironic, in which case, touche... Maybe I just don't go to enough parties. Maybe I should stop being soft and start dropping E's again. Maybe then women will like me and I'll stop spending so much time gambling on e-sports and eating frozen pizzas.
Well, it would be great for parties. But for everyday use the thing makes noises like ED-209 jogging around your kitchen.
