Celebrity chef and Thyme Lord Alton Brown is no fan of “unitaskers” — kitchen gadgets with only one purpose. But maybe these Amazon offerings aren’t so bad.

Alton Brown is hitting the road in 2016 for the “Alton Brown Live: Eat Your Science Tour.” Fans can expect new puppets, songs and potentially dangerous culinary demonstrations. Tickets are on sale now:

We use the heck out of our breakfast sandwich maker! It's the only unitasker that we have used regularly for an extended amount of time. Makes great S/E/C sandwiches for my son before school with precooked frozen sausage patties and round sandwich thins.

funniest thing ive ever seen from alton brown. good on ya, mate!

Brian Straight says:

Honestly, when it finally produced, I'm not sure if I should now liken Rollie's results to male performance or a bathroom activity.

Brian Straight says:

4:00, it's okay, Rollie. It happens to a lot of men as we get older.

John Cavanagh says:

Alton, you are so right! I DO want to be Wolverine!


what!? nothing to make better Tacos? How sad.

Karin Kallmaker says:

As the egg log Rollie goes limp I say in my best Hugh Laurie voice, "Such a disappointment for a girl."

Terrific video, so full of win and #fail.

Matthias Flint says:

To be fair, I actually really like my stupid little Hamilton Beach breakfast sandwich maker, I got it for a dollar and never looked back :D

josh eldridge says:

Hey Mr. Brown, I love you and I think you're a genius when it comes to cooking (and in general I guess). That being said, I wanted to say something about your comment regarding wolverine. It would be very cool to be him, claws and whatnot, but of all the superheros, you would NOT want to choose him because he has the WORST P.T.S.D EVER! He has to live with the memory of a billion scars on his body and a billion bad situations. I understand you meant that the claws would be cool, but I don't think it's worth it overall. P.s. I love the videos you do with the Mythbusters crew! P.P.s I would love to see another show starring you like "good eats", that show was so informative and entertaining.

Clay Halliwell says:

This makes me think the Your Grammar Sucks guy should do an Amazon reviews episode.

Jason Haberman says:

I'm going to go ahead and need more of these videos, STAT.

shintopig says:

His voice at 4:27 . . .

You're welcome (and all sickos).

Tomnickles says:

he SAYS there is only one unitasker allowed in the kitchen. but he uses an ice cream maker. what else do you do with that BUT make ice cream type things? Alton Brown EXPOSED!

Kjellina says:

Ah! Took a break from writing my final paper to see this in my feed. This is the best break I could have asked for. :D

Misti Svozil says:

Love it! There's only one unitasker allowed in the kitchen, fire extinguisher!

Katie Beth says:

That was the best video ever.

scatteredellipse says:

I think the rollie looks like the worst one, what's the point of having a cooked egg log?

Phoenix X says:

this is a great video, thanks Alton
