We spend a lot of time making fun of kitchen appliances -- almost too much time. But with items like the microwavable s'more maker and the voice-activated grill on the market, how can we resist?

Sometimes though, we come across a kitchen appliance that is absolutely unnecessary and utterly ridiculous, and yet somehow still 100 percent awesome. We've found more than a handful of pointless appliances that we secretly wish would be a waste of space on our kitchen counters. Because the way we see it, what kitchen wouldn't be a little more complete with an always-running personal chocolate fountain?

Behold, all the kitchen appliances you absolutely don't need, but probably should get anyway.
