May 07, 2012  |  More dubious guidance  |  4910 hit(s)

Normally I am interested in product instructions that are of dubious utility, let's say. (Previous) Today, tho, I ran across more of a wtf moment. My wife bought a new iron over the weekend. The cover of the instruction manual makes this interesting offer:

In case you can't see it clearly, the manual for a steam iron is suggesting that we visit the manufacturer's site for "delicious recipes." I mean, I've heard of a flat iron steak, but I didn't realize that this is what they meant. Iron chef?

More dubious guidance: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8

What, you've never made a grilled cheese sandwich on an iron?

(I was sure you were going to ding Hamilton Beach for the non-parallel structure.)

Well, now that you point out the unparallel structure ...

>you've never made a grilled cheese sandwich on an iron?

I have not, but I'm beginning to get the impression that a lot of people have. Now I kinda want to try it.

You can also do bacon and eggs.

Man, I am definitely going to have to visit the website to get recipes for this thing.

Look at how they cook different foods, and even make s'mores using the iron holes to hold the marshmallow sticks LOL!
