When we moved into our house a year ago, I loved everything about it… everything but the appliances. They work fine, and there isn’t a need yet to get news ones, but they are that cream color that everyone had in the 80’s. The refridgerator has an ice dispencer on the outside that looks like it should be a water one. But it’s not. It’s ice, or get this, crushed ice. Yeah. Groovy. I wanted the stainless steLogan variety, but the couple that sold us the house weren’t that hip!
Though, they aren’t hideous enough to enter into this contest (just annoying), I know there has to be some interesting ones out there! If you have a scary old appliance and want to win something cool for it, read on!

Trapped in a house haunted by once useful, but now useless, gadgets and gizmos?
