There are times when it is acceptable to misuse a tool, and other times when it is not. For example, if you are caught off-guard and need to open a can of paint, it is okay to go ahead and use a cheap flat head screwdriver. The following are a few tool misuse do’s and don’ts.
DO NOT use power tools in the kitchen. A drilled roast is not the best way to woo dinner guests.
DO use power tools when baking, but only if you’re Chef Duff Goldman, owner of Charm City Cakes and host of Ace of Cakes on Food Network.
DO NOT use a hammer or dead-blow mallet in lieu of a proper meat tenderizer.
DO use any tool at your disposal if it enables you to cook with lava.
This should not need saying, but DO NOT use power tools in the bedroom. If you need further convincing, take a look at this recent news article about a mishap involving a “modified” saber saw.
Lastly, check out this video on youtube of some very unsanitary and unappetizing power tool “cooking.”
