We aren't the first generation to deal with over-designed kitchen gadgets. Take a look at this electric flour sifter from the 1950s.

The question of why a flour sifter would ever need to be electric boggles our minds. Efficiency? Time savings? Finer flour? These don't add up. It's a nice collector's item though - maybe for the cook who already has everything? It's currently going for $1.99. Shipping is $10 and the auction ends July 26.
