Unitasker tools: Love them? Hate them? Despise them like Alton:

I personally actually can't live without a few specific unitaskers.. the main one is cherry pitter (I hate olives, so it really is a unitasker).

I don't mind some unitaskers. I understand space constraints may be a limiting factor, or just the infrequency of use may not justify the money spent, but some of them do make certain tasks quicker. A lot comes down to preference.

I have to agree, unitaskers are all about whether you have the space and the need. I made brandied cherries this year and I'm not even sure how I could have done it without a cherry pitter. I also have a big citrus press, but if I need to juice a bunch of lemons or limes, not regretting the other 90% of the time it just takes up space. I'm sure many other people are like me, I have a bunch of big multi-taskers: stand mixer, blender, and food processor, some of which have feature overlap, but again certain things they are best at.
The one multi tasker that I need though is an insta-pot, then I can ditch my slow cooker and rice cooker.

I like to say that if ALL of your unitasker's can fit in one drawer, then its fine. Being proficient with the tools that can do a specific task well though is important, you don't need an egg slicer if you're at all decent with a knife for instance. If you're unable or unwilling to get good at the task with a multitasking thing such as a chef's knife, then sure, fit it in.

Cherry potter, and strawberry corer. Want to know what can do both, and be used for drinks?
A sturdy straw.

Hate em, but BBQ claws are not a unitasker. Useful for lifting roasts and such, as well as tossing salads.
