Efficiency is always the goal. So taking two different kitchen-related functions and putting them into one small product seems like a good idea, right? Right?!? We're not so sure after seeing these two gadgets...

First, we spotted this 2-in-1 kitchen scale&mdash'slash—clock. The idea is that it's super-convenient to not have to keep a scale out on the counter when you need to measure ingredients. Instead, you can just yank the clock off the wall and use it's built-in scale instead.

Then, to keep the trend going, we spotted the $1,600 Kenwood Cooking Chef. It's a food prep machine with a built-in induction system designed to cook food (up to 140 degrees) while you're prepping it.

What do you think of these gadgets? Are they a step in the right direction for efficiency? Or is this a silly move that won't stick around in your kitchen? Let us know in the comments...
