Most tea-pots. So many dribble. Restaurant pots are the worst.
Electric can openers, all of them suck.
Inexpensive electric power washers. Don't even get me started.
I had to buy one because my wife couldn't start my gas powered washer . . . don't get me started either.
, yeah, I inherited one from my Dad.
At least the pressure is so weak you can wash a car. If I tried that with my gas powered and caught a stone chip, it would zipper the paint off for three feet before I could react.
Soldering irons. No matter how much solder I use, the joint does not last long. I've been trying to make cold joints, but those don't work long at all. I've gone through dozens of soldering irons, none of which work right.
Another home made tool. The tip is an allen wrench. I just used it to set the saddles on my Strat, but that is not what I created it for.
This is the best soldering iron I have ever used . . . and it still isn't perfect.
String trimmers, now that the rabid, know-nothing environmentlists sucking at the federal trough are designing the engines.
Since we're onto bad vehicles. The worst one I ever had was a Mazda B2200 pickup. I used it as an actual pickup, and that ruined it within a year. Apparently it was built to serve a purely decorative function, ugly though it was. I had a Dodge Dakota once too: nearly as bad. My old Jag broke down all the time (They're British), but it was charming as heck, which counts for a lot.
May I direct your attention to the average Chrysler K-Car?
I got one at Harbor Freight about 3 years ago and used it many times with no problems. About $80. 1750 PSI, which is perfect for cleaning fences and driveways, and I recently cleaned my motorhome roof with it.
Get one of these.
Pro Tip: keep your fingies out of the hole when you press down on the cutty thing.
Hmmm...it appears the lawyers got involved in the design! This newer version has a clear plastic Dummy Guard to help dummies retain their digits.
This doesn't auger well
I was on a kick of rescuing dumpster string trimmers for several years, because I like two-stroke engines. I ended up with a bunch of them, all box-store brands, which worked okay because at least two or three ran at any given time. But I (try to) maintain about 16 acres in two parcels and put a lot of trimmer time in, and eventually my luck ran out with that “fleet.”
We bought a $350 Redmax, and got a $300 Husqvarna as part of a mower purchase package deal. Both have the “strato-charged” two stroke engines, which are intended to reduce emissions and save fuel
By not letting as much unburned fuel mix escape out the exhaust port. So far they have been easy to start and good runners, with waaay better fit and finish than the box store brands I was “collecting.”
However the strato-charged engine in the chainsaw I posted earlier in this thread has been a finicky pain in the ass to tune, and I’m sore about it because before strato engines came along, I thought I knew lean from rich and was always able to keep two-strokes in a sharp state of tune. Apparently that Poulan saw gives the user a choice of “blubbery slug” or “piston seizure.”
(Early onset senility might be another option; hope not)
My POS side by side Maytag french door refrigerator. Bought it five or six years ago. No lights on the control panel. Replaced control board. Still no lights. At this moment it's a 2k boat anchor.
My grandparents had the same fridge for 40 year. They both passed away before it did.
My Buick LaCrosse has 310 horsepower.
