Very Popular Things That Have Been Designed Very Poorly

Stove tops that don’t give exact temperatures

Instead, they just have numbers. So…do you want to cook that broccoli on temperature 5 or temperature 6?

Note: changing the knobs to give degrees wouldn’t work for obvious reasons (how long the food has been on the stove, type of pan, etc), but a thermometer of some sort would be useful.

Stickers on fruits

Even Tony Fadell (a lead designer at Apple) noted that these stickers unnecessarily added one step to the fruit-eating process. Why can’t the stickers go on the stem instead of the body?
