Those who are seasoned cooks usually have lots of kitchen gadgets and know how to use them.
There are others who pretend to be cooks and have gadgets but don't know what to do with them.
And then there are others who don't own many kitchen gadgets at all.
I have some gadgets. I am in the "pretend-to-be-a-cook" category. But I only know how to use but a very few of the gadgets I have.
Take the pizza stone.
It is a stone.
A flat rock.
It is used to cook pizza.
I have been putting my frozen pizza on my pizza stone and then putting the stone and the frozen pizza in the microwave. Voila! A cooked pizza using a nifty kitchen gadget.
At my pizza cooking class I learned the pizza stone is for the OVEN. It is for oven use only.
I now know how to use one of my kitchen gadgets correctly. This gadget is a partner with the OVEN.
Maybe someday I'll make pizza from scratch and put the stone in the oven and cook the pizza on the stone in the oven.
