kludge did not arise by accident, and it will take something more than mere disapproval to reduce and replace it.
The sous vide required a vacuum sealer (you can kludge it with plastic bags and a straw, but I am not that dedicated).
1962, noun and verb, U.S. slang, fanciful coinage by U.S. author Jackson W. Granholm (b.1921). Related: Kludgy.
[1962+ Computer; apparently fr German klug, ''clever,'' with an ironic reverse twist]
