Unitasker Wednesday: How would you like your eggs?

Gun FryerIf your answer to the title question is, “With as much fire power as possible,” I may have found an item for you. Have you ever eaten eggs in the shape of a .45? Well, now is your chance with Gun Egg Fryers, brought to you by the lovely folks at UrbanTrend.

In my quest to find ridiculous unitaskers, I often come across questionable and weird products. The Gun Egg Fryer is very perplexing to me and fits into the questionable category. Does food in the shape of a firearm taste better? Are the Gun Egg Fryers part of some bizarre national trend? Maybe weapon shaped food is the next big thing for 2008.

Can you please pass the bazooka shaped pepper mill?

**Unitasker Wednesday posts humorously poke fun at the single-use items that manage to find their way into our homes.

    Gosh, I think almost everything on that site could be featured on Unitasker Wednesday!

    Unitasker? You don’t have to stop at eggs! Pancakes, jello molds, biscuits, chopped liver sculptures, terrines…the gun shaped possibilities are endless.

    Haha, absolutely ridiculous. What I am wondering is how you get the eggs out of the pan? The gun cutout is most likely made of mettle, so that is a serious burn waiting to happen. Ha, then again, maybe this firearm is supposed to pack that punch 🙂

    I don’t know — just entering menopause, I find this item strangely appealing.

    Right on Angela! At least the recepient gets a warning…

    This is what you have for breakfast if you work for the ATF.

    Maybe I misunderstand the product, but isn’t this just a cookie cutter in a frying pan?

    I think it’s cool! Regular food gets boring after awhile, don’t you think? My hubby would love this since he’s a die hard fried egg lover, and as a hobby likes to shoot guns!

    I’d like this, except I’m beginning to get cautious / suspicious / skeptical of all things non-stick. Now, that’s mostly based on things I’ve read casually (possibly scurrilous rumors) asserting a link to cancer.

    Now, a stainless steel egg-poacher with a gun-shaped mold, that I would very possibly go for. (I’m serious :))

    It’s a first! I BOUGHT something because of Unitasker Wednesday! A definite unitasker! I was looking at the company’s webpage and found the Candle Carver which cuts exactly the right amount out of fruits or vegetables to stick in a tea light candle. (Which is hard to do with a knife–I’ve tried.)

    Back on the subject–the only sentimental kitchen thing which I saved from my own childhood was a round mold which makes pancakes in animal shapes. My three year old loves the results as much as I did.

    @ellipsisknits — If you follow the link, you’ll see that there are additional cookie cutters you can buy in the same shape … unitaskers all of them! 🙂

    I wonder, do you think they have ‘Peace Sign’ molds? For some reason, whenever I eat anything, I like to cut it into pieces and this a peace mold would really save me the hassle…

    *Badoom Kssssh!*

    OK, that was lame, but this is a cool find.

    I hate to admit this, but I think this is really, really cool.

    Yeah, count me as one of the people who love this. It’s a unitasker, true, but I’ve decluttered so much of my space I have room for it.

    So, is there also a “holster” cutter for the toast?
