All Unitasker Wednesday posts are jokes — we don’t want you to buy these items, we want you to laugh at their ridiculousness. Enjoy!
This week’s unitasker is far from being the worst contender we’ve ever featured. In fact, if you don’t eat egg yolks, I could see its usefulness. However, for someone like me who “hard boils” eggs by baking them in the oven (the method popularized by Alton Brown in I’m Just Here for the Food and on the “Hard Cooked Heaven” episode of Good Eats), a device to crack eggs into for making shell-less hard boiled eggs is pretty much useless. This little plastic thing would melt in my oven.
I primarily picked this device as this week’s unitasker because, like so many awesome infomercials, I couldn’t stop laughing while watching the clumsy human failing at making eggs (you can catch the infomercial on the product webpage if you haven’t seen it on television). Apparently, without the Eggies, “You’ll be peeling all night!” Poor, poor you. I feel so awful for you. Especially since “Peeling just one egg the regular way can take forever!” FOREVER! (No hyperbole used in this infomercial. Nope. None.)
Thanks, Emily, for sharing this with us.
