New Product Tuesday with Eggies

Some believe that eggs are nature’s perfect food, although the Mayo Clinic recommends you limit your eggy intake due to their high cholesterol content. Hard boiling is one of the easiest ways to prepare this nutritious and delicious protein source, and it’s so easy that even kids can easily learn how to heat water in a pan and boil up a batch. But the makers of Eggies believe they have a better method. Ditch Mother Nature’s container and boil your egg in an Eggies plastic shell. There’s no more messy peeling, and you get flat-bottomed uniformly shaped hard-boiled eggs that stand up on their own. Too bad Eggies don’t come in colors, or they’d be perfect for Easter. Here’s where to buy.

New Product Tuesday with EZ Cracker

A solution in search of a problem?
A solution in search of a problem?

Savvy Shopper’s better half thinks that the EZ Cracker is a solution in search of a problem. She’s a gourmet cook, and can crack and separate an egg with one hand while talking on the phone and checking her email. I’m a little different. Every time I make scrambled eggs (one of the few things I actually cook), you’ll find me picking multiple pieces of egg shell out of the bowl.

So while the food prep pros among us don’t need this gadget, it looks quite useful to us culinary klutzes. Every time I watch the EZ Cracker commercial, I’m amazed by the egg separator attachment and how it catches the yolk and lets the white drain through the tiny hole in the middle. But I’m easily entertained.

I see they’re offering a free Bacon Wave with every order. I’m guessing this microwave bacon tray was not a big hit when first offered, because it’s offered as a freebie with multiple kitchen products.
