WORTHLESS? YOU TELL ME

I have always been the type of person who likes to try new gadgets and new ways of doing simple tasks. Of course, a lot of new things I have purchased I perhaps use one time and find out it is too time consuming to use it again. Then it just takes up space.

I have bought items such as a pasta cooker, pasta measurer, hot dog cooker, cookie shooter, salad shooter, juicer and a microwave egg cooker just to name a few.

I am very gullible when it comes to infomercials on TV. The late TV pitchman, Billy Mays, could have sold me an igloo in Antarctica and I probably would have taken the bait.

This past Christmas, Daughter No. 3 wanted one of the egg cookers that you put in a plastic egg shaped container and boil the eggs in the container. You crack the eggs into the individual holders which are egg shaped and put them in boiling water until they are done.
