    Chad's Crappy Corner.

    Chad’s Theme for April is kitchen gadgets or gadgets that have to do with food.  And Chad’s gadget for this week is the Jokari Baggy Rack. 

    Here’s what Amazon says about it: Whether you're ready to marinate tonight's dinner or have just whipped up a fresh batch of zesty salsa, it's pretty much a given that you're going to use a plastic storage bag. But, what (or who) is going to hold the bag open? Jokari to the rescue with this clever and oh-so-easy to use extra set of hands. The Jokari Baggy Rack's rubber non-slip base holds the rack in place and the adjustable arms and clips will securely hold a variety of bag heights and sizes open while you simply and neatly fill or pour. And, when you're finished, the Baggy Rack folds flat for easy storage. $8.31 on Amazon as 4/16/15. Free shipping, but not Amazon Prime. 

    And Chad’s take? Chad wasn't too impressed with the Jokari Baggy Rack. He said it was a lot to do to hold a bag open the few times he would need it. He said if you worked in a place where you had to fill bags often, it might make sense to buy one. Also he thought it would have been better if the base was a suction cup to help hold the device, but it's just non-skid. By the way, if you are interested in buying one, click on the "2 Count" button at the Amazon Link below. For just about 65 cents more than buying one, you'll get two and free shipping. (And the 2 Count button seems to take you to an Amazon Prime site, so it will be free 2-day shipping if you're a Prime Member.
