    Chad's Crappy Corner & His New Theme For September, 2017

    For September, Chad's Crappy Corner gadgets will be decided by our loyal Patreon members. They can fill out a short form suggesting a gadget Chad should buy and use as his “Crappy Gadget Of The Week”. This week a member suggested Chad buy and try The Eggsact Egg Timer. 

    Here's what Amazon said about it: The Eggsact timer by Hammerhead Products is so simple and easy to use, you will wonder how you ever made eggs without it! Simply place the easy to read timer in a pot of boiling water with your eggs and wait! The color will change from red to purple starting with the outside and moving towards the center. When the color change reaches your desired spot on the scale of soft to hard boiled, simply take your perfectly cooked eggs out and enjoy! The Eggsact Eggtimer is proudly Made in The USA!


    And Chad's take: Chad liked this a lot and he hard-boiled three eggs to test it out. As you'll see in the video he was concerned that he wouldn't be able to tell the 'hardness' of the boiled eggs via the color changing rings. But he found it was very easily to do through the boiling water. Chad also like the price, just $5.99 on Amazon, even cheaper at Bed, Bath & Beyond at $4.99. Amazon offers free shipping, not Prime, but it's an 'add-on item. Bed Bath & Beyond ships for free on orders over $29.00. All in all Chad thought this was something that eggsactly did what it was supposed to do.

  $5.99 (Add-on item at Amazon, free shipping, but not Prime.)
