    Chad's Crappy Corner & His New Theme For November.

    Chad polled our loyal Patreon members and asked them to vote on his 'cheap gadget theme' for November. And the winner is “Cheap Kitchen Gadgets”!

    Chad's first cheap gadget is: Egglettes Hard Boiled Egg Pods. There are many versions of this same product on Amazon. Chad bought his at BedBath & Beyond. Here's what BB&B says about them. Egglettes Hard Boiled Egg Pods are an incredible innovation that allow you to cook perfect hard-boiled eggs without the shell. With a little spray of oil just crack, boil, and pop - never peel a hard-boiled egg again. As Seen on TV. Thermodynamic design allows eggs to cook just like in the shell. Just crack egg in to the silicone pod, boil, and pop out to enjoy. Set of 4. Silicone. Dishwasher safe. 4 for $9.99 at Bed Bath & Beyond.


    And Chad's take: Way too much prep for sort of sad results. In this week's show you'll watch all the steps Chad has to perform and get results that don't look very appetizing. Chad said he rates this very low, or as he put it: “among the crappiest of the crappiest.”


    They're also here on Amazon for under $10 for 4: https://amzn.to/2QglQOS (On Amazon there are dozens of similar egg cookers for less money. Maybe some with better ratings. Egglettes got 3.1 stars out of 5 from 184 customers on 11/2/18.
