Okay, I know the real reason is, someone in product development is always trying to create the latest "must-have" gadget, to get us to spend our money on and make then rich.
But that some products make it all the way into production baffle me - how about you?
- Pancake molds - so every pancake comes out the perfect shape - doesn't that take all the fun out of making pancakes?
- Those "eggies" things I see informercials for - honestly, I have never had any trouble hard-boiling an egg, or peeling it once it's done, or slicing one. And if I want a flat bottom so it'll stand up, I can just slice off a bit ...
- Another pancake thing - a pancake batter "pen" so you can draw shapes on the griddle. Wouldn't any old squeeze bottle do just fine, or a piping bag, or even a plastic bag with the corner cut off?
What products do you see that mystify you that someone geared up a factory to make?
