A kitchen gadget that accomplishes one thing infinitely well is often our desert-island, can’t-live-without-it tool we obsess over. Basically, we’re human and humans love tools. You know what else non-vegan humans love? Egg consumption. Naturally, there is a big overlap between helpful—and admittedly kind of weird—gadgets and chicken eggs. Eggs symbolize the circle of life, so it’s fitting that they bring a lot of frustration in the kitchen, as we work to boil them for the exact right amount of time, peel them without pitting them, poach them into puffs, and cut them into wedges and slices. There’s an egg gadget for every one of those situations and others, and don’t you know it, Amazon stocks these doodads in abundance. Below, the oddest single-use egg products on Amazon you’ll probably want right now.
