Eggies Egg Cooker

1This As Seen on TV kitchen product promises to be a simpler solution for making hard boiled eggs without the fuss of peeling their shells once they’re done, and without the frustration of realizing you can never peel them in a perfect shape. The point is that you just crack the egg while it’s still raw, pour it in the mold and cook it. After boiling, you’re supposed to just twist the shape to let the egg loose and enjoy perfectly-shaped boiled eggs for a variety of recipes. Let’s see if it’s as simple or efficient as it sounds.

Features

The Eggies Egg Cooker is a set that contains tow plastic sides that come together to contain the eggs while boiling, then come off again to release them once they’re boiled. No need to concern yourself with peeling anymore and this seems to be the main point of the product. Since the eggs are added raw to the device, another interesting perk is that you can spice them or add a bit of various flavorings from the cooking stage. You can buy this kitchen gizmo on Amazon.

Reasons to Buy the Eggies Egg Cooker

It’s reasonably priced, looks fun to use together with kids to involve them in preparing dinner (and perhaps convince them to eat since they’ve played around a bit with preparing it) and it doesn’t hurt to give them a try. Another sensible thing to consider is that if you’re really busy or clumsy (like if you babysit or if you have some mobility issues that make egg peeling problematic), this is a very good reason to get this product to make your life easier. Perhaps another good reason to give the product a chance it that you may find yourself, at times, needing to cook a lot of hard boiled eggs at once for different dishes (Scotch eggs, deviled eggs, egg salad and so on) and simply don’t have the time or the patience to peel the shell off of all. Thus, using the Eggies Egg Cooker might just save you all that time and effort you would normally need.

Customer Issues and Concerns

This is where it gets a bit unpleasant, because there have been more than one slight malfunction reported about this product. Many people reported that the eggs may drip while cooking and come off in weird shapes because of it, that the time required to boil them is way longer than cooking them in the shell, or that the device is so difficult to clean that maybe it would have just been easier to peel those shells in the first place. Even worse, the yolk becomes mixed with the whites in some unappetizing threads and the device is far from being non-stick as the manufacturer claims. Quite a number of people are also cautious about the product being made from plastic as that may have potentially harmful health effects in combination with the high heat. Still, there were still a few customers who were satisfied with the Eggies Egg Cooker and said that overall it’s less messy than simply cooking eggs the traditional way. The bad news is that there are more unsatisfied customers than satisfied ones, so it would be safe to assume that the product isn’t really a success.

The Verdict

3You probably won’t cook eggs on a really industrial scale, and therefore you won’t need such a gadget more often than a rare once in a while. In the rest of the time, it will just occupy space in your already crowded cupboard, along with the rest of the kitchen gizmos that seemed like a good idea at some point. We’re not saying that you shouldn’t buy it, but perhaps just give it a very good and cold consideration before deciding. Do you really need another kitchen thingy like this one? If the answer is yes and you’re willing to turn a blind eye to all the potential glitches that others have complained about, then, by all means, give it a go. It wouldn’t be a complete waste of money, but we’re not enthusiastic about it either. Maybe a more satisfying alternative would be to turn to a kitchen appliance designed for cooking eggs, only a bit more expensive than this product and with far fewer issues.

 

Heeltastic Intensive Heel Therapy

1From all the cosmetic products that the industry has to offer, heel treatment products seem to be the most prone to disappoint. That’s probably not because foot creams and heel treatments in general are bad or at least worse than other care products, but because the area itself is a very delicate one. Being very exposed to dryness and cracks, highly used during daily life, prone to get hardened up and thus less open to any external attempts to moisturize it, the skin on our feet and heels quickly turns into a problem area. This is why we need our foot care products to be really good, and we’re more likely to be disappointed in them, but also to be really excited when we find one that finally works and restores our skin. The Heeltastic Intensive Heel Therapy promises to be one of those wonder products that will not only fail to disappoint, but will work so well that we’ll never need to switch it for a different one ever again. Let’s see if those claims have any truth to them.

Features

This As Seen on TV product comes in the shape of a care stick with a concentrated formula that needs to be applied on really dry areas, mainly the heels and soles. Its primary ingredients are natural neem and karanja oils, doubled with anti-bacterial and anti-fungal substances. Therefore, the Heeltastic Intensive Heel Therapy not only nourishes and restores, but also protects the feet from bacterial infections and funguses that often target the feet and toe areas. The intensive care stick can also be applied to other dry problem areas, like the elbows, hands (if they’re extremely dry), rough knees and so on. It even works its magic on dried up cuticles, so it may be an unexpected manicure helper. The reviews all seem positive and confirm these claims, while the product’s price is also more than reasonable. You can buy it from Amazon.

Reasons to Buy the Heeltastic Intensive Heel Therapy

There have been reviewing customers that reported having used this product for years and being completely satisfied with it. The results appear as fast as after only two days or nights of use, even in the worst dryness cases. Obviously, as any other skin care product, the most effective intensive use is over-night. Another reported plus of the Heeltastic Intensive Heel Therapy is the fact that it’s super convenient to apply because of its concentrated stick shape. There’s also hardly a need to get the product on your hands, so you can avoid spreading it on your palms if you plan to use them for other products as part of your care routine and don’t want to mix stuff together. Another reported plus is that the product was satisfying even to people with serious medical conditions with their feet (up to the point where the dryness and cracks were so severe that there was bleeding and hurting upon walking), as well as to people who have had a bad experience with similarly advertised products.

Customer Issues and Concerns

Some customers with a more sensitive sense of smell complained that the product’s scent, while definitely pleasant, is a tad too strong. A few have called the scent too medicinal-like or simply annoying. Another few have complained about the weird color. But there were no reports about the product not delivering the promised effect, so we see no serious drawbacks here.

The Verdict

If you’re bored with the routine required to keep your soles and heels barely in a presentable shape, then this product is definitely right for you. As long as you’re not over-sensitive about strong herbal scents, or you’re willing to tolerate them for the greater good of your skin, you should by all means go ahead and try this out. We’ve rarely seen an As Seen on TV product with so intensely positive reviews, and its price is completely comparable to similar products in stores if not even a bit lower. All in all, we can think of no reason not to try this product if you’re having issues with dry skin or worse, with dryness-fueled bacterial or fungi infections – on your heels or elsewhere on the body.

Hip-T: The Layering Accessory for Your Hips, “Cover Your Assets”

0This looks like an awesome clothing accessory to cover up you middle line and prevent those low waist jeans to awkwardly show off a few inches of skin from your midriff. Sadly, the fashion nowadays has its fair share of disadvantages, and one of these is the fact that the combination between low waist jeans and short tops often produces a disastrous effect: either a so-called “back cleavage” where your panties or worse become visible, or a “muffin top” effect when the tightness of the jeans causes the skin directly above them to make you look as if you’re chubbier than in reality. But an advantage of current fashion trends is the layered look in which one can create an awesome effect by wearing multiple clothes of different lengths one on top of the other. The bigger the contrast (for best matches, contrasting colors are desirable), the more awesome the result. Do you already see where this is going? You can take advantage of the layering trend to compensate the low waist misdemeanors. Read on to find out how.

Features

The Hip-T accessory is basically a tight fabric that is meant to be places on top of your jeans and pants and underneath your top or blouse. This way, it looks as if you’re wearing another longer blouse underneath, but it saves you the bulk or extra heat of actually wearing one. It comes in multiple colors and sizes and you can use various combinations to create many hip outfits and looks. Most importantly, the accessory promises to protect you from displaying underwear slips, muffin tops and backside cleavages. It can also be reversed and used as a camisole and by covering up those few inches of skin, it also promises to keep you warmer during the winter. The product may be purchased from Amazon.

Reasons to Buy the Hip-T Layering Accessory for Your Hips

This As Seen On TV product manages to do what t promises: it provides the wearer with an ingenious way to cover up those few midriff inches that are often visible because of our low waist jeans, thus saving the customer from quite a number of potentially embarrassing or at least awkward situations. The fabric is soft cotton, the wear is seamless and it looks good. It’s also reasonably priced so adding it to your wardrobe shouldn’t be a problem if the idea sounds good to you.

Customer Issues and Concerns

There have been a few complaints about the product not staying put and instead “riding up” the wearer’s body during walk or movement. However, other customers, who were perfectly satisfied with the product, pointed out that the ones who weren’t had probably ordered the wrong size. Our opinion is consistent with this last observation. To make sure your Hip-T Layering Accessory is the right fit, order it a size smaller than your tops and blouses, to make sure it fits you really tight. This way, it will stay put and really protect your midline. The good news is that there are no other potential concerns except this fitting thing, so if you’re careful to order a smaller size that should be all.

2

The Verdict

In conclusion, the Hip-T Layering Accessory for Your Hips is a good idea overall. To avoid any potential discontent, don’t forget to order a small and tight-fitting size. Many customers were pretty excited about the various colors and the potential combinations deriving from them and ended up ordering more, as well as wearing the accessory every day. We confirm that it can keep one warm and comfortable during cold days, not to mention the comfort that comes with knowing that you won’t show off any midline skin if you don’t want it to show. It also looks seamless and flattering and provides the wearer’s body with a slimming visual effect. If you’ve felt discomfort about your jeans having their waist too low and your tops being too short and all those unflattering visuals that may come from this, then the Hip-T Layering Accessory for Your Hips is the right choice for you.

MSA 30X Sound Amplifier – Discreet Sound Amplifier

1This sounds like a really nice product to help people with hearing problems overcome their fading sense of hearing. Not precisely a high-precision gadget targeting people who are really deaf, but more of a welcome help for people experiencing mild to moderate issues with hearing (mostly old people, since such issues come with age usually, but not limited to them). It is advertised as a cheaper alternative or back-up for traditional hearing aids. Considering that hearing problems are almost unavoidable as your age advances or if you have the misfortune to suffer any accident that affects your ear, the release of this product should be pretty good news. Let’s see if it rises up to the expectations.

Features

This small and skin-colored (assuming you’re Caucasian or relatively fair-skinned) gadget promises to be lightweight and comfortable while providing sound amplification by 30 times your default hearing level. Other bonus points advertised by the company producing it are its discreet appearance (it’s considerably smaller than similar products, skin-colored and with invisible clear tubing) and the fact it is rechargeable (saving you the money you would normally spend on batteries). It’s designed to fit both your left ear or your right ear, its volume control is adjustable and it’s FDA listed and approved.

2

When you order the product, the box contains the MSA 30X Sound Amplifier, along with six silicone ear buds, a charging cradle, a cleaning brush and an adaptor. All in all, everything seems to be alright as far as product function and integrity are concerned. You can find this product on the manufacturer’s website and on Amazon as well.

Reasons to Buy the MSA 30X Sound Amplifier

Some buyers are inclined to point out that the device isn’t a hearing aid, but plainly a sound amplifier, which means that it will also amplify the background noise, and that you shouldn’t expect it to compare to traditional and (way) more expensive hearing aids. But while taking the time to point this out, all customers seem to agree that for its low price, the product does all that it promises to do and that it’s definitely worth it, again, for its price.

Another advantage of the gadget is that it has a great battery life and lasts almost all day, while the expensive hearing aids only last 1-2 hours.

Customer Issues and Concerns

The biggest issue clients complained about was the high background noise that the device also reproduces. But it seems to be fine if you use it on low volume (which means not amplifying all the way up to 30 times more). Still, there were a few customers who found the noise unbearable even on low volume settings. And there are some who argue that a device that doesn’t filer noise and adapt the sounds to an according level can actually damage your hearing even more over time. Perhaps consult your doctor if you feel any ear pain. But then again, quite some people didn’t even complain of mild discomfort, so don’t knock it until you’ve tried it.

Another potential issue is the fact that when you buy the product from the manufacturer’s site, you’re forced to buy 2 products at once, which can make some people feel ripped off or scammed. There were no problems, however, when purchasing it from Amazon, so maybe stick with them if you plan to give it a try.

The last thing to mention isn’t really an issue but a heads-up: if you buy it, make sure you fully seat the device in the charging base for it to actually charge. Some customers didn’t catch on to this from the start and had to figure it out.

3

The Verdict

Because the device also amplifies background noise, it may only be suitable to people with minor hearing problems, who don’t need to turn up the volume to a too high level. The noise doesn’t filtered well when you turn up the volume and it may become a problem, but for the clients with mild hearing issues it seems to work better than the expensive gadgets, if only because the longer battery life. Everyone agrees that it’s definitely worth the money it demands and more; because usually products like this are much higher priced. For minor hearing issues you should be more than satisfied with the product overall.
