In the video that they play,at 35 seconds they show someone cutting potatoes, and yet the way theat they are cutting them looks very paniful!

Exclamation tater mitts

Don't bother with these. I received a pair from my aunt and made her return them. It is faster to use a peeler. You have to boil the potaoes first and then use the mitts. The skins block your drain and it is more of a mess. Certainly no worth 19.99.

If I boil potatoes whole, I remove the skins with a couple of sheets of paper towel. I put the potato in the paper towel and "wipe" off the skin. Works great and costs me a couple of sheets of paper towels.

Not to mention the amount of water being wasted whilst scrubbing away! Wonder if they'd be good for ... nah, can't think of anything!

What always crosses my mind when viewing infomertials for useless contraptions is, who thinks this stuff up and who funds it?

As regards the "snotty" egg separator, I've seen this before and rather like it, not as a serious kitchen implement of course, just as a fun item. At least it's interesting, in a funky sculptural sense, and could serve as a crock for small kitchen gadgets/teaspoons, as an herb pot, or just as an eccentric piece on a shelf!

But more importantly, it has great potential when trying to entertain the grandkids

Word is it only works on medium eggs or smaller and only some of the time.

I agree! What a waste of water! I live in Australia and pretty much our whole country is in drought and has been for years, just use a peeler!
