Tater Mitts - who wants to be first?

I guess this belongs here, under jokes. I didn't see a "gadget" topic
So, does someone want to get them and let me know how they work?
Tater Mitts

What'll they come up with next?

They have the potential to make a great skin exfoliator - or a REALLY bad one!!!!!!!!

Wow. Up until about 3 years ago...every time I peeled potatoes my hands and arms would turn red and itch like crazy. My eyes would swell and also be beet red. If these really work I would have loved to have them!

Luckily now I can peel away with no side effects.

Might make a great dog grooming tool, too.

Wonder what Buck would look like with a shaved head. Hmmm.

ohhhh, I get a reaction to potatoes when I can them. It gets worse as the canning season progresses. I am okay for the first few canner loads, but later on, my hands get unbearably red and itchy


Yikes, 25 bucks??

It takes me about 8 seconds or less to use a veggie peeler to peel a potato. This would just be one more thing I need to find room for in my kitchen. Looks like it would be kind of fun to use though (maybe).

Looked like a Saturday Nite Live skit almost.

I loved the implicit suggestion that you cannot make potato salad or mashed potatoes without it!

Do you think when it starts to get old you wouldn't need parsley in your potatoes cos you'd have blue flecks through them instead? And would it take the 'eyes' out?
What they might be good for is taking the mud off shoes or boots! Then again they'd probably take the leather off as well!
