Picture this. You wake up in the morning and boil the water. You prepare the coffee, sugar, milk, and then with a push of a button, all ingredients mix together, creating your hot beverage for a great start to the day.
We bet the designer of this one was a real lazy bummer. I mean, it doesn’t take much to put a teaspoon in a mug and move it in a circle.

EZ Cracker by PJT ($15)
Once you hit adulthood, cracking an egg should be something you can do. But, there are plenty out there who still have trouble for one good reason or another. However, now the EZ Cracked from PJT means it has never been easier. The device is designed to crack the egg down the middle and drop the contents into your mixing bowl.
It's designed to do that, but reviews of the device on Amazon haven't been kind with reports of egg bits getting caught in the yolk and whites. One reviewer said the product “toyed with my emotions.” It seems even fifteen dollars is too much to shell out for this item.
