    Today's nominee is the Bacon Bonanza. I do like the idea of it keeping the bacon straight but it's main selling point is less "less fat and calories". Really ? I highly doubt it. Frying bacon in a pan most of the grease is left in the pan anyway and you put it on paper towels that soak up any extra. Plus, everyone knows bacon splatters, which would make quite a mess inside your oven. Not to mention that if you're concerned about calories and fat you probably shouldn't be eating bacon to begin with.

    I think I'll not waste my money and stick with pan frying with a screen on top.

    That actually looks like a good product.

    It was so weird that it made a very small appearance in the film Fight Club.

    Not a consumer product you can buy but I think all of the pharmaceutical commercials for various drugs are horribly stupid marketing products. The names, the symbols etc. They all have the same feel, I think they must be done by the same ad agency.

    BTW bacon on a griddle outside FTW.

    You'll want to get the newer Blu Ray/4K rewinder. You can add in the Netflix rewinder for an additional $20.

    I hear they are coming out with a combo DVD-Blu-ray rewinder. Might want to hold off a little while.

    The dumbest thing about the drug commercials is they all now say something like "Don't take XYZ if you're allergic to XYZ or any of it's ingredients". How would one know what's in the drug ? Much less if they're allergic to it.

    It's a fairly recent phenomenon and I actually asked my primary doctor if there was a court case that ended with that being a new requirement. She had no clue but agreed it was stupid. I love my doctor :)

    And no, you can't use an old CD rewinder, the headspace is all wrong and you could blow yourself up.
