To be filed under “WTF” and “Please, No” is a new gadget called the Egg Master that provides a novel if unsettling approach to preparing eggs.

Watching the video of the gadget in work, however, you may be reminded less of eggs and more of…well, something else.

[As the ‘cooking’ starts] a bulging yellow sac peers back at me. Minutes pass; the smell does not. Then, without warning, a flaccid, spongy log half jumps from the machine, writhing like an alien parasite in search of a host body. It’s horrifying, like a scene from The Lair of the White Worm.
Watch the video for yourself and see if you can stomach the Egg Master:
