I got through the presentation, but only because I have this fascination about large scale preparation processes. I like to watch the machinery at work. Deck ovens, steam ovens, convection ovens, tilt skillets, aaaah!

I also have all of Julia Child's books on the shelf in my kitchen.

I enjoyed it! But I share KDP's Love of large kitchen systems! Did you get a look at that tilt skillet!
As for the video itself, The production values are high throughout. The music theme carried over the egg board's jingle from a national ad campaign. The script was concise, If maybe a little repetitive and dated. Did you notice how often he said to UNDER cook your eggs?!,Sure don't comply with today's ever present warnings to cook everything to a minimum temp. of 1,650 Deg. now do it? :lol: :coolsmile:

I vote this one for most boring commercial:

If you really watch the entire 10 minute long version of this commercial you will never have those minutes back. You have been warned and might need the product after beating your head against the wall for watching.

Actually, I found it quite soothing, but then again, I am an chicken farmer. The mellow baritone of 1982 television experts, mixed with the very same Muzak that was playing in the elevator when I was brought out of the nursery, was bound to have that effect.

The reason he says to undercook the egg is that it is then going to be served, which can take up to 4 minutes. He mentions it once, but an egg will continue to cook even when removed from heat. If you have ever had tough eggs that are rough on the outside, this was someone cooking the eggs until they 'look' done, and the subsequent radiation overcooks the eggs before you can put a fork in them.
