Paragon Products’ EGG POD Passes the ‘One Million’ Mark


HONG KONG, January 18, 2021 – Paragon Products Ltd. announced today that it has shipped its one-millionth Egg Pod™ microwave egg cooker. This achievement comes as the advertising campaign for the product enters its second year as a nationally ranked winner.

The Egg Pod makes four, perfectly hard-boiled eggs in the microwave in minutes and then also quickly and easily removes the shells with just a few brisk shakes. It is distributed by E. Mishan & Sons, Inc. (“Emson”), a top firm in the ‘As Seen on TV’ industry, and supported by a Paragon-created television commercial that rocketed up the charts last year, eventually breaking into the national top 20 in July, according to independent monitoring firm DRMetrix.

“This is a testament to our product development team,” said Bill Quarless, co-founder of Paragon. “Our team set out to create the world’s first-ever egg cooker and peeler in one unit. After a year of development, prototyping and testing, we achieved our goal and the patent-pending Egg Pod was launched. Now, with our first million units shipped, we are very excited to reach this milestone.”

Egg Pod is the latest in a long line of hit products Paragon has launched during its 10-year history. Other well-known successes include the Bell+Howell TacLight™ flashlight and TacLantern™, Sharper Image® OwnZone™ wireless TV headphones, the RoboTwist™ electric jar opener and the Boom Touch™ portable speaker.
