No matter which mold you choose, you’ll end up with an adorable egg that will get kids excited and adults saying, “5 stars. Would mold again.”

This little device very accurately measures how much propane is left in the tank. All you have to do is hook it on and lift the tank a few inches. Unlike many of the other gauges on the market, the Original Grill Gauge’s auto-check indicator will maintain its reading even after you put the tank down!

The blade has a very shallow design, so whatever you’re opening is safe from damage, and it’s the size of pen, making it very portable.
