    Instead of removing my egg Turner during lockdown can I just unplug it

    I agree. Besides the fact it's one more thing that gets nasty goo, the goo on the plastic makes it slippery and the holes increases occurrences of leg injuries such as spraddle leg not to mention legs can get stuck in places they don't belong.
