The K-Tel/Popiel product was the Veg-o-matic, so Form-o-matic would
be a better replica.
You might like "formatic" or "formatica" - they seem to be more
tongue-friendly to me.

In my feeble mind, the word "zip" connected with anything computer
1) The infamous Zip-drive and it's click-of-death.
2) A file compression method.
If you really are stuck on zip, how about zap instead? Makes me think
of lightning. ;-)
