Have you seen these? Seen the infomercial? Why fuss over removing the shells from boiled eggs when you can boil them without the shell? Hummmm, thought I.
So I picked up my computer and I found them. I ordered them. I love new stuff that saves me work or makes a time-consuming chore less so.
How do they work? (I heard you ask.)
1) break an egg in the plastic egg-shaped 4 piece container, which you have sprayed lightly with cooking spray
2) assemble the container...set the top on the bottom, (which is holding the egg)
attach the middle ring, which holds everything together
Screw the little top holder in place (the top has a little handle)
3) drop into nearly boiling water of at least 2.5 inches in depth
4) when water begins to boil, set your timer according to egg size from the enclosed chart.
Maybe the best part is that when they are done, they really do just pop out of the holder!
Wow, I thought, how cool to have boiled eggs with no shell to remove and cooked perfectly every time. I ordered some for me and some extra ones for gifts.
I used them as soon as they arrived. Very easy to understand instructions, very easy to clean parts~and the eggs? They are odd looking, flat bottoms, but perfect.
I believe I am a pretty average buyer, though I admit I am a sucker for kitchen gadgets! If it's fun to use and makes my cooking easier, I want to try it. The EGGIES, satisfied both of these requirements. Lots of boiled eggs with no mess to clean up except washing out the cups, which cleaned up easily.
You can also scramble the eggs before cooking and season to your taste or you can add omelet ingredients in a bowl and pour them into the Eggies. I would assemble first including the middle ring before doing this one, then you can make them a little bigger! The texture of the scrambled egg is a little airy when cooked, but the taste is good. I am more a of fan of the basic boiled egg.
The cost was very reasonable, I ordered from two different online catalog stores and the price was the same from each. Harriet Carter got them here more quickly than the other source, but both came within 10 days of ordering. Both cost less than $12 including shipping.
If you use a lot of boiled eggs, I do in the summer on a lot of salads and deviled eggs for potlucks or picnics, you will absolutely love these little guys. I am probably never going to boil another egg in it's shell!
Go ahead...pick up that computer and search EGGIES...I'm betting you're gonna love 'em!
