Just put it in the pan with the eggs and watch the color change. When the darker color gets to the first line, start the toast. When the color gets to the second line, crack the eggs onto the toast and you have a great start on breakfast. Only thing this device does not compensate for is the size of the eggs, once you figure that out you have a very useful kitchen gadget. We love it.
I got this for my 10 year old who is becoming quite the independent chef. Hard boiled eggs are a staple in our household but timing them right was difficult for my daughter. She loves her new gadget and we are never short on perfectly hard boiled eggs!
Makes making hard boiled eggs accurate and easy.
I have wasted too many eggs with cold starts etc! This has never failed to give me perfect eggs! (Just wish it would peel them). It will take ‘calibrating’ if you use extra large eggs…. But my large eggs are always perfect! The color change indicates hard (or yolk of choice) and I transfer them to an ice bath. I gave my first one away… and ordered another right away! A MUST HAVE- especially for Easter! ;)
This works great that when my old one gave out after 10+ years I bought another one. Just keep it with the eggs, and you don't have to worry about how cold the eggs are when you start cooking them because the egg timer has been just as cold (or warm) for just as long.
Just a few bucks for such a simple and essential kitchen tool. Just get one and you’ll be hooked, too!
Great purchase! I get perfect soft boiled eggs for my ramen every time! Without question!
I use it all the time when boiling my eggs. Good product.
It works as promised. My eggs come out just the way I want them.
We had one of these for 15 years and just had to replace it because it split apart. 15 years of boiling is pretty impressive! It always accurately shows how done the eggs are - no guessing needed.
Takes all the guess work out of cooking hardboiled eggs.
This was a replacement for the one I had. I dropped it on a concrete floor and it broke. I love this egg timer. Perfect every time.
Excellent product!!! Super practical! You become a hard boiled egg pro!
Never guess about eggs again. It's easy to see how cooked the eggs are with this tool. Just drop it in with your eggs and watch the heat penitrate. I bought one 15 years ago and used it over and over. When it finaly got cloudy I didn't hesitate to purchase a new one.
Intuitive display. Stores easily
However you like your eggs, this is a great temperature regulator. Once you determine the way you want your egg cooked, you can have it exactly the same every time. Perfect for soft boiled.
This thing works great. Just drop in the pot of water you're hard boiling eggs in and just watch the line move to your desired hardness. Had one for many years and just had to replace it.
This egg timer is accurate and easy to use
I haven't managed to break one, but keep buying more to give away away to friends who want to know the secret of actually making medium-boiled eggs.
I love this thing, I never boil eggs without it. My first one lasted over a decade, not sure exactly how long I've had it, the color disk eventually faded, so I'm getting another.
If you have friends/family/co-workers you suspect will be impressed by the consistency of your egg snacks, save yourself some "buy it again" clicks and get 2+ in the first place. As long as you want those people to know your secret. :)
I love using this and I make more hard boiled eggs than I’d like to admit. But it’s very accurate and easy to read.
The perfect helper to make perfect eggs
Can’t believe I didn’t have this in my kitchen sooner. My son loved hard boiled eggs with ramen, even with the timer i’ve gotten them out when medium hard. Found this ingenious product through a post in reddit in r/didntknowiwantedthat. So far i’ve tried soft and hard boiled and they come out perfect everytime. A must have in every kitchen.
Husband wanted a soft boiled egg. Turned out perfectly!
My wife had a very similar timer for years and years. It had started to discolor from its age and use. I replaced it with this “timer.” It works beautifully. And the wife is very pleased with this product. Happy wife equals happy wife!
I love making boiled eggs now….no more guessing and having to throw eggs away!!
I have bought this product several times over a a number of years and the eggs are always perfect. I eat boiled eggs every day, and this product last for many months with usage a couple times a week.
I make deviled eggs often and hard boiled eggs in my salads, this item makes it much more easier
Easy to use, perfect soft boiled eggs everytime and i never have an overcooked egg anymore. worth the purchase
No guess work involved. Makes it easy to know when eggs are done. I’ve purchased this product in the past and was delighted to find another one.
It may take a time or two to find where you like the soft boiled egg to stop but once that's figured out it's a great tool. I've never been disappointed with the results when using this item.
