Soft and hard boiled eggs cooked perfectly every time.
- Sits in pot with eggs and changes color as the eggs cook
- Graduated scale shows when eggs are soft, medium, hard and in-between
- Sensing heat instead of time just like the eggs
- Sensor accounts for number of eggs, amount of water and even altitude
- For best results use room temperature water and bring eggs and egg timer to a medium boil
- Can be difficult to see scale when under boiling water
- Allow to cool on counter; do not immerse in cold water with eggs
Works perfectly every time. Instead of a timer that relies on eggs taking a specific amount of time, the egg shaped timer sits inside the pot and determines doneness by sensing the heat. This is superior to a timer because it can compensate for variables such as number of eggs, amount of water and altitude.
One drawback is that the scale can be difficult to see under boiling water. And you need to check the timer regularly as there is no sound indicator to remind you that it has reached your desired degree of doneness.
