I like to cook. Sometimes. When I do, I love stuff that makes it easy and/or fun. This is a fun tool that I grew up with. I can remember my dad using this timer to make his soft boiled eggs every weekend. I hate trying to time boiling eggs. I always lose track of when I start the timer. Does it start when the water boils or when I put the eggs in the water on the stove?
I love my Eggsact Eggtimer. You just set it in the pan along with the eggs.
Tip for hard boiled eggs: If you don't like them to crack when they boil...let them warm up to room temperature before you start boiling them.
Anyway, notice how nice and red the egg timer looks.
Now let the water boil baby!
You need not worry about overboiling. Well you probably could if you leave the house and go plant your vegetables in the garden. But if you hang out in the kitchen, unload the dishwasher, mop the floor, scrub the breakfast pan...and then check on the eggsact eggtimer....
Remember that nice red color? It is now totally dark. This means that they are done! If you want to make them medium or soft, then just boil the eggs until it reaches the marked lines on the egg. It's so easy!! So I'd show you the deviled eggs I made...but they didn't last long enough for me to take a picture!!
