This remarkable little timer uses temperature instead of time to perfectly gauge whether a boiled egg is soft, medium or hard. It absorbs heat exactly as an egg does, changing color from the outside edge in to show the level of doneness.

  • Rest this ingenious plastic egg on the pan bottom and it will change color as the boiling eggs progress from raw to soft, medium or hard boiled.
  • Adjusts automatically to the number of eggs and the level of water in the pot.
  • Easy to use and extremely reliable.

  • Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for use with induction Using my old method of bringing water with eggs to a boil and then removing from heat does not work with an induction cooktop since the water boils way too quickly. This egg timer to the rescue! Perfect hard boiled eggs every time.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Read reviews and was disappointed I bought this item a while back, and just got around to using it today. The pictures of each stage of cooking shown on the packaging is not what this item did. I wanted hard boiled eggs. I had my oven's timer on to make sure I didn't forget that I had something cooking on my stove, and I'd reset it every time I went to check the color of the timer. It was well over an hour before the timer finally turned dark, far longer than it would have taken to simply cook 8 eggs without it. I don't recommend this product and won't be using it again. It's easier just to set your oven timer, and go from there.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Hard Boiled Eggs! Ever time I want hard boiled eggs I use it. My eggs come out great and the yolks are yellow. As soon as the time turns black I take the eggs off the heat and put them in a bowl of cold ice water. Now I can not say if it works for the other uses. Note: I use cold eggs and cold water to start.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Egg perfect exactly! We buy free range egg's and if you ever over cook them the inside membrane becomes rubbery. Well no more thanks to the egg perfect timer! This thing works perfectly every-time. It's easy to use and i had no problems begin able to see it change colors. I have even recommend it to the farmer that we buy the egg's from as well.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works Well This items does work well. Make sure you know where the lines are before you start cooking - can be a little hard to see them once the change of color starts. Down side is it take awhile to cool down - so you are limited to once batch of eggs. I just used a larger pan to cook a dozen of them.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Egg-Ceptional....Not! You have to stand over the pot while the egg timer reaches your 'goal'. Soft boil or hard boiled, does not reach perfection.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best invention since sliced bread Worked so well, that I was totally blown away. Took a risk and bought extra for stocking stuffers. So glad I did.
