This sleek little tool is an egg lover's dream come true. Perfect for serving soft-boiled eggs in their shells, it effortlessly slices off a neat top section of shell, giving you easy access to the silken white and creamy golden yolk inside. No more egg shells for breakfast!

  • Efficient tool cleanly cracks the top of an egg shell, ready to be lifted off with a knife or by hand.
  • Simply place the topper on your boiled egg, pull the handle up, then release – the spring-loaded mechanism causes just enough vibration for the sharp blade to cut through the shell.
  • Made of durable 18/10 stainless steel.
  • Designed by the German company Rösle, manufacturers of top-quality kitchen tools since 1903.

  • 5 1/4" long.

  • Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great! I bought this for my husband who is, shall we say, soft boiled egg shell challenged. I really thought it was going to be just another unnecessary device in my kitchen drawer. However, much to my delight, this item works just as described - every time! I am really glad I took the risk.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous egg topper The Rosle Egg Topper cuts the top off my soft boiled eggs with a nice clean edge. I'm really happy with this device. One of the earlier reviewers wrote excellent instructions; follow them and you will have excellent results. It's important to use the thumb and forefinger to hold the device on the egg, pull the trigger and let it really snap down on the egg.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not Quite Sure About This Read all the reviews and since my boyfriend and I love our soft-boiled eggs, buying this item was a no-brainer. So excited when we got it and used it right upon its delivery. Perhaps we're incompetent soft boiled egg crackers, but this egg topper didn't work out for us. Each of us tried on several eggs, and, nothing. The topper made a perfect cut on the egg (After a few pulling attempts) but the egg shell does not come off easy AT ALL. Several other eggs just had a super cracked upper half, and, again, super tough to peel the shell off the egg. If anyone has tips - please sent them my way!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works Perfectly - Thank You to Orange Co. Reviewer The reviewer from Orange County is correct - there are absolutely no instructions with this gem. I bought it based on his review & I used my Snag-It to copy & e-mail myself his instructions. Thank goodness for GreyxTawn's review. It works perfectly. And as he said it best - the only negative is the lack of instructions, or I would have given it 5 stars.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely Perfect I use this all the time and it works perfectly EVERY SINGLE TIME. First time we used it, my girlfriend and I probably looked like chimps trying to figure out how to use a computer. Once we figured it out, we have never looked back. The one knock on it is the complete lack of instructions. I am convinced that every reviewer on here who is one-starring is not using it properly, so to help everyone: -Make sure the egg is in an egg cup -firmly place the topper on the top of the egg holding it down with your thumb and fore-finger -use your other hand to pull back the handle -release When done properly, one snap of the handle does the trick The variable here is the pressure you press the topper to the egg with. You will have to learn the appropriate pressure as too much can crack the entire egg. Once figured out, this became my single favorite kitchen tool.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Absolutely useless This item is a yoke! Sorry for the pun I mean joke! It basically cuts into the egg and splits it wide open. Don't waste your money like I did.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Does not work Either does nothing (?too gentle) or crushes the egg with it spilling all over. Should one use it on the rounded end or the pointed end for better results?? White shell or brown? Returned.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great This replaced the scissor type we had. The Scissor type always left small shell bits. This one breaks clean with no small bits.
