Who likes peeling hardboiled eggs? It's time consuming, and there's always those left over shells. But Eggies promises to be a time saver. Just drop your yolk and egg white into the Eggie, and never peel a hardboiled egg again.
The infomercial says that hardboiled means hard work. Messy shells, broken whites, and you'll be peeling all night. Well not anymore. If the makers are right, Eggies are the easy way to cook hardboiled eggs without the shell. Don't let the silly name crack you up.
We dropped in the Whistle Stop to get give head chef James Slater a crack at it. He deals with batches and batches of eggs. "Twelve dozen, fourteen dozen everyday," says Slater.
Following instructions, our first order of business was to grease the Eggies. We then cracked and poured. It was tiring and our hands were left a little icky.
The full Eggies with their twisted tight collars, went into the boiling bathwater. After several minutes we noticed trouble in the bubbles. "I guess we didn't have the collar on tight enough and it capsized we lost one egg," says Slater.
After bringing the Eggies to a gentle boil, James was satisfied. He pulled them out and let them cool in the fridge a few minutes. We asked James his thoughts midway through the test. "I don't know if it's too time consuming, I may rather peel the egg," says Slater.
Once chilled, the eggs slipped nicely out of the Eggies. In your opinion is this a deal or dud? "It's a deal," says Slater.
Our expert says this would not be something he would buy to use in a restaurant. By the way, it cost us $10 bucks for six Eggies.
