Eggletts

Has anybody bought these. How do they work. Do they work like they say. Are they worth it. Thanks in advance.

they are ok

Bought them earlier this year. They work, but the egg sticks unless you saturate the inside of the Egglet with a lot of oil. Then, the eggs taste oily. They do not boil any faster than the old way. The only advantage is the lack of a shell to peel off the boiled egg.

We bought a few different sets and found the cheap ones are a lower grade silicone and dont release well. A more expensive set which was a better grade works perfect every time without any type of coating to get the eggs to release.

For me anyway, that no peel is the exact reason I would buy one.

For the life of me, I love hard boiled eggs.....but end up ripping them to pieces trying to get the shell off.

I tried it all......cool water bath, cold water, fresh eggs, boil xx minutes, quick dunk, allow to come to room temp..ice water, crack on one end.......egads.....no go.

I want an egglett!!!

Egglettes

Small amount of generic spray oil - we love them - as others have said the only advantage is no shell to peel and not a big deal is the flat end is flatter ( not as pretty for ď deviled eggs ) Les

The fresher the egg, the more difficult it will be to peel... We sometimes get eggs from a farmer that are that day or possible one day...very difficult to peel... older eggs are much easier..

Buy eggs from a grocery store The older the easier to peel.. Old eggs float. New eggs do not.

I buy very fresh eggs from a farmer. So I do understand the peel the egg and throw most of it out dilemna

Ah ha......older eggs.....

How old?....how can you determine the age of eggs in the shell?
Or just buy a dozen and let em age for several days?

I up for any trick to make the shelling easier, and to keep the egg in one piece.

Fresh eggs sink to the bottom of a water filled bowl like a rock. The older the eggs the more buoyant they become. First they will sink slower and slower as they age then once they are almost too old they will float. Iím careful with eggs that float, they are soon to or already spoiled.
