Yes, I bought Eggies....no I didn't buy them off a infomercial. But I did get them in the 'As Seen on TV' section of the store.
We have a lot of eggs and we eat a lot of hardboiled eggs around here. The problem with making hardboiled eggs around here is we have fresh eggs and fresh eggs DO NOT peel very well.
So, all summer we have been seeing the infomercial for Eggies and they of course made it look SO easy. The kids would flip out every time they saw the commercial demanding that I buy them.
I finally broke down and purchased the box of 6 Eggies at Bed Bath & Beyond. I figured if they didn't work I could always return them. I haven't returned them but to be honest I do have mixed feelings about them.
First of all... there are
about a million 26 pieces and you have to assemble all 6 of the Eggies and take them apart to clean them every time you use it. That is a pain.
You also have to spread cooking spray, such as Pam, on all parts the egg will be touching. They don't tell you that on tv.
After you crack your egg into the Eggie you then drop them into a pot of boiling water.
So, basically your egg is boiling inside a little plastic egg. Easy Peasy. But....most of my Eggies seem to leak.
The egg spills out into the boiling water. I've used the Eggies 3 times now and 2 or 3 of them always leak. Which, I guess, is about the same as boiling an egg in the shell. A couple will always crack in the boiling water.
but there was no work in getting them out of the Eggies in the end. There is a great deal of work at the beginning so I guess it evens out. I hate peeling hard boiled eggs and usually end up throwing half an egg away because the shell will not easily peel off. My eggs usually end up looking like this and then I will sometimes just through it away....cause God knows I have another 6 dozen in the fridge.
So...do I recommend Eggies? I don't know to be honest with you. I'm going to try them a couple more times and we'll see.
Disclaimer: Eggies did not pay me to use their product. I wish they would have cause I'm out $10 and I'm not sure I like the product. I'm not bashing their product I'm just not sure I like it yet. Just being honest.
