Today at the op shop I came across these things called Eggies. They were only a dollar, because it was half price day, and I thought it might be fun to try them out.
While the idea of boiled eggs that you don’t need to peel sounds great, as you may imagine the reality was quite different. I must say, I went into my little experiment quite positive.
Then I tried to put the little Eggies together. The main body was a bit fiddly but nothing compared to the hell of trying to screw the little lids closed once I had broken an egg into each one. It took ages and was fairly frustrating and I can honestly say that it takes less time to just peel your boiled eggs the usual way.
During the boiling process there was some leakage of whites into the water and also removal of the eggs from the Eggies once cooked was also a bit difficult. So if you ever come across the contraptions of calamity, leave well alone 😉 xo
