What is it four-part plastic containers that can be used to cook eggs

What does it claim? to allow you to cook hard-boiled eggs without the shells

Who tested it? Norfolk resident Jennifer Jameson

What Are The Instructions? The first thing you need to do before you use the Eggies is wash them. They can be placed in the top rack of the dishwasher. When you're ready to use them, you must coat the inside of the Eggies with either non-stick cooking spray or oil. DO NOT spray directly into the Eggies. Instead, spray onto a paper towel and evenly coat the inside of the top and bottom pieces.

Place the top half onto the bottom half, and secure the collar around both pieces. Remove the lid and crack eggs into the Eggies. Then screw the lid onto each one.

Now place your filled Eggies gently into the saucepan filled with warm water. Ensure that they are floating. Bring water to a boil for the time need to make the eggs you want.

Did it work? Jameson was not impressed. While she doesn't like having to peel hard boiled eggs, she said she found that easier to do than use the Eggies.

Her first complaint was having to wash all the small pieces that make up the Eggies. For the three eggs she made, she had to wash 12 pieces.

But her real problem came when she went to break the eggs and pour them into the Eggies. As she tried to do it , the eggs spilled over the sides of the Eggies and onto her counter. She cleaned it up quickly since her son Atticus is allergic to eggs.

She realized after they finished boiling that because so much of it spilled out she didn't have much egg left inside the Eggies. So it turns out her eggs she boiled and peeled the shells off looked a lot better than her Eggies.

She says for her Eggies are not worth all the work.

Cost/Availability? You can purchase a set of six Eggies for $9.99 at area Walgreen stores.
