So I'm in the drug store, and I see this product for perfect boiled eggs without the hassle of peeling. I've torn up more eggs than a fox in the hen house, so I'm all over that product.
Here's the box, being all about how wonderful it is. Perfect! Eggs! Every! Time!
Okay, you assemble the product (never a good step, when cooking is involved), crack open an egg and pour it in through a little hole in the top. Are you thinking, "Recipe for broken yolks"? 'Cause it was. Then you screw in the plug (another phrase you probably don't want to hear in cookery).
And here's the product in use. At least one of the capsules leaked. If what you want is fluffy boiled egg-white foam that collapses into yuck when removed from the heat, this product is for you!
And here's the end result. If your idea of a perfect boiled egg is a thing that looks like a prosthetic device for making Conehead puppets, then I have a whole box of molds for you.
Highly recommended under, as comedian Tom Lehrer used to say, under a somewhat bizarre set of circumstances. Otherwise, not.
