Rated 5 out of 5 by from "Eggspert" timer This little timer takes all the guess work out of perfectly boiled eggs. I like eggs boiled to different levels of hardness for different dishes. Boiling them for specific times isn't really effective for me because different pots, numbers of eggs, etc. can affect the outcome. But this little "egg" really thinks it's an egg! It really does "cook" exactly like the eggs in the pot with it. if you immerse the cooked eggs in cold water when they reach the level of hardness it shows, that's what you get! Have used one for twenty years. Love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can't live without this This is the best thing EVER for anyone who loves soft boiled eggs. Seriously. I love this thing so much - I use them as stocking stuffers during the holidays. I used to overcook eggs all the time, but not anymore. It makes my favorite breakfast perfect every single time!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful gadget! I am not really a gadget person, but this very small item is a must in the kitchen if you like eggs of all kinds! It "knows" when your egg is perfectly soft boiled, or hard, or medium. Think about it... heat sources are different, amount of water in the pan and number of eggs all affect how long it takes to make the perfect egg. Pop this baby in the pan and -voila - perfect eggs every time! LOVE it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best stocking stuffer! I just got this for Christmas and I love it! I'm horrible at cooking eggs in boiling water and always seem to overcook/undercook them. With this I get the PERFECT soft boiled egg every time! Definitely a must have for any egg lover out there!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great gadget This is not one of those gadgets that you'll use once and then bury in a drawer. I could never get my hard boiled eggs "just right" and this product does it for me. Takes out all of the guess work. It is absolutely worth the $5.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect!! This is perfect, every one should have one of this egg timer at home, I don’t have to worry anymore, or guess if the hard boil eggs are done or not

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Questionable Durability I left this in a pot overnight and now the edges are discolored and what looks to be separating where it's joined in the middle. I don't know if it affects the way it functions, but it has me concerned about under cooking the eggs or it's long term durability. It probably would last a long time without this mistreatment, I just happened to forget about it. It seems OK for now (I can't feel any cracks so maybe it's just in my head) but ime will tell.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It Really Works I had my doubts about this little gadget, but being that I was notoriously bad at one of the most simple kitchen tasks I decided to give it a go. Honestly, this thing works perfectly. I've used it tons of times now and I have never not found my eggs to be perfectly hard boiled. Just lay it in the pot & it does all the work & timekeeping for you. Definitely worth it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great gadget You know how sometimes you can make the perfect boiled egg, and then you forget what combination of time and temperature you used? I like this little gadget because I don't have to remember those details. Just make sure you dunk the eggs in a cold water bath as soon as the indicator reaches your preferred level.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Egg Timer I got one of these egg timers over 15 years ago and it is the best egg timer I have ever used. It is easy to read. When the egg is cooking the red part gets a darker red and that is how you know when it is done. I have since purchase one for each of my children to have at there homes. Great product and cheap.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Does Not Work Well, I found the egg timer while traveling across Canada and came across this gadget and decided to try it. It does not do what it is supposed to do, sorry. It did not change colors at all, water almost ran out on the pan and the color never came. Save you money, don't purchase.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed With all the great reviews, I thought this would be great. Maybe I just got a bad egg but as soon as the water boiled the egg timer indicated the eggs were hard boiled. Plus it made the water smell real funny. I will say the return process was hassle-free.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect eggs I can't believe how well this works. I'm someone that thought she knew when the eggs would be done, but ended up 3/4 of the time disappointed. My husband bought this for me and I have made the perfect hard boiled eggs.
