I've used this handly little device to make soft-boiled and hard-boiled eggs, and they have always come out perfect. Just drop it in the water and take the pan off the burner when the color advances to the point you want your eggs cooked.
Having cooked hard boiled eggs since I was 7, and being a decent cook, I have always been frustrated by my inability to get them PERFECT time after time. After all, what could be simpler? Yet, as we all know, it is not that simple...
This egg timer is thrown into the pan with the eggs, and is able to represent graphically (through the color change of the the resin block itself) the completion of the cooking process for the eggs that accompany it. Because it represents the full cooking history, is still works at any altitude, or through changes in burner control. Once the whole resin block has changed color, it is time to take the eggs out and throw them in cold (or icy) water.
The only thing this amazing little tool lacks is an audible timer - it would be great not to have to keep an eye on the color but be reminded of the right time when the eggs are due. Of course, monitoring the color directly allows you to aim for different outcomes in the consistency of the yokes as well, by removing the pan from heat when the color change reaches one of the several intermediate marking indicators. All in all, I give it a rare 5 stars!
But the horrible epoxy smell this thing gives off when it is sitting in boiling water worries me. Even after removing it from the water, the smell was still coming from the water, which means that the chemicals from this thing are leaching into the water, and probably into the eggs. Eggshells are porous, after all.
I let it sit by itself in boiling water for a while, hoping the smell would go away after a while, but it's not. I don't think I'll use it again, and would definitely not recommend it. Get a timer instead.
I truly love this gadget, and I hardly ever say that in reviews. It works without fail, it's easy to clean, is too small to create clutter, and it's inexpensive. What else could you want? You should definitely buy this, unless you don't boil eggs.
The first time we used the timer I got a headache from the plastic fumes smell. My husband did the next batch of eggs when I was out of the house and told me that the air still filled with the smell of burning plastic.
The eggs don't taste like the plastic smell, but I really hesitate to continue use of this gadget given the impact on my air quality and the worry about what it's dumping into the cooking water.
