1. Eggs will hard boil better if they are at least two weeks old.
2. The quicker that you cube the egg after it is cooked the squarer the yolk will be.
3. It is best to cool the egg (in ice water) after it is in the mold for 10 or 15 minutes.
I thought that a video review could better show how to use this little gadget. I have used it to make appetizers however I think that it would also be great for lunch and Bento boxes. I hope that this review is helpful to you.
Square Egg Ring, Stainless Steel, 4 x 4''
The shipping of this item was fairly quick- I received it 3 days after I ordered it. The packaging wasn't the best though- it was practically falling out of a thin cardboard envelope with fold in flaps (it arrived unscathed).
The cuber itself is very easy to use- it is only 4 pieces total- the "frame", a flat square that goes on the inside bottom, the piece that presses the egg down, and screw top that presses that piece into the egg. When you pull the egg out, it is a good idea to start to cool it in your fridge/freezer immediately or it might start to bulge out in one side.
I have used this many times over the months- whether for cubing an egg for my lunch bento or making deviled eggs. If working on more than one egg it does require lots of patience, but I find it enjoyable. Also, I recommend medium eggs- you don't want small or jumbos.
To cube mass amounts of eggs (I only do this for deviled eggs), I set up an "assembly line" in my kitchen sink.
First, I chill the cuber in the freezer for 20 minutes.
Then, fill up a single serving sized soup tupperware 2/3 with ice, and the rest of the way with ice cold water.
Peel your egg, put it in the press, dip it into the ice cold water and let it sit at least 30 seconds. I start peeling the 2nd egg during this time. Pull the cubed egg out of the press and submerge it in the ice water. Then pop the 2nd egg in the cuber. When I get to my 3rd egg, I pull the 1st one out of the water and set it on a paper towel to set.Read more ›
When the eggs finished, I peeled and cubed each egg one at a time. I noticed that if the eggs were still hot when I decanted them from the press, the egg would spring back to a more rounded shape, so while each egg was inside, I dunked the bottom part of the cuber (up to the bottom edge of the lid) into the ice water for 1-2 minutes. Then I decanted the cubed egg, put it on a plate, peeled the next, stuck it in the cuber, dunked the cuber into the ice water, etc. I was able to cube all six eggs with no problem. The last egg was plenty hot when I cubed it, so probably I could have cubed more.
The longer the press was dunked in the ice water, the better the eggs held their cubed shape. I'll probably experiment to see if I can get the corners and edges sharper, but with the above procedure, the eggs were cubical enough to surprise my kids.
It makes particularly interesting Chinese Tea eggs. After hardboiling regular eggs, crack the shells but dont peel them. Now make some very strong tea or add other spices you like or even food coloring. Now, reboil the cracked cooked eggs for about an hour. When they have taken on adequate color through the cracks in the shells, peel one and use the egg squarer on it. I put the squarer in ice water to chill out while the other tea eggs continue to simmer and take on more color and flavor. One at a time I square them while doing cutting kneeding and other prep work in the kitchen. Eventually, very pretty colored square eggs, but you need to be doing other stuff too because it takes several minutes for each egg to cool adequately to hold its shape.
Even the Easter Bunny would be proud of these colorful eggs that wont roll away. Guaranteed to break the ice at your next party, or get a smile from your favorite sweetie.
