1. Heat the nonstick pan and the mold for about 30 seconds. Spray the mold and the with cooking spray.
2. Crack eggs in a small bowl (I use Costco extra large eggs for the mold), and scoop out the egg yolk with a large spoon & gently place an yolk in each eye. Then pour the egg whites into the rest of the mold.
3. Cook for 30 seconds on medium heat. Then pour able 2 tablespoons of water into the pan. Cover with a lid. Wait for about 2 minutes before you slide the egg from the pan onto a plate.
If you want the eggs well done, then cook it longer; if you like the york under cooked, be sure to turn heat off and transfer your eggs while the yolks are still sunny yellow.
I noticed that if I spray the cooking spray before each use, I don't have any problems with eggs sticking to the mold, so I could make eggs using the same mold for the entire family without any problems.
1) you need a pan slightly bigger than the mold, so probably an 8-inch pan would be best. I don't have one of those (that will be my next purchase) so I used a regular non-stick skiller (12in) and a small non stick skillet (6in).
In the 12in the 'shape' came out better, since the mold was able to sit flat, but took longer to cook due to size and by the time the whites were set it was slightly crispy on bottom, and the yolks were almost cooked through.
In the 6in pan the 'shape' didn't come out as great since the mold was curved upwards on edges which produced a bit of leakage and not quite defined mouth. However, the eggs cooked better if you like sunny-side up eggs.
2) I used extra large eggs (Costco's only size) and I am not sure using 2 large eggs would give you enough whites to fill the whole mold since my whites barely reached the edges.
3) It is very important that you preheat your pan, grease the mold AND then preheat the mold itself prior to adding eggs (instructions on package). I don't use 'cooking sprays' so I just used a pastry brush to brush coconut oil on it. This is a little time consuming so I would not suggest making these during a work/school day :)
4) when making additional skulls, make sure you wipe and remove any egg pieces that might have remained behind. If not, your next egg will probably stick to these and make it harder to unmold.
Hope this review helps :)
Ok- some tips. First, separate your eggs in to small prep bowls. Don't try to separate them as you pour them in to the mold. Second, BUTTER the mold. I butter all the inside surfaces. Even if you are using a nonstick pan, bring the pan to temperature BEFORE you put the mold in, and have some oil in pan (after the pan is hot- hot pan/cold oil- that's the rule to live by, apparently- no matter what surface you are cooking on). Let this little guy get very well set before you try to remove the mold. If you want firmer eggs, you can put a silicon pot lid over the mold- I use a small 6" one. It does make the yolks film over, but my kids like their eggs more solid, it still looks cute, and it's much easier to unmold.
I first heat the pan up with a bit of oil in it on med low heat
Next I take a brush and brush oil all over the form
I then put it into the pan for a minute and let it heat up
I divide the egg whites from the yokes and while holding down firmly on the form I pour in first the whites and then the yokes
(Unlike what others have found, normal sized eggs seemed find for filling out the form and I only used 2 eggs)
I keep the heat on medium since I do not like tough eggs and season with salt and pepper
After the whites are cooked a bit I take a teaspoon of water and poor it into the pan and cover it with a small stainless steel dome
I check on it after a minute and remove the form if the whites seem solid enough to stay in form
Continue cooking covered until cooked to the degree you prefer.
The first time I did these I tried to flip them and totally ruined the design. It may be possible to flip them, but it is beyond my ability and keep it looking anything like the design. I bought the owl, bunny and skull for my sister-in-law and the skull for myself. I have put the skull through the dishwasher 2 times and it has held up perfectly so far. I store it in a drawer pretty much flat so it will maintain a better seal on the pan.
I bought these 2 weeks before Christmas and they had a delivery date for around January 21st. I got all 4 of them days before Christmas. Super fast shipping for something I have had for weeks now that isn't even suppose to be delivered for about another week.
