We have several tips on making the perfect egg:
1. Open up the mold and wet the inside surface just in case your egg decides to stick (though it shouldn't).
2. Put in a hot egg. The shape of the mold will guide you as to how to place the egg. Here the top of the heart is wider in the bottom, so the fat end of the egg goes that way.
3. If you have egg white bits that got squished out at the sides, you can clean the ragged bits up with a sharp knife. If yolk gets squished out - chop up the egg for egg salad.
4. If you want colored eggs that are also molded, you need to add the coloring or dye before molding them. Presuming you are using a liquid type of coloring method (such as dunking the eggs in water with dye in it), if you put the eggs in a water bath after molding, the moisture will cause the eggs to swell back up, losing the molding detail.So, once you have peeled your eggs, instead of dunking them in plain hot water, put them in colored hot water until they have achieved the color you want. Then mold them as per above. The seam will show white, but the form and overall color are there.
Make sure not to damage the egg while removing the shell. You have to put it in the mold while still hot. It is impossible to peel it while hot so the trick is too peel it under running faucet. I place the egg in upright position and close it gently. It is OK to have some part of the egg to squeeze out, bigger egg is actually better than a small one to make sure you fill every nook of the mold. Snap the latch and place the egg in the refrigerator for about ten minutes. You can also color the egg if you immerse it into water with food color on it for a few minutes. Really fun, specially if you have kids in the house.
OH ALSO!!! I learned that after heating the eggs if you don't want to make more every time you can leave some hard boiled eggs in the shell and when your ready to make more molds just put the eggs in a bowel and microwave them for 1 min. then shell it and put it in the mold. It works just fine and is still yummy =)
As far as the eggs are concerned, it's been fun. I guess "they" got smart because the directions in Japanese now are also included in English. I boil my eggs and peel under as warm/hot of running water as I can tolerate. Then I get them into the mold. I have not done the cold water or ice bath, just let them cool at room temperature. Within 15 minutes they are done and they pop right out. I only use XL eggs or larger in my home, need the bigger size for better baking consistency so just don't bother with smaller eggs. And they've not been a problem in these molds. I have these as well as the car, fish, rabbit and bear molds. And the best part about it all? My 16 month old twin boys LOVE the shapes. They play with them and make them dance or zoom around before picking them apart and eating the pieces. I cut each egg in half and remove the yolk so that I'm only giving my boys the egg whites - for now.Read more ›
