The PERFECT Hard Boiled Egg

I love eggs. Scrambled egg whites. Poached eggs. But I REALLY love hard boiled eggs. They're easy to make ahead of time and have for breakfast on a fast moving morning!

However, I'm not the kind of person who likes to leave things to chance.

I was screwing around in Crate and Barrel a while back and ran across this fabulous little gadget. And it's something I can trust to make the PERFECT hard boiled egg. If you're antsy about making runny eggs, too, you MUST try this out!!!
It's red when you start boiling eggs.
And by the time it's done, the egg timer turns black, letting you know it's PERFECT!
By the way, the whole time I've worked on this post, I keep singing "the incredible, edible egg" over and over again in my head. Eek!

I'm sharing this at Works for Me Wednesday, because guess what?! I'm making more!

This is awesome! I love eggs... my boyfriend HATES them. This is a helpful gadget especially since the only way a dozen eggs get used in our house is if I eat them and I don't ever have time for scrambling eggs in the AM.

I want one! It's hard boiled eggs and potatoes that are always tricky to boil! Thank heaven you perused C&B.

If only it beeped too, it would be the world's most perfect product.

My husband used to pass an egg council billboard that said I Love Eggs! Which of course we yelled at the top of our lungs every time we passed the billboard.

Then we saw it printed on semi trucks.

I love eggs!

Remember Ryan from DC? He worked PT at Crate and Barrel and gave his mom one of those for Christmas one year. I had totally forgotten about them, but I need to grab myself one!

I was so excited to see this post. We have this egg timer and LOVE It! I don't think I could boil eggs without it. I tried to get another one as a gift for a friend a while ago and couldn't find a seller.
It's such a great gadget. I'm a sucker or kitchen gadgets.
Happy Tuesday SITS!

We love hard boiled eggs, too, but I've found that a kitchen timer does the job just as well for me.

I put the eggs in the bottom of the pot, run cold water over them until they're covered by about an inch of water, and put them on the stove on full heat, uncovered. When the water is boiling, cover, remove from heat, and set the timer for 15 minutes. Immediately plunge in ice water after the 15 minutes. If you don't chill them right away, you get that green ring. This makes hard cooked eggs perfect every time.

A tablespoon of vinegar in the water will keep the whites from running out of an egg that happens to crack.
