5.0 out of 5 stars Very simple, 10 Nov 2007
There doesn't appear to be an explanation for this egg timer so I'll write one.

You drop the rubbery egg timer into the pan of water, along with the eggs (it's shaped like an egg but the back is flat so it sits on the bottom of a pan of water). As the water boils, the egg timer slowly changes colour - a dark outer ring slowly shrinks towards the centre of the egg. As the band shrinks, it hits the white labels - soft, medium, hard. All you do is keep an eye on the pot and take the eggs out when the dark ring crosses the white line that matches your chosen cooked egg type. Simple!

This is the best egg timer I've ever used. Okay, the alternatives (hourglass, watch, guesstimate) do much the same thing but these bad boys allow you to cook soft, medium and hard boiled eggs, regardless of how fast the water is boiling, regardless of the size of the pan or even how many eggs you're cooking at once.

Sure you need to keep an occasional eye on the pan and yes, they do melt if the water boils dry, but even so, they're worth every penny if (like me) you despise dunking soldiers into hard eggs. I've had one for years and used it loads, and everyone who see me using it wants one - a nice Christmas stocking filler m'thinks!
