Egg Magic is a device that will enable you to peel your hard-boiled eggs without destroying them, hurting your hands or ending up with stray eggshell pieces in your food. Placing each egg in this device, adding water and giving it a shake will allow you to peel each egg in seconds, so you'll be able to make dishes containing eggs more quickly than usual. This will be a great incentive to eat more eggs and thereby add more protein to your diet.
The cost of Egg Magic is $14.99 plus $6.99 shipping. The special TV offer allows you to receive a second Egg Magic at the discounted price of only $6.99 for a total price of $28.97. This price was obtained from the As Seen on TV commercial page found at buyeggmagic.com; however, the company has since ceased selling Egg Magic and has taken down the website. Egg Magic may still be found for sale on Amazon or Ebay.
To peel the shell of your first boiled egg with your Egg Magic, gently place the hard-boiled egg in your device's carafe.
Next, add water to the carafe so it's about one-third full of water.
After you've added water, put the red plastic lid on the carafe and shake it gently. As you do so, the shell of your egg will separate from the edible contents inside.
Once your egg is completely free of its shell, stop shaking your Egg Magic and open the lid. Pull out your shell-free boiled egg and then dispose of the stray eggshell pieces left behind in a place of your choosing.
About one-third of the way up from the bottom, each Egg Magic carafe contains a ridge (that's why the device should be filled about one-third full of water). When you shake your device, this ridge will cause the shell of the egg within to separate from its membrane, a thin film that lies between an egg's shell and the edible portion. Following that separation, the hard-boiled egg within will be free to pull out and eat, and the shell will be in pieces inside the device. Water is required for this process, however, as it acts as a lubricant that enables any shell to slide off smoothly once it's cracked by the device's inner ridge.
The carafe of each device is transparent, so you'll always be able to see what's going on inside. If you notice that your egg's entire shell hasn't been separated from the rest of it yet, you'll know that you must shake your device for a little bit longer.
Each Egg Magic is compact—about the same size as a water glass—so none of them will take up much space in a drawer or cabinet. You'll also be able to bring yours along with you if you're going to be cooking somewhere else, such as a friend's house or the cottage.
Both pieces of this device (lid and carafe) are dishwasher safe. Therefore, if you have a dishwasher to use, you'll never find yourself scrubbing either piece by hand.
Egg Magic is totally free of the potentially harmful chemical compound known as BPA, which is found in some plastic products.
With each Egg Magic, you'll receive a recipe book full of various recipes that can be made with boiled eggs. You'll also get the Egg Wave, a plastic bowl with a lid that will enable you to cook eggs in the microwave.
If you attempt to peel an egg you just boiled with only your hands, you might burn your fingers as you try to do so. Fortunately, this is unlikely to occur if you use Egg Magic since you'll be able to put each boiled egg right into the device without touching it for very long. By the time each egg has been peeled by the device and is ready to be taken out, it won't be as hot as it originally was.
Children may have difficulty peeling eggs by hand and may find the task tedious, but they'll probably have more fun shaking this egg peeler. They may find it so entertaining to shake that they offer to make peeling eggs their regular job at every meal.
Seniors might also have trouble peeling eggs at times, due to arthritic hands, but Egg Magic will help them out here, too. Shaking the device won't be as hard on the hands as peeling off individual eggshell pieces, so by using it, people with arthritis will be able to peel eggs more quickly while taking fewer breaks.
If you find eggs hard to peel, you might be reluctant to add them to meals and end up missing out on your recommended daily protein intake, especially if you don't eat much meat. Once you have an Egg Magic device, though, you may find that the frequency with which you add eggs to meals goes up, resulting in more protein being added to your diet. The same goes for the diet of other members of your household if you're the one who prepares most meals, or they also become interested in using this egg-peeling device.
Many compact, hand-held food preparation devices for the kitchen require batteries, but this one doesn't, nor does it require electricity, either. You'll be able to power yours just by using one or two hands.
If you're concerned about your household's water usage, this might not be the ideal device for you, as you'll need to put water in it each time to make it work properly. You could try using it without water, but any shell would probably remain stuck to any egg inside, and this wouldn't help you at all.
It would be nice if each Egg Magic could peel multiple eggs at once, but it'll only work on one at a time. The carafe would likely accommodate one or two more, but they'd all bang up against each other and wouldn't end up being peeled completely.
Since one of these devices will peel eggs so effectively, you might think that you can use it to peel other food items like apples and oranges, but that's not the case. The ridge within will only crack eggshells nicely. Other food items would likely just rattle around in there without experiencing any changes—besides, perhaps, picking up a few bruises.
The Egg Wave dish that you'll receive with each device is meant to be used in the microwave, but the egg-peeling device is not. It's not a dish, so it should only be used for peeling eggs and should never be used to cook anything. If it were put in the microwave, its plastic might melt.
You must always at least rinse out your device after each use if you want to avoid food poisoning. It may not look like there's egg residue left behind in it, but sometimes this can be almost invisible. You don't need to wash it in between eggs if you're peeling them in succession, but if you leave it for even a few hours, you must wash it before using it again.
