EzEggs is a hand-held device that's been designed to allow you to peel up to five hard-boiled eggs in 10 seconds. The device is meant to be used for white or brown eggs, as long as they're hard-boiled. Once you've put a few eggs inside, and have shaken it for about 10 seconds, it's specified that the device's unique design will have allowed the shells to fall away and set the eggs free. This peeling device is mainly transparent, so you'll be able to see the action as it happens.
The cost of EzEggs is $14.99 plus $6.95 shipping, for a total price of $21.94.
Before you can add eggs to this device, you'll need to separate the top from the bottom and fill the bottom about a third full with water. There's a thin fill line that you'll be able to use as your guide. The water should be ordinary tap water that's neither hot nor super-cold.
Next, add three to five hard-boiled eggs to the bottom half of the device and put the top (lid) back on. The number of eggs that will fit will depend on the exact size of the eggs. Once the lid is on, hold the device in one or both hands, making sure that you've got some sort of hold on both the top and bottom half. Shake the device quite vigorously for about 10 seconds—there's no harm in going a bit longer, especially if you're a first-time user.
After you're done shaking your device, open it up to reveal eggs that have been peeled for you. If they aren't completely peeled, by any chance, you'll need to close up the device and do a bit more shaking. Otherwise, separate the top and bottom halves again, and move your eggs to a plate or dish. Toss all the broken shells that have collected at the bottom of the device in your trash bin or a compost pile.
The EzEggs kitchen tool is able to do its job so effectively due to its elliptical design and the 100 nodules that have been added to the inside of each one. As you shake your device (with the base pointing downward), the design allows the eggs inside to shift about in a certain way. This, in turn, makes them bump up against various nodules, which crack their shells so that all the pieces can fall to the bottom of the device. The water at the bottom also acts as a lubricant that travels through the device when it's shaken, making the shells fall away more quickly and smoothly than they would otherwise.
Each EzEggs device is powered by the human hand, so you won't need to worry about adding batteries or using electricity when you want to use it to peel eggs. Furthermore, each one is so compact that most people will be able to hold it comfortably in one hand while doing their shaking.
Aside from the black base and the black stripe around the middle, this particular device is transparent. That means you'll be able to see your eggs moving around inside it, which will give you an idea as to whether they're peeled or whether your device needs a few more shakes. You won't have to open it up and look inside to see the progress that's been made, which is something that could slow down the whole process.
When you're not using your EzEggs, the top and the bottom half will nest together for storage, which means the device will take up half the space as it would when full of eggs. However, you'll also be able to use it as a container that'll store peeled boiled eggs in your refrigerator, if the need arises.
This device is dishwasher safe, as long as you place it on the top rack, and you must also remember to separate the top and bottom halves before loading yours into your dishwasher. If you don't have a dishwasher, or won't be running a load through for a while, hand-washing the device with soap and water is an option, too.
The durable plastic used to create each EzEggs is free of the potentially toxic chemical compound known as BPA, which is sometimes found within plastic kitchenware products.
You may not want your kids to peel eggs with their bare hands, since they may not have the coordination required yet, and they might also cut their fingers on the shells. There's little risk of them cutting their fingers if they use EzEggs, though, because only the device will make contact with the shells while peeling them off the eggs. Moreover, when it comes to coordination, most kids have mastered the shaking motion by the early years of elementary school.
When you can peel three or more eggs with this device in the same amount of time it would take you to peel one by hand, you may decide to eat more eggs. Since eggs are a source of protein, this will likely enhance your health, and if other people in your household follow suit, it may also enhance theirs. You might decide to put the eggs you've peeled so quickly in dishes such as a chef's salad or egg salad, but you might even choose to eat them whole if you're in a rush.
If you're not using your EzEggs device for eggs, you can use it as a storage container for virtually any small food items. It has a flat black base, so if you're careful, it's unlikely that it'll ever topple over. Just keep in mind that if you've put some other food item inside it, it's best to wash it before you use it for eggs again (and vice versa).
After peeling eggs by hand, you've likely found that there are pieces of the shells all over your counter for you to clean up. You won't have to do this at all if you use EzEggs to peel them, however, since the device will collect all the stray shells for you. That means you won't have to worry about anyone cutting their finger on a shell or cutting their foot on one that has fallen to the floor.
For efficiency's sake, it's important that the base of your device is facing downward and that the pointier top is facing upward as you shake it. You must also hold it vertically while you shake it, as opposed to horizontally. By following these guidelines, you'll maximize the positive effects of the device's design and allow it to peel your eggs as quickly as possible. If you ignore them, the process will go more slowly, and the device may be more likely to open up in the middle and spill.

The device only works if you perfectly boil the eggs. To which case, perfectly boiled eggs are easy to peel by hand. The easy egg company runs a scam and says you can get a second peeler for $5 extra and they ask if you would like to so they then send you 2 offers of 2 for a total of 4 for twice the price. They also sent me a broken rolling knife and blamed it on no shipping insurance. Pieces were in the bag where the packager put them knowing the device wouldn't work. I have been hung up on and now its after hours. I will be seeking a full refund. Hoping they are shut down.
