Norpro Egg Perfect Egg Timer
Norpro’s Egg Perfect Egg Timer is an egg-shaped device that simplifies the process of boiling eggs. It’s a gadget that can empower kids to cook the perfect hard-boiled, soft-boiled, or medium-boiled eggs. The Egg Perfect features a unique technology that takes the hassle of determining the cooking status of eggs off of your shoulders.
What is remarkable about this Norpro product is that it calculates the different cooking stages of eggs. Unlike other devices that rely on time to determine the state of egg-doneness, the Egg Perfect utilizes water temperature as its principal indicator. This means the Norpro will try to evaluate the current temperature of water and determine whether it is already time to fish out the eggs.
It’s an ingenious solution to one of the seemingly easiest, yet ridiculously hard-to-master boiling of eggs. There are chefs that still cannot get it right, often relying on a timer to get the perfect hard-boiled egg. The system adjusts its timing efficiency relative to the level of water and the number of eggs in the pan.
The Norpro gadget is also very easy to use. All one needs to do is to drop it in the water together with the eggs. As the water temperature heats up, the color of the Egg Perfect changes. These color changes correspond to the level of “hardness” of the egg. There are markers on the surface of the device that correspond to the level of egg “hardness”. You will never mistake a soft-boiled egg for a medium-boiled one.
It’s easy to think that the Norpro Egg Perfect Egg Timer is built for lazy heads. This is not true, of course. What it provides is a simple solution to having the perfect boiled eggs every time, all the time. It cannot get any simpler than this.
