For various reasons I didn’t cook any hard boiled eggs for a while and I couldn’t find my egg timer when I recently wanted to use it. So, I bought a new one from Amazon and it works perfectly. (It does not have any smell that some purchasers have complained about.)
Of course, I probably don’t have to tell you that about two weeks after I received the new egg timer, I found my old one. :)
Here is a tip to prevent your eggs from cracking when you boil them; After placing them in cold water, bring the water to a boil. Then, turn the heat down enough so that the water stays hot but it is no longer boiling. Leave the eggs in the hot water until they are cooked which takes about 12 to 16 minutes to make hard boiled eggs. Alternatively, if you don't want to stand at the stove waiting for the water to come to a boil, you can bring the water to a boil, then turn down the heat and place the eggs in the hot water. Do not turn the heat completely off and leave the eggs in the hot water. If you turn the heat completely off, it'll take too long for the eggs to cook. When you leave the eggs in the water this long, the water will penetrate the shell because an eggshell is porous. This causes the egg white to completely stick to the Shell when you try to peel it.
The reason the eggs crack, is because when the water is at a full boil, it causes the eggs to bounce up and down on the bottom of the pot. By turning the heat down to a point where the water is not boiling, you avoid this problem.
HERE'S ANOTHER LITTLE TIP ABOUT EGGS;
Eggs will stay fresh for a long time. But, after you've had your eggs in the refrigerator for a long period of time, how can you tell if they're still fresh?
Here is one quick and easy way; fill a glass with water. Then, place the egg in the glass filled with water. If the egg sinks to the bottom of the glass, it's fresh. On the other hand, if it floats, it is no longer fresh.
The reason for this is that the eggshell is porous. This characteristic, overtime, allows air to get inside the shell. As a result, when air gets inside, the egg will float.
If you want to make it easier to peel off the shells when your eggs are finished cooking, be sure to put a generous amount of salt in the water that you use to cook them. (For anyone who thinks this means they should put the salt in the water AFTER they cook the eggs...; Don't go near the stove, don't play with matches, and don't run with sizzors. Now, go to your room and watch cartoons.) 😀
Just treat it like an egg. Put it in the pot with the room-temperature water, like the rest of the eggs, "cook" it with the eggs, and cool it down like the eggs. Very accurate. You'll quickly learn how its markings relate to how you like your eggs. Take notes!
One caveat: It's really a 'Doneness Indicator", not a timer. It doesn't have a bell or a time to set. It just indicates the heat transfer into an egg to indicate doneness.
