Take the guess work out of cooking eggs with the Eggsact Eggtimer. Just place the timer and eggs in a saucepan, cover with water and start cooking. As the eggs cook, the timer changes color from red to purple, starting from the outside edge and moving to the center. Remove the eggs when the color change reaches the desired spot on the doneness scale, which ranges from soft to hard. This handy tool is made in the USA. 

Hard boiling eggs are easy. Knowing when they are cooked to a desired hardness is not. Until now. With the eggs act egg timer you'll know, every time, where your eggs are, in the cooking process. Simply add the eggs act egg timer in with your eggs and boil as you normally would. There is an easy to read scale within the egg shaped timer. During the course of boiling the timer changes colors, from red to purple, starting from the outside edge and moving to the center. When the color change reaches your desired spot on the scale the eggs are cooked accordingly. Soft, medium or hard. Perfect eggs, the way you like them every time.

Place this reusable temperature sensor into your pot with eggs, and the color will change to indicate when the eggs are soft- or hard-boiled. As the eggs cook, a visual color change on the graduated scale tells when they are soft, medium or hard by precisely sensing heat instead of time. The sensor accounts for the number of eggs, the amount of water, even the altitude at which the eggs are being cooked. Soft boiled eggs are as you like them, every time. Hard boiled eggs are no longer overcooked, so they have perfectly colored yolks and a smooth texture.
