How to Make the Perfect Soft-Boiled Egg: Egg-Perfect Review

Germany's favorite way to eat an egg in the morning is as a Frühstucksei, or soft boiled egg. The problem is, the German boyfriend and I are horrible at keeping track of time and getting it to the perfect hardness.


Luckily we found the Egg-Perfect. Here is how it works:

The Egg-Perfect is made of some kind of plastic/silicone material, and it is flat on the back. You put it directly in the water with the eggs.

Then bring it to a boil, and let it cook away. The Egg-Perfect slowly changes color to a darker red color at the edge.

Once the dark red section reaches the line of the hardness that you want, you can remove it from the heat. Marco and I like it at the line between weich (soft) and mittel (middle). This gets the whites hard, and leaves the yellow runny.

Here you can see the dark red color a little better. After it is out of the water for a minute, however (like in this picture) the line starts to blur a little bit.

And here is the result. Doesn't that look amazing?!

How do you like your eggs?

This is not an advertisement, and I was not paid to write this review. I really just think the Egg Perfect is awesome.
