Testing a Gadget: Dash Egg Cooker

Dash does it again with a device for cooking eggs. Please excuse the awkward cut before I open the cooker. The sound it makes when the eggs are done cooking is earsplitting, and I decided to spare your eardrums from having to hear it, but take my word for it, you know when the eggs are finished. Oh, and my assistant comes in to help.  I included the full outtakes from Scout’s helpfulness at the bottom of this post.
Below is a video of the noise that the Egg Cooker makes when it is done.  It is ear-splitting.  Listen at your own peril.

 

Scout is helpful!  He’s such a good helper.

Testing a lifehack and gadget: Easy to peel hard boiled eggs

In this episode, I’m testing different ways of making hardboiled eggs easier to peel, and I’m trying out a color changing boiled egg timer. For the first test, I poked a small hole in the bottom of two eggs before boiling. For the second test, I added two tablespoons to the water before boiling. I purchased the egg timer at Poundland when visiting London in 2013, but I have seen them in dollar stores and on Amazon in the US.

Bonus video: 14 minutes of egg boiling condensed to 2.5 minutes. I find it oddly mesmerizing, and you can really see the Egg Timer work its magic.
