- Since I was a child, I loved eating hard-boiled eggs but disliked the messy, frustrating peeling process. I also preferred the egg white over the chalky yoke but found myself eating the cholesterol-rich yoke, because there was no other way to cook a hard-boiled egg. I knew many others like me who couldn't stand peeling egg shells and also preferred the egg whites. It was at that point where the Eggibles™ idea dawned on me. I designed this product to be consumer friendly, safe and address a problem that I knew many others could relate to.
Can Eggibles™ be microwaved?
- Although Eggibles™ is made with 100% food-grade silicone which can sustain the heat of a microwave, but it is not recommended. Microwaves vary in wattage and cook unevenly, which can result in rapid cooking expansion, making it unsafe.
Is it necessary to spray nonstick or apply cooking oil?
- Yes, even though silicone has non-stick properties, you need to spray non-stick or use cooking oil to ensure the eggs pop right out. Don't skip out on this step, or be prepared with a sponge and some elbow grease.
Will the egg liquid in Eggibles™ leak?
- No, if following directions correctly, it will not. This was one of the most crucial aspects of Eggibles™ that we repeatedly tested, and designed with it top of mind. We used CAD and 3D models to produce accurate, functional prototypes, and made adjustments accordingly.
