A perfect little timer for perfect little eggs every time. The OXO Good Grips Digital Egg Timer is a kitchen gadget that times soft- or hard-boiled eggs to your choice of 7 doneness levels. A built-in egg piercer on top, according to OXO, promises that with a single prick on the raw egg’s fat end, peeling off its shell will be as easy as cooking up its insides.
In addition to choosing a preferred doneness, the Egg Timer also has 4 settings for the size of egg you’re boiling, from medium to jumbo. A progress bar with blinking lights along the side of the timer shows how far along your eggs are, and beeps when they’re cooked. In addition to facilitating egg peeling the built-in piercer is also intended to help prevent eggs from cracking during boiling. $19.99
