Do Egglettes Work?There are many different ways that hard boiled eggs can be enjoyed. But no matter what the final use of them is going to be, they can be a hassle to prepare. That’s because you have to peel the shell off of them afterwards. There is a solution to this and it’s the Egglettes.

Overview
Egglettes are silicon pods that you crack the raw eggs into. Then you place them in a pot of boiling water like you would the egg in its natural state. Once they have boiled for the right amount of time which is usually three to four minutes you just unscrew the top of the silicon pod and the hard cooked egg just slides right out.

The Claim
According to the promoters of Egglettes not only can you cook hard boiled eggs this way but it’s a great way of doing soft boiled eggs. In other words you can cook your eggs just the way you want them except fried of course.

The Hype
The hype around Egglettes is that you don’t have the big hassle of having to peel them once they are cooked. This is a big time saver and avoids the possibility of ending up with egg shells in your finished dish which really makes them distasteful.

The Cost
The cost for Egglettes is $14.99 which gives you six of them then an extra cost of $3.99 shipping fee. Plus you get a recipe booklet to go along with this to give you some additional tips for using the eggs.

The Commitment
The commitment for using Egglettes is less that the commitment you would have to make with cooking hard boiled eggs in the traditional way.You don’t has the hassle of having to peel the eggs after they are cooked. The silicon pods are easy to clean so there is no problem there either.

Evaluation
The concept of Egglettes is really a great idea. Normally if you are going to eat a soft boiled egg you have to just cut the top off of it and use an eggcup. With the Egglettes it is so much better. Then for the hard boiled egg version how much easier can it get. You can now quickly make egg salad for sandwiches or they can be used for devilled eggs. You most likely will do a lot more egg boiling with the Egglettes .

Final Egglettes Review

We are going to give the Egglettes a thumbs up rating. We like the fact that they are made of silicon which a lot of the popular bake wear of today is made of. It is easy to clean and it appears to be great for baking so it makes sense it would be good for this egg use.

Our Recommendation
This isn’t the first time that we have talked about innovative ways to cook eggs. If you happen to be a microwave enthusiast then you may want to check out Egg Pops which is along the same line as Egglettes except you are not using the stove top for cooking.

What do you think? Does Egglettes work or not?

I was going to order until I saw several complaints that their orders have not been shipped after several weeks. When they tried to contact you, their requests went unanswered.
What is your current delivery timeline after order is placed?

Same thing with me. I ordered mine over a week ago and have not seen them yet. When I try to email them, it comes back and says they aren’t accepting emails. The shipping part of the website is a disaster! Can’t get a hold of anybody :(.

it took me a month to get mine. but I got them and they work pretty good. Just remember to spray them with cooking oil first otherwise they will stick and will take a couple of dishwasher Cycles to clean them

I ordered from the company, TV add. I was out on back order did not e mail I called the 800 number. She could not give me a delivery time only just on back order. I cancelled the order. Hey were the less expensive Amazon wanted 35.00, As seen on tv order had 4/9.99 SH 4.00 but would not ship till 3/16/2018. Looks to me they sent out adds and did not have enough product to fill orders. May want to Wal-Mart or Wall greens get them in and save S&H. But may not get the cook book, but how hard is it to boil eggs. That would be like getting a cook book to learn to boil water.

They are on Backorder for atleast 3 to 6 weeks and when you order they won’t tell you this. But after I call twice they told me.

When I placed my order, I was told right from the start that there was a backorder on them. It would take about 6 weeks for them to come in. My order is now on its way here. All good things come to those who wait.

I just saw the commercial. I, as well, am considering a purchase. Yet, I see Donna’s comments above and now have similar concerns. They require a credit card payment in advance, so why should a customer experience any delay in receiving an order? Such a significant delay of “weeks” is totally unacceptable. Do we have answers and updates. I’ll wait until I know more.

Terri Riggs December 29, 2017 at 10:13 pm

I was about to order as well. I read on their website, shipping was in 30 days. I am elderly and like the option of no longer peeling… if I didn’t order, still would be peeling in 6 weeks. Absent finding one single location to purchase, other than their website, …. and based upon only other silicone based egg poachers, I’m pulling the trigger and ordering and will use in 2018.

When I first order them, they did require a credit card payment BUT they did not charge my card until the order was on its way to me. When I ask about being charge from the start, they told me that they do not charge until the item is shipped.

I ordered Egglettes in early January and received them yesterday (2/13/2018) so it took 5-6 weeks. I bought them to use for sous vide eggs – to avoid the sticking that happens with Mason jars even when the jar is buttered/greased on the inside. I’ll report back after I try them out.

Marie January 1, 2018 at 4:13 pm

I also was going to order, but reading what Donna and George have experienced make me a bit weary In placing my ordering. I also think ‘Regina Richardson’ works for the company since she cannot answers Donna’s basic question.

I just learned that if you let your eggs sit in ice cold water with a few ice cubes the eggs will peel seamlessly. I no longer need Egglettes and saved $15 bucks. GIDDY UP!

Lica January 3, 2018 at 7:22 am

Boil your eggs in baking soda then cool with ice water roll them back and forth between your palms and the shell will fall off. Save your money. Sounds like no one receives their product. I was going to order just because I liked the other things you could do with it but not now.

I pour out the boiling water and replace it with cold. Peel your eggs right away and the shells come right off.
I have done this for years and rarely a problem peeling eggs. I am not ordering. Thought about it for my sister but told her to do them right away also so don’t need the egglettes especially since it talkes so long to arive

Reply

Robert L Mahlstedt February 16, 2018 at 12:41 pm

Ha! I’ve tried EVERY method for years and years…I think it depends upon the freshness of the eggs or what the chickens eat. I HATE the frustration of peeling eggshells. I’ll stick to this method, thanks.

“I was this close to ordering 2 sets”

Too many SCAMS in this world, I’m not falling for it!
I’ll wait for Wal-Mart to carry them, then I’ll have in hand and I can return them for a FULL REFUND if not satisfied.
Good luck to all who order these mystery Egglettes

The reason for so many back orders is that As Seen on TV products are manufactured as orders arrive. They are not produced en masse beforehand. When they get your money, then they manufacture them and not before. 6 to 8 weeks is rediculous, but that’s how these chiselers operate.

Sue February 1, 2018 at 4:28 pm

I placed an order about a 6-8 weeks ago. But when I placed the order, they did tell me it was on backorder. They also explained they would not charge my card until it was shipped. I just got notification that it is being shipped today. I think they didn’t have enough manufactured when they advertised and received too many orders to fill.

Thank you for all of your comments. I put all of my information including credit card in to the order form when a little voice said google egglettes and see what others have said. After seeing the comments , I decided not to complete the purchase so I hit the back button several times to get rid of the all of the personal information. I hope that what had been captured before I read the comments will not be used by the company to charge me since I changed my mind before the sale was completed.

Did take few weeks as told from start. DID NOT Bill card until shipping date. Just received today, but not once did ad say had to use cooking spray. The instructions say to spray 3 sprays or use olive or coconut oil. I will try without and hope for good outcome.

Reply

Beno February 13, 2018 at 6:48 pm

Received in time told, about 6 wks, was not billed until shipped. But you MUST spray or oil, if not takes forever to scrape off where they stick! Nowhere in ad says use cooking spray, but instruction booklet does. Also takes longer than chart says , using gas stove. Still worth money.

I am wanting the Eggletts to hard boil and keep in the container to have in our RV fridge. Hand to grab 1-2 to take out on the boat . My husband can’t stop to eat he might miss a fish bite so he has a protein along with his PB&I to keep his blood sugar up and not miss a fish.

Jim Parnella February 14, 2018 at 7:22 pm

I did take a long time to arrive. I just tried them with only two eggs. It takes too long, 18 minutes for hard boiled egges according to the directions. For that length of time you really have to watch the water level. It would have been much faster to boil them in the regular way and just struggle with the pealing. One of the containers did not stay upright and was on its side, then the top came off. The other survived nicely and tasted great. I’m wondering if it’s best to use a size pot that will not allow the egglettes to turnover and float.

Mark February 15, 2018 at 5:34 pm

I’ve been waiting for over 2 weeks. Tried contacting Customer Service twice…NO REPLY! If this company runs their business this half ass…I would advise you to stay away! They’re really hurting their business.

Reply

Bob February 16, 2018 at 12:31 pm

It’s OK…but FALSE advertising makes me dislike this product. The ad says just pop the egg into the holder….FALSE. The instructions which come with the product say you FIRST MUST spray each holder with three shots of non-stick spray and then use your finger to be sure the entire inside surface is covered with spray…wiping away any excess. This makes for a laborious process. But I still like the idea of not peeling egg shells. So I’ll keep the product. The “bonus” microwave egg cooker is a nice idea, but here again all is not as it appears. My first try at cooking an egg resulted in the top (which lays lightly on the bottom part) popping off half way through the cooking cycle…so not a full proof way of microwaving an egg. Oh well, such is life.

I like the egglettes OK. They are a novelty item I may eventually just discard. My tip would be to use cooking spray prior to filling. My eggs don’t just slide out like the infomercial shows. However, my BEST tip is one I learned from my now deceased Grandmother. My Grandmother has always said that the only way to easily peel a hard boiled egg is to use older eggs! Leave your eggs in the fridge for a week or two (paying attention to the X date) and then boil. They peel cleanly EVERY time. Our elders know a lot more than we do so pay attention to them! And love them!

Cindi Smith February 17, 2018 at 2:45 pm

FORGET ABOUT IT! Even if there wasn’t a wait time, they suck! TV forgets to tell you about rubbing olive oil evenly on each cup and that you need the edge of a spoon to dig them out. We followed these detailed instructions to the letter. Clean up was a pain as well. TOTAL MISREPRESENTATION!
