Foolproof Egg Timer
This little gizmo is, as its name suggests, foolproof. Just pop it in the water with your eggs and watch it. As the eggs cook the timer darkens towards the middle, when it reaches the right line for you, your eggs are done to perfection. Graduated scales show when eggs are soft, medium or hard by sensing heat instead of time. The sensor accounts for the number of eggs, the amount of water, even the altitude at which the eggs are being cooked - so useful for high level cooking.
- Graded from soft boiled to hard boiled
- Easy to read scale
- Size of an egg
- Don't eat by mistake

The Foolproof Egg Timer gives the perfect eggs every time, just how you want them. From very soft, to soft and different types of medium. I love watching the colour changing, it's better than watching a clock. You can take out the eggs from the pan to suit everybody's taste as to how they like them. Brilliant.
This Foolproof Egg Timer is a fantastic invention and is really awesome! It makes sure you get the perfect egg every single time.
This Foolproof Egg Timer is a really good product. Sadly the first time my partner used it he forgot about the eggs and went and watched TV. When we heard a loud bang and could smell burning we found the timer had sort of exploded from the bottom. It still works though! Useful and indestructable!
This is really useful to have in your kitchen. I use mine everytime i cook eggs. Highly recommend.
Cooking eggs has never been easier, It is easy to use, comes with clear instructions and is well worth the money.
Great invention and really is fool proof. Instructions of how to use it on the back of the packet the product come sin is simple and easy to follow. Very useful and definitely worth buying as it won't go to waste. It's something you want and you kind of do need as its hard to get eggs done the way we want them! Would reccomend...especially for the price its available for...it's a bargain!
I actually bought this about 2 years ago now from IWOOT, and it is an absolute godsend. I was appauling at boiling eggs before for the right amount of time, infact, i didnt even bother i was that hopeless. Works brilliantly. In response to the reviews below ( i was intrigued as to how the overall review for this product wasn't 5* so checked it out) I think the customers have either been exceptionally unlucky and purchased a dodgey one, or they are putting the egg timer and eggs into the water BEFORE it had started boiling, in which case it will NOT work properly!! Despite a slight discolouring of the egg timer (which is expected considering its been used every week for the last 2 years) it still works brilliantly. AND i have bought another for my mum! I wouldnt necessarily go by the bad reviews though, you always get more people leaving reviews who it didnt work out for than those that it did! I suggest try it, i think its WICKED!! It is obviously doing something right and working how it says on the box if IWOOT still stock 2years on from when i initially bought it! Ooo and the review about not being able to see it through the boiling water... dont put so much water in your pan so that you can see it??
Could well be the best thing I've ever bought...
My eggs are boiled to perfection. Just remember to keep it in the fridge if thats where you store your eggs so it's at the same temperature as them. I lost one of these years ago and went straight out looking for another as I have never found another egg timer that will beat it.

Spot on Eggs!
Brilliant purchase! This egg timer is absolutely spot on. It makes eggs so easy, it almost feels like cheating somehow. The timer colour function is so easy to see and use, definitley reccomended!
The Red Egg
I bought the Foolproof Egg Timer for a friend who was going on a self-catering holiday but lived on toast due to zero cookery skills. Bored with his limited toppings of marmalade, peanut butter or marmite the FET just had to be the answer! This truly is a fab little foolproof gadget, and once he had followed the instructions (unusually, you put it into the pan at the time of adding the tap water - do not use icy cold or hot water - before you start to boil) and it's been an eggstravaganza of culinary delights ever since. Not convinced that it would work at all, he gave it a go and has now mastered the soft boiled and hard boiled varieties with the help of this nifty timer. Can't wait to see what he comes up with for Easter .... Thank you IWOOT x
Best Egg-spert Device Ever!!
Its egg-actlly what its name suggests; it really is 'FOOLPROOF'!!! I know! Because EVEN I CAN'T GO WRONG WITH IT!! Helping to get perfect eggs everytime!!! It makes me egg-static!!!
got this for my sister at xmas as she is hopeless at getting her eggs just right and managed to lose her electric egg cooker. she was absolutely delighted-says it works exceptional well, easy to use and works every time. Much cheaper than an electric one. well reccommended
got this for my sis for a stocking filler and she loves it! now her boyfriend has nicked it and its in his place so il have to get another one. definately worth it!
best small kitchen gadget!!
i am sure i am not the only person out there who puts on an egg to boil in the morning and forgets to look at the clock to work out how long it's been on? sometimes i get sidetracked getting ready for work, sometimes i just lose all concept of time! but the foolproof egg times is my saviour!! i can now make boiled eggs to how i want them, and i dont even need a clock! also brilliant as i like my eggs runny so i can dip my toast, whereas my hubby likes his hard boiled so he can mash them in a cup and have with his toast - this means i can take mine out the pot when mine are 'soft', and he just waits another wee while until the timer tells him they are ready. totally brilliant! couldnt be easier to use, and its so small there is no issue with storage!! every house should have one!!!
works OK but you cant see it through the boiling water, not clear enough.
Great for hard boiled eggs
I threw mine away after relying on it for a perfect soft boiled egg and constantly getting hard boiled eggs. I can't stand hard boiled eggs, nor wasting food. Ask Delia Smith how she does hers instead!
Couldnt help the pun sorry... Given as a gift to my bf as a chorus of how do you like your eggs in the morning? in our house normally ends with the reply there going to be rock hard no mater what we ask for... Hope comes in the foolproof egg timer, well my bf... a bit of a fool, took him a while to get used to it but it works a charm now... Perfect eggs everytime!
It does what is says on the tin!
Like it says - Even a fool could cook an egg to perfection with this little gadget! I always used to overcook my eggs (I like my yolk runny) but with this eggtimer it really is fooolproof, perfect eggs every time!
We followed the instructions exactly but nothing happened for ages. By the time the egg started to change colour and indicated "soft", our eggs were totally hard and really dry. Very disappointing!
i dunno if it was my eggs were too small, or the water did not start off from cold, but this did not work for me at all
The first time we used it our "soft" eggs came out rock hard. Needs practice!
