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.

  • Heat-sensitive
  • Non-toxic
  • Graded from soft boiled to hard boiled
  • Easy to read scale
  • Size of an egg
  • Don't eat by mistake

egg timer

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 product...

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's a bargain!

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
