The Incredible Edible Egg
It is said that an egg will stand on its end during the spring (vernal) equinox (about March 21), one of the two times of the year when the sun crosses the equator and day and night are of equal length everywhere. We didn't try it out, but this time of year our minds turn to the ever-popular egg. Below are a few of our favorite products for egg lovers.
Rachael Ray 12-c. Serveware Sittin' Pretty Egg Tray, Blue
Lay out traditional party favorites in a new contemporary way with this colorful and uniquely designed Sittin' Pretty. The perfect size for deviled eggs or your favorite mini appetizer. It is dishwasher, microwave, freezer safe and oven save to 500 degrees F for convenience and versatility. The glazed interior is nonporous so foods won't interact.
Krupps Egg Cooker and Poacher
This egg cooker holds up to seven eggs for boiling to your liking - soft, medium or hard and fits all size eggs. A signal alerts you when they're finished cooking - just remove them or flip the switch to keep them warm. Afterwards, the egg holder slips out so you can rinse them under cold tap water without having to touch each one still hot from boiling. In addition to boiling, you can also poach two eggs (trays are included). This cooker has a water level indicator and comes with an egg piercer. The lid and holder are both dishwasher-safe.

Set of 4 comes as a single unit that you can place on your griddle or inside your pan and each ring features a nonstick coating so food removes easily. Handle is heat resistant so you can lift and remove comfortably, and it detaches for cleaning and storage. (Weâ€™'e all about eggs, but we should mention it can also be used for pancakes!)
