"Absorbs detergent taste, even unscented deterg."
Look, this is an excellent idea, and the product, which I understand from the SLT website is molded from food grade silicone in Spain (we won't go into the question ""Why on earth would the silicone cup and top, if manufactred in Espana as stated in the description here, need to be sent to China for ""assembly"" which presumably means putting the silicone cup and matching silicone cover together and putting both in the box you seen on the shelf in the SLT store - I mean, what a huge carbon bootstomp on our environment) looks like a quality product.
But that issue is small potatoes compared to a significant inherent (""inherent"" in the choice of quality or grade of silicone material used in manufacture) manufacturing flaw that wrecks an otherwise very useful cooking product. After cooking eggs in the silicone cup and cover, both must of course be washed for the next time. Unfortuately, this silicone product absorbs a sufficient amount of detergent at the molecular level that it CAN NOT be removed by repeated rinsings with hot water. Even though the cup is ultra clean, it will most likely transfer an odor and taste of dish detergent - even unscented detergent - to the food the next time you prepare an egg dish using the silicone cup and lid, resulting in cooked eggs that come out of the cup and onto the plate smelling and tasting like detergent. This will of course result in your child or significant other or both pulling a face and, once again, saying ""peeyough, this tastes like soap"" and refusing to eat one tiny bit more. Even rinsing out the cups with that wonderful safe and organic cleaning product, ordinary white vinegar, will not remove the silicone taste and smell from this silicone cooking product. Perhaps silicone works well for potholders and heat resistant kitchen gloves, but this product needs some serious tinkering by Lekue at the design, material selection and prototyping stage so it does not absorb ANY soap molecules when washed and rinsed after using. That defect is unacceptable and the silicone egg cooking cups can't be used for the intended purpose
