We live on a farm and so have chickens. The fresher the eggs the more difficult they can be to peel. The egg piercer makes the peeling more than twice as easy, so while there are still those stubborn eggs from time to time this thing is a awesome-

Just What I Was Looking For
This pierces eggs beautifully. I can't believe some people try to use a push pin. This gadget creates a smaller hole and there is no chance of breaking the egg while piercing it. It will keep your eggs from cracking while boiling and also fill in the larger part of the shell with egg white and not leave such a large air space. All these years I could have been using it...

Use an egg piercer when cooking hard boiled eggs. The piercer puts a small hole in the shell prior to boiling which releases the pressure inside, making for a perfect boiled egg.

To keep eggs from cracking during cooking. Also it is recommended to pierce eggs so that you are not left with a large air space at the wide end of the egg that results in an oddly shaped egg.

I like that it is 'free-standing', so you can use it with 1 hand, unlike the other piercers I've had in the past. Egg piercers really are the way to go to help make the shell come off easier. I've had 1 in my kitchen continuously for many years, and wouldn't be without it. This little gizmo is nice-looking, and appears to be somewhat safer than the others too.

I like its sleek look and it's functionality. Hopefully it will work in helping me peel boiled eggs easier.
Mimi D on Apr 3, 2015
peeling eggs are a nightmare. everyone swears by a certain way of doing it. none of them work. so why not try another possibility. the only thing is the ad doesn't say when you poke the hole. after they are boiled or before. I hope it works!!

I read that if you pierced a hole in an egg before cooking, it makes it easier to peel.

abigail w on Feb 21, 2015
What is the purpose of this? I have found more and more that hard boiled eggs are getting more difficult to peel
Leslie R on Mar 29, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Hi, Leslie. Like you, I have found that some cartons of eggs are difficult to peel. I have read that extremely fresh eggs are difficult to peel after boiling, while eggs that are a few days old (but still considered fresh) are easier to peel. Other techniques I have found for easier peeling include plunging the hard-boiled eggs into ice-water immediately after boiling them, and then peeling them about 5 minutes later, keeping each egg a little wet while peeling. I find that trying to peel a refrigerated hard-boiled egg, can often be very difficult. This is why I now peel them shortly after cooking them. With all that said, let me now answer your question about the purpose of the Egg Piercer. The purpose of this device is to try to prevent your eggs from cracking while you are cooking them. The theory is that you should ideally provide a small hole in the end(s) of the egg, so that during boiling, the air which is at the end(s) of the egg can escape. Apparently the air heats up and expands during the boiling process and will crack the egg in order to escape. Sometimes you may not want cracks in the shells of your hard-boiled eggs, say at Easter-time when you are coloring your eggs and want them to look attractive.

I have used the Sur la Table Egg Piercer and find it to be the most attractive I have ever seen. It also works well. It has a safety feature to prevent you from accidentally sticking yourself with the piercing needle. Because of this safety feature, you need to twist the top slightly to unlock it and get it to work, and then you need to twist it again to retract the needle and make the device "safe." Be careful and experiment a little. Be careful not to punch your finger with the needle! Try putting an uncooked egg on top of the round part of the device, and then push the egg down gently until you hear the needle punch a hole in the egg.

I hope these tips are helpful to you. Remember, practice makes perfect. Good luck!

Does it make eggs easier to peel?

BEST ANSWER: We have chickens. The fresher the eggs the more difficult to peel. The egg piercer makes the fresh eggs much easier to peel-
