As much as I’d love my mornings to look like something out of the movies — a carafe of orange juice, a basket of pastries, the New York Times — that’s just not happening. I need something that is fast, easy, and ideally portable.
I recently did the Whole 30 (a 30-day diet that focuses on whole foods and basically makes you eliminate everything good), meaning I had to cut out dairy and grains — aka cereal, the only breakfast I ever eat.
I was stumped: what could I eat for breakfast that didn’t involve cooking… or grains or dairy?
I tried making ahead fruit salads, but those left me hungry again after an hour or two — same went for smoothies. Everything else, like paleo muffins and bars, took too much advance planning (and were generally pretty bland). After some experimentation, I concluded that hard-boiled eggs were the answer, so I started making batches of those.
Problem is, while I’m a practiced cook (and I like to consider myself a decent chef), somehow hard-boiled eggs are an art form I haven’t quite perfected. Looking online, dozens of websites promise the “perfect” method to making hard-boiled eggs, but they all vary so much. Some say to boil the water and then add in the eggs, others claim that putting them in cold water and boiling them along with the water will do the trick. Some say poking a hole into eggs is necessary, others don’t.

This nifty little device can make seven hard-boiled eggs in no time, with no guessing or pot-watching involved. It comes with a little measuring cup that shows you how much water to add for your desired egg consistency (hard, medium, soft), as well as a little needle to poke holes into the eggs with.
To make your eggs, all you need to do is poke holes in them, dump the desired amount of water over them, cover them, and push the on button.
