Review: The Egg Perfect Egg Timer

Standard

As with many people, hard boiling an egg is not necessarily difficult. The tricky part is getting the yoke part to be the perfect yellow without being runny or gray in color from over-boiling. I found The Egg Perfect Egg Timer at a home store in town since I had not heard about this product before, I was skeptical.

The concept is simple. Place The Egg Perfect Egg Timer into the cold water with the eggs. As the water boils, the timer changes from red in color to purple, starting with the edge and in toward the middle. The timer becomes more purple in color the further hard the eggs turn in the boiling process.

Pros

    When the eggs are turned off and taken off the stove when the Egg Timer is turned the color purple you intend, the eggs are consistently boiled appropriately and I have not yet seen a gray yoke.

        The Timer cleans well and turns back from purple to red as it cools, so it is easy to use over and over again.

      Cons

        The colors red and purple are hard to distinguish between, especially through boiling water.
        The white text is difficult to read through the boiling water.

      Although I do highly recommend The Egg Perfect Egg Timer for the best cooked eggs, I would recommend the company try different colors instead of red to purple so it would be easier to read. I also would find it an improvement to find a way for the “timer” to actually sound at each level of doneness so the user does not have to stand there and watch water boil.

My New Boss

Standard

He may only be seven weeks old, but he is very demanding on directing my time both day and night. My newborn has definitely changed everything I knew about working from home. He might sleep a lot, but he also feeds and cries a lot at unpredictable times. It always seems I just get him down for yet another nap and he does not stay asleep very long. This new mom sure has a lot to learn, but here is what my new boss has taught me so far:

Time Management

I have learned that the second his eyes close and I am able to put him down for a minute (or two?) I find something to do, such as fix his bottles, eat a sandwich, or play with the dog. I find myself being more productive both personally and professionally because I cannot spare one moment when he is sleeping.

Juggling

My new boss weighs roughly thirteen pounds. Just enough to become heavy over the course of the day. I have learned how to juggle his little frame while running errands, attending webinars and teleconferences, and feeding the dog.

Working at Home is Not for the Faint

I always knew being a stay at home mom was a full time job and I always admired how they got so much done at home. It takes a strong person to care for their little one 24/7 along with freelancing. I am still trying to find all the hours in a day.
