    just mount a small nail on the side of the box for easy pricking on both sides of the shell before putting it into the rubber, hey presto! no searching for a nail every time.

    also if you make a small 'ramp' within the box the egg can roll out onto a pre placed dish or something and stop you having to open the top each time to grab your egg.

    I still do not understand how it works. Why is the rubber needed on the box? What happens to the shell? Where does it go? Why do you have to poke holes in the egg? I could peel fifty eggs in the time it would take to build this.

    The Rubber is there to seal, so no air gets out, and to hold the egg in place. Nothing happens to the shell, watch the video again, its still there. The hole on the top is for the air to go in, the one in the bottom to ruin the structural integrity of the eggeshell, and give the pressure a place to go. Nice that you can peel those 50eggs... Maybee this device will hit the market sometime, so you don't have to build it. Over time, this device will be more efficient then you peeling them by hand. Just imagine, you spend 30 Minutes building this. And don't ever have to peel an egg again...

    Thanks. So you just clear the shell from the rubber and place another egg and you are ready to go again?

    Thats exactly it. Clear the shell, and your good to go for another egg. So in the End, its a bit faster then by hand, but at least easier. I often tend to get the eggshell between finger and nail when i peel them....

     i remember when we studied about the time when japanese invaded the philippines.....
                                    ...... they torture us Filipinos by putting pins in between the nails

    So i guess eggs are invading your kitchen....


    you mean peel an egg by hand?

    What about the shells? Are they still usable after extracting the egg?

    Step 1: Cut a hole in the box. Step 2: Put your egg in that box.

     free cream and ketchup dip and sausage with every 2 eggs LOL

    I was thinking that exact same thing - and my dirty mind had all kinds of thoughts about that video....

    50 eggs per minute? I guess if you had 50 pre boiled eggs, and had pre-punched the holes, you might be able to get away with it. It does look like it is useful, however. What if you found a way to put a pin or nail or something in the end of the plunger? You could use that to pierce the egg, then pull the plunger all the way up and pump down. No need for scissors.

    would need really long nail though, ti puncture teh egg from top to bottom :(

    No! Short little tiny needle, just enough to get through the shell. Poke on one side. Flip. Poke on the other side. Then put it in the thing.

    that can be done too :) i thought you meant a needle, just to go trough the shell, egg, yolk, egg and shell again, not just shell, turn shell :P

     or use a drill press! lol

    lol, im glad someone else was thinking that.
