I love a fun kitchen gadget, especially one that creates a reaction at a dinner party! The Eggspress turns a normal hard-boiled egg into a heart shape. The instructions are pretty clear and the mould is simple to use although, as I was using large eggs, I found it easier to put the egg into the mould end-up, not sideways as shown in the diagram. You have to close it very gently to avoid breaking the egg - I wouldn't recommend letting the kids do it unless you have eggs to spare! I did have some excess squeeze out, but this was easy to trim off with a sharp knife afterwards. Once removed you really do have a heart-shaped egg! It looks very effective sliced in half and I would use it as a finishing touch on a salad or as a garnish.
Realistically it is not something I will use that often as it does take over 10 minutes per egg (post-boiling) to make a heart, so it is ultimately destined to a life at the back of my gadget drawer. However, I know that I'll probably dig it out every now and then to impress a new audience so for me, it is worth the money!
"Very good. "

My son enjoyed his eggs a different shape.
