Best Egg Toppers

Soft-boiled eggs–you either love them or hate them. For many, it's the ultimate way to enjoy an egg that’s not too hard and not too soft. The problem with soft-boiled eggs is that they can be more difficult to peel than a hard-boiled egg, meaning it's easy to destroy the egg's overall structural integrity. So, if you're looking to enjoy more of your eggs from the plate and throw less in the trash, an egg topper can make enjoying soft-boiled eggs a little more enjoyable. Egg toppers are simple tools that typically use a spring-triggered set of blades to cut through the shell and remove the top of the white to expose the soft, yolky interior.
