A Bit Disappointed

6/1/2017 by Denise

I was so excited about The Negg! It arrived today and I could not wait to use it. So disappointed to discover it does not work on cold hard boiled eggs. Using the Negg on pre-boiled eggs cold from the refrigerator yields me the same result when peeling them by hand. If it is operator error please advise me on what to do. If The Negg only works on freshly boiled, warm eggs you might want to add that to the description. :(

Disappointing

5/24/2017 by Annabel

Nice idea but....the instructions say to boil for 12 minutes, which is way longer than I normally would, and you have to add water before shaking it, which means that once the egg is peeled, you are left with fragments of shell and water all mixed together. You can't put that in the garbage, ordown the waste disposal, so I had to strain the water. A lot of effort just to peel an egg.

dissapointed

I was really looking forward to getting this egg peeler. My Mother in law is always complaining about peeling eggs, she has recently moved to a farm with a lot of chickens, so she peels a lot of eggs, with not much success. I thought I would get this for her, but wanted to try it out first. Glad I did, I tried it with two different sets of boiled eggs and they just did not work as advertised. I get better results peeling them the old fashioned way!! The shell did not slip off like you said it would.

Got a jar? Save your money.

The Negg works on an old technique that restaurants (or church ladies who make a lot of deviled eggs) use -- shaking eggs in a container with water to loosen the membrane just under the shell. While the concept of having more cracking surfaces in The Negg seemed worth its purchase, in actual use it is no more effective than a jar with some water. Actually, it's less effective because getting the top on and off requires a good deal of leverage and force. I would not purchase again.

Doesn't work that well.

I only had one egg that peeled as demonstrated on the video which is why I purchased it. The first one I obliterated then reread, "don't shake too hard." Most only partially de-shelled. I had cooked the eggs the night before so perhaps it only works like intended right after cooking and cooling?

so excited to try this

I was so excited to try this, it sounds so great. I must be doing something wrong, as nothing has worked like the video. I've tried less water, more water, more shaking, less shaking, I still have to peel eggs pretty much like always,
None have come off as easily as in the video

Didn't work as expected

5/22/2017 by Terry

This particular purchase didn't work out for us. We tried it several times but the egg seemed to disintegrate if you shook it too much. I also tried gently shaking it for a lesser amount of time but it didn't take the shell off, so will just peel the old fashioned way. Love the products offered and will continue supporting The Grommet!

Not worth the money

By the time you do everything to get the egg peeled in here, you could just do it yourself the old fashioned way. If the egg is difficult, it isn't any easier using this method.

Not New Procedure

5/22/2017 by Katina

Basically, a little water in plastic container that has a few ridges, place egg inside, put lid on and shake. Not that great. I've been doing this for years with the pot used to boil the eggs. Drain water, place ice cubes in pot, replace lid and shake like crazy. Better job and you save money.

Has never worked for me

5/18/2017 by Wick

Not even once. Either shells stick to the egg or if I shake more vigorously the whole egg breaks apart.

I really wanted this to work.

The NEGG® Story

The Negg | Hardboiled Egg Peeler

Eggcellent Peeler

Peel an egg without pulling your hair out.

Cold water and some shaking is all it takes for this hardboiled egg peeler to work. It’s a Made in the USA kitchen hero that conquers a dreaded chore sleekly.

Maker Bonnie Tyler signed up to bring deviled eggs to a party and—after a failed attempt at peeling—showed up with a bag of potato chips instead. After some prototyping and research at her local library, she cracked a solution.

Bonnie combined the elements of industrial peeling (i.e., vibration, movement, and water) to create something small, portable, and easy to use at home. That’s how The
Negg was hatched. She even managed to get it manufactured in Connecticut, her own backyard.

Now you can de-shell your eggs with just cold water and a little bit of effort.
