Keep egg shells from cracking when making hard and soft boiled eggs by piercing a small hole in the shell. EGG PIERCER is made of 18/8 stainless steel and sits in a stable plastic base. Set the wide end of the egg into the spring loaded platform and gently press down to pierce a small hole into the egg shell before cooking. Dishwasher safe!
