1.0 out of 5 stars Complete waste of money

I am not even strong enough to use the Eggstractor, but fortunately my husband was strong enough to push the "bellows" down so at least we could try it out.
Here's a summary of our results:
We tried 11 eggs. The 12th egg I hand peeled, to make sure the eggs were cooked perfectly. Preparing the egg involves cooking it perfectly and cooling it (same as for hand peeling). Then you have to pierce the top of the egg, and perfectly crack the base of the egg, before putting it on the Eggstractor. It took me less time to hand peel the egg than it took my husband to properly "prepare" the egg for "Eggstraction." Out of 11 eggs:
* 3 came out with half of the shell still on.
* 8 basically exploded into anywhere from 4 to a dozen pieces, all with the shell still on the whites. Save your money, really!
