It was breakfast time and I was ready to cook up some eggs and waffles for my family. Before I did though my daughter told me that the UPS guy delivered a package. To my surprise it was my new Rollie® Eggmaster.
For those of you that don’t know what the Rollie Eggmaster is I suggest you check out this video to see what it can do. In a nutshell the Rollie Eggmaster is a unique new way of cooking eggs and other foods.
What is claims: “the fast, easy, pan-free way to make perfect eggs every time! Just crack your egg, pour it in, and watch it pop up in minutes!” Burritos, pizza rolls, and cinnamon rolls are other Rollie options. The device costs $30 plus shipping and handling.
The checks: After opening up the box and reading the instructions I was eager to try out my new Rollie Eggmaster. It came complete with 6 wooden skewers, Rollie brush that looks like baby bottle brush, user manual and recipe guide. I decided I would go through their included recipe guide and see what I could cook up. First I plugged it in and waited for it to heat up. A convenient light on the front of the Eggmaster lights up to green when it is ready. I then cracked two eggs into the top of the Rollie Eggmaster and inserted the included wooden rod. After 6 minutes like magic the cooked eggs were slowly ejected from the top of the Eggmaster.
You have to see it to believe it. I invited my children and husband to the kitchen for a taste test. I sliced small sections of the tubular egg formation onto a plate and let them try it out. Everyone enjoyed the eggs very much. My husband said that they were perfectly cooked. My kids liked the tubular formation that the eggs were in and commented on how easy it was to eat them. In kids language this means they didn’t have to use a fork or knife to eat them. So the egg recipe was a success. I imagined how convenient they would be to add eggs to a salad or other dish.
Next I tried the eggs with a hotdog (called Rollie dog).
This time I beat the eggs before putting them into the Rollie. Along with the eggs I put a hot dog inside. After sometime (about 3 minutes) the eggs popped out with the hotdog. The nice thing about it was that the eggs surround the hotdog.
Sort of like a pigs in the blanket but with eggs instead of dough. After trying it my son really liked it and my husband said the hot dog wasn’t cooked enough (it was cold in the middle). So my suggestion for that recipe is to flip the rollie dog upside down and reinsert it into the Rollie and cook for additional 3-4 minutes.
Next I tried Rollie Omlette. This time I beat the eggs before putting them into the Rollie. Added a little bit of shredded cheese and sliced pieces of ham and poured the mixture into the cooking chamber only half way. After about 5 minutes the Rollie came up but the shape of the omelette rollie wasnt perfect and round. Then I had add the remaining part of the mixture for the second omelette rollie and waited another 5 minues for the scrambled roll to come up. It looked something like this.
My kids were patiently waiting for their rollies. Although they waited 10 minutes they still were able to enjoy them. They didnt really care about the shape.
Next I tried the PizzaRollie recipe. This is something my kids and myself were craving for a long time. It called for biscuit dough, tomato sauce, mozarella cheese and favorite ingredient (in my case was pepperoni). So I quickly went to the supermarket, and gathered all the ingredients. As per instructions after adding a thin layer of dough, sauce and cheese and sliced pepperoni i rolled the mixture, inserted into the Rollie I waited for the results. This time the mixture came out of the Rollie quicker than the eggs did.
After putting it on a plate I noticed that the dough wasn’t fully cooked and it really didn’t taste that good. So I decided to flip the mixture upside down and reinsert it into the Rollie. I waited another 6 minutes. The Rollie Pizza came up but the dough was still not cooked. So I reinserted it again and again and spent about 20 minutes in whole waiting for my Pizza Rollies until the dough was cooked inside. And created a mess trying to perfect my PizzaRollie in hopes for a delicious one and many many tries. Lets just say that this recipe didn’t pass muster with my family.
Bottom Line: While watching Rollie eject food was fun, but it often did that too early, leaving us with runny eggs or raw dough, the Rollie Eggmaster did a good job cooking hard-boiled eggs on stick. As far as the other recipes go I would pass on those and let the Rollie Eggmaster stick to cooking hardboiled eggs. Rollie was easy to clean.
