      thanks fizzzzy!!
      i've looked at those before, but never bought them
      don't know if you watched top chef, but stefan had this little device (same purpose but looks like it would do a better job)

          thanks! that was the one i was looking for, it looked so interesting.
          but then again, that german one is just the height of coolness. :)

              Well, if you're spooning caviar on your soft boiled eggs as in the photo, you might as well go all out.

                You are, of course, right, but this is very perverse.

          When I looked at Amazon it gave a list of things that 'people who bought this also bouth the following'. This included...

          Tomato Corer
          Corn Stripper
          Colour changing egg timer

          Can you imagine their kitchen drawer?

            i've entertained the concept of a corn stripper.

            but $78 for an egg cutter? riiiiiight! (i wonder how the company derives this price? crazy!).

          The way coolest egg cutter for boiled eggs is the German precision made "Clack."

          See attached photo.

          Also at www.eurocosm.com/Application/Products...

          I got mine from a US source but I haven't refound it yet.

            does it really truly reliably work? let me know if it does... i'll be on the hunt

              Works great. Raw eggs too, though messy...
              Matfer now makes a Clack knockoff.

            i'm getting one - haven't decided which. $78 (or even 28 euros) is serious pain for an egg gadget.
