Editor's Notes

June 30, 2020:

If you're like us, you can't have too much dinnerware, or too many kitchen gadgets. Egg cups are a great addition to your arsenal, especially if you enjoy a classic English breakfast with a soft-boiled egg. Not all holders are created equal however, as some come with toppers to make perfect cuts, and others arrive with special spoons designed to get every last morsel. You'll also find that some are more durable than others, even while still being made from elegant materials.

If you have a large family or have company over often, consider the Nicola Spring Country Breakfast, Yellrin Egg Holders, or Sweese 805.002. All come with six pieces that accommodate most shells, and the Yellrin also includes its own matching spoons.

If you want to let your kids try some boiled eggs, but are worried they might break their holders by accident, Porter's Home and Family Sky Blue or the Ototo Miss Nessie are some great choices. The former are made from silicone and the latter from hard plastic, so they can take some abuse and still work just fine. The Ototo Miss Nessie has the added benefit of being a fun design your kids will love.

The Le Creuset PG9010 is definitely the highest quality option on our list and is built to last you a very, very long time. The company's thick stoneware is known around the world for its durability and resistance to wear.
