(Columbia) May 14, 2004 - The Eggstractor claims to be quick and easy and save you lots of time in the kitchen. Lots of News 10 viewers asked Troubleshooter Judi Gatson about it. They want to know if it makes egg-aggerated claims.
Linda Caley of West Columbia e-mailed News 10, "I thought if it worked it would be great."
Judi put 18 eggs in a pot and brought them to a boil for the Eggstractor. Peeling them should have been a snap. The extra instructions with the device didn't lend much confidence. Before doing anything, you have to let the eggs sit in cold water for at least 10 minutes. You also have to pierce the smaller end, crack the larger end and then use the Eggstractor.
The egg kept slipping, but Linda kept pushing. Then Judi gave it a try with no luck. WIS Photographer Dan Criswell then gave it a try and he also struck out.
Judi ran through 18 eggs and zero came out shell free.
It would appear the only thing getting extracted would be your wallet.
