Hard boiled eggs. They’re my favorite for so many reasons: healthy, portable, inexpensive, versatile, and easy to grab on the run. But they’re not always easy to peel.
This is especially true with eggs that we get fresh from our own chickens. The shells are super thick and almost always stick to the white after hard boiling. And I’ve tried all the tricks: baking soda and vinegar in the boil water, cooling the eggs quickly, letting the eggs “get old”. None of it has worked. Then the Negg easy egg peeler came along and solved all of my egg-peeling problems!

How does the Negg work?
This is so simple! Hard boil your eggs however you prefer, and cool them before using the Negg. Pour 1/4 cup of water and your boiled egg to the Negg cup, snap on the cap, shake, and simply slide off the shell. That’s it! The Negg egg peeler is dishwasher safe, BPA-free, food safe, and available in several colors.
I was so skeptical when I received this little device. I thought to myself “Maybe this thing will peel store-bought eggs…but no way it will work on our fresh eggs!” I even started planning how I was going to return the Negg with a polite note to the manufacturer that the product didn’t work as claimed.
Imagine my shock when the Negg worked so well that even my 9 year old daughter was able to peel an egg in seconds. This is fabulous because my kid likes hard boiled eggs, but, because our eggs are a bear to peel, she never eats them. Since we got the Negg, she is eating hard boiled eggs every morning for breakfast…which is so much better than the sugary cereals she normally eats. Negg for the mom win!
What are the benefits of eating eggs?
Whether you eat them hard boiled and peeled with the Negg, scrambled, or over easy, eggs are little powerhouses of healthy nutrition. They are a mainstay of my healthy diet. The health benefits of eating eggs include:
- Eggs are a great source of complete protein. They contain all 9 essential amino acids necessary for tissue repair and muscle building.
- Eggs are great sources of selenium, Vitamin D, Vitamin B12, zinc, iron, and copper.
- Eggs are a great source of healthy fats. Depending on the eggs you buy, many of them also contain high amounts of Omega 3 fats.
Let’s not forget that eggs are inexpensive (compared to other animal-based sources of protein), versatile, and simple to cook and eat. And if you love hard boiled eggs as much as I do, the Negg makes healthy eating even easier!
The Negg egg peeler makes a great gift or stocking stuffer!
I highly recommend the Negg! With Christmas coming up, it makes a great stocking stuffer for egg-lovers, fitness buffs, or the at-home chef! You can order directly from Negg by heading to their website or by ordering from Amazon.
