(Daily Mail)   Have you ever thought to yourself 'if only i could scramble a egg while it was still in the shell, my life could be complete'? No, me either but it is now possible to do so thanks to Mr Krumpe and his bizarre kitchen appliance   (dailymail.co.uk) divider line 59

When your product's task can be replaced by an old large sock, your product isn't very cutting edge.

I remember a machine to do this from back when I was a child. It was basically a pin mounted on a motor, with the pin at a slight angle. You'd poke the pin through the shell and the pin would sweep around inside to scramble the egg. Of course, all too often the egg shell would crumble when you poked the pin through it.

IF only there was some way of holding the egg in your hand and vigorously shaking it to scramble to egg inside...Also for most people it's hard to get this whirling disc style toy to work at all

Cheaper to buy a couple dozen eggs and just practice.

If you go through the Williams-Sonoma catalog there is an electric egg poacher kinda like this priced at like $99.98. Cheaper to buy some eggs and just practice.

Welllll...
I've been told that there's nothing special about egg whites, it's just a mess of denatured proteins. So any protein slurry will cook up the same. So it'd just be like extending your real eggs with Egg Beaters-Offers.

A stocking, or even a sleeve from an old long sleeved t-shirt works just as well. Hardly a new discovery.

What if I held the egg in my hand and just shook my hand back and forth for two or three minutes?  Wouldn't that work?

Seriously, all you need is to feed the chickens corn or feed that's been impregnated with some ferrous material.  Then, take the eggs laid by the chickens, put them into a device that induces a shifting electromagnetic field within the eggs, and scramble away!  Your eggs will not only be scrambled, but cooked as well!  And you won't experience any more of a significant increase in heavy metal contamination then you would from any other imported, quality food-like product!  :-{D

FTA: "It makes eggs taste more creamy as it prevents air getting inside the yolk"

Yeah, sure, because the monsters complain every time I serve scrambled eggs that they're not "creamy" enough.

/I've warned them that the first one to give me a snuggy is the first one thrown out of the house. Now I have to add this stupid egg scrambler.

The sad part is some asshole will buy it. My sis used to insist on scrambling eggs in the microwave. It took about 20 minutes and a lot of stopping to stir what would become inedible eggs. My stovetop method requires about four minutes for perfectly cooked eggs. Few kitchen gadgets actually make your work easier.

My method:
 Beat 2 eggs add veggies as desired
Spray a shot of Pam in a 3" soufflé dish, pour in eggs
Microwave ~90 seconds (YMMV). Eggs fluff up by themselves

You now have a scrambled egg patty perfectly suited for a bagel breakfast sandwich

Do not need. I left an egg on a campfire grill once and it exploded as a buddy walked by. He caught shrapnel pretty bad, but the shrapnel was delicious (baked in the shell) egg. We ate it to be sure.

Heat a non-stck skillet on medium low heat. Add a half teaspoon of unsalted butter and coat pan. Add two slightly whipped eggs with a teaspoon of cream. Allow eggs to cook until they start to solidify and then gently stir to break up the curds. Continue this only until the eggs just begin to set. Remove from heat. The eggs will be soft scrambled (the best way to eat them). But if you want them done more, just wait a few seconds. Scrambled eggs are not supposed to be fluffy; they are supposed to be somewhat creamy in their texture, with only a slight bounce. Turn onto a warmed plate. Perfect eggs, with a cooking time of no more than two minutes. This is the French method. An alternative is to hold the cream until just before the eggs are removed from the heat. This will stop the cooking immediately.

You can scramble an egg the same way with a sock.

Put the egg in the sock (in the middle.) Twist the ends and give it a few snappy spins by tugging the sock taught.

You COULD do this with a hand towel or cheesecloth but make sure you are careful so the egg doesn't go flying out.
