Rollie Egg Cooker With Eggs

How to Use the Rollie Vertical Egg Cooker

How do you like your eggs in the morning? We like ours with a Rollie egg cooker twist. Yes, we’ve discovered a new kind of appliance and it goes without saying that we’re eggs-tremely eggs-cited.

An appliance just for cooking eggs? Yes, it’s a little gimmicky. Okay, very gimmicky. But hold your horses before you judge, it doesn’t just cook eggs. You can make egg-wrapped hot dogs, breakfast tortillas, eggy spring rolls, chocolate banana pastries… the list goes on.

As you can see from this Rollie video:

It looks amazing, but does it actually work? There was only one way for us to know, try it for ourselves and that’s exactly what we did.

How We Used the Rollie

Rollie Egg Cooker Ready To Cook

Step 1 – Turn up the heat

When the Rollie is first turned on the red light is illuminated. This means it’s as cold as your texts to your ex. You’ll need to wait until the green light. Green means go or in this case hot (unlike your ex).

Step 2 – Eggs-travaganza

For the most basic Rollie recipe, 2 eggs were all we needed. We cracked them and in they plopped. We popped a wooden skewer (that came with the appliance) in with the egg too as per the instructions.

El, in her role as egg preparer, was cautiously optimistic.

“If this doesn’t work, I’ll be very sad. But it will work.” – El, certified Lyrical Gangster and novice egg chef

Step 3 – All rise

Just like all the best foods (cakes, muffins etc.) these eggs rise! After about seven minutes the egg roll rose gracefully out of the Rollie, sending us into a frenzied panic whilst we rushed to transfer this miracle of science onto a plate with the dignity and speed it deserved.

How Did It Taste?

The all important question!

Over the past week, we’ve pitted Mariya and El together in a series of egg related challenges. They’ve tried fried egg shapers. They’ve tested fish egg separators. We didn’t see why this Rollie challenge should be any different. So we gave them a whole host of condiments and challenged them to make their egg roll the most delicious.

El's Rollie Creation On A Plate

El went for a topping of:

  • Tomato ketchup
  • Sriracha sauce
  • Grated cheese
  • Basil
  • Paprika
  • Salt & pepper

Mariya's Rollie Creation On A Plate

Mariya’s Rollie was adorned with:

  • Mayonnaise
  • Tomato ketchup
  • Bay leaf
  • Oregano
  • Grated cheese
  • Salt & pepper

Our independent adjudicator scored both eggs…

El Mariya
Appearance 8 9
Smell 9 8
Taste 9 8

Total

26/30 25/30

It was very close, but El took home the victory based on the smell and taste tests.

We have to crown the Rollie as the true victor here though as the judge then went on finish both egg rolls. Eating four eggs in one sitting is no mean feat!

Top Rollie Tips

We learnt a few things from using this wonderful little gadget.

  • Hold your skewer in the centre of the Rollie as the egg starts to cook to make sure it’s centred in your food. Otherwise, it can fall to one side.
  • Probably don’t crack your eggs on the side of your Rollie like we did. It didn’t seem to do it any harm, but in hindsight it wasn’t the smartest move.
  • If you don’t have the cooking oil spray that they advise you use then soaking a bit of kitchen towel in olive oil and using chopsticks to rub it around the edges of the Rollie did the trick for us.

Absolutely cracking.

If our egg prep has inspired you to get into your own kitchen, don’t forget that we’ve got you covered with all the spares and accessories you could ever need for a cooker that doesn’t let you down.
