Do your hens lay small to medium-sized eggs?
Do you keep Hamburghs, Araucanas, Chinese Silkies, Pekin Bantams or Campines?
The Egg Skelter 24 Medium to Small Eggs will work brilliantly to hold your smaller eggs in date order. Just like the original, it holds around 24 eggs, but the wire spacing is slightly smaller.
Whether you're a chicken keeper, a keen baker or a busy Mum, you've probably got a constant supply of eggs in the kitchen. The Egg Skelter is the perfect accessory for keeping those lovely eggs in order, at room temperature and proudly on display. The Egg Skelter will hold up to 24 regular sized eggs (double yolkers and jumbo eggs are just too big!!) Whether you have a traditional country kitchen, a chic and cosy hideaway or a sleek and modern space, the Egg Skelter will look the part.
Do you keep your eggs in the fridge? Most chefs recommend storing eggs at room temperature for the best cooking results, whether you're a master of meringues or you can just about rustle up an omelette. Delia Smith (Well known UK Cookery Author), says “with room temperature eggs, the whites and yolks will combine easier when whisking...eggs will disperse more evenly into the batter, making for even cooking and a lighter texture.” Another reason to store eggs at room temperature is that the shells are porous, meaning they can absorb the flavours of strong foods if stored in the fridge.
Not only will the Egg Skelter allow you to store eggs at room temperature, but it will keep them in date order too. By adding eggs to the back of the Skelter and taking them from the front, you will ensure that you always use the oldest egg first. This is particularly hendy for chicken keepers, when eggs are collected on a daily basis. No more spending time on organising eggs and no more wastage. Hooray!
This spiral egg container is now available for 12 eggs, 24 eggs or 24 bantam sized eggs, and it stores them in date order to ensure you use the oldest egg first. Whether you have a traditional country kitchen, a chic and cosy hideaway or a sleek and modern space the Egg Skelter is a great choice.
Now, we know this is called an Egg Skelter, but that doesn't mean your delicate, precious eggs want to be hurtled down at 50mph. It is not a toy, and eggs will break if they pick up speed (sorry to spoil the fun). When adding eggs to the Skelter, we recommend placing them gently behind the most recent addition. When you need to use an egg, simply remove the one at the front and the others will move down to their new positions (sometimes with a helping hand). Please note as eggs are not round like golf balls they will not all roll down evenly. Hence the name Egg Skelter!
