Daiso Japan – Egg Hole Puncher
This small device from Daiso is an Egg Hole Puncher. What on earth is an Egg Hole Puncher and why would I need one?
From the back packaging:
“This item creates a small hole that makes it simple to peel eggs. Comes with magnet that helps keep a neat and clean kitchen.”
Punching a small hole on the large end of the egg may also help prevent the egg shell from cracking.
The Egg Hole Puncher has a magnet on the back that allows you to stick it on metal surfaces like the side of a fridge.
The Egg Hole Puncher has a safety lock feature that prevents the pin from being exposed when the dial is set to the ‘OFF’ position.
How to use
1. Turn the dial on the safety lock to the ‘ON’ position.
2. Push the large end of the egg into the hole puncher.
3. Turn the dial on the safety lock back to the ‘OFF’ position.

This is yet another handy item to keep on the side of the fridge or in the kitchen drawer, along with the Egg Timer. I love boiled eggs, but I also hate peeling the shell from the egg. So for a 200 yen investment, I can time my egg boiling time perfectly, I can also peel the egg shell with no fuss!
One warning though, don’t press the egg too hard onto the hole puncher or else the egg will crack. We had to practice a few times to get it right, but we managed to get easy peeling boiled eggs!
