Double Egg Cups are used for serving and enjoying soft-boiled and hard-boiled eggs. Eggs have played a starring role in food culture since the dawn of time, and the use of egg cups dates to the 18th century BC. Egg cups carefully cradle boiled eggs, holding them in place for easier eating with less mess. The classic design of the Double Egg Cup elevates the egg and adds stability for easier handling for a certain elegant presentation at any table. Simply place a hard-boiled or soft-boiled egg, pointy end up, into the appropriately sized cup. Use the smaller cup for enjoying eggs while still in their shell. The larger cup allows ample room to chop and season eggs after their shell has been removed, and to garnish with crumbled toast, bacon or ham before being enjoyed. Made from fine- quality porcelain, Double Egg Cups are safe for use in the microwave, oven, freezer and dishwasher. They won’t transfer odors, colors or flavors between uses. Easy to clean. Dishwasher safe.
