Health gurus are insisting that eggs are a nutritious food, providing many benefits. This food helps keep a balanced diet, aids in weight loss, and can be made into a variety of dishes. Unfortunately, peeling an egg, whether hard-boiled or soft-boiled, is tedious, messy, time consuming, and for those with limited use of their hands, difficult if not impossible. The Outta The Shell design team created a counter-top kitchen appliance to take care of this troublesome task. Such a device will encourage people to eat healthier and will give those who have been deprived the opportunity to prepare boiled eggs once again. After much research and testing, the final design works in a two phase system, one to cut the egg shell and on to pull the shell halves apart. The materials used will comply with set standards and codes as well as limit the product’s impact on the environment.
