Omlet in the kitchen

Have your eggs ready for all of your recipes in our egg skelters. These countertop creations keep your hens’ eggs organized and artfully displayed for all to see. Pull eggs from the bottom position, and watch as the others roll gently into position, ensuring you use the oldest eggs first. Or, keep your hens’ eggs in the egg basket you collect them in – just place the basket full of eggs right on your countertop, or hang it on a hook for convenient access.
