I purchased a red egg skelter mid 2017 (to match my kitchen) and have been so happy with it. No more writing dates on the eggs or grumbling to people that keep using the newer eggs. It is sturdy and looks so cool, quite a conversation piece when we have visitors. The eggs sometimes need coaxing to move along which is to be expected as our chickens lay egg shaped eggs, and our one bantam's egg needs to be placed crossways to not fall through - nothing to complain about though. We now always use the oldest eggs first, don't need to label them and we can always see when it's time to gift some to neighbours. And best of all, it looks great on my kitchen bench.
Its a great product and constructed well. We have found that our eggs don't roll down to the bottom and we have to help move them along but I love the fact I am always using the oldest egg without too much thought!
Bought the red one to go with my new red themed kitchen - it looks stylish on the side by the cooker ready to pop an egg into the pan. Tricky to get the eggs to go around and down it - I’ve already lost an egg onto the floor (but the dogs enjoyed it!!).
The skelter is sturdy but the eggs do not roll freely down when removing a couple for use which would have been ideal. They tend to roll onto their narrow width and halt.
I bought this Egg Skelter after seeing it at my daughters. It is very easy to use and I don't have to date the eggs as I use them from the bottom, ensuring the fresh eggs are placed at the top. The only problem I have had is when our hens lay supersize eggs which are a bit too big! This only happens occasionally.
Item shipped quickly. It's just as it was stated it would be. Eggs don't really "roll" down, but that is due to the eggs not the design of the skelton. I expected this to be the case due to other comments I read prior to purchase. Looks great on the counter and keeps our fresh eggs handy.
I just love my Egg Skelter, no more writing dates on my girls eggs to use them in order and the compact size means it sits on the work surface out of the way, but the best part is now matter how large or small the eggs my girls lay are thay all fit perfectly, Thank you Omlet.
I have fancied one of these egg skelters since they first came out. They are very reasonably priced and extremely well made. I have bantams, so I was cautious about buying one of the original models in case the eggs dropped through. I was delighted to find the bantam size and can confirm that the eggs fit perfectly.
It seemed a little wobbly when I unpacked it, but now that it is full of eggs, it is very stable and works as expected. It also generates lots of conversation with visitors! I'm quite happy with it and would recommend it to anyone who wants to show off their eggs.
The storage is art as well. Great way to keep track of which to use first. They do sometimes get turned around and impair the slide down the spiral. If anyone has a trick tonthatvwoukd love to know.
