- Boiled egg test
Just tried spinning an egg to see if its boiled or raw, someone has interfered with my system of putting boiled eggs in 1 section of fridge, raw in another. So boiled should spin a few seconds, raw not.
Is the test reliable? Its my packed lunch for tomorrow so dont really want to crack a raw egg….i know i could boil some more but i have a system and i am sticking to it.
Would you risk russian roulette with a raw egg?Posted 2 years agodeadkennyMember

You shouldn’t store fresh eggs in the fridge (unless you’re American)
I must be a Yankee then as done that since forever 😀 . Even have a nice egg tray in the fridge for the job, and I violate the rule that you shouldn’t keep them in the door (apparently). Since the 90s doing that, had the sum total of one bad egg, and no ill effects.Posted 2 years agoStonerMember
the eggshell is very good at keeping lurgies ont’outside. Until it gets wet that is.
This is why washing eggs is poor, as is the condensation that forms on chilled eggs as they come to room temperature. It provides a medium that can penetrate the eggshell and take nasties on the outside inside the egg. No need to wash eggs, and eggs kept at room temperature are fine for more than you’ll need.Posted 2 years ago
