great for backpacking

great little egg carrier. i have both the dozen, and half dozen carriers. i use one of them on just about every camping trip i go on. i've never had an egg break, but no, you can't fit large eggs, you need to buy smaller ones. i cut the handles off to make it easier to fit in my pack. the only reason i put "spills" as a con, is because there is no seal of any kind on it. if an egg did happen to break, it would make a mess. i solved this concern easily enough though by putting it inside a big ziplock bag.

best egg holder I've found

I've had one for years, and now one of my hinges has broke, so time to buy another. I have also cut off the handle so it fits better in backpacks.
medium size eggs fit perfectly, large eggs can sometimes be a problem, pick the smallest to use, I've only had a couple of eggs break on me using large, never a problem using medium.

I'm thinking of getting the 2 egg version now that I see they are available as many times I only need 2 eggs anyway

No more broken eggs

This has been great to use for family car camping, and canoeing, just put the eggs in the container, toss in cooler, and no worries of broken eggs or soggy egg cartons. Never had a problem getting eggs to fit. The only thing that could make it better would be some way to put a gasket in the lip so it seals out water from getting in and if for some reason a egg broke, that it would leak out. But for me it worked great.

Does what it's supposed to do!

Just used this on a two-night backpacking trip, and it kept all six eggs unscathed. I'm not sure why so many reviewers are having a problem with it being too small--I used large brown eggs (Eggland's Best, from a US supermarket) and was able to close it securely without any cracking.

Some sort of seal to waterproof it would be ideal, but otherwise it's a great way to carry eggs! Will probably buy one of the smaller versions for solo trips.

Great way to carry eggs

I've used this egg carrier on several trips and never had any problems. The handles were a bit too bulky when trying to fit this into my food bag so I just cut them off and viola! I've never had any issues with eggs not fitting or breaking. The container is designed to securely hold them in place so it will be a snug fit but, again, I've never had problems closing the container.

mmm, eggs!

Why didn't they put the shock absorbers on both sides (the little plastic tabs that have some give)?? Baffles me, but it probably would've saved me a couple eggs (put this inside a ziplock bag incase one breaks!).

Great design otherwise, keeps my eggs safe, so I can have a delicious breakfast or two while out on the trail. Probably couldve used a bit thinner plastic and saved considerable weight..

gets the job done

this container does a good job at protecting the eggs. i have fallen a few times with all 6 eggs in my pack inside the holder and thought for sure they would be broken but was surprised when i opened the container up at camp to find 0 broken eggs

Omelets Anyone?

Pretty nice way to carry some eggs, never had any break inside. Eggs taste so good in the morning and this is definitely my preferred way to carry them.

Negative Reviews:

Too Small For Standard Eggs

I've used the 'dozen' egg holder from Coghlan for years--camping and canoe trips. The cups are too small for the large size eggs which are the common size in stores. Additionally, the 4 plastic tabs at the bottom--which are supposed to cushion the eggs are too stiff, and occasionally puncture the shell. I usually have an egg or 2 break. OK for hard boiled. This is a great concept, Coghlan should make the cups larger and redesign the cushioning! The only reason I would recommend this is that I've not found another style.

Too Small !!

I had one of these years ago...and vaguely remembered it being small - but thought "what are the chances that 10yrs later they haven't fixed that?"

Well - they haven't!

These containers are TOO SMALL for virtually all commercial eggs that you find in grocery stores (maybe the smallest size fits, but the majority of sizes don't).

Such an easy thing to fix - such a shame they don't fix it.

Make sure you either KNOW your eggs or small - or don't buy this :)

Too small

Not only is the Egg Holder too small for USA supermarket eggs, it is too small even for the eggs we bought in little towns in Mexico, Central America, the Galapagos, and French Polynesia. We even tried alternating pointy end up, pointy end down, but they just wouldn't fit.

It's 2010. Any hen laying 'small or medium' eggs will find herself battered and fried.

The basic design is good enough but it needs to be bigger to be any use.

Great Idea just not for USA eggs.

Its a great idea, but just not ideal for USA eggs. I had to really hunt at the supermarket for the smallest eggs to fit inside the container. I eventually gave up and returned it back to rei. If you do use it, please put it inside a zip-lock baggie, or hard boil the eggs, otherwise its a mess.

Doesn't fit American eggs!

If you can find small or medium eggs, this might work. I went to 3 grocery stores trying to find the smallest possible eggs, and still could only fit 3 eggs in the six-egg holder. And they were so jammed in that two of them broke. Time to update your mold, Coghlan's.

eggs break inside

The spaces for the eggs are too small to fit commercial size eggs. They should make them fit larger size eggs.
