Pinterest Nightmare #523: The Rollie EggMaster

I don’t know about you guys, but mornings are rough at my house. It’s always a struggle to get everyone up, showered, fed, dressed, and out the door on time.

We all know breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but who has the time and energy to cook delicious and attractive meals first thing in the morning?

I was ready to give up on the whole thing and sentence my family to a life of cold cereal forever until Pinterest came to my rescue!

Pinterest Nightmare #523: The Rollie EggMaster


As pinned from

You may be wondering what those beautiful tube-like things on the plate next to the fruit cup are. Why, they are EGGS!!

Yes, that’s right. Your eyes are not deceiving you. Eggs.

According to the the makers of The Rollie EggMaster, you just crack your eggs into the machine and a column of eggs will pop right out of the top ready to eat!

Still confused? Just watch the video below…



Have you ever seen anything so appetizing?!!

As they tell us in the video, the best thing about the The Rollie EggMaster is that it cooks eggs into a “new, easy to eat shape”. FINALLY! I thought I was the only one who noticed how difficult standard egg shapes were to consume. Just think of all of the energy you use trying to get sunny side up or scrambled eggs onto your fork. Ridiculous! (Don’t even get me started with poached).

Thanks to The Rollie EggMaster’s state of the art vertical cooking technology, you never have to struggle like that again! Just keep them on the stick, and your kids will be treated to a warm egg popsicle first thing in the morning!  Running out the door to work? Simply grab a fist full of cylinder egg product in your hand and you’re off!

They also tout that you don’t have all that messy breakfast clean-up like you do if you use a pan. You just wipe the very top rim with a paper towel and you’re finished! No need to use soap and water on the The Rollie EggMaster after each use. That really *is* a time saver!

Can you believe you can get The Rollie EggMaster for just $29.99 (plus $9.99 postage and handling)? I can’t believe I didn’t think to ask for this wonder device for Mother’s Day.

Oh, Pinterest. No…just no.

    • You are so right, Dana. And if it’s messy, how do they clean down in that thing? You can’t submerge it…yuck!!

  1. OMG, I swear what will they think of next. Seriously, I thought that is what hard boiled eggs were for with no mess, no fuss!! But I guess someone got a brilliant idea and this is what we got, lol!!

    • Hahaha. But you don’t use vertical cooking technology with hard boiled eggs. We needed something more hi-tech!

  2. I don’t know about this I like my eggs scrambled with yellow american cheese not this right here….it does look good though on the plate.

    • mmmmmmm…eggs scrambled with cheese. DELICIOUS!!! Too bad they aren’t in an easy to eat shape….like a tube.

  3. Yuck! I am supposed to eat two eggs a day and I swear if I had to eat them like this, it would never happen. That looks like something from the bathroom rather than the kitchen. Sorry, that was my 11 year old boy humor, but c’mon…you guys can see what I am talking about, right?

    • Did you see the sausage-y looking ones in the video. They look like logs…so I follow you perfectly, AnnMarie! EW!!

    • I have a feeling this this isn’t winning over any new egg fans any time soon, Kim. I love eggs, but tubular one kind of turn my stomach. You are not alone!

  4. Honestly, I can totally see people buying this. I think that the clean-up being a breeze is exaggerated unless you want to risk getting sick from egg that didn’t get all the way out of the tube. I think the thought of egg on a stick, though, is what bothers me most – it just doesn’t look appealing to me, period. Either way, I see a lot of people buying this, especially old people, only to find out that it is not as simple as they make it out to be.

    This reminds me of the one and only time my hubby bought an item from TV – the Rocket Chef. He thought it would be easy to use and all that – wrong! It was so much more hassle than it was worth and totally didn’t work as advertised and there were all these limits on use (i.e. pieces had to be so small, can only fill to here) that were not mentioned. You had to do half the chopping before you even used the thing! I tried to warn him before he bought it, but he was trying to help, ya know? Thought it would help in kitchen prep. *sighs* Lesson learned!

    • The “as sold on tv” type products are never as easy to use as they say! The idea of cooking with something and not thoroughly cleaning it make me want to hurl. But not cleaning something *is* faster than cleaning it! They never said you wouldn’t get salmonella, just that it was fast!. Blech!

      • You notice how they throw in a bottle cleaner, too, right? Sneaky buggers. They know that it takes more clean up than they are advertising. And, I dunno about you, but a cylinder shaped anything is harder to clean than a pan, period!

        • Exactly! I didn’t notice the bottle cleaner, but I rewatched the video and there it was. VERY SNEAKY!!

    • Nothing would make me run out to buy one…except………………..nope, nothing would make me run out and buy one.

  5. It looks like a taquito! If I wanted a taquito, I’d have a taquito. This is just weird. If you want to save time, eat cereal! Or hard-boil some eggs and put them in the fridge for the next morning. Or I don’t know..take the 30 seconds it takes to fry a egg. You really do find the best stuff. You really do.

    • All very good points, Tamara…but I have to point out that The Rollie EggMaster is the *only* way you can eat your eggs on a stick. And who doesn’t want that? 😀

  6. Oh boy – I’m no culinary queen and I’m always looking for quick meals to make but this…this…no…just wrong on soooo many levels!! I don’t even think my garbage-disposal-stomach of a son would eat this!

    • Hahahahaha. This made me laugh because I don’ think my son would touch them either…and that’s saying something!! 😀

  7. Oh goodness. Tubular breakfast. I’m sure those would be great for kids to shove in their pockets on their way to school right alongside the tootsie rolls and smarties. I will admit though, looking at them did sort of make me hungry. What’s wrong with me?

    • OOOh, good point! You can stick a column of eggs in you pocket and nosh on them all through the day! Yum!!

      I can’t believe the picture made you hungry. Oh, girl….

    • Have to agree with you there, Kristen! String cheese…yes! Churros…yes. Cylindrical egg…not so much.

    • You most certainly have a bagel, Crystal! I’ll join you! Weird stuff is everywhere on Pinterest….if you know where to look. Search “upcycle” and you’ll see…

  8. You guys do a great job of finding horrible things on pinterest. I still use an old-fashioned skillet that takes 2 minutes to cook the eggs and a whole another 30 seconds to clean. Unfortunately, I can’t get them to stay on a skewer, dang it.

    • And there’s the rub…you’ve got to have The Rollie if you want that easy to eat shape!! And did you notice you can take it to the office, too! Who doesn’t want an egg loaf while they empty out their inbox?!

    • It looks exactly like a log! Great in a fireplace but not so appetizing on your breakfast plate!

    • Worry warts like us just have to eat our food cooked the conventional way, I guess. What a bummer. 🙁

    • The tube of eggs is especially gross as you’re going over the spread sheets for the big account, right? Ew!

  9. eggs shaped like a tube? Uh, no. And, never trust anything food gadget that says “no need to wash with soap and water”. Uh, germs? Gross! Followed you from SITS. Thanks for the horrible images in my head now. 🙂 Have a blessed day!

    • I can’t imagine not cleaning something with soap and water that is used for FOOD. UGH. Sorry for the mental image hounding you into the weekend!
      Whenever I need a good image to oust grossness, I go here: Works every time!

    • I agree, Mariann! I think the comment section is often the very best part of any post! 😀

      I’m with you, eggs in a tube are not my thing.

    • Did you mean pop or poop? Actually, now that I think of it, they both work, don’t they?! 😀

  10. It always cracks me up how incompetent the people in the infomercials are. I am not a professional chef, but I can cook without making that big of a mess! Seriously? Not even my husband makes that large of a mess in the kitchen!!

    • Hahahahaha. You’re so right, Rabia. That’s the best part of infomercials. Those people get so frustrated doing the simplest things! They can’t even eat conventional egg shapes! 😀

    • You’re so right, Amber. The last thing I need in the wee hours of the morning is my kids waving their tubular eggs all around the kitchen.

    • But scrambled is *such* a hard shape to eat, Joi! You can’t just grab a fist full and run! Hahahahaha

  11. I love the person *trying* to stir the scrambled eggs. Like it’s really that fucking hard.

    Also, those eggs on a stick look disgusting. Like a corn dog. Except even more disgusting.

    • Bwahahahaha. Watching them show how hard it is to cook and eat eggs that aren’t in a tube is my favorite part of the video…except where the dude grabs the egg log in his bare hand and walks out the door….GAH!!

  12. My husband would probably like one of these…especially b/c the hard boiled egg microwave thingy (which I thought was genius) exploded one day!!

    • I didn’t even know there was a microwave hard boiled thingy. That sounds awesome (except for the exploding part, I guess)

    • Hahahaha. EXACTLY, Jennifer! Eggs on a stick is *completely* normal and appetizing! Who wants the mess and hassle of conventional cooking? We’re so lucky to live in the era of The Rollie.

  13. Okay, that’s just weird! I wonder what sort of egg catastrophe brought about this invention. It’s also kinda gross that you don’t clean the inside. Yuck!

    • Hahahahaha. I shudder to think what warped mind brought us The Rollie. He/she must have a thing for tubed food. Yes, that’s not odd at all!!

  14. I saw this on Anderson Live the other day. Even if I did eat eggs I would not try this… doesn’t look appetizing. I’m willing to bet it takes the same amount of time to cook an egg as it would to plug in, warm up and put the egg in the tubie thing, etc.

    • True, Jeanne….but if you cook it the normal way you have the old fashioned egg shape to deal with. At least with The Rollie your eggs are in the awesome log form that is SO much easier to eat! ;D

  15. Well, I must say- I think it looks FANTASTIC!! I mean who wouldn’t want to spend that much money on something so amazing! Pff. JUST KIDDING!!!! No…Pinterest… No. 😉

    • When you consider all the vertical cooking technology you get per dollar, you realize what a great deal it really is!! 😀

  16. I can’t believe I’ve lived my whole life without “vertical cooking technology!” How have I survived?! And all the time I’ve wasted making eggs in such hard-to-eat shapes! Thank you, Eggmaster!

    LOL. This kind of stuff cracks me up. Thanks for sharing. 🙂

    • Hahahahaha. We’re on the same wavelength, Melissa!! It’s a miracle we’ve survived all these years!! 😀

  17. Is it totally weird that I want it? NOW!!
    I guess we have a new definition for lazy…me.
    But it’s kinda pricey for me 🙁 Also, wouldn’t it start to smell after a while if you don’t clean the inside?

    • We agree, Jennifer! One wonders how the inventor decided that tubes of eggs were the next breakfast craze!

  18. Even with all of the icky comments, I still want the darn thing. It is made by Kalorik, so how bad could it really be? Plus, think about how many square eggs you’ve eaten on fast food dishes and how those eggs REALLY got into that breakfast burrito you ate. People microwave uncooked eggs to get scrambled eggs and you would never know. Am I nuts?

    • Melissa…you have to *promise* us that you will send us a picture (or a video!) if you decide to get one! Pretty please?!! We’ve never had a personal testimonial from a Pinterest Nightmare. You could be our first!!!

  19. My 5yo loves sausage and with her getting ready for 1st grade, I need breakfast to be as easy as possible. This device just might be the ONE! *swoons*. Jennice visiting from #SITSsharefest

    • The office part KILLED ME!! Where are you supposed to keep the raw eggs until you cook them…in your file cabinet? Bwahahaha!

  20. Thank you so much for sharing this. I have been looking for ways to waste my money on things that should never have been invented. This fits the bill perfectly.


    • Bwhahahahahahaha! I cannot stop laughing. That should be the Pinterest Nightmare tag line “helping you waste your money on things that should never have been invented”. Brilliant!!

  21. BARF! They kind of look like egg spring rolls wrapped in vomit. Ew.

    Why would anyone want their eyes in a link form? I’ve never said to myself “I’d really like some eggs, but I don’t want them the boring circular way.”

    And yet, it’s hilarious at the same time. Sometimes I really question what people pin and why.

    • Hahahahaha. I know!! Who THOUGHT of this thing?! If you really want to question pins, just search “upcycled”…

  22. When I first saw the picture of the egg popping out of the machine, I thought the egg on the stick looked like a very bizarre tampon. Not gonna lie. Either was you slice it, more than slightly gross. I especially hated the weird egg hot dog looking thing they had for “college dorm rooms.” Ew.

    • I could not agree more. The first time I saw it popping out of the top I wasn’t sure what was going on. Gross. I guess they figure college kids aren’t picky when it comes to “homemade” food especially when you don’t actually wash the appliance! EW!

    • You make an excellent point, Leah. I’d love to see my husband’s face, too. I’d want to see ALL of their faces as I presented them with this very special breakfast. If the entire thing were a little cheaper, it might almost be worth it for that alone!!

  23. That’s just disgusting. Unappetizing. It’s so annoying how commercials over exaggerate the difficulties of a task just to sell their item…I cook eggs for my family every morning…honestly it takes my kids longer to get out cereal bowls, cereal and milk, pour the cereal and milk and eat it than it does for me to throw a few eggs in a pan…and because the eggs are hot…they eat them up super fast. Oh Pinterest. We r not as gullible and incapable as you think we are. Thanks for the laughs ladies!

    • I always laugh hysterically at how HARD infomercials make every task seem. It always makes me wonder how that poor actor kept from cracking up every time they had to go through those motions. Hahahaha!

  24. This is just plain bizarre…who would have thought? Egg on a stick…you can eat it just like a corndog. You guys come up with the funniest things! I have bought a couple “just seen on tv things” in my day so I can’t laugh too hard here. But I am anyway.

    • Oh, we’ve bought a thing or two like this ourselves, Michelle! They usually don’t work out, but you just never know!! That’s what keeps us coming back!! (but not eggs on a stick. That’s a step too far)
