Sunsella Silicone Egg Rings

 I was quite excited to give these silicone egg rings a try. I have always wanted to make the perfect egg in the perfect circle like at the restaurants. 
They are a beautiful vibrant red color which actually is quite appealing to the eye in my opinion.
My 1st attempt I broke my egg :(
It seeped out under the silicone ring. I thought it was a mistake on my part at first. I went ahead and let it cook and you can see when I removed the ring, it ended up leaving a perfect ring. Not exactly what I expected, but I still had my circle egg. No one knew the difference. It is also a great size for sandwich bread. 

My second attempt I looked at the ring and noticed it does not sit flat on my pan. My pan is flat so there is no mistaking that part. The egg seeped out a bit, but much better and again no one will ever know about the leaking under the ring. I do however wish it layer flat better. 

I tried to do an omelet this time and well I had a new technique. I was going to use a spatula to press down the egg ring. That didn't work either and you really need to hold it down for a while to keep the blended egg in place. It works much better without scrambling the egg. In order to be able to flip the egg you have to cook the egg a lot in order to remove the ring to get the circle or somewhat of a circle. 

I had to overcook it in order to get it to set enough to flip it.

My final thoughts, 
It helps make circle shaped eggs to fit your sandwich bread I think it will be a little larger than a muffin. While it doesn't sit perfectly and there is some seepage if you get a technique down it will help with perfecting the shape better. I wish it worked better and the seal was better on the pan, but no one will know that there was any issue with your egg if you are preparing it for them unless you tell them. It still make you look like you know what your doing and it is nice to use. I found that holding or pressing the egg ring down for a few seconds or so help with setting the edges so it won't seep out from underneath.
