Discussion[edit]

Barbara Shack 18:26, 18 January 2006 (UTC)I added an image of an Hour glass. The image already links to the Hourglass article. There is permission to copy it. Barbara Shack 17:24, 19 January 2006 (UTC)I added an explanation why timing is needed. People from Non-western cultures frequently don't boil eggs in the shell. Therefore I gave a thorough explanation.

Barbara Shack 15:03, 4 February 2006 (UTC)I wrote, "In Britain during the 20th Century traditional hourglass egg timers were frequently sold as Souvenirs at Tourist attractions." I then checked with some one who has been on holiday more recently than I have. My informant assures me that are still sold as tourist souvenirs. If my informant was wrong the article may need modification.

Old article was junk, I completely redid it. --Chrisdab 16:10, 22 October 2006 (UTC)

It looks much better now, thanks for the revision. Maxpowersmd 04:26, 16 September 2007 (UTC)

Would it be more accurate to say only that the 'egg timer measures a set amount of time'? The time to cook an egg is not a static figure, it depends on many variables. The purpose was to help you cook an egg, but that is not what the device measures. Flimsyq (talk) 03:53, 2 January 2008 (UTC)

How long does an egg meter usualy last before going off? Could someone add this to the artcle? M11rtinb (talk) 18:22, 20 August 2014 (UTC)
