    Does anybody have/or know where I can buy an egg holder that sits on your counter-top and looks kind of like a Christmas tree (but with eggs)?
    When I was in New Zealand I stayed at a hostel and they had one.
    It was the cutest thing!
    I like the taste and fluffiness of room temp. eggs, but I want something cute to put them it.

    Any Christmas tree egg holders? [​IMG]

    Never heard of it.

    Can you google a pic of it?

    Jenn,

    You are amazing. I like both of those. Our counter tops are too tiny as they are.


    We need a bigger home with a HUGE kitchen.

    HI THERE! That kind of "Christmas Tree" egg holder was originally designed specifically for French cafes where they stood on the counter filled with hard-boiled eggs, for the customers to eat as a snack, with their drinks!I have one that I bought in Paris in the 1960's but now I think you can buy them outside France. I would try somewhere like: www.williams.sonoma.com As I live in the UK I would try British cooking utensil-shops but I remember being impressed by Williams Sonoma's stock when I was working in the US. They were also very helpful. I hope this helps--I hope you find one soon.

    There is also a type that you put the eggs in the back and they roll forward as you take one out to keep the stock rotated. I can't think what it is called right now. [​IMG]
