    Ok, a couple of weeks ago, someone posted this spiral thing to store eggs in. It had a spiral and you put the eggs in the top, they roll toward the bottom. You take eggs from the bottom of the spiral so that the oldest ones are on the bottom and the newest on the top. I really want one, but I forgot what it was called and I am having a rough time finding it on the internet.

    Can anyone offer help?

    thanks!

    That looks pretty sweet! I wish I could justify spending fifty bucks on an egg holder ><

    I know, I was hoping that I could find one similar, but it looks like the place in the UK is the only one selling it.

    What a fantastic idea! DP is always hassling me about not putting the "new" eggs on one side of the basket so he knows which ones to eat first. I showed him this and he now wants me to make one.... reckons I could do it with some wooden dowels and just have a single sloping straight run.

    Sounds like a fun project to try/. [​IMG]
