5 Best Egg Molds to Shape Eggs Consistently

Product Reviews, Blog

YouTube video

It seems as though egg molds are endlessly useful.

With the round one, you can make perfect circles that can be used to cook eggs

…or cook biscuits, burgers, and just about anything else you want to shape. 

There are also shapes designed for hard-boiled eggs…

…that can be used as cookie cutters, and those that work best…

…after eggs have been boiled can make excellent shapes.

It’s a great way to take your cooking to a professional level…

…no matter what egg mold you use.

We’ve compiled our favorite egg molds to get you started.

Jane will share some thoughts before we move on to the next section…

As far as I can tell, the egg molds function properly.

It took me several attempts to learn how to oil the rings so they wouldn’t leak egg.

I also had to figure out the right temperature to cook the egg.

Due to my toaster making only one muffin at once, I usually cook one at time.

It is unlikely that I will ever cook all three at the same time.

I will try them with pancake batter,

but no one in my house seemed enthusiastic about having silver dollar pancakes.

Now is the time get started…

What to Look for When Buying Egg Molds


You can buy egg molds in a variety of forms.

These include rings, cups, and fun shapes.

Cooking egg circles or patties in ring molds is best…

…for building breakfast sandwiches or topping burgers.

In addition to fun shapes like hearts and stars…

…ring molds are available in many different colors.

These molds can be purchased individually or in sets.

Ring molds are designed to cook one egg at a time.

It is best to cook egg bites in cups.

Using a cup mold, you can cook egg bites…

…or individual frittatas filled with cheese, meat, and/or vegetables.

Similar to a muffin tin, this mold usually holds several eggs at once.

Capacity varies by brand and style.

Kids of all ages enjoy egg molds that transform eggs into fun shapes…

…such as the dinosaur mold on this list.

Egg molds come in the shape of hearts, stars, cars, and more.


Metal, silicone, or plastic are the materials used to make egg molds.

A mold’s material determines its cooking method…

…temperature range, and dishwasher-safety.

Most stainless steel and silicone egg molds can be used on the stovetop or in the oven.

Metal nots cannot be used in a microwave, but silicone molds can.

Most plastic egg molds are intended to be used in the microwave…

…or for adding a design to hard-boiled eggs after they have been cooked.

Plastic egg molds cannot be used in the oven or on the stovetop.

In metal egg molds, the nonstick coating helps the egg release easily from the mold.

It’s a good idea to lightly grease metal egg molds, regardless of whether they’re nonstick.

In addition to being easy to release, silicone molds don’t stick to food…

…as metallic cookware does, allowing them to be easily peeled away from the food.

It’s not necessary to pre-grease silicone molds…

…but a small amount of cooking spray won’t hurt…

…if you want your egg bites to come out whole.

“Silicone is less likely to stick to your eggs (though cooking spray also helps) and is lighter for easier storage.” 

Jen Fiegel – Commerce Editor


Except for hard-boiled egg molds, most ring and cup egg molds can be used…

…for more than just cooking eggs.

You can also use ring molds to make perfectly circular pancakes.

You can use silicone cup molds to freeze baby food purees…

…make ice cubes, or bake other treats.

Here’s the main part…
