The Rollie Eggmaster is the Best Dumbest Cooking Device Ever Invented

Last week, my friend Melissa showed me a picture of a cooking device called the Rollie® Eggmaster Vertical Grill. It’s one of those “As Seen on TV” products. Basically, it’s designed to cook eggs in a tubular form for an easy on-the-go egg eating experience. Apparently eating and cooking eggs is a very difficult endeavor for many people. Plus, when you’re eating eggs, you really want them cooked in a format in which you can pick up those jiggly fuckers and walk around with them using your (probably filthy) bare hands. This has been a huge issue for egg eaters since the beginning of time.

Here is the commercial for the Eggmaster:

It uses “vertical cooking technology.” I guess horizontal cooking technology wasn’t good enough. As you can see, it’s truly a remarkable product. It is also very, very, stupid.

Rollie Eggmaster

The Eggmaster is about the size of an insulated travel mug. It even looks like a travel mug. It comes with a few wooden skewers and a sponge to clean out its insides once you sully them with some unfertilized chicken eggies. Its electric cord is very very short.

The recipe book has some pretty interesting recipes. Did I say interesting? I’m sorry, I meant “horrendous.”

For example, here is a recipe straight from the Eggmaster cookbook:

Energy Bar


1 large egg white

2 Tbsp dried fruit and nut trail mix

1 tsp brown sugar


  • Spray Eggmaster cooking chamber with nonstick cooking spray.
  • Mix all the ingredients in a bowl and pour into the Eggmaster cooking chamber. Do not fill the cooking chamber more than half-way.
  • Make sure the food in the cooking chamber is slightly covered with egg white.
  • Cook 5-7 minutes, until the food rises out of the cooking chamber. To remove the food, tilt the appliance and gently prod the food out with a skewer.

I’ve never seen an energy bar that mixed an egg white and brown sugar, with fruit and nuts. That is a fruit and nut omelette. Holy shit. It’s like a mommy blogger wrote this recipe. This is already a bad idea. That’s precisely why this cooking machine is perfect for my trainwreck lifestyle.

Rollie Eggmaster Ingredients

I bought a few ingredients that I thought might work okay in the Eggmaster. Things like eggs, hot dogs, and meat sticks for babies.

More Rollie Eggmaster Ingredients

You can supposedly make hamburgers and pancakes in the Eggmaster too. I just went to the grocery store and looked for things I could make that could eventually take the shape of a penis.

The Rollie Eggmaster Anus

Whenever you get a new cooking device, you have to pay it some respect and use it for its original intended use before you go experimenting like a jackass. So I cooked two eggs in it as instructed. I sprayed some nonstick spray into it, cracked two eggs into it (which made a strange farting noise as they went down, which was encouraging), and waited until the eggs finished cooking. The egg tube was supposed to rise up at the end to indicate it was done cooking. Then you’re supposed to “prod the food out with a skewer.”

What happened next was beyond my wildest dreams. I took a video. Watch it until the end because there’s a surprise.

The Rollie Eggmaster shits out your eggs. I’m not sure you read that correctly. I will repeat it one more time. The Rollie Eggmaster shits out your eggs.

The instructions say that the eggs will rise, not that they will actually come all the way out of the Eggmaster. I tried it a second time and the Eggmaster actually ejected the entire tube onto the floor.

“This is the best thing I have ever seen,” I said, cackling to myself. “This is an egg shitting device.”

Also, when the Eggmaster is on, it emits the smell of burning plastic, which is not something I normally look for in cooking equipment. I prepared myself mentally for death in case my apartment burned down while I watched an egg get shat out onto the floor.

Rollie Egg

This is the egg tube from the video. When you cut it in half, you can see it’s pretty much the same thing as a hard-boiled egg. The texture is a little crispy on the outside and the inside is hard-cooked. Whatever. I ate it and it tasted fine, though that burning plastic smell made me wonder if I just got cancer.

Old Folks Sausage

A recipe mentioned a pancake and sausage roll — I ate one once or twice in high school. It’s like a breakfast corn dog, where the hot dog part is a breakfast sausage, and the batter is made of pancake. Good ol’ America.

For this test, I found this cool brand of breakfast sausage called “Old Folks.” I’m not sure why that’s in quotation marks. Also, I hoped that the sausage was actually made out of old folks. The label certainly made it seem that way.

Once I opened the package I expected a whiff of old man smell, but I found out that it’s just regular breakfast sausage. I suppose it could be made of really old pigs.

Rollie Sausage Pancake

I put the meat onto a skewer, and formed the log with my hands to fit the hole. I fit my log in your mom’s hole last night. I’m sorry, that was rude of me to say. It just slipped out, forgive me. Then I poured the batter into the hole and jammed the log into it as far as it would go. Coincidentally, I also poured batter into your mom’s hole and jammed my log into it as far as it would go.

I apologize for this behavior. It won’t happen again.

Rollie Sausage Pancake Cooking

Not long after it started cooking, the meat started rising out of the hole like the egg, but it stopped halfway. I guess the sausage constipated the Eggmaster. That wasn’t a good sign though — that meant the meat by the opening probably wasn’t fully cooked.

Rollie Sausage Pancake Finished

I took the sausage skewer out and found myself looking at what appeared to be a turd covered in a sticky white mucus-like substance. I’ve actually seen a few movies that ended this way.

Rollie Sausage Pancake Finished Autopsy

As I feared, the pancake-covered sausage didn’t cook all the way through. I wiped the tears from my eyes and decided to try something different.

Rollie Baby Food

Well, since the uncooked sausage didn’t work, I figured I should try a cooked product covered in pancake batter. I chose the Gerber® Graduates® lil’ sticks® meat sticks, which are chewed up and reformed meat sticks for babies (yes, it really has that many registered trademark symbols). The front of the jar says it’s turkey with canola oil, but the first two ingredients are pork and beef, so they’re lying to you and your children.

I ate one of the sticks. They don’t taste very good. They’re like a bizarro version of a Vienna Sausage. They have a slightly off-putting smoky flavor and are soft enough for babies to gum down easily. This is what you feed your children if you want them to turn out like me, an utter failure who hates himself, poses stuffed animals for photos, and spends his Sundays watching a cooking device shit eggs onto the floor.

Rollie Baby Food Pancake

As you can see, that worked out well. The pancake never cooked through and the skewer came straight out of the meat, so I had to extract everything with a chopstick. I did try a little, and it tasted like spongy mechanically-separated bullshit in undercooked pancakes.

Everything I do ends in failure.

Rollie Cheeseburger

I made one last thing — a cheese stuffed hamburger tur — er, kabob. See that pool of grease? That’s what came out of the meat. Basically, the meat boiled in its own absurd amount of fat. At least the skewer didn’t give up this time. Not like you did on me, Dad.

Rollie Cheeseburger Autopsy

The texture was like steamed meatloaf stewing in its own fat, rubbery, spongy, and disappointing. At least it was cooked all the way through, and the cheese melted. I still couldn’t help feeling like this whole experiment was a pile of horseshit. I gave up on the six other ingredients I bought for this project and I will eat those as God intended, prepared as the package says, in the darkness of my closet, seasoned with my own tears.

Rollie Egg Penis

In order to make myself feel better about the whole thing, I decided to cook one last egg tube, except I jammed a mushroom on the tip. Maybe laughing at a simulated egg penis would alleviate my despair.

The mushroom jammed the egg into the tube and I had to “prod it out with a skewer.” Plus it looked like me before I got that bris done yesterday. And it snapped off. The tip of my egg penis snapped off. I couldn’t even make an egg penis properly with this beautiful piece of shit.

But if I have to say something about this whole thing, despite its catastrophic flaws, it’s that the Rollie® Eggmaster Vertical Grill is still probably the best thing I’ve ever used to cook food, because it consistently screws everything up.

And that’s a comforting fact. It reminds me of…me.

I’m going to go shit the rest of the eggs onto the floor now.

    I can’t imagine why a normal person would want this in their house, but the technology exists because of your (well, my) fellow normal Americans anyway—specifically, that they were a pain in the ass about hardboiled eggs on airplanes. People who got the ass end of the egg with all white apparently bitched about it, and the airlines, rather than simply not serving hardboiled eggs (seriously, United, what are you, a German dive bar in 1913?), spent $500 billion to develop continuous tubes of egg with perfect ratios of white to yolk in every slice.

      That’s really strange. Because apparently it’s a “problem” now for some people. At home. Anyway, this thing shits out eggs and that is amazing.

      The Eggmaster loves you right back. It truly is the crossroads of cooking technology and disappointment. I’m glad you enjoyed this post mostly because it took me forever to do.

    The photo of the end/opening of the eggmasterroller made me seriously concerned that somewhere in this post you were going to admit to putting your penis in there and telling us that it was a terrible idea and you were sorry.

    Dumbest Review. It will really going to “shit out” the egg on the floor if you will not use the skewers. I have one at home at it’s really good. Only “dumb headed jerks” will come up with “dumb reviews” like this. Maybe it’s you who shit out your brain. lols.

    I think this will take over as the worst Christmas gift since the foot bath thingo. Mine was a gift and the male of the house threw out the instruction book before we even used it. So i came across your review when trying to find out how to get a new book (I didnt). My egg just sat and moped in the machine for what seemed like hours, but was I guess about 20 minutes. No movement at all. I eventually stuck the skewer in and pulled it put. (Yes I had washed and sprayed the machine first). It would have been much quicker and easier to simply put the egg in a saucepan of water. At least then I would know when to expect it was cooked.

    Hey not for nothing, I love the rolle eggmaster. I wake up and throw two eggs in it. Put the coffee on Keurig. Do my thing – i come out and put a tortilla in microwave with a little cheese.. I put the rolle on the tortilla and roll it up. I take some salsa on each bite and it’s a great breakfast egg and cheese wrap 🙂

    Actually, I was just looking for a hard boiled egg cooker where I DON’T HAVE TO PEEL THE EGGS AFTER. This seemed like a good idea. But only 2 eggs? I need to cook 6 to 8 at a time to make egg salad. Why doesn’t someone make a long, safe-plastic tube you can boil in water? Yes, this is a funny but profane post and video, shocking my delicate 76 year old lady sense of propriety. I might get one anyway.

    The one I bought came from China, so instructions were, of course, in chinese. I searched the internet for instructions in English, to no avail. Then I stumbled across your site, and as a result am about to go play with my egg-shitting machine. Thank you.

    You clearly didnt read the part in the manual, genius, which says to use pre cooked meat…which is why your meat didnt cook through. Smh.
