An Australian woman left many perplexed after posting her mysterious kitchen find on a popular Facebook group
Users have revealed the unusual egg-like item which is used to easily remove the top of the shell from a hard or soft egg to prevent your fingers from burning.
“Does anyone know what this is, please?” she asked the group in the post.
The guesses ranged from a cocktail muddler, a vintage baby rattle to more X-rated items.
‘My God. I don’t think I want to know,” one joked.
“It looks like something you buy from an adult store,” said another.
Finally, the purpose of the confusing device was revealed as an egg topper by a few knowledgeable members.

‘It’s a stupid object. You can put one end on an egg and push it down to poke a hole in the egg shell,” one person explained.
“You put it on your boiled egg and pull the top and it creates a perfect cut/opening in the egg, then you can dip your toast in the runny yolk,” said another.
Once his identity was revealed, some still didn’t know how it would work.
An egg cover, featuring a spring-loaded mechanism that causes vibrations, helps the sharp edge of the dome cut through the top of the shell without damaging the interior.
The spring is activated by pulling the ball handle and top up and releasing.
