How To Dice Hard Boiled Eggs


Have you ever seen hard boiled eggs diced into those perfect little cubes and wondered how they did that? It’s really easy to do as long as you have a wire egg slicer. I’m generally not a fan of single-purpose gadgets in the kitchen, but this one makes the cut.

Start by cutting perpendicular to the long axis, the way you would if you were just going to do slices.


Holding everything together, turn the egg a quarter turn and slice again.


One more quarter turn — it’s going to be really hard to hold it all together now.


And that’s it.
