Has the quest for the perfect boiled egg always seems just slightly out of your reach? You might need to bookmark Just Boil It in that case, one of the weirder online cooking aids we've seen.

The site has step-by-step instructions on getting started, then runs a graphical egg timer, letting you know exactly what's happening inside your boiling egg (soft, medium and hard), as well as warning you when it's all gone on just a little too long.

It's made by the same people who did Just Roast It, the rather more practical cooking guide that can help you determine the best roasting time and heat for a variety of different meats and weights. Just Roast It is actually a fantastic cooking tool, but we'd suggest mastering the egg, before heading onto the goose.
