The Rollie Eggmaster Cooking System turns omelets into sausages
The Rollie Eggmaster Cooking System serves omelets up in the style of a skinless sausage
The Rollie Eggmaster Cooking System offers a new and rather novel way of cooking eggs, utilizing "vertical cooking technology" to deliver sausage-shaped omelets of all kinds onto your breakfast plate.
Rollie claims that the system requires you merely to crack eggs and pour them into the Eggmaster Cooking System, which then does the rest. The sausage-shaped omelet will pop up out of the top of the appliance when cooked ... making it more like toasting bread than actual cooking. The system works by virtue of a "cylindrical non-stick cooking surface surrounded by a revolutionary heating element."
How many people actually find cooking eggs to be the chore the video below makes it out to be is debatable, but the company claims other advantages over traditional cooking methods; these being the lack of added fat or butter, and less mess. Rollie also claims you're guaranteed "perfect eggs" every time.
The Rollie Eggmaster Cooking System is only available to order online to those in the continental United States. At the time of writing the price is US$29.99 plus $9.99 postage and handling fees. It can be seen in use below.

They say that necessity is the mother of invention, so who was it that needed eggs in wiener shape?
it wasn't the abflex 5000, the snuggie was a disappointment and my automatic christmas card sorter wasn't the time saver I thought it would be. But this time I am sure of it- the Rollie Eggmaster is the key to my happiness & the answer to everything that is wrong in my life!
For much of my life I've lamented the utter mismatch in the shapes of my two favourite breakfast dishes besides bacon. Eggs are round and flat and sausages are cylindrical. Years of experimentation trying to develop egg-shaped sausages were a complete failure and cost me many sessions of expensive therapy as well as the friendship of all those around me. They couldn't handle it and I know now that it wasn't their fault.
Imagine my surprise at seeing the innovative approach that the Rollie scientists took to the same problem! I'm not certain that cylindrical eggs are the complete answer as I question the wisdom of putting another item on my plate that might roll off. Preliminary experiments with toothpicks to prevent lateral motion have been promising, but at this point, I just don't know. There are also questions with the structural integrity - what happens if there's a pocket of cheese? Let alone the issue of the two ends looking different - is the top flat? Rounded like the bottom?
I will try it though. Dammit! I will!
Like the Hutzler 571 banana slicer, the Rollie Eggmaster looks like a kitchen must-have! The benefits to Mankind are almost incalculable. This brings us one step closer to World Peace.

You are all cynical b*stards, and I agree with you whole heartedly.
As a potential customer, I have a few questions:
1. Will the Rollie help me crack open eggs mess free as depicted in the commercial? 2. I have to have my eggs completely uniform in color. Will the Rollie beat the egg too or do I have to take on the arduous chore of washing another bowl? 3. How did they get that sausage to center perfectly within a jacket of egg? 4. Can I use the Rollie to cure cylindrical silicone products? 5. Most importantly, do you sell a smart phone adapter so I can have my breakfast on my morning bike commute?
I always add chopped onions, green pepper and coriander + black pepper to my omelets. So I assume that a second bowl wash up is a must.
Oh I forgot to mention, I like my omelets flat and round ! Can always make a sandwich out of them in a hurry.
Did gizmag use this device? Looks like they just reprinted the wizbang information for a chuckle. But what about me, the serious egg-making consumer who wants cylindrical eggs in my life, an omlet I don't have to fold and forever fail to make into a shellless breakfast taquito?
Dave Parrak, did you use it, like it and endorse it?
We haven't used this device, toller. This is merely an article talking of its existence. We do review products, but they would be labeled as a review, which this isn't. Sorry we can't be more help.
