Chris built his Egg Jacuzzi along the basic design of the Incredible Eggwasher that sells for about $116. The Egg Jacuzzi is incredibly simple and inexpensive to make, and you can save a bundle by building one yourself.
Step by step instructions follow along with a brief video.
|The end result is sparkling clean, sanitized eggs.|
|You need a five-gallon food safe bucket.|
1. Start with a food safe plastic 5-gallon bucket. 2. Measure the bottom. 3. Using PVC plumbing, form a square with a bar across the middle that will fit in the bottom of the bucket. 4. Drill holes in the pipe, angling the holes toward center. 5. Make an upright piece the height of the bucket, add an elbow, and attach a ball valve. 6. An electric 2.1 cu. ft. psi air compressor works well. The chuck on the end of the hose needs to attach to a quick connect on the PVC pipe.
If you're cleaning two dozen eggs, two gallons of water with egg wash works fine. The weight disc on top of the eggs keeps them in place. Gently put the egg basket into the Egg Jacuzzi and turn on the air compressor. The ball valve can adjust the air flow to the eggs. The eggs need 15 minutes in the Egg Jacuzzi and then a clean water Jacuzzi rinse.
Chris says, "It's important to regulate the airflow so the eggs get uniform bubble action. That gets them evenly washed and sanitized. I don't like the idea of using chlorine but I like the idea of an unsanitized egg even less."
