Egg piercer

Egg piercer, "push down" variant, pushed down to reveal the pin

An egg piercer pierces the air pocket of an eggshell with a small needle to keep the shell from cracking during hard-boiling.[1] If both ends of the shell are pierced, the egg can be blown out while preserving the shell (for crafts). It was invented by Paul Pelzel in 1966.
