I have done extensive research to help you choose the best egg baskets and skelters out of 9 different models. Find out which egg baskets and skelters you should consider and which ones to avoid!:
#1 Toplife Spiral Design Metal Egg Skelter
Toplife Spiral egg skelter holds around 32 eggs and is a great way to keep your eggs in order from newest to oldest. Most of the time eggs roll down on their own however occasionally you have to do it manually.
Toplife Spiral egg skelter feels well mate, metal quality is good. It’s very stable when full of eggs however when empty it does feel a bit tipsy. Base rotates in 360 degrees and has non-slip padding at the bottom for stability.
It doesn’t take much counter space – Toplife Spiral egg skelter is 6.9 inches wide, 6.9 inches long and 16.1 inches high. It weighs 1.9 lbs.
#2 MyGift Egg Basket
MyGift egg basket holds around 18 eggs (depending on their size). It’s 11 inches high, 9.25 inches wide and 9.5 inches deep. It has two wire handles so carrying it is easy.
MyGift egg basket feels well made and reasonably sturdy. Basket is made of metal mesh with black powder-coat finish and lid is in a shape of a chicken which makes it look cute.
#3 Southern Homewares SH-10175 Egg Skelter
Southern Homewares SH-10175 egg skelter holds around 24 eggs. Most of the time eggs don’t roll down by themselves so you have to roll them manually to keep them in order from newest to oldest.
Overall build quality feels mediocre (however it’s not terrible). It’s made of steel but it’s thin and very lightweight, doesn’t feel all that sturdy but is stable with eggs in it.
Southern Homewares SH-10175 egg skelter is 7.5 inches deep, 7.5 inches long and 10.63 inches high. Egg through is 1.9 inches wide.
#4 MyGift 2 Tier Storage Basket
MyGift basket has two tiers for storage – upper tier stores 36 eggs and lower basket can store even more than that. The holes on the tray are pretty big so unless your eggs are big they might fall through them. Some consumers also have complained about having a hard time sliding the top tray to access lower basket but most units don’t have this problem.
MyGift storage basket is 11.25 inches wide, 11.5 inches deep and 4.75 inches high.
#5 Simple and Neat Chrome Steel Wire Egg Basket
Simple and Neat egg basket is made of food-grade chrome plated steel and holds up to 20 eggs. It looks just like a chicken and handles are in shape of wings. Opening is small though so if you have big hands putting in/taking out eggs might be a bit difficult for you.
Simple and Neat egg basket is 7.3 inches long, 10 inches wide, 9.3 inches high and weighs 10.6 oz.
#6 KYY Spiral Design Egg Skelter

#7 TENINYU Egg Skelter
TENINYU egg skelter is made of powder coated steel and holds up to 20 eggs. Slide is pretty narrow so don’t expect for eggs to roll down unless they are small. Skelter could be more stable too.

#8 Trademark Innovations Wire Egg Basket
Trademark Innovations wire egg basket stores around 50 eggs. Basket is very spacious but the quality is lacking a bit, it doesn’t feel sturdy and handle is made of unfinished wood. It does look pretty nice with it’s Vintage style though.
