The invention relates to an apparatus for washing shell eggs (126;226) comprising a washing unit and an egg conveyor (4; 104) extending in a longitudinal direction from an egg in-feed (2;102) to an egg outlet (3) and having a transverse direction (T), where said longitudinal direction and said transverse direction define a conveyor plane (222). In the washing unit (6) a plurality of spray nozzles (129, 130;229) are arranged above the conveyor plane (222) so that in a first method step the eggs (126;226) can be subjected to a liquid jet from at least one first liquid spray nozzle (129;229) spraying in a first spray direction (135;235), which extends in a non-perpendicular angle in relation to the conveyor plane (222), and in a second method step the eggs can be subjected to a liquid jet from at least one second liquid spray nozzle (130) spraying in a second spray direction...
