For hundreds of years, boiled eggs have been the bane of picnics, packed-lunches and ordered dinner plates the world over. It’s their completely illogical shape. No use to man or beast a peeled, hard-boiled egg just won’t do as it’s told. Carry it in a loose lunchbox and it’ll get smooshed, Take it on a picnic and it’ll be rolled away by ants. Serve it on a plate and it’ll end up sliding about like a chubby figure skater. It’s enough to put you off oeufs for life.
At least, those were our feelings on the matter. But now we’ve discovered the Egg-Q-Ber and finally brought a little discipline to our dinner plate – because this startlingly nifty gadget will turn any peeled, hard boiled egg into an almost perfect cube.
The applications of this technology are impossible to count, but it’s at least 4. ‘How does it work?’ you ask? Good question. Simply take your freshly boiled and peeled egg and pop it in the Egg-Q-Ber, close the lid tightly and leave it for 1 minute. That’s it! After 60 anxious seconds you can remove your almost perfectly cubed egg, ready to stack neatly in a bento box, sit on a potato waffle, slather with devilling cream or slice into squares for perfectly uniform sandwich coverage. There, that’s another of life’s problem solved. What's next?
Turns freshly hard-boiled and peeled eggs into cubes
Brilliant innovative gadget better than eggs-pected.
Have perfected the cube by leaving in Q-ber as per directions for 2 mins and then turning a few more times, eggs-cellent results. Wendy, Birmingham - 5th December 2012
