Shape Your Eggs!

February 20th, 2009

I love eggs; hard boiled, scrambled, sunny-side-up, omelette and so on! So almost every morning, I could hear sizzles of egg frying in the pan, I knew I am waking up to the tasty scrambled eggs with baked beans. Either that, or something similar – as long as its eggs! Then one morning, I woke up to something different, heart shaped hard boiled egg!

Along with a kiss, I got a happy birthday wish from my sweetheart. How sweet! But wait, how in the world did she shape the egg so perfectly??

Presenting to you, the Japanese egg shaper! Wow, I love this thing. Simple yet so creative! There is a new art in town, the art of creating beautiful, cute and outrageous lunch box – in Japan, its called Bento! Anyway, back to the egg shaper. The common shape they have now is the heart shape and the star shape.

How cool is that?

Now, you must be wondering – won’t the egg crush if you place it in the mold and close it? But not to worry, there is a method in doing anything. And this is the method of how you should use your Egg Shaper!

All you need to do is:
Step 1
Boil some medium-large eggs until they are hard boiled. Make sure you let really cool water to run over the boiled eggs, so the shell is easier to peel. Then, peel off the shell.
Step 2
While hot/warm, place the egg into the egg shaper with the pointy side facing up.
Step 3
Close the cover and press down until you hear the click of the container. Then, just leave it aside to cool down.
Step 4
Open up the shaper. Walla! Your shaped eggs!

Simple as that! Besides heart shape and star shape, they have the Fish and Car shapes too!

Where to get these cool egg shaper? Well, we got ours at Daiso, a newly opened specialty store in The Curve, Mutiara Damansara for MYR5! It’s really cheap!

For other countries, you can check out JBox. It’s about US$3.50 for a pair!
