Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, right? Despite knowing its significance in our day to day lives, many of us tend to skip the monotonous process of preparing a balanced first meal and jump right into the effortless cereal and milk solution. But now with the invention of Egguins, a cute little vessel, things are about to change. Now, who doesn't love a soft, gooey-centered, boiled egg in the morning with some crispy toast to go with it? Of course, people like me have a hard time getting them cooked to perfection and my clumsiness definitely doesn't help.
A company called Peleg Design has come up with the most adorable solution for such problems. This penguin egg cooker looks like the majestic bird once you pop in your eggs into the hollow space in their tummy. What's more, it comes with a heat resistant handle that can be used to pop in your eggs into boiling water and taking them out once they are done. So, having these cutesy little kitchen helpers are definitely a boon for helpless people like me who often end up splashing water here and there while using a ladle to carefully get all of them.
Of course, in doing so I often overcook these eggs and often end up burning my fingers because of the steam. But thanks to this brand new items, I won't have to fish around for these eggs for long! Now, the debate on how to perfectly cook an egg has been around for quite some time, and according to Delicious Meets Healthy, some people keep their eggs in warm water for 15 minutes or bake it in the oven for half an hour. But spending this much time just to get them cooked perfectly sounds a tad bit too much. I mean, who's got the time?
Coming to the general consensus among culinary experts, it takes between 6-7 minutes to get the perfect egg, and 4-5 minutes for a soft-boiled and 8-9 if you're going for a hard-boiled. Hopeless people like me tend to screw this up too, however, with the assistance and ease of these penguin-shaped egg holders, things could definitely be heading for a change. And, for the best part, the product also doubles as a brilliant serving vessel because of its impeccable design. So, just pop the eggs out one by one and gobble them up after removing its shell of course!
Now, if you still have some unused cooked eggs, you can simply store them in these holders and place them in your refrigerator! I'm sure this couldn't get any easier then it already is! Describing the use of this innovative design the company writes on the website: This small colony of penguins will hold up to 6 eggs together in the Arctic winter of your fridge or in the hot springs of your pot. The handle will always stay cool for pulling out safely from the boiling water and comfortable carrying to the table or fridge.
I'm sure you're wondering how the company came across this beautiful concept. Thankfully during an interview with an outlet, they explained how the egg itself was the inspiration as "the color and the form of the egg reminded us of the belly of a penguin." Furthermore, a representative from the company added, "At the same time, we were looking for a solution to improve the process of cooking a few eggs together, simultaneously. When we combined the new form and the new function, the Egguins family was born. Now, using the product creates a whole experience from the cooking to storage, in a fun way."
"The world of Peleg Design revolves around three basic principles: functionality, aesthetics, and humor. It is a world motivated by continuous curiosity with the explicit purpose to transform what was once an average, been-there-done-that concept into an innovative and truly exciting experience," said the rep of the philosophy behind it.
