J-BOX’s Bento Egg Shapers: How Eggciting!

J-BOX Egg ShaperJ-BOX Egg ShaperIntroducing the new Egg Shaper (yudetama gokko) from J-BOX


In North America, hard-boiled eggs rarely make a statement. (Perhaps they don’t know their rights like most of their people do.) They are just kind of there on the table in two shapes, round or sliced, even though sometimes a cute egg cup can render a new look. For the most part, hard boiled eggs are boring, but this is not the case in Japan where the folks at J-BOX have created the bento product Egg Shaper which will prepare boiled eggs in hundreds of different shapes ranging from rabbits to bears to fish to cars. The only limits to the shapes created by the J-BOX Egg Shaper would appear to be those of the bento product user’s own imagination.

What eggxactly is the Egg Shaper from J-BOX?


The Egg Shaper from J-BOX is designed to handle large eggs. Basically, the Egg Shaper is a mold inside of which the hot egg is placed. The Egg Shaper is then pressed closed and the entire kitchen gadget is submerged in cold water for ten minutes. Then you have your hard-boiled egg that strangely resembles either that Buick parked up the street or that fish your uncle caught last week in the pond.

Who created the Egg Shaper?


The Egg Shaper is a bento product created by an amalgam of folks at J-BOX whose mission is to bring their unique vision of Japanese culture to a hungry, waiting world. The people at J-Box are also determined to add even more character to bento lunches with their egg shaper and other bento products and have attracted more than 60,000 customers over the years since its creation in 1996.

The future of the Egg Shaper from J-BOX


The success of the Egg Shaper from J-BOX is doomed to continued happiness at the price of $3.50 per Egg Shaper. When you buy an Egg Shaper from J-Box, it comes with a pair of plastic square shapers that lock easily, and the fish and car versions measure less than three inches around.

So what are you waiting for? Enhance your bento lunch today with an Egg Shaper from J-BOX.

Happy bento!

interesting

should have seen the result though. Have they done molds that they can boil the egg in too?Whisk the egg and put in the mold and then boil it. Then again what they have is simpler and quicker and probably better though! Not into eggs since I tried a microwaved egg.

egg molds

 

Good point, but I don't know the answer.

Maybe they will come up with a mold that will also boil the egg.

in the meantime, thanks for your thoughts.
