Do people still do that saline injection thing? you could do that and put half of one of these over top…


#3

The recipe for the sauce is in the video. It is Tonkatsu sauce, ketchup, and mayo.


#4

DELICIOUS KEWPIE MAYO. mmmmm. I keep forgetting to buy some. No time like the present!


#5

It won’t seem so cute after li’l Betty digs in to the pet rabbit with a fork or is mauled by a bear after getting soy sauce in its eyes.


#6

the horror


#7

of it all…


#8

Who boils an egg for 12 mins


#9

I misread that as “Mold and hard boiled eggs…”


#10

Dig in Kids! SAVOR their featureless YELLOWGREEN BRAINS!

ok. very cute. Bought a couple for my wife, who likes to make hard-boiled eggs, as a silly little novelty gift. It’s shipping from Asia, though, so the delivery estimate is around 4 weeks give or take.

When I was a kid my mother had a mold that would shape hard boiled eggs into a cube. I’m surprised no one thought of this sooner.


#13

Maybe it takes that long for the heat to go through the silicone (I assume) mold? I imagine it would be a fair to middling insulator.


#14

Errr…
The boiling part is done without the plastic.


#15

I can think of some other shapes that would be a hit.


#16

Looks like they added the eggs to cold water then brought it to a boil, which keeps the eggs from cracking. They turn the heat down after the water comes to a boil, so they’re actually simmering the eggs. The lower heat keeps the yolks from turning green.


#17

I wonder if this works with century eggs.


#18

decomposing zombie bunny/bear! great for halloween!


#19

Oh. I assumed you put the egg in the mold before you boil it. It didn’t occur to me that you could mold a hot hard-boiled egg. Last time I assume something (yeah, right).

I wonder if it would work for a hundred-year-old egg?

Edit: @ficuswhisperer beat me to it, like two hours ago. Well, I assumed I was first. That’s absolutely the last time I assume something.

The sauce is listed in the video.

Is it acceptable to tell Boing Boing to RTFA?
