Many Japanese "chindogu" (crazy gadgets) are only good because their weirdness makes them great conversation pieces, but the Shirouma Tamago Egg Shaker can really make a difference in your kitchen. Together with your microwave oven, this handy little utensil helps you cook eggs in a variety of delicious ways, including Japanese "chawanmushi" savory custard. And because you won't be adding any oil to cook them, your meals will be healthy as well!
As you can see from the video below, using the Shirouma Tamago Egg Shaker is really easy: you just break the egg, pour it in the cup (unless you are going for the meringue, in which case you use the device's separator to keep the yolk out), add the ingredients you want, and shut it.
After that, as the name suggests, you shake it and put it in the microwave. Then you can enjoy delicious scrambled eggs, pudding, poached eggs or chawanmushi in mere seconds! This is a gadget you will be using again and again for everything from breakfast to dinner parties.
