Unitasker Wednesday: Plastic Egg Mold

All Unitasker Wednesday posts are jokes — we don’t want you to buy these items, we want you to laugh at their ridiculousness. Enjoy!

Today we’d like to introduce another eggsquisite unitasker, the plastic egg mold. Made of rubber, these molds squish hard-boiled eggs into rabbit or bear faces.

To use these molds, simply boil the eggs. Peel the shell off the eggs when they are very hot. Drop the hot eggs into the mold and close the lid. Submerse the closed mold in cold water for 10 minutes and your eggs will be shaped.

Personally, I am not interested in peeling hot, hard-boiled eggs. The eggs turn out better when they are cooled then peeled anyway. I am also not interested in yet another “hand-wash only” item. I prefer everything to be dishwasher-safe.

I suppose an item like this would amuse children and maybe get them to eat more eggs — maybe. Or we could just save money, space in our cupboards, and stop unitasker from ending up in the landfill if we taught kids to eat non-decorative foods.

    Normally I like to laugh at the Unitasker Wednesday posts. Today I must say that I own these. And they bring joy whenever I use them. They are a bit ridiculous, sure. But joy is priceless. You aren’t peeling the eggs when they are ‘hot’, you peel them when they are still warm. I also find that using medium eggs with these is better than using large or jumbo eggs.

    These are for bento boxes, it’s weird to call this out without mentioning the cultural background of *why* they exist and def rings as kinda culturally insensitive. You’ve done great in making sure Unitasker Wednesdays don’t come across as abelist, it’d be nice to see that same care taken with different cultures.
