The Perfect Egg Boiler

Half-boiled eggs (basically just soft-boiled eggs served out of their shells) are a Malaysian and Singaporean breakfast staple. Served in a bowl with a side of kaya (coconut jam) toast, it’s a uniquely Asian take on eggs and soldiers.

Getting the perfect soft-boiled egg is a tricky task. There are a thousand different methods, all slightly different, and it’s really a matter of trial and error to get that perfect egg.

Some of us more ignorant egg cookers have been missing out on a gadget that’s been used in Asia for decades. Simply titled the ‘half-boiled egg maker’, it’s a simple plastic device that takes all the difficulty out of boiling eggs.

Just put the kettle on and place your eggs in the container.
