Bet You Can’t Find Your Way Out of This Plastic Box

Orange plastic box

What's that pencil sharpener doing in my kitchen?

What Is It?

Only the best use of hard plastic—the egg cuber

How Does It Work?

You boil an egg, place it in the cuber and slowly twist the top. Out pops a cubed egg. Brilliant really. Simple and effective.

Do I Really Need It?

Hmmm… that’s a tough one actually. It’s silly and stupid, but I’m going to vote for yes on the egg cuber. You need one for the following reasons:

  • It’s funny. There’s a chicken swearing on the box because she just laid a square egg. Chickens are such foul-mouthed creatures (pun intended, I’m lame).
  • Cubed eggs are easier to store. So if you eat a lot of hard-boiled eggs (like hundreds), it’s a more efficient use of space to make them cubical.
  • They’re easier to chop into uniform bits. Your egg salad will look prettier with the homogenous dice that a cubed egg provides.
  • You can pick one up for less than $5. If you don’t use it, you’re not out a ton of cash.

There are some downsides to the egg cuber—namely, it only cubes one egg at a time. Of course, the novelty will probably wear off with time. But, come on! Cube an egg. You know you want to!

Where Can I Buy My Very Own?

My circa 1970s model was a gift from a friend (thanks!). But apparently, Rachel Ray featured it on her show a while back, so I’m sure you can pick up a new version just about anywhere in the online shopping zone known as the internet.
