Yudetama-Gokko Animal Egg Moulds

Eggs that look like rabbits, fish and even cars!  They certainly got the attention of my little Ochibi, and he gobbled up the fish before I could take photos.  I snuck in a photo of the car-egg, before he gobbled that one up, too.

Boiled eggs make easy and healthy bento fillers, but why have egg-shaped eggs, when you could have a rabbit or car instead?!

The Yudetama-gokko was surprisingly quick and easy to use.  I peeled my boiled eggs while they were still hot, put them in the mould, and gently, gently closed the lid.  Within five minutes they had taken on the shape of the mould and I now had a fish and a car. 

Make sure you use 60g eggs (Australia: XL, Japan: L,  please let me know what they call them in your country!)

  3. Hi!
    I've just recently purchased the car and fish set and I was wondering if it is necessary for the egg to remain hot when inserted into the mould??

    1. Hi Diana☆ Yes, the egg must still be hot, or at least warm, when inserted into the mould. The hotter the egg, the better the results. Once the mold is closed, you can cool it down just by putting in the fridge for 5 min, or a bowl or cold water. Once the egg has cooled, it is no longer flexible and the shape is set.

    Wenn das Pferd die Ohren anlegt, ist der Druck zu hoch.Um die passende Intensität zu finden, sollten Sie das Pferd beobachten. Hebt es Kopf und Hals, schlägt es mit dem Schweif oder weicht es dem Druck aus, haben Sie zu stark massiert. Die Muskulatur verhärtet sich. Das Pferd legt die Ohren an, manche schnappen sogar oder zucken vor Schmerz. In diesem Fall sollten Sie einen Profi hinzuziehen. Animals

  9. Dreaming of mouth-watering, competition-worthy, low-and-slow meats? Offset smokers, also known as barrel smokers or horizontal offset smokers are often thought of as the traditional smoker for their simple, yet effective design. Powered by charcoal and/or wood, they’re ideal for anyone who wants to master the conventional way of smoking, and, cook a large quantity of deliciously smoked meat in the process. But, when it comes to buying an offset smoker, any old thing won’t do! The market’s full of cheap options that leak smoke, use a tonne of fuel and quite frankly, just don’t work well. Instead of chancing it drum, you’re obviously doing your research!
