Kitchen goods "Karan Colon " that can cut boiled eggs like flowers. When I was worried about how it was used, I found it at Daiso, a 100-yen shop, so I decided to give it a try.
The "Flower Egg Colon" released in 2016 is a stick-shaped cutter that can decorate the white of boiled eggs. The length is about 16 cm, and a total of two "wave type" and "zigzak type" are included in the set.
Let's use it now. First, place the boiled egg on the edge of the cutter and roll it toward the other side. If the boiled egg has a cut, just remove the white meat from the top. The cutter also has irregularities for making "eyes" and "mouths", and you can also make a face.
When I actually used it, I found that while the procedure was simple, there were some points to be aware of in order to finish it beautifully. First of all, as mentioned in the note, boiled eggs should be "hard boiled". If it is a soft-boiled egg, the white meat will be soft and soft, so the cutter will not fit well.
Also, if the yolk is leaning to one side, the thickness of the white will be uneven and it will be difficult to cut. Ideally, you should take measures such as occasionally rolling the egg with chopsticks while boiling so that the yolk is as central as possible.
And when cutting, the point is to make a deep cut so that you may think that it will bite into the yolk. If the depth is not enough even if you make a round around the cut, you will not be able to remove the white meat at all and you will feel sad.
It's a good item that you need to get the hang of, but it's fun to get closer to the ideal finish. If you can make it beautiful, you will surely want to show it to someone, so why not use it not only for lunch boxes, but also for cherry blossom viewing and home parties?
