Eggs are one of the most popular foods around the globe. They’re versatile, cheap, abundant, and delicious. But have you ever enjoyed a golden egg? These culinary treats make for a fancy party trick and a tasty addition to your egg repertoire, but they're also hard to find in restaurants and notoriously difficult to prepare.
Just what is this culinary delicacy? Basically, you blend the yolk and the white inside the shell, then cook the egg in whatever way you see fit. You can fry, poach, soft-boil, or hard-boil the egg—often to impressive results.
Unfortunately, that first stage in the process is tricky. Imagine aggressively spinning an egg about a hundred times... without breaking its shell. Traditional methods involve fastening a t-shirt and rubber bands to an egg, which generally sounds like a mess in the making.
But a new Kickstarter project proves the process doesn’t have to be difficult—or messy.
The Golden Goose, as it’s called, is a low-tech yet cleverly designed gadget with two handles, a cord, and a container. An egg is placed securely within the container, which is then sent into a rapid spin by pulling the handles. The speed of the spin causes centrifugal forces and mixes the contents of the egg without cracking the shell.
The simplicity of the device is what makes it so appealing. If you owned one, why wouldn’t you make a whole lot of golden eggs?
The project has already been funded, and with fewer than three days left in the campaign, the Golden Goose has more than quadrupled its original funding goal of $34,500. In other words, this nifty little gadget could soon find its way into your kitchen.
If your interest has been piqued, you can pledge a minimum of $24 to secure a pre-order. The folks behind the Golden Goose expect orders to ship this fall.
