About

There are hundreds of recipes that require different types of eggs or even just parts of eggs. We love yolks and whites, sliced eggs and scrambled, smashed and roasted. And we found that we needed too many tools for such a simple ingredient as an egg.

That's why we created Shegg - an ultimate kit for cooking all varieties of eggs. And you know what? It looks like an egg!  

What can Shegg do?

Shegg consists of four parts: 

  • Upper part for shaking eggs inside Shegg
  • Middle part for slicing eggs and separating yolks
  • Bottom bowl for eggs and whites
  • Silicon rim for roasting perfect circle eggs

1. Separation of yolk from white

Shegg will help you to easily separate the yolk from the white. The yolk will stay in the separator and the white will fall into the bowl below.

2. Omelet or scrambled eggs

Shegg is perfect for cooking any type of omelet. All you need to do is put some eggs inside Shegg and shake it hard. 

You can then add any tomatoes, onion, etc., and fry the omelet in a pan or just place it in the Shegg bowl and into the microwave. 

With Shegg, your omelet will be a perfect start to the day!

3. Shegg and circle roasted egg.

Between the upper and lower bowls of Shegg there is a silicon ring. And this is not just a decorative thing; it can help you can make perfectly round sunny side up eggs!

4. Peel the boiled egg from the shell

In addition to this Shegg can also be used to peel boiled eggs. Simply pour some cold water into Shegg, add a boiled egg, and then shake it a couple of times. The egg will cool down and will lose the shell easily.

5. Slicing eggs

The separator will also help you to slice boiled eggs for your sandwich or salad.

What about a material?

You can wash Shegg into cold or warm water or just put it into the washing machine. All components of Shegg are produced from polypropylene PP 1124H and silicon. It is hypoallergic and food contact acceptable. Shegg will not take much place in your kitchen but will replace other kitchen gadgets. You will need only one Shegg to cook all types of eggs!  

From prototyping to Kickstarter edition

During the design process we've made lots of tests and experiments with different materials and technologies. 

We've tried 3d printing, plastic molding, CNC and these researches helped us to make a perfect product!

Right now our final prototype is made of a test PP plastic. To make a final product we need your help. We need to order expensive steel molds to produce the first run of Sheggs in a best quality. It will be produced of an eco friendly food grade FDA plastic and we hope that Shegg will become a good companion on your kitchen!

 

Size and design

Shegg is designed as a roly-poly to never fall down. It weighs only 10,5 Oz (300 grams). It is 5,9 inches high (150 mm) and 4,7 inches in width (120 mm). And have we mentioned these different colors that we can add a stretch goal?

 Team

Hi! My name is Yulia and I am a product designer. The dream I’m keen on is realization of my student project. I’m obsessed with cooking and for this reason I strived to create a product which meets the basic requirements for cooking: simplicity and pleasure!

 

Risks and challenges

Our team is working with real professionals that are on a market for long years. We've already finalized all mold forms with ON Group - a French engineering company created in 2006, who specialized in MOULD MAKING and PLASTIC INJECTION. We have all things ready to start the mass production.
Our delivery partner is ChinaDivision - a leading service provider of China drop shipping, warehouse fulfillment, supply chain management and global shipping from China.
