Mazda Distributes Its Newest Creation: The EX-7 Egg Boiler
Now, we can add one more item to that growing (and good-looking) list: an egg-boiler. Distributed to only a few parties in a black box, the EX-7 is engraved with the shape of the famous triangular rotor component of Mazda’s rotary engines (including a tiny triangular rotor on the top), and is crafted entirely out of aluminum alloy.
However, it isn’t just there to look pretty—the EX-7 is made to efficiently boil eggs, first by using less materials than other eggs boilers, and then by only using a bare 2 centimeters of water to boil the eggs, so long as they are placed vertically next to one another. And don’t be fooled by the decorative-looking center hole; the name EX-7 came from the device’s ability to boil seven eggs at one time.
It even includes a little pin in the very top to poke a hole in the shell to help you peel the egg.
The EX-7 was designed by Design Division Head Ikuo Maeda and his team, with the blueprint printed on the inside of the lid of the package.
