• Freshly boiled egg
  • Chopsticks
  • Piece of cardboard
  • Two rubber bands

To start, you will need to have all the elements and an egg at hand. First of all, you have to cook your egg. Take it out of the fridge, some time in advance to warm it up. If you start boiling a cold egg, it will break and the inside of it will be uneven.

The egg, on average, shouldn’t be cooked longer than 10 mins. Once you take the egg out of the water, let it rest / cool. For best results, you have to do it while the egg is still warm.


  1. You will need a chopstick, two rubber bands, a hard piece of cardboard and a freshly boiled egg.
  2. While still hot, place the egg into the folded piece of cardboard
  3. Place the chopstick on the top of the egg
  4. Secure both ends with rubber bands, move them as close as possible to the egg without breaking it
  5. Let it cool for about 30 mins
