An innovative contribution to ovum boiling technology.
Extensive research has revealed that one of the major problems in egg timing is the fact that most people are not near the saucepan when the time elapses; a situation which often results in the egg remaining in the boiling liquid for up to thirty seconds longer than the desired time. For this reason, the developers have provided an adjustable pre-warning signal that can be set to warn users that they should find a spoon and approach the cooking area.
Enter the required time and warning (the default settings are three minutes for the cooking time and ten seconds for the warning).
Tap the egg to start the counter. The egg will vibrate, simulating the motion in the saucepan.
At the warning time, a loud whistle will indicate that the user should find a spoon and prepare for action.
When the time to remove the eggs has finally been reached, the rooster on the egg cup will animate and crow.
Whilst the timer is running, examples of the significance of the egg in History, Philosophy and Art can be accessed by pressing the Info button. The warning signal and cock crow will remain audible, even if you are engrossed in an account of the Philosopher’s Egg.
Warning and timer settings are stored everytime they are changed. Consequently, once you have arrived at the ideal combination, you will never have to enter the information again.
