Do you struggle to achieve a soft yolk when boiling an egg?

The Grocer has been given an exclusive preview of a new product – the Dippy Egg , which its maker, Pork Farms, claims produces a perfectly cooked soft-boiled egg every time.

Comprising a whole, pasteurised pre-cooked egg in its shell, it comes in a plastic pot – all the consumer need do is reheat the egg in the pot using boiling water.

We’ve been given a prototype Dippy Egg – to see how it works and what we think of it, watch the video above.
