Eggciting – Eggchef for a one minute egg

Research and Development for a One Minute Egg


The Eggchef – One Minute Egg – is developed for the hotel and catering services industry. It can boil an egg within one minute.

One Minute Egg

The Eggchef offers an improved guest experience and customer satisfaction. It consumes less energy as well.

Boiling an egg has never been such a peace of cake, thanks to the patented heating technology. The guest places a fresh egg in the Eggchef, chooses how he wants his egg to be boiled and his egg of choice is ready after just one minute.


Well known players in the market developed this system. WeLLDesign created the design and the development. The Delft University of Technology/The Hague University were responsible for the development within the hotel and catering services industry.

How to cook an egg within one minute
WeLLDesign deed onderzoek en ontwikkeling naar een systeem waarmee een ei binnen een minuut kon worden gekookt.

The Eggschef is partner of GREEN VILLAGE (TU Delft). Accor Hotel was closely involved in the research from the beginning. Testing days were organised in close collaboration with Accor Hotel.
