Passionate Farmer Phil Ashton loves poached eggs that drizzle the good stuff for breakfast.
But because time in the kitchen is time he’d rather spend caring for his girls, he had an idea...
It all began when Phil calculated over the course of his lifetime he’d spend 1825 hours – 76 days – in the kitchen perfecting tasty poached eggs.
That was a staggering amount of time he’d rather spend on his farm.
Keen to find a way to win back precious time, he had an idea. A device that would not only make the perfect poached eggs every time, but would take the work out of breakfast.
This is the story of one ’eggcentric’ man and his cracking invention…
"The machine really does make the perfect poached egg every time and if you are very particular like I am, it takes away the daily frustration of slightly under or overdone eggs," he told the MEN.
"The eggs are timed to precision for 162 seconds."
"It’s been a labour of love that kept me away from my girls longer than I would have liked this summer.
"But I’m already reaping the benefit and I wanted it ready in time for the shorter winter days."
"Growing up on a farm I always had a knack for making things and my wife’s been calling me Wallace for years.
"As a kid I was always repairing machinery and working on tractor motors so really the cracking invention is just one of many contraptions and I’m sure it won’t be the last invention I have up my sleeve."
