Takara Tomy Egg Pudding Maker

We were super excited when we saw this egg pudding maker online, and when we saw this guy’s video about it we thought it was too good to be true. Turns out it was. This doesn’t make egg pudding! It just makes hard boiled scrambled eggs!

We spent so much time on this thing. Ahhh. Usually, we film our WTF videos for like, 20-30 minutes. This thing took hours out of our day, HOURS. Trying egg after egg after egg. The sun set, our lighting changed (and got really bad at the end, sorry) and we couldn’t get this to make it right. 30 minutes, 20 minutes, 15 minutes, 10 minutes, 5 minutes: all tasted gross. How the hell did the guy in that video above make his right? He puts on the timer for 30 minutes and he gets these deliciously creamy egg puddings. What bullshit! I thought at first that the saran wrap would save the egg somehow, because 30 minutes seemed excessive, but it did nothing. I don’t even understand what it’s for. I think it’s to make you feel an ounce of hope. Well, good job, instructions: you made me feel hopeful, and then crushed it mercilessly in your cold, bloodless hands.

I think I got so excited about this because I freaking love Japanese pudding. Whoa. Why hasn’t it caught on in Korea? It’s so delicious! And it’s in convenience stores everywhere in Japan! I really want to try a Gigapudding. That’s a bucket list right there. It probably won’t be the most tasty thing after the third spoonful, but it’ll be fill with joy and mirth, so I’ll eat it all and then call in sick the next day. Though I don’t really call in sick in my line of work. I’ll just tweet about it online: “Ate too much Giga Pudding; no videos this week.”

Anyhow, if any of you know how we could make this and get some good egg pudding out of this, please let me know before I throw this out of my window in a sobbing hissy fit. There must be a step or two that I missed out on…

  1. There is a company selling the finished products in Japan. I received half a dozen of them some years ago when they were still novelties. They were not super delicious but tasted O.K. http://kitasakatamago.co.jp/

  2. One tip I can give you, because I have chickens, the fresher the egg, the harder it is to peel. I save my oldest eggs for hard boiling.

    Why anyone would want a pre-scrambled hard boiled egg is beyond me. The hard boiled yoke is the best part.

  3. I looked at the inspiration video myself, though no idea what he was saying. I gotta find time to learn Korean sometime but that’s a different story. it did look like he did exactly what you guys did in your video, and even the “pudding” he got looked almost exactly like Simon’s first attempt egg did. I don’t think he actually got any pudding either.

    but while I was looking at the gigapudding music vid you guys posted I did find two video’s of a different duo that did make an actual attempt to make gigapudding!

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JywENoahWMw that’s them making it
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jnJ7pa7wr0Q and that’s them unveiling it after it cooled.
    it might not be godzilla sized but it was big enough to fill up one of those big trash can containers,the video says 37kg(about 81.6 pounds) of pudding, so it’s certainly enough that if you gorged on it you’d be calling in sick for at least a week.

  6. Definitely more of a WTF than a wonderful treasure. Although if you got a plastic easter egg, and some egg, milk, and sugar, you could kind of use that to make custard. Mix it with the machine, then steam it for like 15 mins. Now I want to try it.

  7. After watching the inspiration video it still didn’t look like pudding or custard to me. It looked like half hardboiled half raw egg even in his video.

  8. This looks exactly like that trick where you put an egg in the leg of your pantyhose and spin it back and forth to make scrambled-in-shell hardboiled eggs, but done with a cute toy. Martina was so very right.

  9. I have heard of using plastic wrap for poached eggs or Scotch eggs, but never for hard boiled eggs. My only thought is the plastic wrap might help keep water out of the egg if it were to crack or eggsplode. But I don’t know, I’m a bit skeptical.
    Even though this device did not seem to make perfect egg pudding, I like the design. Maybe you could use it to make tiny amounts of homemade butter. You never know when you might need small egg-sized amounts of butter.

  10. Looks like you guys weren’t the only ones that struggled with this. Japanese Youtuber Decocookie also had trouble with it. She ended up boling the water first then turning off the heat to put the egg in the water .It looked better the second time and added a syrup like thing at the end. So maybe the water boling was the problem.

  11. Well in the instructions it says that you’re supposed to boil the water and then turn it off, add the eggs to the hot water, put the lid on and wait for 30 minutes.
    But to be honest I just see this as a way to make cool eggs that have the same colour and texture as purin. XD Oh and btw you can make the gigapudding by yourselves! You just need to find this kit somewhere… https://youtu.be/K51z8H9BWN0

    • Really hope Simon and Martina read this so they can try it again! Definitely sounds like the key is boiling the water and turning it Off before adding the eggs.

  12. Egg pudding in Japan can be very vague because they also call Chawanmushi (savory egg custard) pudding as well. One other youtube user [Decocookie] used the pudding maker also struggled with this one too, but she got it after pulling on the lever for a while. I guess if you’re into regular egg pudding (and want to put caramel or some other sweet thing on afterward), its ok, but the naming is really really deceptive.

    • I agree… I like chawanmushi and purin equally but this product makes me question whether it’s for really basic purin, or somewhat complex chawanmushi.

      Though, I think maybe it’s more of a chawanmushi machine…

  13. Hi! Just curious, when you put your egg in the water, is it boiling or cold water from the tap?
