It’s mealtimes and snacking made easy. It’s freedom for gooey-egg lovers. It’s everything you need to enjoy.

So, come on — let’s get cracking!

How-to Yowk

It really couldn’t be any easier. Just remove everything from the packaging and cover your egg with boiling water for 5 minutes.

Now pop your egg into the egg cup and use the included spooth (it’s a spoon with a tooth) to take the top off the shell.

And that’s it! Season to taste and dip your breadsticks with wild abandon.

Boil some water

Grab your kettle, fill it with tap water and then click the switch. When it's boiled we're good to go.

Remove the lid and fill to the top with boiling water

Remove the bread sticks, Spooth and seasoning, then carefully pour the boiling water over your egg until it is fully covered.

Wait five minutes

This is probably the hardest part! Your Yowk will be cooked to perfection in five minutes. Problem is, when you're hungry and you know there's a delicious egg on the way, that can seem like ages. See our Five Minute Fillers for ways to pass the time.

Drain the water, flip the lid and there’s your egg cup!

After five minutes, carefully dispose of the hot water. Now you're free to flip the lid over. As if by magic, your egg cup appears.

Use your Spooth

Man has invented some truly useful things - the Spooth included. Use the little 'tooth' on it to remove the top of the egg. Nearly there now...

Season and enjoy

Add salt and pepper to season, if that's how you like it. Your Yowk is now ready. And your focaccia breadsticks are just waiting to be dipped.

Five minute fillers

Everyone knows that five minutes isn’t long. Unless you’re waiting to dig in to your deliciously gooey soft-boiled egg… then it can’t come soon enough!

That’s why we’ve provided you with all kinds of fun ways you can fill five minutes with. That’s all it takes to cook your egg to perfection.

What Yowky goodness do our eggs give you?

Eggs are not just high in protein. They also contain Vitamin D, Vitamin A, Vitamin B2, iodine, phosphorus, calcium, thiamine and riboflavin. Now we’re cooking!

One of our eggs provides:

32% RDA

Vitamin D

Vitamin D helps regulate the amount of calcium and phosphate in the body. These nutrients are needed to keep bones and teeth healthy.

Vitamin D is important to the body in many other ways as well. Muscles need it to move, nerves need it to carry messages between the brain and the body, and the immune system needs vitamin D to fight off invading bacteria and viruses.

Vitamin B2

Vitamin B2, otherwise known as riboflavin, has many functions. These include keeping skin, eyes and the nervous system healthy, and helping the body release energy from the food we eat.

As well as playing a key role in energy production, Vitamin B2 also offers antioxidant protection and promotes iron metabolism.

Vitamin B2 cannot be stored in the body, so you need it in your diet every day.

Vitamin B12

Vitamin B12 is a nutrient that helps keep the body's nerve and blood cells healthy.

It is involved in releasing energy from the food we eat, processing folic acid and helps make DNA, the genetic material in all cells.

A regular intake of Vitamin B12 will help prevent anaemia which makes people tired and weak.


Biotin is a vitamin that plays an important role in helping the body metabolize carbohydrates, fats and amino acids, the building blocks of protein. It is also used to process glucose.

Biotin is often recommended for strengthening hair and nails. It is sometimes known as vitamin H; the 'H' coming from the German words for 'hair' and 'skin', 'Haar' and 'Haut'.

Like all B vitamins, Biotin is a water-soluble vitamin, meaning the body does not store it.


Phosphorus, alongside calcium, is the most abundant mineral in the body.

These two important nutrients work closely together to build strong bones and teeth and to help release energy from food.

About 85% of phosphorus in the body can be found in bones and teeth, but it is also present in cells and tissues throughout the body.


Iodine is a mineral which the body needs to make thyroid hormones. These hormones control the body's metabolism and many other important functions.

The body also needs thyroid hormones for proper bone and brain development during pregnancy and infancy.

Getting enough iodine is important for everyone, especially infants and women who are pregnant.
