It looks like a water bottle but is meant for cooking eggs.

A few thousand units of the quirky automated egg-cooker have been sold here, with customers buying it online and at stores such as Giant hypermarkets and Challenger.

The eggs are cooked in the cylindrical, non-stick cooking chamber, which is surrounded by a heating element.

Simply plug the gadget into an electrical point, pop an egg into the cooking chamber and the column of egg rises when it is ready.
