The perfect egg early in the morning
It's Sunday morning and the breakfast table is laid. Egg cups are so small that they can almost be overlooked. Freshly prepared omelettes look delicious served on a flat plate. However, if you prefer to enjoy a boiled egg cooked to perfection for breakfast or brunch, you'll soon notice that egg cups are indispensable. For most people, along with fresh bread rolls and a selection of fine jams and cheese in a basket, freshly cooked eggs are an absolute must. Of course, at Villeroy & Boch, you'll find the egg cups with the right design which match your tableware and add that finishing touch to your breakfast table.
It's not just the appearance that counts
With egg cups too, the shape can differ widely. With the classic shape, the egg cup stands on a base. Bowl-shaped egg cups in which you can put the salt or egg shell are another option. The design that will best suit your kitchen depends on your personal style. Some of Villeroy & Boch's tableware sets include an egg spoon made of high-quality porcelain for every egg cup, with the same coloured decoration. Porcelain for egg spoons is an elegant alternative to the simple plastic spoon. Spoons made of metal should be avoided as they spoil the flavour.
Quality in every detail
The types of porcelain developed in our own production processes are also used to create egg cups. The innovative manufacturing processes enable the production of the distinctive shapes for which Villeroy & Boch are reputed throughout the world. A particularly fine type of porcelain is premium bone porcelain which appears to be almost transparent due to the addition of calcinated bone ash, yet, thanks to the lead-free glaze, is extremely hard and impact-resistant. The premium porcelain never fails to impress with its fresh gleam. The contrast with intensive colour decorations is additionally accentuated against the gleaming white. The premium bone porcelain egg cups have a warmer shade which can be easily combined with your own crockery.
Through the perfect craftsmanship of each individual egg cup, you can always spoon out the egg without a care in the world: both the classic and the modern designs of the Villeroy & Boch series hold the egg firmly and always remain stable on your table, whether you choose a small or large egg. The flawless glaze which envelops the cup renders it shockproof and chip-resistant which means that it is suitable for the dishwasher. Egg yolk, bits of egg shell and other stains don't adhere to the smooth surface. So washing is always quick and easy, leaving you to enjoy the day after a hearty breakfast.
