Hit or Miss: Hawkins' Boilette
Hey, we all boil eggs!  Who could blame Hawkins for wanting to take such a common task in the kitchen, and make it easier.  Whilst we have special appliances for boiling water, toasting bread,  the humble boiled egg has been ignored for far too long.    Taken from a product launch of June 1950. Hit or Miss, you tell me?


Hawkins Boilette

The Hawkins Boilette, comprising a Pyrex tumbler and a 460W element with a chrome cover, will boil small quantities of liquid in under two minutes and is therefore ideal for beverages, egg boiling, etc.  It is entirely finished in chrome and its price, complete with flex and tumbler, is 19s 6d.
