FYI: The finished product, 'square' slices of egg. <br />
<br />
A clever gadget has been invented to solve the age-old problem of fitting slices of round egg in a square sandwich.<br />
<br />
For generations people have been chopping up circular pieces of egg and layering them on bread but being forced to leave gaps at the corners.<br />
<br />
A handy device has now been created which turns the oval snack into a cube, making it easier to hold still and cut up.<br />
<br />
The contraption, known as the Egg-Q-Ber, is a jar in which hard-boiled eggs are placed and squashed into the new shape.<br />
<br />
A user simply has to cook their egg, peel off the shell, place it in the container with a dash of oil, and screw on the lid.<br />
<br />
After just one minute, the egg will have moulded to a cube shape and can be chopped up ready for sandwiches and salads.<br />
<br />
People who have purchased the product have posted reviews praising it online, including one user who said it was a 'Brilliant innovative gadget.'<br />
<br />
The 3.5 by 2.5 inch gadget can be purchased at Firebox.com<br />

Ben Redhead, head of buying for the website, said: "Boiled eggs have been the bane of picnics and pack-lunches the world over due to their completely illogical shape.
