Good morning. I'm Renee Montagne with news of a golden egg that could appear in your own kitchen. It's a gadget soon to be on sale that scrambles an egg inside its shell. The design is based on an antique toy, a kind of spinning top where an egg in a cradle is spun by pulling apart two cords. Voila. No need for a whisk or a bowl and you can even cook the egg scrambled in its shell for a perfect edible golden egg. It's MORNING EDITION.
