The spark of Ember: It all started with cold eggs
How could eggs, fresh off the stove, become so cold, so quickly? This simple question led entrepreneur, Clay Alexander, down an exciting and uncharted path to ultimately create one of the world’s most revolutionary consumer product brands.
In 2009, Alexander sat down for breakfast with his wife, and within minutes, as always, his eggs were cold. As a successful, serial inventor, Alexander stared at his cold eggs, and pondered how he could solve this problem. There just had to be a better way. Why couldn't the plate keep his food warm, and mugs keep his coffee hot? This sparked Alexander’s interest in temperature control. He wanted to create a new category of dishware that would maintain a perfect temperature versus just keeping food and drinks hot.
