Cupmen 2 cup noodle men

These interesting looking gadgets shaped like little men from h-concept are designed to provide a visual indication when cup noodles are cooked. As these cup noodle men come into contact with heat from the lid, they will lose their color gradually and when they turn completely white your cup noodles are done.
