In the microwave of course. Something I had never thought of doing before really. I've always boiled a pan of water and popped my eggs in there to boil but this microwave egg boiler is really good and quick.
We all want a quick answer to stuff these days don't we? We all need to be going about the world faster than our brains can even think about it. I wasn't even looking for an egg boiler but I just laid eyes on it while walking around our local Dunelm store.
After a flat white and a couple of gluten free shortbread biscuits that had blueberries in, yes fruit....makes them healthy, oh go on play along. So yes after a brew I saw this cheeky little egg device and thought, I'm having a go with that. For the bargain price of £1.99 you can have a boiled egg on your plate in just a few minutes.
All you have to do is fill the bottom of the egg boiler up with water to the line shown, pop the metal case in and prick the egg on the big end with a pointy tool supplied in the pack. You have to push this through so that it punctures the yolk, then you pop the egg with the holey end up into the boiler and secure the top on. The boiler then goes into the microwave for 3 mins if you want a runny egg and 5 minutes for hard boiled (based on a 1000w oven).
Brilliant eh? You just have to remember to fetch the boiler out with oven gloves as it does get warm but it just takes the faff out of boiling a pan of water. I'm likely to use this quite a bit now as it makes the process so much quicker.
I'm so easily pleased for £1.99 but I did have a brew and fruity biscuit too (yes fruit). Someone is going to tell me that these egg boilers have been around for ages, why haven't I had one before? Oh well better late than never.
Let me know if you have one. Do you like it? Still use it? Or is it in the back of the cupboard, never to be used again? I'm not sure why the egg face looks a bit miserable because it should have a happy face, smile egg man, you are great!!
Thank you for reading today, please join me again tomorrow for my Verse for Thursday but for now take care and happy egg boiling!!
