Default Today, I boiled my first egg - successfully

I love the occasional boiled egg and toast soldiers. I have just never been able to get them right before, either too runny or far too hard - total pot luck, so I usually concede defeat and beg a female to do one, but even then they may not be quite right.... None could even explain properly, the timing process they used.

I recently heard about a colour change egg timer. You pop it in the pan, add cold water and the egg(s), then just watch the gadget as the colour changes and the boundary works its way in along a marked scale.

You just stop the process, when it reaches your chosen mark.

It came out absolutely spot on

Jean, in a past life a pro-cook, was quite sceptical, but I had researched their use before hand.

Egg and timer in the pan, add cold water to well cover, then just place on the stove and watch for the colour change boundary hitting your mark. Then take the egg out and run under cold water to stop the egg cooking further.

Thanks to this gadget, I am now an eggspert

Problem solved, just shell out for an old fashioned egg-timer.

Got at least two, but so much depends upon the variables like how warm the water and the egg to begin with, then the heat input from the ring, pan size as well. This thing can take those into account to a large extent, but not the size of the egg.

Just pop the timer in and the egg, assuming they are both at the same temperature, and it should be fairly close.
