A Better Way to Cook Eggs
Water takes time to boil, making the busy dieter less likely to eat eggs. A solution for this problem: the Nordic Ware Microwave Egg Cooker. This product promises to give you “up to 4 perfect hard or soft boiled eggs in your microwave oven”. The device makes cooking eggs simple and easy. There is little to no cleanup and the cooker is dishwasher safe. The microwave egg cooker steams the eggs, rather than boiling them.
How it Works
The Nordic Ware Microwave Egg Cooker is an egg-shaped case containing a metal tray for holding up to four eggs. The top of the case is also lined with metal. To use the device, you simply pour water up to the fill line located underneath the tray and replace the cap. You then heat the cooker in the microwave, which brings the water to boil. The steam created heats the tray, cooking the eggs by conduction.
