My father gave me this little musical egg cooker, you boil it with the egg in the pan and it plays 3 different tunes to let you know if the eggs are soft, medium or hard boiled. It’s a fun little thing, but to be honest quite annoying after a while, and also a little lazy. Especially if making the perfect medium to soft boiled egg (my favourite) is actually very easy!
- Bowl of ice water
Bring a pot of water to the boil.
Carefully add the eggs cold from the fridge and boil for exactly 6.5 minutes.
When done place in bowl filled with water and ice cubes for a minimum of 2 minutes.
To peel I like to crack the shell all over by tapping it on a plate or chopping board.
Peel and serve warm.
You can use eggs straight from the fridge for this.
