Perfectly Soft Boiled Egg

20 November 2020

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!
