THE EGG TIMER

20121014-192430.jpg

Today I want to introduce to you a small but very useful tool that totally changed my life as a goofy cook into a smart one. It’s the egg timer.
How long does it take to boil eggs at the right point? And what if I want the red part to stay a little soft, perfect to eat with a spoon?
I don’t know, really. I’ve asked my mom, my friends and housemates, but everyone gave me a different answer. Someone said 8 minutes, someone said 5, someone simply didn’t care.
Now that I have the egg timer, I don’t care as well: my little plastic egg tells me. I just have to put it in the boiling water together with the eggs and check it sometimes. A red circle gets smaller as it cooks, progressively reaching three steps: soft, medium and hard. Easy.
