Actually my better half uses a ceramic egg cooker from Pampered Chef to make scrambled eggs at work.

Adds onions, mushrooms etc to it. She says it works incredibly well. Eggs are perfect every time.


Keep your head down and admire the shot.

Lots of lessons to learn. Microwave ovens vibrate molecules, especially water. That heats them up. The heated water goes from a liquid to a gas as it's brought to its boiling temperature. The gas takes up more volume than liquid. The outer surface of the egg can't handle the increased pressure. Boom.

Yep. And now you learned a new skill. Cleaning the microwave.

Next, try to crack an egg into a small bowl and microwave it.

About 15 seconds you will have a similar reaction, so those new
skills will come in handy.

Best to pierce the yoke beforehand if a microwave is your only option.
Even then, if your timer is one minute, there will be cleanup.

If you want a soft boiled egg or poached egg, use water.

I recommend Joy of Cooking.

Ya know if you boil eggs in a pot and forget and the water boils out they also explode. These were store bought hard boiled eggs. I figured to just warm them up a bit.

Taters can also explode in a deep fryer under the right conditions. Not when you first put them in but after they have been in there a few minutes. Had that happen too. That was really dangerous. Fortunately I was not near it when it happened.

Crack the egg on a plastic wrap on top of a bowl of water.
