Eggs are a staple food as they are loved by millions of people all over the world. And although cooking eggs may seem simple, there are some skills involved especially when you want to eat easy poached eggs. The microwave egg poachers make cooking eggs simple and a lot easier. With these appliances, you can have perfectly cooked eggs without heating the pan. And to use microwavable egg poachers, you just need to fill the poacher with water, put in the egg, and cover the poacher before inserting it in your microwave. In about two to five minutes, you will have a perfectly poached egg.  In this article therefore, we are going to look at why microwavable egg poachers are worth buying.

Prevents bursting

Although scrambled eggs are easy to cook with a microwave, poached eggs have proved a challenge to most people. This is because, cooking poached eggs in the microwave has mostly ended in an explosive affair. This usually happens not only because of the level of water, but also the inconsistencies between the egg white and the yolk. Luckily, microwavable egg poachers have come to solve this problem as they are fitted with a cover that prevents the egg from bursting out of the poaching container.  

Effectiveness

Today, there are some good egg poachers in the market that are very effective in boiling eggs using a microwave. With these appliances, you can either have a hard or soft boiled egg within 3 to five minutes – all this without boiling a pot of water. You just need to put your egg in a boiler, fill it with water before covering and putting it in the microwave. And after about three to five minutes, your egg will be ready. This process is not only effective, but also saves a lot of time and energy.  

Saves time and energy

Another reason why you should get a microwavable egg poacher is because it saves a lot of time and energy. It only takes about two minutes to poach an egg in a microwave. This saves you a lot of time as it takes longer to boil an egg in a pan. The good thing is that, there are egg poachers that come with a transparent lid and you can watch the eggs as they cook. On the other hand, there are some egg poachers that can be turned over in order to cook some bacon.

Cheaper than using an egg poaching pan

You should also consider buying a microwavable egg poacher because it is cheaper than either getting an egg poaching pan or a saucepan for boiling the eggs.  That way, you get to save money in the long term.

People Suffering From Diabetes Can Eat Eggs, says Study

"A healthy diet as prescribed in this study emphasised replacing saturated fats -- such as butter -- with monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats -- such as avocado and olive oil," Fuller added.

People suffering from diabetes may finally eat eggs daily without a pinch of guilt. A new study suggests that eating up to 12 eggs a week does not increase cardiovascular risk factors in people with pre-diabetes or Type-2 diabetes.

People with Type-2 diabetes tend to have higher levels of the ‘bad’ low density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol which is a risk factor for heart diseases. As eggs themselves are high in dietary cholesterol, diabetics are generally advised to avoid consuming eggs.

But the findings, published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, showed that eggs have little effect on the levels of cholesterol in the blood of people eating them.

“Despite differing advice around safe levels of egg consumption for people with pre-diabetes and Type-2 diabetes, our research indicates that people do not need to hold back from eating eggs if this is part of a healthy diet,” said study co-author Nicholas Fuller from the University of Sydney.

“A healthy diet as prescribed in this study emphasised replacing saturated fats — such as butter — with monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats — such as avocado and olive oil,” Fuller added.

In the initial trial of the study, 128 participants aimed to maintain their weight while embarking on a high-egg (12 eggs per week) or low-egg (less than two eggs per week) diet, with no difference in cardiovascular risk markers identified at the end of three months.

The same participants then embarked on a weight loss diet for an additional three months, while continuing their high or low egg consumption.

For a further six months — up to 12 months in total — participants were followed up by researchers and continued their high or low egg intake.

The extended study tracked a broad range of cardiovascular risk factors including cholesterol, blood sugar and blood pressure, with no significant difference in results between the high egg and low egg groups.

At all stages, both groups showed no adverse changes in cardiovascular risk markers and achieved equivalent weight loss — regardless of their level of egg consumption, the researcher explained.

The findings are important due to the potential health benefits of eggs for people with pre-diabetes and Type-2 diabetes as well as the general population, the research said.

“Eggs are a source of protein and micronutrients that could support a range of health and dietary factors including helping to regulate the intake of fat and carbohydrate, eye and heart health, healthy blood vessels and healthy pregnancies,” Fuller noted. (IANS)
