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.
