Best Electric Kettles for Boiling Eggs – perfectly all the time!
We all know time is a valuable resource in the morning that is very much in short supply. So any thing that we can do to save us some time (even just a few minutes here and there), will make a huge difference to the rest of our day.
In this article we are going to focus on saving you time when it comes to making eggs for breakfast. And just because we are a fan of boiled eggs, we are going to providing you with our best time saving tip for boiling eggs.
Why use Electric Kettles for Boiling Eggs?
The usual process for boiling eggs is to place a pot of cold water on the stove and bring the water to a rolling boil before placing your eggs into the hot water for boiling.
This can take anywhere between 9 – 10 minutes to bring the water up to a temperature hot enough to produce rolling bubbles.
Our tip of the day to save you time is to pre-boil the water in an electric kettle. An electric kettle is fast, efficient and a mess free way to boil your water and kick start the egg boiling process.
Depending on the quality of your kettle, it can take as little as 4 -5 minutes to reach boiling temperature. This saves you approximately 5 minutes in the morning and brings you 5 minutes closer to enjoying your warm breakfast.
