#2 Boiled eggs

How to make the perfect soft or hard-boiled egg? Here are some tips to help you succeed every time, no matter which version you use!

  • Preparation of eggs: Use fresh, room temperature eggs! If you take them straight from the fridge, let them stand for a while or soak them in warm water for a few minutes. This prevents the shell from cracking during cooking!
  • Water temperature: Put enough water in a shallow pot to just cover the eggs! For soft eggs, boil them quickly; and for hard-boiled eggs, start with cold water and gradually heat it up! This ensures that the egg whites and yolks cook evenly.
  • Boiling time: In the case of soft eggs, you only need to boil the eggs for 3-4 minutes from the time the water boils! For hard-boiled eggs, wait until the water starts to boil, then reduce the heat and cook for 9-12 minutes!
  • Using cold water: Once the eggs have reached the desired level of doneness, immediately remove them from the hot water and place them in ice cold water. This will not only stop the cooking process, but will also make peeling the eggs easier!
  • Peeling: It is best to start peeling the eggs immediately after putting them in the cold water! Use an egg topper!

By following these steps, you can be sure that your boiled eggs will always turn out perfectly.

#4 Baking with eggs

Eggs are not only a wonderful food in themselves, but they also play an indispensable role in baking. Be it cakes, pasta or other delicacies.

Eggs are one of the mainstays of the baking industry. It is no coincidence that we have such professional tools in our range as the egg separator. Its proteins and fats are crucial in creating the texture and structure of cakes and pastries. But how exactly does this work?

The egg whites set when heated and help the cakes keep their shape. This is especially important for recipes where the balance of density and lightness is key, such as sponge cake and muffins.

Eggs also help control the moisture content of the dough. The lecithin content of the egg yolk helps bind together ingredients that do not mix with water, such as fats and oils, resulting in a more even dough. This is vital for creamy cakes and delicate pastries.
