No Mess No Fuss: Egg-Tastic 05Feb16
Do you dread making breakfast in the mornings? It may only takes minutes to cook but leaves you with a big mess to clean up. Breakfast can be very time
consuming and no one has the time for all that mess & fuss.
I’ll admit the thought of microwaved eggs grossed me out and there is no possible way they could ever turn out good. However, my motto is to always try
something at least once. Plus the Egg-Tastic™ would eliminate me having to get a bowl out to
stir the eggs in, buttering up a pan, adding the eggs to the pan, hovering over them, and constantly turning them so they don’t get burnt. Not to mention I
wouldn’t have to clean a mixing bowl, a pan, a spatula, and a plate! You just can’t beat fast and efficient, so I gave it a whirl.
The Egg-Tastic™ is a ceramic microwave egg cooker that comes with instructions and a cooking
guide. The commercials promise that you can make flavorful fluffy scrambled eggs, poached eggs, and more. You just simply follow the 4 easy steps of crack
the eggs (up to 4), add ingredients to the eggs if you wish, put the lid on top and place in the microwave, and then simply enjoy. There is a max fill line
that you have to be conscious of which is about half way up the ceramic pot.
Since I’m not a fan of poached eggs I made some good ol’ fashioned scrambled eggs with shredded cheese, salt & pepper. I usually add milk to my
scrambled eggs to make them extra fluffy but I forgot to add it this time. I added 2 eggs, so according to the cooking guide I put it in the microwave for
1 minute and 20 seconds. When I went to put my fork in it I noticed it wasn’t cooked all the way, so I added an additional minute and they came out great!
Just make sure to use an oven mitt when taking it out because it does get extremely hot.
Now it was time for clean up. Since I ate my eggs right out of the pot I only had my fork and the Egg-Tastic™ to clean, but it wasn’t that easy. I used a soft sponge and still had a lining
of eggs around the pot. So I had to use a coarse brush to clean it and with a little elbow grease it came clean but wasn’t as easy as I thought it was
going to be.
All in all it was great. It cut down on time, dishes, and mess. It also made some pretty good fluffy eggs. Not only is it great for someone who’s always on
the go but perfect for a college student too.
