And here is the main reason: For a lazy and rushed day, or when you’re a school student with a tiny kitchen with not much equipment. 

Tips: to become a great egg cooker.

Avoid Overcooking:

Microwaves can sometimes turn your lovely eggs into rubbery disasters. To avoid this, use lower power settings or short intervals to check for doneness. 

If you expect the egg to be cooked in 2 minutes, set up a timer for 1, then check, then set another 30 seconds, then check and repeat again. Easier to deal with it this way than have a super dehydrated over cooked egg. 

Preventing Explosions

We want breakfast, not a science experiment gone wrong. To avoid explosions, poke the yolk or use a cover. Always use microwave-safe containers to prevent any unfortunate incidents. Don’t put the whole egg into the microwave, remember, do not do that, need to break it first, then at least poke the yolk. 

Using the Right Equipment:

Invest in some good microwave-safe bowls, mugs, and covers. Avoid metal utensils and containers at all costs!

Stirring and Resting:

Stir halfway through cooking to ensure even cooking. Let the egg rest after microwaving to finish cooking perfectly.
