Tips on Cooking Eggs in Saladmaster

Eggs – Gourmet skillets & 1 quart sauce pan

When cooking ALL VARIETIES of eggs in Saladmaster, it is recommended to preheat your skillet on MED heat for 2-3 minutes before cooking. Test skillet temperature with a few droplets of water. When water dances on the skillet, spray with cooking spray or slightly brush with a small amount of healthy cooking oil – and add eggs.

FRIED EGGS: After cracking eggs into your preheated skillet, add a bit of water (approx. 2 tsp.) Cover and cook for 2-3 minutes, then lift & remove with a thin metal spatula.

SCRAMBLED EGGS: Whip eggs in a separate bowl, then add eggs to your preheated skillet.
Cover for a quicker cook time of 2-3 minutes.

POACHED EGGS: Add approx. 4 tablespoons of water to the skillet. Crack eggs over water, and cover. Water will turn into vapor-heat and cook from top down. Check eggs after 3-5 minutes, lift and remove with spatula. (Eggs may simply slide off skillet without the use of a utensil.)

HARD COOKED EGGS: Place a folded wet paper towel in the bottom of your quart/saucepan. Fill with whole eggs and cover. Set temperature to a medium-low setting. When the Vapo Valve clicks, turn heat to the lowest setting. Cook on “LOW” for 10-15 minutes, depending on the number of eggs cooking.
