Step 1: Pick a Number of Eggs...

i don't think there is a limit, but i've only done up to 3...

Step 2: Crack Em in a Bowl or Cup or ...

i think any container will do.

Step 3: Oil the Steamer...

so it's easy to get the egg off later... i just used olive oil

Step 4: Steam Until Perfect....

it's pretty easy to tell it's going well, you can watch the yolks turn white.

Step 5: Serve... and Clean the Steamer

choose your bowl.

the eggs are really pure, no butter or oil. they come out fluffier than a young rabbit. kind of wonderful.

    I finally tried this out today - it works great. My machine had just enough steam for two eggs. Salt and pepper today - I'll add some garlic next time. Oil isn't required, just makes clean up easier. I'd suggest steaming some water after eating and wiping off the egg after. Just what I needed after a little too much wine last night!

    Nice! I dont have a steamer like this, but i have been microwaving eggs for some time now. scramble and microwave, they puff up when theyre done. . Maybe i can have my girlfriend do this, she works in a coffee shop, and shes the onlly one there ever, so nobody would know... it wouldnt be the first "secret" thing that happened there.

    Hm, maybe i missed something, but it's kinda messy for me. the center of the cupful of eggs solidifies, then it starts being forced upward by the steam being shot down under it, while raw egg goes shooting all over the place... Am i doing something wrong by sticking the steam head into the eggs? Should i not beat them, because i did. Also, anyone else have any spice suggestions? I <3 eggs. Awesome instructable dude. 5.

    This is wicked brilliant. Tried, love it. I threw in a little garlic, dill weed and cracked pepper: best breakfast in weeks.

    I've long been amazed at how eggs taste with different methods of cooking: soft vs. hard boiled, over easy vs. basted, poached vs. microwaved, scrambled vs. fryed. I'm no chemist so cannot explain the many interatciotn that occur during the various cooking processes. Never steamed them but now I'll try. Thanks!
