Essentials for Egg Loving Folks’ Kitchens

So, you want to be a gourmet cook and you want to know what materials you’ll need to make your job easier when it comes to cooking eggs. Well, here are 8 helpful tools, as well as a brief explanation on how to use each one.

1. Antibacterial Soap: You should always have antibacterial soap at the kitchen sink so that you can quickly wash your hands, utensils, or anything else that comes in contact with egg material. This will lessen the chance of contracting salmonellosis.

2. Egg ring: The egg ring is a stainless steel metal ring that is used when frying up eggs to ensure that your eggs don’t lose their shape during the frying process.

3. Egg separator: Egg separators are used to separate egg yolks from whites. This helps prevents bacteria, like salmonella, from spreading when you separate the two.

4. Egg slicer: An egg slicer makes perfectly cut slices out of your hard boiled eggs. Simply place your egg into the shaped bottom and fold-over the top portion of the slicer and out pops thin and perfectly cut slices.

5. Egg poacher: This amazing device allows you to place raw eggs into simmering water by utilizing a footed, perforated egg-shaped cup which cleverly maintains the egg’s shape during the poaching process.

6. Steel Spatula: A steel spatula will allow you to successfully fold in egg whites into your favorite recipe.

7. Thermometer: You should always have a thermometer in your refrigerator to ensure that you refrigerator is at least 40 degrees Fahrenheit and should also have one that you can stick in boiling water to ensure that water for boiling eggs reaches at least 160 degrees Fahrenheit to ensure that your eggs are cooked thoroughly.

8. Wire whisks: These come in handy when you need to thoroughly mix ingredients like eggs. They also enable you to smooth out lumpy batters or sauces and can act as a back-up rotary beater.
