I have another "favorite thing" that I want to tell you about. A couple of weeks ago, I told you about one of my favorite things in the kitchen. Here is another one.
This one is called Henrietta Hen. She is an egg cooker. You add a bit of water, it has gradated wells where the water is poured. The deepest cooks the egg hard, the next is soft boiled and the last is for poached eggs, which I have never used. It has a special divided cup in which to put four eggs to be poached.
She is cute enough to sit on your counter top. When the water is all boiled out, she chirps. There is a small needle that you use to puncture the eggs before they are stood up in one of 7 little holes to boil.
My cute little mom loves chickens and it is sometimes hard to find her something she loves and is chicken-related. We don't always find things that fit those categories. Anyway I got her one, and she says she makes herself eggs all the time. I loved hers so much that I ordered myself one later on when I found it on a website.
Boiling eggs are not that hard to do, but when you have something like Henrietta here doing the timing for you, it makes it even easier. The eggs turn out perfect every time. I really need something that times stuff for me, because I find I get bored waiting for the pan to heat up and later find I have completely burnt the poor pan, so for me this is perfect. Now I know sweeties like HiHoRosie and Yard Snacker won't be interested because they are "Raw eaters", but for the rest of us who still like to eat eggs, you might just love this as much as I do.
Anyway, that is my review today.
