the question of “how do you know if an egg is boiled” has been a recurring one to me for a long time. The answer lies in the way that the egg is handled when it’s cooked.
First, you have to cook the egg. After that, you really will know that the egg is boiled. You can’t really boil something in the air. The water in this case is actually heated by the egg. This means that once the egg is cooked, the heat in the water is transferred to the egg. If you want to boil something in the water, you have to put it in a pot. The same goes for how you cook a steak.
If the egg is cooked, the water has to be heated and the egg has to stay warm while it cooks. This is especially true in a pot. If an egg is cooked inside a pot, the water will not boil unless you add salt or sugar. If you add salt or sugar, the water will also heat up. But the water is actually heated by the egg, so it is actually heated by the egg.
This is why it’s so hard to boil eggs. It’s like trying to boil a potato and not being able to put it into boiling water.
Just like you can’t boil a potato in a pot, you can’t boil an egg inside a pot. The only exception is when the egg is wrapped in foil and sealed in a deep bowl or a pot. Otherwise, the water will boil and the egg will stay warm. Because when the egg is inside the pot, the water will actually boil and heat up. Again, this is why it is so hard to boil eggs.
If you do not have a really big pressure cooker, you need to use something like a meat thermometer to get the temperature of the water. A really good thermometer is not only one that is easy to use (just take a hair dryer to it) but one that does not burn your skin (like a hair dryer) or turn into a black hole of heat (like a meat thermometer).
Now that you have a basic understanding of how boiling water works, you can actually figure out whether an egg is or is not boiled. Start by checking the water temperature. If the water is in the range of 90°F to 115°F, your egg is probably cooked. If the water is in the range of 115°F to 135°F, you may have an extra-thick yolk.
If you want to see if an egg is boiled, take a hair dryer to it. The hair dryer will quickly remove the white from the yolk, leaving you with a black egg.
Another quick way to see if an egg is boiled is to take a look at the color of the water, then take a quick peek at the top of the egg. If the water is black, it’s probably boiled.
The color of the water isn’t always the best indicator of whether an egg is boiled. If your water is a nice dark blue, the yolk may still be tough. If the water is a nice dark blue with a bit of a pink tint, it’s likely that there’s still a bit of yolk there. It’s just a matter of how much you want to put in there.
