There’s a correct pot for every application. Too big and it takes too long to boil and wastes too much water. Too small and your soft boiled eggs might boil over and make a mess. Besides, an induction tabletop appliance requires the right size to heat properly with its magnetic waves. So it was that I’ve been looking for that perfect pot that had to be the right size to boil 2-3 eggs in water and be made of a magnetic material, steel or iron.
To the rescue comes Marilyn, my hostess and friend who has cupboards full of cookware. She simply found the pot, walked downstairs to my man cave and handed it to me. The hunt is over. She suggested I wash it thoroughly as it had been a while since it last was used. I had just the right Scotch scrubby sponge and Dawn dish detergent to handle that job.
Now I must wait for the morning to return so I can try my new perfect pot on soft boiled eggs, not cooked too long or too short but just right. That would be boiling water for 4 minutes, served with a toasted Portuguese muffin with real butter. Add a large cup of Lipton tea steeped to perfection and Voila, you’ve just made the perfect man cave breakfast. Thanks Marilyn!
