Certainly, many of us have gotten used to making our egg delicacies ourselves. Ranging from frying the eggs, boiling them, or making some omelette, it is very awesome to be able to use eggs to create different treats. However, as interesting as this might be, we often end up wasting these chicken products.
It might be a bit difficult to remove the shell of the boiled eggs or maybe tedious to make different egg menus for a large number of people. In these circumstances, the need for a machine is compulsory. This machine is known as an egg cooker.
Egg cookers are therefore kitchen equipment that can poach, boil, and scrambled eggs as well as making an omelette. However, it is always difficult to purchase the right egg cookers. You may need to check online for reviews of different egg cookers to make the right purchasing decisions. For instance, you can check out this review by All Great Appliances on “Best egg cookers: 4 Products Review and Information”.
Having known places we can find reviews on these products, it is also important you know how to maintain these egg cookers. Maintaining an egg cooker is not so different from how you take care of other kitchen equipment such as the bread toaster. Yet, I must mention some of these as a reminder and for the sake of enlightenment.
- Keep your cooker unplugged before you clean it
After usage, remember to switch off your egg cooker and unplug it from the main supply to prevent any unexpected electric shock or other sad occurrences. Also, ensure that the cooker is cold before you start to clean as many of them are usually hot after usage.
- Avoid using a dishwasher to wash your cooker’s components
Components of the cooker such as the lid, poach and steaming tray, and the holder tray should be hand-wash by you and not a dishwasher as the temperature might be too high and hence damage them. Make use of a mild detergent to wash and rinse with lukewarm water then you can decide to leave them to dry or dry them with a clean soft towel.
- Clean the body with a soft towel
The body of the cooker should also be cleaned with a soft towel which can be soaked in a little quantity of water to clean it better. Avoid using abrasives to clean the body of your cooker in order not to scratch the surface and you can apply little oil to polish it.
The electric cord should not be soaked in water when cleaning the electric cooker to prevent it from getting spoilt or malfunctioning.
If you can carry out these maintenance procedures regularly then you will be assured of getting your breakfast done on time without thinking of cleaning the egg cooker in haste which is even dangerous to your health. You will also be able to enjoy your cooker for a couple of years before they develop any fault or you consider a replacement.
