What's the best way to boil an egg? Well when it comes to the basics - I always think Delia knows best. I read with interest her instructions to just boil the egg for a minute (Method 1) and then take it off the heat and leave in the pan for six minutes. And you know what? It really works. I actually leave it on the hotplate, since it is still hot and then 6 minutes is plenty.
This must save about 75% of the energy of leaving the hob switched on the whole time.
So now you can enjoy your boiled egg at a much lower cost!
