Cooking eggs seems to be one of the simplest things in the world. But, that is not always the case, especially if you cook them in stainless steel utensils. We have heard stories of overcooked eggs, eggs that stick to the utensil, and eggs that burn. This guide has all the tips you will need to make perfect eggs every time in your Rena Ware.
A big part of cooking eggs is finding the balance between temperature, the right amount of fat, and cooking time. Here are the steps you need to take to improve your egg cooking skills in stainless steel utensils. Let’s begin!
The right temperature
If we don’t want the eggs to stick, we need to preheat the utensil to the proper temperature using medium heat. It may take a few minutes, so be patient. While it may be tempting, don’t turn up the heat on your stove. The construction of your Rena Ware allows excellent heat conductivity. If you use high heat, the utensil will get too hot, and your eggs will burn.
To ensure that the utensil has reached the correct temperature, perform the water test. Here’s how to do it. Place the utensil on the stove and preheat over medium heat for 3 to 4 minutes. Use your fingertips to add a few water droplets to the utensil.
– If the droplets sizzle and bounce, the utensil is the right temperature, and you can continue.
– If the droplets evaporate, the utensil is too hot! Lower the heat and wait a few minutes, then repeat the test.
– If the droplets spread, the utensil is not hot enough. Keep preheating until it reaches the right temperature.
If you still aren’t sure how to do the water test, watch this video to learn how.
Add some fat
Eggs are mostly protein with very little natural fat, so you can’t avoid using some fat when frying them. One teaspoon per egg is enough.
The goal of using fat is to create a barrier between the utensil and the eggs. As the eggs cook, the protein tends to stick to the utensil unless we use some fat to prevent it. You can choose the type of fat that you like. We have found we get better results when we use butter.
The star of this blog is eggs, so here are some tips for using them:
● Cook eggs that are at room temperature; this generally gives better results.
● Always use fresh eggs. As eggs age, they lose some of their natural moisture. Using eggs that are not fresh may result in drier eggs for breakfast.
Now that you know the basics of cooking eggs, let’s move on to the most common ways to cook them.

Hard-boiled eggs cooked with the “water-less” cooking method
Did you know that you can prepare hard-boiled eggs the “water-less” way? With this method, the yolk is creamy and the perfect consistency. Forget about them changing color and becoming grayish, plus it will be easy to remove the shell. The preparation of these eggs is very simple, just follow these steps:
Place 4 eggs in the 1.5 utensil and add 5 tablespoons of water. Cover with the Nutri √ Sensor in the “open” position and cook for 2 minutes over medium heat until you hear the whistle.
If you cook on an electric stove, turn the Nutri ✓ Sensor to the “closed” position and turn off the heat. If you use a gas stove, turn the Sensor to the “closed” position and cook for 6 minutes on low heat, then turn off the heat. In both cases, let the eggs rest covered for 10 minutes.
To make soft-boiled eggs, use the same method as for hard boiled eggs. If you use an electric stove, turn off the heat after you hear the whistle. If you use a gas stove, reduce the heat to low and cook for 3 minutes. Follow this link to see the complete recipe.
