I place my egg in cold water and switch it to number 6.
Meanwhile I put cold water into the kettle. I wait on my water in the egg pan to boil.
Once it's started to boil, and it needs to be like the first boil bubble you see lol so you need to keep a close eye on it. Switch the kettle on.
Once the kettle has boiled, remove the egg. Normally I will run it under cold water a couple times to cool it down. But it's up to you how you get the egg to peel.
I've tried using egg timers and this is the only way I can do a soft boiled egg. I always end up boiling it for too long. Then you need to add butter to it. But this way is much healthier.
Hope this isn't to boring lol
