Every once in a while you’re at work and you have a craving for some eggs, since you rushed off so early to the office that you didn’t get to eat a full breakfast. Lucky for you, there’s now a way for you to cook eggs at the office, using nothing but a microwave. That’s right—you don’t need a stovetop and a stainless steel pan to enjoy some eggs on a weekday morning.

Generally all those tools you see online that claim to cook eggs in the microwave are a load of crap. They leave you with weirdly textured eggs that taste nothing like the real thing. But there’s one cooking tool that will give you the perfect hard-boiled egg every time. It’s the Nordic Ware Microwave Egg Boiler, and it costs less than $15 on Amazon.

Fill the base with water, place your eggs in, and microwave for 6-10 minutes. It’s a good idea to place the egg boiler on a plate before you put it in the microwave, because it will be *very* hot when you take it out. Let the eggs sit for a few minutes before you peel and enjoy.

Are you more interested in poached eggs at the office, though? Feeling a little fancy? You don’t even need a special contraption to make this happen.

Crack a raw egg into a mug of water and microwave for 45 seconds. Gently stir it, then put it back in for 20 second increments at a time until it’s done to your liking. Stir in between every segment.

Amazing, right? Don’t come running to us the next time you’ve got a hankering for eggs at the office. We’ve equipped you with all the information you need.
