Kent Instant Egg Boiler Review – A Hassle-Free, Wholesome Breakfast In 3 Minutes!
Soft, medium, or hard- Kent Instant Egg boiler will be your best friend during those rushed mornings.
Eggs are one of those inexpensive and super versatile ingredients. An easily available source of good-quality protein, one of the easiest ways to consume eggs is by boiling them.
Boiled eggs can simply be consumed with a generous sprinkle of some salt and pepper or added to something as fancy as a quinoa salad topped with chopped boiled eggs.
However, boiling eggs to your preferred level requires you to stand around, wait, and keep an eye on them (and off your phone!) This is because one extra minute can result in dramatically overcooked eggs.
Enter electric egg boilers! One of the most beginner-friendly kitchen appliances, egg boilers eliminate all the extra steps. All you need to do is fill water as required, place the eggs, turn the switch on, and wait until they’re done.

Team Mishry’s Kent Egg boiler review also talks in detail about cleaning and maintenance of the product to ensure quality retention.
Mishry recommends cleaning the heating plate with a soft cloth and egg tray before/after each use. If not, the tray starts accumulating particles which results in the bottom part of the eggs having brown ring shapes. Additionally, this also enhances the longevity of the heating plate and tray.
