Hi, I hate burning propane--so I tried this today. I put two eggs (in the shell) inside the four cup drip coffee pot. I filled it with water, then poured the water into the reservoir. Then I made coffee and waiting 25 minutes. End result was two nicely hard cooked eggs. The coffee pot initially uses about 530 watts for seven minutes. Then it cycles once every three minutes for 13 seconds. I know that 15 minutes was not enough time. I suspect I'll try 20 minutes next time to try to get a nicely soft boiled egg.
