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.

Hi,

I ended up short changing myself for time for supper--so I decided what the heck--and cooked myself another coffee pot egg.

This time I took the egg out at 20 minutes (it had been in the fridge at 40 f). Energy use according to my kill-a-watt was 0.08 of a kwh, so 80 watt hours. I did continue to test until 25 minutes had gone bye but the end result was still 0.08 kwh.

80 watt hours / 10 = 8 amp-hours.

For those of you who cook, the egg was barely done to soft boiled status. I think 21 minutes would be a better time--or if the egg had been at room temperature that also might have helped.
