Nifty. I just don't think they were cooked enough for deviled eggs or sliced eggs.

I've seen people using their muffin tins to do the same thing. One egg in each muffin hole.

Yes, but 30 mins in the oven plus the time taken to heat the oven to temp is a rather expensive way of cooking a batch of eggs

I never said it was a good way to cook eggs, I just said it was interesting!

I'll stick with my TNT method of putting the eggs in a basin with a tight fitting lid, cover them with tap water, bring to a rolling boil for one full minute, turn off the gas and let them sit for 15 or 20 minutes in the covered pan. Perfect hard boiled eggs every time.

Yes, but it was presented as a practical way to do a large quantity of eggs at one time, perhaps when burner space is limited.

I've done it this way, the eggs are very good, I used a muffin tin. They seem a bit creamier to me than when cooked in water.

I still use water to do just a few eggs, but if I did a whole dozen the oven method works well.
