You can also pick up one of these "As Seen on TV" Stonewave cookers at your local Bed Bugs & Beyond for 10 bucks American and save all those outrageous shipping and handling fees they charge if you order it on line. According to their commercial, it can be used for lots of different microwave recipes, not just eggs.

You might be able to get away with an induction burner hot plate in your dorm room. I'm sure some chemistry major could figure out how to cook meth on one, but at least the fire hazard is eliminated. The only drawback is you can't use aluminum cookware on it, they have to be some kind of ferrous material. I use an induction burner plate at my client's facility to test recipes before they get posted on the company blog, and I found some relatively inexpensive "aluminized steel" pots and pans at a restaurant supply store, and cast iron also works well.

If you're going to do that, put a few drops of vinegar in the water to help the white stay together.

Sir Loin, thanks for the video. That's a good idea.
And I really like those little Stonewave cups!

I did the soft-boiled eggs in the microwave, last night. Worked perfectly.

Are we allowed to get stuff from DC and copy it to our computers for later? I mean if we don't share it or anything, if it's just for our own use? Cat says it's okay, but what about that video SLoB posted? Is that included too?
