    Question Hard boil eggs in the oven?

    Hello all, i have a problem, I love hard boil eggs. But i live in miltary shacks. All i have in my room is a george grill, microwave that is also a convection oven (using hot air). So i can bake with pots and pans up to 475C.
    So i have no access to a stove and cant boil eggs. Is there a way i could use the convection oven to make hard boil eggs?
    Or can someone mail me some?

    any tips would be great.

    Do you have access to a barbecue? Boil them on there.

    Make friends with the cooks at your mess hall or whatever you call it. Have them boil up a batch for you.

    How about buying a hotplate or are those banned?

    yeah hotplates are banned, i shouldnt even have the little grill but i hide it if i have to. I dont eat at the mess hall, not the best food there. I was wondering if i could put a pot with water in the oven, then heat it uptill it boils, stick in the eggs till its cooked?

    I heard i think that you could never boil a egg in the microwave? it would explode? no idea

    Eggs in the microwave heat up too fast and the pressure has no place to go. Boom what a mess.

    I think you need to concentrate the heat to boil it properly, try it out nothing wrong with experimenting eggs are cheap.

    You don't have to eat there, just borrow a burner on the stove.

    thanks for the tips, but i found the solution to my problem. I got a ketal with a large opening. So i can plug that in and throw my eggs into it. Made a little hook thing out of a clothes hanger so the eggs dont touch the heating element.
    thanks guys

    If you dont want to go through all that trouble and have a convection oven and can you put a metal pot in it...
    the correct way to boil egg is to drop them into boiling water just of the stove so as long as you have a pot and fifteen minutes your good
