5 Ways to Cook Eggs Without a Stove


Eggs are a quick, nutritious breakfast when you’re in a hurry. But when you’re away from a stove (or you’re a college student living in a dorm without one), what options do you have for cooking eggs? Fortunately, there are several alternative ways to make an egg that doesn’t require the use of a stove! These hacks are perfect whether you’re on the go or on a camping trip. Here are five methods that work just as well.

1. Electric Kettle

Using an electric kettle to boil your eggs is super easy! It’s also a great solution when you’re on a budget. A good kettle should only cost you around $15 versus a stove that costs in the hundreds. To start, fill the kettle to the top with cold water. Next, place the eggs at the bottom of the kettle. A typical-sized kettle should be able to boil around 4 eggs at a time. Make sure the eggs aren’t floating since it could mess with the steam cut-off tube. Using a small notebook or stack of flashcards, prop up the kettle. This will prevent the eggs from contacting the heating coils and breaking. Once the kettle boils and turns off, wait for about 15 minutes. Don’t reach into the eggs to take them out; drain the water first. Presto! Breakfast is ready!
