Casa Quickie: Easier Egg Cleanup

I like eggs. I like scrambled eggs and fried eggs and poached eggs and hard-boiled eggs and deviled eggs. Omelettes and French toast are friends of mine. I'll eat eggs in any style. I like them, Sam-I-am! But, I do not like dried eggs on dishes! Peeling dried eggs off of my spatula is an unpleasant Saturday morning routine. Fortunately, I learned to save myself a little headache by washing my dishes used for cooking and eating eggs (whatever style egg it may be!) with cold water. Hot water, I now realize, just cooks dried egg (and milk) further onto dishes and cooking utensils. Cold water still requires a little elbow grease, but that's nothing my guns can't handle.

Using cold water would freak me out..especially on eggs that may contain salmonella. I am a little crazy about that kind of stuff though and I do realize that the soup would probably disinfect :)

hmm, I'm not convinced that water that isn't hot enough to boil can "cook" eggs on your dishes. of course, using cold water is better for energy consumption, but hot seems to make things loosen quicker imo
