Cooking an egg in the dishwasher: intensive cycle (70-75°)

April 21, 2011

 If you want to try this at home, you’ll need: 1 organic, free-range egg (or as many as you wish), a glass container big enough to contain the eggs, water and a dishwasher full of very dirty dishes!

Put the eggs in the container, fill it with water, and close well.

Use your dishwasher and detergent as you normally would do – quite simply, place the container with the eggs in any free space that’s left over inside.

Turn the dishwasher on, using the intensive cycle – the one for very dirty dishes, pots and pans etc bearing in mind that it’s the cycle that uses the most energy. 

When the cycle is finished, take out the container and you’ll have an egg that’s hard-boiled but still nice and soft. 

You can eat the egg straight away or keep it in the fridge for a few days.

I like to use these eggs to make a topping for toasted bread that I serve as a starter. 



2 hard-boiled eggs

6 black olives (remove the pips)

1 pinch of parsley

Olive oil, extravirgin

a few capers

Salt and pepper



Finely chop the olives, parsley and capers and mash the eggs in with a fork. Season with olive oil, salt and pepper. Serve on toasted bread.
