    Just to be a little serious for a fraction of a moment...

    Frankie is very, very busy at this time... I know she would drop everything to help out a fellow Funster... but... well... you know... right?

    She will really tell me off for interfering when she gets time to read this though...

    JJ :Cool:

    that is why I addressed it to others as well JJ


    Hi Frankie..[HI] or anyone else that can work it out[/HI]......... taken from the original post at the start of it.

    I put the above in so perhaps others that could read French might have a suggestion... I was not expecting Frankie to drop everything to tell me how to boil my egg JJ.

    Thanks Bill

    Thanks Bill,

    Thought it might be soft for 3 minutes and hard for 7... not sure if you have to prick the top of the e.g. or not.. but bought it in a shop not far from the site.. and it is a French eggs unit.. so thought it might be nice to get it.. my French dictionaries did not help me very much.

    But thanks for checking for me.

    Do you like poached eggs?

    They are much easier to do in a microwave...

    You just need a cup/mug, vinegar (if wanted), a small amount of water and the egg

    Now Bob , if you look at your watch you will see that I was only available same time yesterday ... Babies come first and they take a long time before they had their lunch (one is learning what a spoon is :RollEyes:... takes ages to get rid of 2 grs of soup ) then once they have eaten , .... well you know everything getting in has to go out at one moment !!! Then I have to get them ready to go to bed ...; no won't give you the details ,....just hell ! So now I should be having a little rest and what??? an egg is being a problem :Eeek::Eeek: Bob , I can't translate as you spelt it wrong ... I don't get half of the sentence, so don't even think about having something sensible from google:Laughing::Laughing:
    Now start all over again ... give me a proper sentence to translate and you might have your egg... sometime today or ...tomorrow (B****y hell the youngest is already awake ... i am gutted!!!...;oh NOoooo Owen is awake too ... screaming !) byeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

    Maybe, sometimes, things people write are not read in the way the author intended...

    I must have got it wrong...

    It looked to me like you were calling for Frankie for some help...

    I was trying, as discreetly as possible, to put you (and other Funsters) in the picture re Frankie's current work load... she so often puts other people's needs in front of her own...

    As a lawyer I expect you to argue your corner untill the cows come home... but I do hope the message got through... :thumb:

    Ok i would think it is


    Ajouter de l'eau à la base du coquetier micro-onde (add water at the bottom of the "coquetier" (the stuff you just bought to put the egg in !) et placer un oeuf dans le compartiment en aluminium ; (Put the egg in the aluminum part).Verrouiller le couvercle en forme de poule (lock now the top which has a hen shape (BTW i am now typing with one finger , baby Zoé on my lap.......:RollEyes:)

    soft egg ready in 4 minutes

    hard egg ready in 7 minutes

    I am cooked too.....:yawn: i wish i could go to sleep for 24 hours


    Bob why don't use the good old method ? pan , cold water ... egg in it , put it on gas ..... wait for it to boil , then 1 minute and an half for soft egg , 3 minutes hard !

    Hi Bob,

    As I read it , in my modest French, it basically says put the egg in the chicken thing with a bit of water, put the cover on and lock it, and then put in the microwave.

    for soft eggs 4 minutes, for hard 7 minutes.........

    What it does not mention is whether you have the egg in the shell or not, is it sold for boiling eggs or poaching eggs? I'm guessing its an egg poacher, so therefore out of the shell.

    One time we had one of the Filipino crew on the ship try to boil eggs (in the shell) in a Pyrex dish filled with water in the microwave. :Doh:

    Luckily nobody was standing near by when the eggs exploded, and blew the door off the microwave, spitting out bits of egg and boiling water....:Eeek:
    The microwave never worked again. It reminded me of the Michael Caine scene in the Italian Job.....

    Its amazing how much mess 3 eggs could make. they were well and truly scrambled, all over the galley.....:cry:




    Just added this

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/Chicken-Shape-Kitchen-Microwave-Egg-Poacher-Boiler-Steamer-Cooker-4-Eggs-New-/330723621931#ht_3654wt_932


    I guess it looks like this, its an egg poacher, bit a water, into the micro and 4 mins soft, 7 mins hard.....

    The ones with a mains power lead can do boiled and / or poached
