I put some eggs on to boil and foregot all about them until I started smelling something really rank. I suddenly remembered the eggs and went to check them. The water was gone and the eggs were burning. It totally ruined my pan and the eggs. Has this ever happened to you? I feel really stupid when I do stuff like this.

NO I have not forgotten eggs but I have ruined other food and the pans it was in. I tried to cook a roast out on the barbarque one time in a baking pan. I got the coals too hot, burned the roast pan and all man that was a good pan also. I had to find something else to cook for dinner. My plan was to cook the roast on the coals out doors so I would not have to heat the house up becuse it was summer and I wanted roast. Next time I will do it the slow cooker. LOL

Oh no, what a shame. I bet you had your taste buds set for that roast too. It's a shame you ruined the pan, they are not cheap. Neither is the meat.

ive boiled eggs in the microwave when i was making eggs for a friend and left for 6 minutes and then bang the eggs exploded ...what a mess. ive perfected it now just leave them for 3-4 minutes and youve got the perfect hard boiled egg but anymore and your whole microwave could be damaged

I never knew you could boil eggs in the microwave. I always figured they would explode. I don't usually cook in the microwave but I heat frozen dinners, and soup, and thaw things out in it.
