I know many of you quilt bloggers show vintage items on Monday's. I usually don't join you because I have very few vintage items in my home.
But today I want to play.
This is an egg cooker that I inherited from my mother. I meant to show you this at Easter to go along with the egg themes.
Do you remember when appliances were made out of a heavy grade metal? This egg cooker is quite sturdy and will probably last longer than I will.
The attachment on top has a measuring area for the water. You can move the dial side to side depending on if you want hard or soft poached eggs.
Inside there is a dish for poached eggs.
Underneath is another section just for boiling eggs. You could do soft or hard boiled.
I kept this appliance because it is a visual reminder of my mother. She had eggs nearly every morning of her life, and I watched her use this appliance year after year. You can still see the mineral deposits from the water. Looking at my mother's egg cooker makes me miss her and wish for another simple morning just to visit over breakfast.
Remember when appliance cords looked like this?
Do you wonder what your family will keep as treasures from your house once you are gone?
I'm sure my mother is up in heaven right now shaking her head and thinking "The egg cooker? Go figure. "
