For those of us new to using rice steamer for

angelaidAugust 17, 2012

hard boiled eggs.

I noticed the first couple of times I steamed eggs, my rice was taking at least twice as long to steam. I ran some vinegar through it and it worked fine again. I started putting vinegar in the dispenser below when the eggs are steaming, but it doesn't seem to help much. I still have to run it through full strength after I'm done with the eggs.

Anyone else notice this?

Hmmm, I guess that the eggs give off enough calcium carbonate from the shells. Shells are 95 to 97% calcium carbonate, which is what make water 'hard' and is removed with vinegar. Which is why you'd run vinegar thru a coffee maker if you have hard water.
