I recently stumbled across this method of making boiled eggs when searching online for egg recipes.

Simply add water to your strainer and bring to a medium boil. You will have to experiment with your steamer, the amount of water and heat to work out the exact times to get different yolk hardness.

I left one egg in for an additional 5 minutes to get a hard boiled egg.
