Care of your Egg Coddler


Egg Coddlers are manufactured in Royal Worcester fireproof hard porcelain. Porcelain is a true cookware material impervious to boiling water with excellent thermal shock resistance properties.

During cooking the Egg Coddler should not be totally submerged in boiling water. Stand the egg coddler in a pan of boiling water taking care that the water level only reaches halfway up the porcelain body of the coddler to ensure gentle cooking of the egg.

Egg Coddlers should not be used in a microwave oven or exposed to a naked flame.


Egg Coddlers can be washed in the dishwasher. However some dishwasher detergents are caustic and abrasive and may affect the decoration and glaze.

Do not use abrasive scouters on glazed or decorated areas. Most stains or burnt on particles can be removed by soaking in warm water before washing.

General use

Do not screw the lid on too tightly – a loose turn is sufficient.

Take care when removing the coddler from the water as the lid may be hot.

Egg Coddlers are suitable for use in the fridge – they make original jam and marmalade pots for the breakfast table!
