Antunes Logo - How to Use an Antunes Egg Station

Cooking delicious breakfast sandwiches requires all ingredients to be properly made with the right equipment. With toasters for your grains, a griddle for your protein and an egg cooker for the star of your sandwiches, you can cook just about anything. If it's your first day on the job or you just haven’t worked a breakfast shift in a while, Parts Town has you covered. We’ll show you how to use an Antunes egg station so you can efficiently make product that customers will love.

Preparing an Antunes Egg Station for Use

Before you start cooking, the unit needs to be properly prepped. Otherwise, the eggs can stick and turn out subpar.

  • Step 1. Plug in the unit - Plug the power cord in and ensure it’s locked into place.
  • Step 2. Power on the unit - Press the power button to turn on the egg station. Then let it heat up for 20-30 minutes. 
  • Step 3. Install the rack - Install the egg rack by sliding the pins into the holes. 
  • Step 4. Install the rings - Install the egg rings into the rack. Ensure they are resting flat on the griddle to prevent eggs from leaking. 
  • Step 5. Add grease - Apply grease or an equivalent to the grill surface. 

How to Cook Eggs in an Antunes Egg Station 

Once the unit is prepped, you can begin cooking eggs in the unit. 

  • Step 1. Add additional grease - If the surface did not get greased during prep or the station has been used between prep and now, grease the grill surface with melted butter or something equivalent. 
  • Step 2. Crack the egg - Crack a medium-sized egg into the egg ring, starting at the ring closest to the front. 
  • Step 3. Break the yolks - Use a spatula to break the yolks and then close the cover of the egg station. 
  • Step 4. Add water - Fill the water troughs on the top of the cover with water. Ensure they’re completely filled so the unit can fully cook the eggs. 
  • Step 5. Select the cooking cycle - Depending on if the eggs you’re cooking are cold or room temperature, select the cooking cycle that that manual recommends. 
  • Step 6. Loosen the eggs - To loosen the eggs from the rings after cooking is completed, raise the egg rack up by 1 inch and drop it. 
  • Step 7. Lift the rack - Once the eggs are loose from the rings, raise the rack up all the way. 
  • Step 8. Remove the eggs - Use a spatula to scoop the eggs off the grill. 
    • Note. Be careful touching the unit, as it can still be hot.
