I got a kitchen blowtorch for Christmas.
Frying eggs in vegetable oil for breakfast, it occurred to me that the blowtorch would be an effective way to cook the last few uncooked parts of the white on the top of the eggs, as an alternative to flipping the eggs, or spooning over hot oil.
So I tried it, and it worked.
However, I realised soon after that the flame might have ignited the hot oil, causing a really nasty fire.
- Is the risk genuine?
- If so, can it be mitigated?
I was using rapeseed oil.
