"Just be aware that it will take more than 5 or 6 minutes to get the egg mixture to 160 degrees. I had the stovetop on low and it took a good 30 minutes of heating/mixing with the mixer to get it to 160. Be careful - the temperature will rise quickly toward the end. But the results are worth it - it's really delicious when it is finished."
