I think you misunderstood - I simply meant that any time I need to put something in boiling water on the hob, I boil the water in the kettle first and then pour the boiling water into a saucepan. Its much much quicker than boiling it on the hob.
Speed is of no concern to me really. And although gas is cheaper than electric, it's minimal. So I just boil the water in the pan. The resultant boiled egg differs not which ever way the water is boiled.

OK - I thought you were saying that the last method takes longer so is more expensive. My hob takes about ten mins to boil water whereas the kettle is only a couple of mins.
