I used to have an older egg steamer similar to this and miss it a lot. This one’s perfect and gets the job done with easy clean up. Nice little jingle to let you know it’s finished cooking. Marks on side of the water measuring cup are suggestions, You’ll have to play around with the amount needed to achieve the desired hardness or softness for the style of eggs your cooking.* Poached eggs without the boiling-water-on-the-stove-top mess anyone? Just spray the tray with non-stick spray and fill water cup to about the poach mark +/-. Use tongs to pick up the hot tray when done. Carefully pour the moisture off the eggs first using a utensil to keep them from sliding out, then slide them onto your plated toast. They’ll slide right out! Delicious!* Try this; Spray the pan that comes with it with your favorite non-stick spray..Use a fork to fluff and stir two eggs in it like you would for scrambled eggs. Fill water cup to about the MED mark +/-. Toast two pieces of bread. When cooker’s finished use a set of tongs to pick up the hot pan, then place one piece of toast over it and turn the pan upside down placing the egg on your toast. Salt and pepper or garnish to taste, then add the other piece of toast. Makes a “fluffy” egg sandwich that will definitely fill you up!Enjoy!

It does what it’s supposed to do. What you need to know is, there are lots of variables involved in getting the boiled egg you like. It’s a matter of trial and error until you figure it out.– size of egg matters; the bigger the egg, the more water & time it’s going to need (more than it says)– temperature of egg matters; whether it’s lukewarm from the hen-house or just out of a cold fridge– your personal take on what “soft,” “medium,” and “hard” is supposed to be likeI started off with an Extra Large “Country Hen” brand egg (just one egg) and filled the little cup to exactly the “medium” mark. I did not puncture the egg. It steamed for around 4 minutes and the music came on. I turned off the music and let it sit in the unit another 30 seconds, then transferred it to a bowl of cold water for one minute, then started peeling it. I got most of the peel off one-third of the egg and was having trouble getting the peel off. Then I realized the egg was really, really squishy and not cooked. So, I deposited the partly peeled egg back in the unit and filled the cup to the “soft” setting this time. At the end of 2 minutes the music went off and I could see that the white of the egg looked a little firmer, so I removed the egg (with a potholder) and tried peeling it again; it was still kind of squishy. I repeated this last process one more time, filling the cup to “soft” and then was able to peel the egg; still a little difficult to peel but I was finally able to slide a spoon under the egg’s membrane and got it loose. The photo is what it looked like after I placed the egg on toast and chopped it up. All I can say is it’s an egg, and it came out the way I intended it, but I need to figure out the water measurement better next time so I didn’t have to go through all that rigamarole. I provide this description of what I did for others who find that their egg is not quite cooked enough; you can stick it back in the unit and cook it some more! It works.As for the unit itself, there are a lot of things I really like about it:– The overall shape is pleasantly round, and not bulbous or squarish like some of them. It’s more organic looking with roundy legs and not stick-like legs.– The cord is white, not black like some other brands, and blends in better with my kitchen counter. It’s not super long, but it’s long enough.– I got the yellow one and I’m really pleased with the color; it’s the same soft color as a cooked egg yolk, and not glaringly yellow.– The top part of the unit can be secured onto the bottom part by turning the top so that it “locks” with the bottom part; the instructions say not to do that, though, while it’s cooking. But this makes it easier to lift the unit together with its top and parts inside it, instead of having separate pieces that can fall off. Some of the other brands don’t have this feature.– The unit only cooks 6 eggs at a time, not 7 like most, but that’s fine with me because I only need to cook eggs for one or two people.– The fact that it only does 6 eggs means that the center of the egg holder is free for a little spindle that can be placed there before cooking so you can lift the entire egg tray up and move it to cold water. Other brands don’t have that.– The alarm is pleasantly musical and not too loud, unlike some other brands with a loud buzzer that knocks you off your feet.Cons:– The measuring cup is not marked with ink, just raised indicators same color as the clear plastic. You have to hold it up to the light to see how much you’re putting in there. I may order a better measuring cup for teaspoons, tablespoons, and ounces.Anyhow, I think I’ve gotten the best egg cooker available. The price is right, the unit is cute, it works, even if you flub up and have to keep putting the egg back in there, even partially peeled, it will still cook you an egg. And mine came out just fine even with all that fuss. I plan on getting better at it.I will report back if I come up with more tips.Update after 5 uses: I decided to punch a hole in the end of the egg, and this does seem to make it just a little easier to peel. I’m using Extra Large eggs, and it definitely takes a lot more water (= longer time). I’ve filled the cup to the “Hard” level, as well as a little above that, and the egg comes out more like soft/medium-boiled (but not runny). I don’t leave it in the machine; I take it right out and lower it into a bowl of water with ice cubes for a minute. Every morning I can look forward to an egg now, without the hassle of getting out pots and pans and trying to guess how long the egg is going to take or winding up with a harder or softer egg.

This is a fantastic little device that I wish I knew about years ago! The soft/hard boiled eggs always come out perfect and we love making omelets with it, as well. To me it’s more like a frittata, but either way it’s good. I tend to use slightly more water than it calls for and let it sit for a couple of minutes when it’s done. Kind of trial and error until you figure out what works best for you. The supposed “rust” everyone is going on about is not rust. It’s just mineral deposits from hard water which is why we buy a jug of distilled water and have no issues. If you don’t want to buy distilled water you can simply scrub it with the stiff side of a damp sponge and it will come off. The chime when it is done cooking is quite loud but it doesn’t bother me because I just walk into the kitchen, click the button off and then unplug it to reset it. No biggie. Great price too, so I’ll probably giving a few of these out for Christmas.

I have always struggled to make boiled eggs. The eggs are either under cooked or over cooked on the stove along with sometimes the shells have cracked in the pot. I thought I would try this egg cooker that I seen online that had rave reviews.I LOVE this egg cooker. It is so easy to use it. You put the water and eggs in the cooker and wait for the timer to go off. The timer plays a pleasant song to let you know when they are done. The shells are easy to peel off which is great especially if you are making deviled eggs.My only tips for using the egg cooker is:* It needs more water than what is on the measuring cup. I initially followed the directions for the boiled eggs but they were under cooked so I had to experiment with the water level so it would cook the eggs the way I liked it.* I do not use the pin to pierce the eggs. I used the pin once to pierce the eggs but it made a mess in the cooker along with the boiled eggs looked odd afterwards because the eggs ooze out of the hole.* I put vinegar in the metal tray of the egg cooker for a few minutes after it cools down to get it clean because there will be a brown film on the bottom of it. The brown film will disappear without scrubbing it if you use the vinegar.I would highly recommend it. I bought one for my son for college and he loves it. It has come in handy when he is hungry and he wants an easy, fast breakfast.

This egg cooker is fantastic. I love medium boiled eggs but, they are difficult to achieve. Not anymore! This egg cooker (I have the 6 egg version) did a great job! I added a little more water than the “medium” fill line because I like my eggs closer to just under boiled/firm. Almost like a creamy center. The eggs were perfect- I was telling my husband (who scoffed at the need for another appliance) how amazing the eggs were. He jokingly said “are you about to write a review?!” so, I snapped the photo and here we are.The egg poker at the bottom of the measuring cup worked great! It has a bit of a cathartic crunch; if you’re into that kinda thing. The eggs peeled easily (and peeling a medium egg is extra tricky)!Besides the yummy perfect eggs, the appliance is small which is super nice for storing. It doesn’t take up much more space than a standard cereal bowl.

My 9 year old loves eggs and is learning how to cook things. I got this to help with that. No need to have a pot of boiling water to keep an eye on. This makes it so easy. So many eggs have been prepared. Makes perfect hard, soft, and poached eggs. The issue is the omelet, it doesn’t cook all the way, like really raw. We just slide it onto a plate and pop it into the microwave to finish. To clean it is a bit of an annoyance. Not easily done by a 9 year old, due to trying to keep the electrical bits from getting soaked. But over all the use of it out ways the annoyances. And has allowed my 9 year old to have some fun in the kitchen.

I bought this over a year ago and have probably boiled 10 or more dozed eggs and I abosolutely love this egg cooker. I like hard boiled eggs for my salad and my husband like them for egg salad. I was always having so much trouble peeling my eggs, no matter what tried and true method I tried. This cooker ended all of that with the first use! The little needle that you use to poke the bottom of the egg, allows the steam to go in-between the egg and the membrane making peeling a virtual breeze! I cannot speak highly enough about this product. Thank you “Mandy In The Making” on You Tube for showing me yours!

This is the coolest little device. I am a 70 year old woman who doesn’t cook anymore. I was looking for a way to make eggs and when I saw this I knew I needed to give it a try. So glad I did. I went online and watched a couple of how to videos before I used it the first time. I’ve made the best scrambled eggs in it a couple of times now. It works exactly as the instructions say it will. Would for sure give it as a gift. The size is perfect for my little senior apartment. Looking forward to making soft boiled eggs and hard boiled eggs in it, too. I love it!
This is one of my most frequently used small kitchen appliance. It makes near-perfect hard cooked eggs that are easy to peel and look great when making deviled eggs. Easy to follow directions are included along with a small measuring cup with a sharp pin to puncture the egg before cooking – don’t skip this step – it’s the key to easy peeling. Once the cooker is finished, immediately your eggs in an ice bath for 10 minutes then peel away! When peeling, make sure you get under the membrane and the shell will come off easily. The eggs will be very hot when finished cooking so be careful. You can also use the cooker to steam single serving food like broccoli, salmon, or canned veggies. I would like to say the downside to this handy gadget is the alarm when it’s finished the cook cycle, but I can’t say that because I can hear it anywhere in my house (unlike my clothes dryer) and get the eggs in the ice water immediately to stop over cooking. I’ve bought this as gifts and have recommended it to several friends.
I love the tiny size. It doesn’t need to be bigger. It saves room in my townhouse kitchen. And it makes life easier while we are renovating the kitchen. All the parts fit easily under the dome when locked and it stays out of the way until I need it. Poached eggs are my favorite and now there’s no mess. My weekly half dozen boiled eggs are absolutely perfectly cooked. BUT I would warn to store the steamed-in-the-shell eggs carefully since there will be a pinhole on top. Anything that gets near them will seep in!
