This is the bomb! I’ve been craving eggs like crazy lately, this is the answer to my egg issues. And to think, I almost didn’t buy it because some people were posting pictures of melted plastic on the heating element. I had an inkling of an idea that they were using the egg cooker incorrectly, and after receiving mine and reading the instructions, I verified it. I posted pictures of the instructions for an omelet, and poached eggs. If you read number seven and eight, you can clearly see where it states to put the poached egg tray, and/or the omelette tray, on top of the egg tray. Nowhere does it say to put the plastic directly on the metal heating element. Duh. What do you think will happen if you put plastic on a hot, metal plate? You wouldn’t put anything plastic on your heating element on your stove, would you? Anyway, I digress. This cooked my eggs perfectly the very first time, right out of the box. The Amazon box was really damaged, through no fault of Amazon, so I was concerned that I would get a broken product. The packaging was first class, so the cooker was totally protected! I would post a picture of my perfectly cooked eggs, but I already ate them. So at this point, all I can suggest is that you order this, and in two days when it shows up, cook your own eggs! Nobody in my family knows this yet, but this is what everyone is getting for Christmas this year. Too bad grandma has that egg allergy….

I got so sick and tired of cleaning egg off of pans that were supposedly “non stick” that I decided to order this and I am so glad I did. This is now one of my most favorite things in the kitchen. You set it up, walk away, it shuts off on it’s own and you go over to it and it’s like magic. It makes the best eggs. Not only that, today I made hard boiled eggs and the shell when being removed was in very large pieces and just slipped right off. When making two poached eggs, I placed two eggs in the egg poach dish and they turned out perfectly. There is a little plastic cup that comes with this and right on the cup it tells you how much water to put in for whatever type of egg you want to make. I even took “Powdered” eggs, and mixed it with water and stuck in the omelette dish and it turned out perfect. I am so impressed, I bought my mother one for Christmas. You can’t go wrong. The cooking pieces are plastic and egg just cleans right off of it and you can even eat the eggs right out of the poached egg pan or the omelette dish. Also, the bottom of the cup allows you to poke a hole in the egg to make hard boiled eggs to prevent cracking but I didn’t even use it and only one of the hard boiled eggs had a crack but this allowed me to just remove the shell with ease. And, think of the health issues here, you don’t have to use any butter or oil or anything – cooks a healthy egg. Today, I started the day with poached eggs. Then for lunch, I made some hardboiled eggs and took one of the eggs and made an egg salad sandwich. Now instead of buying a dozen eggs, I’m purchasing a package of 18 eggs because this IS A HIT!

This little egg cooker is a POWERHOUSE in an extremely compact size. For those who had “issues” with this unit, here’s a tip-READ THE MANUAL! Your eggs WILL NOT leak out if you FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS and place them pierced side UP. There are instructions regarding the water amounts required for ALL cooking methods, BUT YOU MUST READ THE MANUAL.I work in Customer Service for a MAJOR high-end home appliance line, and I have to say that 80% of the calls I receive daily could be easily resolved without the assistance of my collegues and me IF ONLY PEOPLE READ THEIR MANUALS, but then, we’d be out of work! Confidently purchase this great little egg cooker-it performs beautifully IF YOU FOLLOW THE DIRECTIONS. When I first plugged mine in, the light was already on. Because I had READ MY MANUAL, I was aware that this was NOT A DEFECT, but simply due to the fact that the button had been pushed during packing. Resolution-add smallest amount of water, turn on, it AUTOMATICALLY STOPS when water has evaporated. I let it cool, loaded it up with eggs and had 7 perfectely hard cooked eggs in about 12 minutes! So, in closing-confidently purchase this egg cooker, BUT READ THE MANUAL!
Omigod I love my egg cooker!! After having seen & used these in Europe for years I finally did a search and discovered they do sell them here too. Perfect for cooking up to 7 soft/hard boiled eggs (now steamed instead). The shells fall off easily, the yolks stay yellow, and it’s quicker to use than the classic method of boiling water. Even poached eggs turn out perfect every time! Highly recommend for anyone who loves eggs.

Works great for hard boiled eggs but not so well for omelettes. I think you’d need to add more water to finish the cooking. If I were a cat I would have lost a life when that finish buzzer went off. It sounds like a very angry demented bird and won’t shut off until you do it.

I use this for boiling eggs all the time. It used to be so messy for me to boil the eggs in water and later it was also so hard to remove the shell. I don’t know what’s the science behind, but removing shells after boiling this machine is so easy. I’ve been using this for 2 months now and I have no disappointments, it’s quick, uses less water and makes great eggs.
I eat a lot of eggs because of my diet (weight watchers lol). So it’s nice to have an easy, quick, less messy/complicated way to make eggs. I use the poached egg one the most just because I love having somewhat runny eggs. I saw a lot of people reporting that the plastic melts… don’t listen to them they clearly didn’t read the instruction manual or can’t follow directions. You HAVE to put down the hard boiled egg thing down first THEN put the poached egg/omelette thing on top of that. Also a lot of people complained about “burning” on the metal part. Again, if they had red the instructions they would realize that it says to use distilled/bottled water instead of tap water to prevent that from happy. Honestly it surprises me how many people here aren’t troubleshooting before posting a review. The product is great and works perfectly, you just have to follow the instructions. It’s not that hard people. Anyways the one thing that’s kind of obnoxious about it is the buzzer when it’s finished. I get why it has to be loud but I’m a really jumpy person so Even though I’ve used this thing more times than I can count it still startled me when it goes off. I wish there was a feature where it started low then gradually got louder kind of like a tea kettle so it’s not so sudden for us jumpy people. Not a big deal but it would make me love this thing that much more. Also if you need to clean the metal part I suggest using warm water and white vinegar to remove stains or stuck on stuff. Since you can’t submerge the egg maker or remove the metal thing using soap isn’t something I do just because it’s hard to rinse without the chance of getting water in the egg maker. I hope my review cleared up a few things for people on the fence of getting this. My biggest suggestion is when you get it sit down and read ALL the instructions. You’ll have a better outcome and will make life a lot easier.
It came in on time, it functions well and all the pieces that should be there were there.I put 4 large eggs in it and I got hard boiled eggs from it. I was away from the machine a few minutes too long and perhaps I put a bit too much water in it so it hard boiled. I wanted medium boiled. This isn’t an issue with the product, for in the manual it mentions to turn the power off at the end when there is no more water and the alarm goes off or the eggs will cook more, and also that there is a trial and error to get the consistency you are looking for when it comes to the amount of water to use. Don’t worry though it isn’t rocket science :)The eggs came out perfect and were very tasty. I definitely recommend this product.
