    The egg cooker was relatively easy to use and cooked my hard boiled eggs perfectly. I have not had a chance to use it for any other style of egg or steam veggies in it although I will try them too.nThe only con for me was that the pin on which you are instructed to make a small hole in the end of each egg is a little hard to use. You have to tap the egg fairly hard to make the hole. It made me fear totally breaking the eggs in the process.

    I absolutely love this egg cooker! It’s going to make my holiday cooking so much easier and faster! Eggs cook so quick. And I don’t have to use my stove! If you like eggs, this egg cooker is a must have!

    This makes perfect hard boiled eggs! No guessing needed. I was concerned when the instructions said to puncture the eggs prior to cooking as I thought they would crack, but it worked easily. Already recommended this to a friend!

    Very simple to use, cooks quickly. The only complaint I have is the water scorches on the metal cooking plate. I unplug it immediately but it is already dry and scorched by then. I scrub with Barkeepers Friend to remove. Other than that I love it!

    5 stars for ease of use! My 7yo was thrilled she could do it herself. However….the eggs bubbled and leaked out of the holes you pierce to avoid explosions. It was pretty messy to clean the eggs and cooker after. We used farm fresh eggs and wonder if that is part of the issue. Will try again with store bought eggs soon.

    This little gadget works like a charm and cooks eggs to perfection. We eat a lot of hard boiled eggs, we cook them, place them in a pan and bang them around a bit to break shells, add some cold water to the pan and they peel clean and easy.

    Works amazingly, and it’s incredibly simplistic so it’s easy to clean and impossible to break. The only thing is it comes with little dishes that you can crack into to make a little egg square for like a breakfast sandwich, the thing is you have to make sure to use PAM on it because the eggs will stick to it if you don’t. But trust me, for the price, it’s worth it.

    Works as described. Fast and easy! Two suggestions: use a non-stick spray in the poached egg tray sections to keep the eggs from sticking and use distilled water to avoid mineral build-up.

    This makes great hard, medium or soft boiled eggs. The poacher feature was a little messy as we use extra large eggs, but we wanted it to make hard boiled eggs without all the trouble of watching the pot boil, making sure the timing was just right etc. And it works! If a little bit of egg gets cooked on the bottom, just spray some distilled white vinegar on it and it will wipe off. It’s a great little appliance, I wish they made one that cooked a dozen at a time, we eat a lot of HB eggs in our house! I highly recommend it for busy people, it’s a really simple appliance that does exactly what it’s designed to do.
