I AM re-buying multiples of this product!!

About Me Avid Cook
I am re-buying this as a gift for my youngest daughter who has moved out on her own so she won't have to borrow mine now every time she hard boils all the Easter Eggs for my granddaughters, as that was her job while she was at home and she knows how easy it was with this little appliance. Also, when we make Deviled Eggs, the ONLY time it's REALLY important that the Whites of the eggs can be peeled smoothly so that they are presentable on the platter, ONCE AGAIN, this Small, Inexpensive EGG Shaped Appliance is indispensable for that purpose in your kitchen. Through the years, I have tried Every other method suggested by Everyone, including Martha Stewart, Hints from Heloise, & Paula Dean, etc. etc., to get good results - even JUST to get eggs to peel Easily, much less flawlessly!! Here are my best Never FAIL hints: I always start out with Room Temperature eggs as I only hard boil eggs in-mass, not just for 1 or 2 in the morning for breakfast, so I plan ahead, they also say at least week old eggs peel better, but I don't always have that luxury. Room temp eggs keep them from exploding or cracking inside the cooker from the extreme temperature difference for such a long cooking time. My microwave is 1000 Watt so I cook 4 Large - XLarge eggs for 6 1/2 - 7 minutes and then they sit sometimes with the lid on for a while, sometimes not, cuz I don't peel them for a while anyway, but you can drop them in cold water after a while if you are in a hurry to peel, if desired. Pop them on the "larger bottom" of the egg on your drainboard as there is an air space there, and then all around the rest of the egg, and then it allows you to grab that space of cracked shell and started peeling. Also, if you peel your eggs under a slow stream of running water so as to keep the shell and eggs moist, it will help keep the whites intact, so they look nice, and make them SO much Easier to peel. Believe me, I've tried EVERYTHING Else!! When removing EGG Appliance from Microwave with potholders, Always lift from bottom half of Egg, cuz top half does Not have to be securely snapped on & just practice good sense! Everything is HOT, including eggs inside! I'm ordering myself another one so that I can have it ready & waiting to put in the microwave at Easter when dyeing many eggs for the Easter Rabbit & Thanksgiving for lots of good Deviled Eggs!!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Don't know what u want.
Very quick and easy!
Perfect results in 7 minutes for soft-boiled eggs!
from Phoenix, Arizona
I cook only 2 room temperature large eggs at a time, one on each side of the cooker tray. Four minutes and 30 seconds on high in a 1000 watt microwave, let sit 2 minutes, use silicon tipped tongs to lift cooker top off and set on other side of oven or lift out, gently use tongs to lift eggs into bowl, run under cold water 30 seconds, peel and eat two perfect eggs--soft warm yolks, firm whites. Yum!
easy too use.

The instructions could be better. After trial and error I am able to make perfect hard boiled eggs. For two eggs in a 1,000 watt microwave, cook on high for seven minutes, then leave in oven for another ten minutes. The instructions kind of say that, but not directly.

It is a quick way to have a boil egg. I use this egg boiler for the microwave and it is very handy.

I like to have boiled eggs in my fridge. It's easy to have egg salad quickly. No pots to lift fill or empty.

How to use this product:
from Corona, CA
How it cooks and how long depends on your microwave not the product. I have a small 700 Watt microwave so Hard boiled eggs for me will be 15 minutes and 8 minutes for soft boiled. I've used this for a long time and love it.
