I would buy this product again!

About Me Casual Cook
I cook a lot of boiled eggs and had seen this product wondering if it really worked in the microwave. Cooking eggs in the microwave can be a disaster. They will explode or over cook making them tasteless and rubbery. Not so with this product. I use it all the time and love it!!

It's been 6 days since I placed my order for items listed as "in stock" but was told today it may be 2 more days. Lot's of excuses. Also, it said free shipping but I was billed for shipping. Don't think I will be ordering from here again.
Bottom LineNo, I would not recommend this to a friend
Fulfills my needs

The instructions are very confusing about the timing. After many trials and errors, I found 8 minutes at full (100%) power does it. I think my microwave is 1200 Watts. But you don't need to cut your power to 50% as the instructions say.It works great - eggs peel easily - I would recommend it to others - but not without telling them the timing and power usage.

NOT WHAT I EXPECTED...

Was not usable.....
We bought this to use in our RV. Used to use an electric hot plate. Took 30-40 min to hard boil some eggs and cool. Have used this 3 times to try it. 8 min in a microwave. Eggs are perfect and all have peeled very easily.Very happy we got it.You just let them cool. You don't have to run water over them.
I really enjoying it!

Excellent! Fast ConsistenHardboiled Eggs
By cluck cluck I'm in the hardboiled eggs
from puget sound, WA
I was initially disappointed as this egg cooker does not fit in Sharp microwave drawers. I had a small bowl that fits the egg tray and the top and this worked like a charm as it reduced the height of the cooker down 1 inch and made it fit my Sharp drawer microwave. This is the best and easiest hard boiled egg cooker that I have ssen. I can cook 1-4 eggs at a time and it takes so little time (less than boiling or stovetop steaming) it is not a problem if you have to do multiple runs to get enough eggs. All of the electric cookers do not have an automatic shut off and I was prone to setting up eggs to boil and then forgetting. I needed something that would stop cooking after a set period of time. This is perfect. Even if I forget, the worst that has happened is that the yolk gets slightly grey if left in the microwave overnight (I did mention I tend to forget). The instructions are not real clear but typical for microwaves you need to test for your wattage. After 4 runs, I settled on 7 min at power 6. I can do 1 or 4 eggs and get consistent results. After doing 6 dozen eggs I have had only 3 eggs crack and leak. Two of the eggs cracked in one run and then after 3 perfect runs I had another egg crack. Not a big deal. Unlike boiled or steamed eggs on the stove, the amount of the egg that seemed to escape was less and there was a very limited mess and I just eat these eggs first. Likely these eggs had micro-fractures. I've had batches of boiled and steamed eggs that had 30% of the batch break so 3/72 eggs with limited breakage I am convinced that this is a better way to steam hard boiled eggs. The metal insert discolors after a few rounds and I actually like my set up where I am not using the plastic bottom to hold the water but use a ceramic dish. The top is plastic with an internal metal liner so I am less concerned by using the plastic top. I have recommended this to others but have indicated that they should find a ceramic bowl to fit rather than using the plastic water reservoir. As opposed to makeing 8-12 hardboiled eggs at a time, I find myself making 1-2 hardboiled eggs to make egg salad sandwiches or to just have the eggs on hand. Definitely worth the cost and I would not hesitate to give as presents.

My family loves egg salad and this is such an easy way to make hard-boiled eggs. They're perfect every time and the shells come off so easily. So much better than boiling water on the stove.
