About Me Casual Cook
Comments about Microwave Egg Boiler:
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.
Bottom LineYes, I would recommend this to a friend

Was not usable.....
Bottom LineNo, I would not recommend this to a friend
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!

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.

Works best with xl and smaller eggs.
from Gales Ferry Connecticut
The only comment I would add to the directions is to spray the dish with a cooking oil for easier cleanup and non sticking of the egg. Works great though.

My second order for this item.
from Texarkana, TX
I have reordered this item a second time -- for total of 8. I love the egg cooker so much that I wanted all of my friends to have one. Their feedback has been excellent!! The eggs not only cook quickly and evenly but, when peeling, the shells literally slip off. No more shells sticking to the egg whites.
