I just got my egg cooker and am so excited! The hard cooked eggs peeled perfectly (even got my husband excited about it). You do have to clean the hot plate portion each time to eliminate minerals that could discolor the eggs, but that isn't hard. I researched this item pretty well before buying it. I read that some people had a little trouble with poached eggs (it's made for medium eggs) not cooking all the way through, but I don't plan to cook poached eggs anyhow. If you do, just buy medium eggs. I do wish the done alarm was a little louder, but I just set another timer and keep an ear out for it. We will definitely be cooking more eggs. My husband is eager to try it out for an egg salad sandwich. Now, we just need more eggs! And of course, Overstock got me the item in less than one week!
This egg cooker does excellent job. I've had it for 2 month and it's working great. It's small enough to store it in my bottom cabinet where I can reach it easiy and often. I like the shape and the over-all look of the product and it's so easy to clean! I highly recommend this to anyone. It's a great product!
Long wanting a better way to boil eggs, I jumped at the chance for a quality product name and performance at a reasonable price. Although factory reconditioned, the cooker looks sleek and occupies minimal room. It takes a while to absorb how to use the product from instructions. In early uses I found two concerns. First, the feature for puncturing an egg prior to cooking with a sharp pinpoint in the little measuring cup did not work effectively for me, destroying a couple eggs before I gave up trying. Second, although I was careful to choose the correct amount of water for the load of eggs I wanted to boil, the desired hard boiled eggs come out slightly undercooked. While this did not render the eggs unusable, it was a disappointment for one who wants eggs cooked through and through. Nevertheless, for the price, the unit offers a much easier boiling option than a bubbling kettle on the stove.
I read the other reviews and decided to give it a try. My 5 year old can eat his weight in hard boiled eggs and I always seemed to overcook them. They came out perfect the first time! Would definitely recommend this product. It is small and doesn't take up much space at all.
This product worked great in the beginning but after about a month, it would leak every time I used it. In the beginning the eggs came out perfect but as the leak increased the consistency of the eggs declined. Great idea but isn't worth the counter space in the end.

This makes the perfect egg! I bought it just to add to my Cuisinart [toy] collection. It does the job just right. The audio timer is a great reminder that you have something cooking. I didn't notice any "egg" smell in the house, what a bonus! Great gift idea for those who have 2 of everything!
Great device! Simple.. so simple my hubby who claims he can't figure out our Grind and Brew does his own eggs every morning. Perfect size for storing and simple to use. We made all our Easter Eggs (7 at a time!) and it was so nice to not waste any eggs from cracking.
The egg cooker was nice and just as advertised. The shipping was very quick. The only problem was that when it arrived, the bottom half of the cooker has a curved "s" shape in the steel on the front side...The box was a LITTLE bent, but don't know if it came that way from the warehouse or was a result of shipping. It does work perfectly.
I love this appliance. It makes med/soft eggs perfect without fail. You don't have to keep an eye on a timer as it alerts you when done. I haven't made poached yet so i cannot comment on how they come out. The only problem i have with cooker is that the egg tray warped after one use. This is made of plastic and should be made of someother material that can withstand the heat. It does not affect the performance or the look of the egg cooker. Overstock shipping was fast. Thank you
