This is a great egg cooker! First, I wanted something small, easy to put away or stay on one's countertop without taking up much room. This fits the bill perfectly in that department. Then on to the cooking of eggs; this little champ does a perfect job each and every time. Comes with a water measuring cup and when the eggs are finished cooking, a buzz alarm lets you know.
It cooks seven eggs at a time and can cook up to four poached eggs. You simply can't beat this appliance for the price and I venture to say, even the more expensive brand couldn't do the job any better!

Hard boils and poaches eggs wonderfully. Easy to follow directions that yield wonderful results. Have to tinker with water levels when poaching, though; poaching two eggs with the recommended amount of water yields a hard yolk. Otherwise, it's perfect.

I bought this egg cooker because my old one (different brand, 15 years old) had a Teflon base and it had worn off in places. This one has a stainless steel base which is why I bought it. I love it! It cooks the eggs perfectly no matter whether I want hard-boiled or soft-boiled. I've used the poaching tray to make eggs for Eggs Benedict and it was great. The only problem I have with it is the big bulbous handle; I had to find a different place on my counter to keep it as it didn't fit in the small space my old one fit in because the handle sticks out too far.
One of the reviews said something about piercing the eggs?
The other question is whether you can adjust the length of time the cooker cooks? I own a Chef's Choice and it has a timer you can adjust depending how you like your eggs cooked.crigger on Oct 28, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Hello crigger, the eggs to not need to be pierced. The cooking time cannot be adjusted. It will automatically shut off when the eggs are done. Thank you for shopping with us! A.C.overstockcustomercare2 on Oct 29, 2014
The measuring cup for the water has a pin on the end of it which you use to pierce the eggs. If you don't pierce them one or more of them will most likely explode inside the cooker and that's a real mess! The cooking time is adjudictated by the amount of water you put into the cooker. When the water runs out the cooker shuts off automatically and the eggs are done exactly as desired. That was the way my old one (different brand) worked, too.judith on Dec 23, 2014
