I HAVE HAD THIS PRODUCT FOR ALMOST 2 YEARS..AND USE IT CONSTANTLY...WILL NEVER HARDBOIL EGGS ANOTHER WAY...SHELLS COME OFF EASILY...NO TEARING UP THE EGG AT ALL...WISH IT DID MORE EGGS THOUGH. TO CLEAN EASILY...PUT SMALL AMOUNT OF VINEGAR IN BOTTOM....STEAM LIKE EGGS...ETC YOU WILL ONLY NEED TO DO THIS ONCE IN A WHILE , AS RINSING AND WIPING DRY AFTER EACH USE WORKS WELL. IF I HAD THE MONEY...I WOULD BUY THIS PRODUCT FOR EACH OF MY GROWN CHILDREN AND MY FRIENDS...IT'S AN ANSWER TO THAT WHY DON'T THESE D%%%% EGGS PEEL RIGHT QUESTION. LOVE THIS PRODUCT!!!
I wanted a small countertop steamer for vegetables as the energy cost is less for an appliance than the stove; I was pleased to see this would boil eggs too, as I eat a lot of hardboiled eggs. It seems to need quite a bit more time (almost double) to cook vegetables. Having read reviews of this product on other sites it seems to work better with the water reservoir at the highest mark rather than at the fill line indicated. I still expect to use less energy than a stove, and the countertop footprint is quite small - those were my primary qualifications and are what I'm basing my "recommend" on. I haven't tried to use it for eggs yet; it's hard for me to imagine it will be able to cook eggs completely...maybe softboiled... Unlike my previous steamers, in this one the water actually goes inside the reservoir indicator but you can't really clean inside this area. I fear it's going to be kind of gross at some point. I will certainly rinse it promptly after use!
