What a delight it is to know that I can have hardboiled or poached eggs any time I want, with almost no effort, and no supervision. You can put your eggs in the machine when you wake up, go upstairs to shower, and never worry about it, because the machine shuts off by itself when it's done. Hardboiled eggs are done perfectly every time. Moreover, if you want to have hardboiled eggs without the bother of taking off the shell, you can just put four eggs into the poaching tray and fill to the hardboil mark.

The eggs will come out a funny shape, but unless we're making devilled eggs, we don't care.

There's only one disadvantage to this machine, and that is that you can't just dump the whole thing into the dishwasher. Sulfer tends to be released from the eggs and stick on the machine and you have to wipe that off regularly by hand. It can get a little dirty. But that's the worst thing I can say about this machine.

Simply put, this makes our lives easier for a very modest price. I never thought I needed an egg cooker before, but now that I have one, I'll never go back.

We received an Oster egg cooker as a wedding gift many years ago and used it frequently, especially for poached eggs. When the Teflon wore out, we were unable to find this product on the market. We tried other egg cookers/poachers which were adequate, but we always wanted another Oster. When we found that amazon.com was offering this product, we ordered it. I boils up to 8 eggs and poaches up to 4 eggs. This is a wonderful little appliance that is easy to operate and is easy to clean.

This is a very easy to use and functional machine. Whether you want soft/hard "boiled eggs" or poached the egg cooker does the job.
Pros:
Small size
Great eggs
Easy to use
Quick
Cons:
Parts and unit are not dishwasher safe
No finish bell (but the click the button makes is fairly loud)
Poached egg tray has to be coated with butter/oil/Pam with every use-should have been teflon coated

This egg cooker is great. I use it frequently. It hardboils eggs perfectly and the shells slide right off. No more shells stuck to egg. Also, it poaches eggs perfect, never over cooked. Clean-up is a breeze, no mess, no pots. I highly recommend this item.

So many people don't know what they're missing! This is a FABULOUS product! I had a Sunbeam egg cooker for over 20 years, which finally died. I searched high and low for the exact same cooker and this product was the closest, well actually the same product but with improvement. I really like the automatic shut off feature. This was very important to me, as I'm not one to stand around to watch eggs cook! I like the see-through lid. If you want to watch, you can tell if the poached eggs are almost done or not. And let me tell you about the poached eggs this cooker makes - YUM! Cooks them perfectly! IF I wanted the poached egg yolks real runny, I could add less water and IF I wanted the poached eggs cooked with totally solid yolk, I could add more water slightly over the fill level. The water fill levels are easy - no measuring cups needed. The only feature I miss is being able to unplug the cord from the unit to store inside, but, oh well!

Again, I love this unit! I even travel with it. I highly recommend it.

I may be biased towards the Sunbeam/Oster name, mostly because I have a family history with the company going back decades.

I am not a fan of eggs per se. However, the wife and kids are big fans of eggs. As a matter of fact they would eat eggs with every meal if they could.

The problem we faced was that since I don't ever eat eggs, I don't know a thing about cooking them. And my wife is a self admitted 'Non-Cook' when it comes to just about ANYTHING!

We began the test run of our new Oster 4716 Egg Cooker with the Hard Boiled eggs.

With the easy to follow instructions, not only in the booklet, but actually ON the product too, it was a snap!

According to the Mrs. the eggs came out to total perfection. Just soft enough in all the right areas...which I guess is the whole thing.

With the soft boiled eggs, there was again perfection. My wife hadn't eaten eggs cooked this way in quite some time, but enjoyed them none the less.

The poached eggs were the kids favorite! With a piece or two of toast, the kids called them the best 'dippy eggs ever!'

To top the whole experience off, the cook time was relatively short.

I don't remember the exact amount of time it took to cook each one, but the wonderful thing about this product is that it is all automatic! When the eggs were done cooking, the light in front went off, and the click at the perfect pitch let the household know their snack/breakfast was ready and waiting!

Another awesome thing that Oster does is put easy and delicious recipies in the instructions for some even better meals!

Needless to say, I'm highly reccomending this product. For the price, you honestly can't go wrong, especially when it makes your life a whole lot easier!

This egg cooker was a true delight for several months, and was used about every other week. It was highly efficient, made eggs perfectly, and was reasonably easy to clean. Its use was as recommended by the manual.

Then, two days ago the house filled with the stench of melting plastic. When it was traced back to the egg cooker, it appeared switched off but was in fact burning into overdrive. The plastic canopy had melted like Dali's clocks, and begun to sag over some hard boiled eggs left from the night before. I unplugged the cooker, and discovered that the canopy had melted into the base and was fastened tight.

Not only was it completely ruined, but if this had happened when no one was at home, it might have even burned down the house!

In spite of all of this device's very positive qualities, this is clearly a fatal flaw and cannot be recommended. Oster should recall this model and overhaul the design for safety purposes.
