Product Description

Amazon.com

Poach one or two eggs, create fluffy individual omelets, or cook up to six soft-, medium-, or hard-boiled eggs with this electric cooker, which actually uses steam to cook the food. A measuring cup (with a built-in egg piercer) is included--fill it with water to the appropriate level for the number of eggs you want to cook and how well done you want them, then pour the water into the nonstick heating vessel. Eggs for poaching and omelets go into D-shaped pans, while whole eggs rest on a rack. Put the clear domed lid on top and turn the dial to one of two cook settings: "silent" (you have to time the cooking) or "buzzer," which alerts you when the food is done. Clean the plastic parts in warm, sudsy water, and wipe the unit clean with a damp cloth. For compact storage, the power cord winds into a track underneath the 7-1/2-by-4-1/2-inch unit. --Dale Steinke

Well, not only does it make perfect, easy to peel harboilied eggs, but it also makes PERFECT soft boiled eggs.

The buzzer is sufficiently loud to alert you to when the eggs are done.

This is a common device in Europe--boiled eggs are a staple in Germany and the egg cooker delivers a reliable result without the trouble of standing over a boiling pot, calculating when the water boiled, how many eggs are in the pot, looking at a sandglass and using a sextant and barometer (ok, I exaggerate. You don't really need the sextant and barometer to make a proper soft-boiled egg.)
The Salton cooker has a nice egg rack that lifts out when the eggs are done. You can take the boiled eggs to the sink to cool them in water (halts the cooking, keeps you from burning your fingers.) The settings, however, are different than European. Soft is medium-soft (white done, yolk liquid) medium is a medium hard yolk, and hard is the harboildegg for picnics and salads. (Some European models have a soft setting that is a very liquid egg such as you'd use in Caesar salad dressing. This model does not have that setting.) This cooker will handle up to six eggs and comes with a water measure that has a piercing spike on the bottom in an egg-shaped depression. The egg fits in there for piercing the shell lightly, which is supposed to keep the shell from cracking uncontrollably during cooking.
Warning: the top gets VERY hot during use, so lift it off by the small end over the handle ONLY. There is an alarm to alert you when it's done, and an on-off-warm switch. All in all, a great device--well designed, compact and useful.

No more under or over cooked hard boiled eggs. This egg cooker makes perfect eggs. No more guess work of "are my eggs done yet?" It also makes great poached or scrambled egg omelets. It is quick and so much easier to use than hauling out the sauce pan filling it with water and waiting for everything to boil. Clean up is a breeze. It's small size does not take up a lot of room on your counter either. I highly recommend this product.

We purchased one of these a little while ago, and have really enjoyed it. This little appliance boils up to 6 eggs, and poaches up to 2 eggs. It will buzz to let you know when your eggs are done. Quite a bargain...0!

I bought this egg cooker to eat healthier. I find it GREAT. it is just the right size, and makes the eggs perfectly. I poach, and scramble eggs in it all the time. If you want a nice little egg cooker, I really suggest investing in this fine product.

I have soft-boiled, medium-boiled, hard-boiled, and poached eggs using this egg cooker. Unlike one reviewer, I found the water measurer easy to read and use. Perhaps they have changed its design, or something, since that review was written. The egg pricker is nicely recessed at the bottom of the water measurer, perfect for pricking the bottoms of your eggs prior to hard-, soft-, or medium- "boiling" them, but recessed sufficiently so that you shouldn't accidentally prick yourself if you aren't careless with it. I use canola oil on the non-stick surface after every use, as is recommended in the manual that comes with it. Oiling keeps the surface from developing a hard-water mineral build up. All of my eggs have turned out wonderfully, with the one exception of the time I forgot to prick the bottom of an egg, and it "exploded" in the cooker. I ended up with a kind of poached egg--it was edible, but I had to clean up quite a mess in the cooker. The buzzer is sufficiently loud to alert you to when the eggs are done. It does not have an auto-off feature, which might make the Oster cooker, which my sister has, a better choice if you tend to walk off and leave things cooking and you might not be in a place where you can hear the buzzer--which goes off continually until you turn the cooker off or turn it to just "cook" (which I am not sure why you use, unless you didn't want to wake a sleeper in the next room--you'd have to watch the cooker to turn it off once the water had all boiled away). I really like this compact little cooker, and would recommend it.Read more ›

I make a mean egg, tunafish,and macaroni salad, mixed with diced green peppers and some slices of onion, as well. But to get it right you need great hard boiled eggs, which for aklutz like me is the single hardest part of the cooking process. But with this handy device, one get get great boiled eggs with very little trouble or spoilage.
That said, the egg cooker produces a reliable result without having to wartch the pot boil, so to speak, or having to resort to calculating as to when the water is boiling, or how many eggs to drop in the pot to get the number you need, etc. Instead, it is a simple, straightforward and stress-free process, one that even an old mountain man like me can master.
It also has some neat features, like an egg rack that lifts out when the eggs are done. You can then place the cooked eggs in cool water to complete the process. The cooker handles up to six eggs and also features a water measure with a piercing spike on the bottom, form-fitted with an egg depression. This serves to keep the egg from cracking during the boiling process. All in all, this is a handy, useful, and relatively simple device to use. Enjoy!
