Keep your burners free and your eggs from overcooking with this countertop egg cooker. The cooker poaches up to four large eggs and soft-boils or hard-boils up to seven at a time. A built-in timer adjusts automatically to soft or hard settings and buzzes loudly enough to draw you in from the garden when the eggs are done. Soft-boiled eggs come out with a perfectly half-cooked center, while the white is cooked solid. Omelets come out in little serving-sized shapes and transfer to the plate without a mess. This cooker cleans up easily, but don't immerse it in water. --Shannon Borg

Despite the negative reviews posted, I ordered this egg cooker. This little gem is great, and performs just as described (if you read the instructions first). Use this once and you'll find any measuring references you may need in the future are as easy as looking at the embosed pictures on the water beaker. As far as not having all sorts of adjustments, who needs them ? Your just cooking an egg! An On and off switch is fine with me. I suppose the manufacturer could have added a bunch of extras, but all this would do is increase the price, and increase the odds of having a part fail. The buzzer sounds loud enough to let you know to tend to your heat producing, electric appliance. Obviously the manufacturer placed it's concern for my safety before my comfort level with the buzzers sound level, a much appreciated feature. If this buzzer upsets you to the point of nervous shaking,(as a few reviewers reported), I think you may need something more than a hard boiled egg, lol. I was surprised with all the gripes,that no one complained that it didn't peel the egg for them. The Egghead is very compact, truly an appliance that won't gobble up your precious counter space. Its round shape is about the size of cantaloupe melon and rests on three small feet that keep it very steady. It's attached power cord is a generous 36 inches long. As for the under twenty dollar price that Amazon sells this for, how can you go wrong? Go ahead and order one, it's unique, convenient, and fun.

I live at an elevation of 4500 feet and maybe because of this, I have never been able to properly boil an egg in the conventional way. But this little cooker makes perfect hard-boiled eggs every time! I add a little extra water to compensate for the low boiling point at this elevation.

The best things about the eggs are the perfect consistency of white and yolk, no green scum aroung the yolk, and easy peeling. The shell practically comes off by itself!

The best things about the cooker are:

1. How easy it is to start the cooking process (measure and add the water, place the eggs in the cooker and pierce the top, put on the lid, press the On button). Couldn't be simpler.

2. The excellent eggs.

3. Easy cleanup (rinse the tray and lid, wipe out the interior of cooker). Easiest cleanup of all of my small kitchen appliances.

About the buzzer: I think they made it loud because the eggs should be rinsed with cold water after cooking (although I forgot to do that the first time I used the cooker, and the eggs turned out perfectly anyway), and also for safety reasons.

Here is a suggestion for folks who are worried about the loud buzzer or about the safety aspect: Plug the cooker into an electric timer that will shut off the power to the cooker. You can set the timer to turn off the cooker shortly before the buzzer goes off or shortly after. I use a Gra-Lab darkroom timer, but a digital timer like the ones sold at Radio Shack would work great. You can also use the timer for other small kitchen appliances that don't automatically shut off.

I got this mainly to poach eggs, and in that respect it seems to work rather well. With the exception of the fact that it took me 20+ minutes to figure out the best way to set the poaching trays in the cooker. They're still not in there in the truest sense of the word "secure". The instruction manual has no pictures, so you just have to rather guess in this regard.
It cooks the eggs by heating some water you measure and place in the base of the cooker with a special provided measuring device (shot-glass looking thing) which doubles as the egg piercing device when you turn it upside down (which might be rather dangerous if you have children who might get their mits on it). The cooker seems to pay attention to how hot the water is and buzz when it hits a certain temperature; it's not time based.
In this regard it works at what it's supposed to do well. It cooks the eggs very well and to just the right consistency when making poached eggs. I've also made a hard boiled egg in it and that worked fine as well. However just exactly how much water you put in isn't specified for anything except one sample. For instance, on poached eggs, 2 med. eggs is supposed to take a #5 of water, but if you're doing large eggs, you have to guess how much more water that would be.
The largest problem with this cooker (As other's have mentioned) is the alarm when the eggs are done. I swear deaf people can hear this thing it so loud. I really think they use old fire alarms from high schools. You cannot make eggs for breakfast in bed without waking up the person in bed, even if they're on the other side of the house. My car horn isn't as loud.... (I'm not exaggerating...)
I too, suggest you keep looking, unless your deaf. Although it makes good eggs, the other flaws outweigh that plus in this device.

Egg head is fantastic! On my first try, my eggs were the most perfectly boiled eggs I've ever seen. No cracking or discolored green yolks. It's easy. As far as it not turning itself off, I would think the eggs would continue to cook. That's why you run them under water, to stop the cooking process, not just to cool them for peeling! I've read some complaints about the poached eggs being shaped like eyes. I think it's a pretty cool shape. The buzzer is loud, but I found that useful too. I love mine and hope it lasts well. I would buy this for anyone who loves boiled eggs without the hassel.
