If you're a fancy hors d'oeurves maker/party host, these eggs to not come out perfectly oval. There is a dip in the one side as the egg contents settles to the bottom of the standing egg. Nor do they peel easy. Even rinsing or soaking in freezing water right after. It does not help the shell loosen and peel nicely. Every time, I probably ripped off about a quarter of the white part that would not come apart from the shell without a fight.
If you don't care how pretty they are, or how they turn out because you like eggs every which way, then you might like this contraption. It works, just not at all how I'd hoped. I would not buy again.
I quickly ordered one and was back in bliss. It works fairly well and does what it says it will do at a price I can live with.
It does have a few things that I need to complain about. First, whenever you boil eggs, some mysterious brownish stain is left on the bottom of the egg cooker. It is a bit unsightly and I have no idea what it comes from. Second the egg genie comes with a great little cup with many markers on it to tell you exactly how much water is needed to cook your eggs for soft boiled, medium or hard boiled. This is supposed to lead to the perfectly cooked egg per each style. I believe this is however fine tuned to large eggs. I do not buy large eggs. I buy extra jumbo eggs. When I tried to use the water markers for my extra jumbo large egg it was a underdone. I helped combat this by leaving the eggs covered a while after the buzzer goes off.
I think I paid around $17 for mine but $20 isn't outlandish. The unit fits up to 7 eggs and is so easy my 9 year old daughter uses it to make snacks when she gets out of school. The only downside is that it doesn't automatically turn off.
The instructions are very easy. Take the included cup and fill it up to the mark for the number of eggs being cooked (1-7) and pour it in the metal base. Then place the plastic tray on top and use the needle attached to poke a hole on the top of each egg so steam can escape safely and place the egg in the tray. Plug in and wait 10-15 minutes for the unit to beep. Unplug and let sit for about a minute or two and then dump the eggs into a tray of ice water (last step is optional but will prevent greening of the yolk).
Making hard-boiled eggs is easy but it requires dishes and more time than it would with the egg genie. This easter we went to Costco and picked up 2 18packs of extra large eggs (which fit in the Egg Genie). Making deviled eggs has NEVER been as easy as it was this year. While we were making one batch, the other was cooking, and in about an hour we'd cooked 3-4 batches and had 72 deviled eggs ready for the family.
Even better was that all 72 eggs had perfect centers and I never once had to worry about things being overcooked or undercooked. You simply set and forget. I've also never had an easier time peeling eggs than I did with the Egg Genie. The hole you poke in each egg allows a bubble of sorts to form between the shell and egg making it super easy to spoon eggs out with little to no mess.
The obvious benefit here is how little work it is to make eggs, especially when you just want one. If you find yourself in the kitchen craving a snack, cook an egg or two up and fill up on quality protein and not simple carbs.
Liked the unit so much I bought an extra for my elderly mother. Being older, making quality food is a chore. Now I can be assured she's getting healthier options instead of cereals and snacks. Great for the college kid, adults, younger kids who want to start practicing in the kitchen, etc.
In any event, this one had relatively good reviews and I'm happy with mine. It's basically a hot plate that steams water until it evaporates with the eggs covered with a plastic cover. An alarm sounds when the water is gone and cooking is therefore done. Cooking time is controlled by how much water you add. An auto shut-off rather than (or in addition to) and alarm would have been nice, but so far we have had no problems turnig the device off. It takes about 20 minutes to hard cook 6 eggs. The cooking is precise and the eggs are easy to peal. There is no extra water or broken shells as with pots on the stove, and the time cook is reduced by about half. The device suggests you prick the shell of each egg with a pin (included). I'm not sure what this does but it's easy to do and the eggs have cooked well so I'll keep it up. On the whole, for not a lot of money, this is a useful device that justifies its cabinet space.
