NordicWare's handy Microware TM series for the microwave gives home chefs the tools they need for clean, lean, and fast cooking. This unique egg boiler safely prepares up to four hard- or soft-boiled eggs within its own white, oval shell. To use, simply place whole eggs into the little grooves of the interior perforated shelf (piercing not required), then put on the top and cook. No more hot water and delicate maneuvering to keep the delicate goods intact! The plastic boiler is high-heat tolerant and goes conveniently into the dishwasher. --Kara Karll

After reading the reviews for this egg boiler I was concerned. I filled up the lower portion to the fill line with tap water, put four eggs on the tray, snapped on the lid, turned on the microwave, hid in the other room, and waited for the eggs to explode. But alas, no explosion!
I love soft boiled eggs but they are tough to get right. I got it right on the third time with this. The first time I did the microwave on high for 5 minutes (I did not trust the directions). Runny whites - tough to peel.
The second time I followed the directions and tried 6 minutes. Almost but the whites were still a little runny.
The third time I tried going with the directions. Hey, guys are hard headed. 8 minutes on high, let the boiler sit for 2 minutes, took the boiler out of the microwave with oven mitts (it was hot), and put the eggs in cold water to stop the cooking. The eggs were perfect. Easy to peel and cooked just right. Now I can make soft boiled eggs easy, every time.
I'm not sure why anyone would need to wash this thing. The steam generated during cooking will kill anything. So I am not worried about rubbing off the metal coating as others have written about.
For those who have experienced the dreaded explosion - this is not the fault of the egg boiler. A little internet research shows that boiling water in a microwave can (on very rare occasions) create an explosion. The solution: put some salt and a toothpick in the bottom of the egg boiler. The salt and toothpick will help the water to boil. Otherwise, the water may not boil, become "superheated" and then go boom. The boiling breaks the surface tension of the water and prevents the boom.
For soft boiled eggs in a pot I would put water in a pot, bring the pot to a boil (15 minutes), boil for two minutes, drain, and fill the pot with cold water. Total time about 20 minutes (after peeling). With this thing it only took 12 minutes and no mess.
I also want to echo what others have written about microwaved food. A microwave does not "nuke" your food. A microwave "excites" the water molecules which create heat. The table turns in the microwave to create even heating. Microwaved food is safe. If you are really concerned about cooking yourself from the inside out from standing in front of the microwave (as if this could really happen), get yourself a 5 dollar leak detector to calm your anxiety. The microwaves are contained within the appliance. Of course if your microwave is broken, I wouldn't use it. Otherwise you might become a Darwin Award winner.
