I looked for and found the Oster 4716 egg cooker here at Amazon but failed to read all the reviews. Big mistake! Someone else had already found out the Teflon coating in the poaching tray was at best a joke, if not defective. I would say we poach eggs 90% of the time and the Teflon coating is important, if you want an easy clean up. Oster had a good name and so I took it on trust they would make a good product.
The cooking method for boiled eggs in their shells with this cooker is fine; I think any cooker on the market should be able to do that. Hence it got 2 stars
We prefer to poach eggs and that is the big disappointment with this unit. The Teflon coating on the poaching tray feels and looks like mat black paint and not Teflon. It is even rough to the feel and that was the first tell. The eggs vulcanized to this coating and even after 5 minuets of hard scrubbing with very hot water and dish soap, a thin film of egg white was still stuck to the tray. Teflon in the normal sense of the word, this is not!
I hate to give a negative review and I do so in the hope I can save someone the disappointment I now feel.
Just very disappointed with this purchase, it was supposed to be easy clean up but turned out to be just an advertising myth. Take my advice and buy someone else's product and read all the reviews before you buy. This is one egg cooker you do not need.
We have had this Egg cooker for 2 year now and as long as you don't mind greasing the poaching plate with butter before you put the eggs in it, it then works as it was possibly designed. The eggs will slid out without any effort and the clean up is easy. I had hoped not to have to go through this ritual before each cooking but it is the only way to remove the eggs from the cooker and not have then vulcanize to the cooking tray. Get the water amount right by using the marked levels in the base and it will make good poaches eggs, every time.
+ Perfect soft-boiled eggs, something most egg cookers don't do well
+ Perfect hard boiled eggs
+ Poaches well as well
+ Poaching trays are slightly larger than competing cookers
+ base fairly easy to clean, a few newer models are easier
ProTip - for those who can't get perfect soft-boiled eggs: you have to take the top off and get the eggs out immediately when the cooker stops. I use a spoon, drop them in a bowl of cold water, let cool slightly, then roll on center until the shell cracks open and you can peel it apart in two pieces.
+ egg cooking piece hard to keep clean
+ Unit stops working relatively easily (as many reviewers noted)
As many reviewers noted this unit may stop working early on. However, it is easy to fix. There is a latch that runs out of lubricant, and mildly corrodes.
If your ON/OFF button on this unit stops working -- this is probably the issue. To fix:
Remove the one center screw on the device, open it, and then clean and lubricate the latch until and smoothly catches and releases. Do not over lubricate or you may fry the electronics. Silica powder can prevent this as well.
If this were not the best egg cooker I own - I would only give it 3 stars or less for the reliability failures. But, I keep it running, simply because it works so well.
You can put in lots of eggs at once--- More than enough for 3 people. Great for salads, breakfast... etc. You decide how you like your eggs-- hard, or easy... Then you fill up the water line (using a glass, as the instructions say not to place under the faucet) that matches your goal. I like my eggs cooked very very well--- so the line inside the cooker (and the directions that I can now toss because the instructions will always be there) says to fill to the outside line. I did--- put in my eggs-- put the lid on-- pushed the button and did my own things until they were complete. They came out PERFECT.
I cleaned the yellow remains with a paper towel. I just wiped it off. I don't know if thats right-- but I figured the devise wasn't supposed to get wet from the faucet-- so I'd use the towel.
I did not try the sunny side up egg thing-- I think they're gross. But it seems that that accessory is easy to clean. You can probably stick it in the dish washer. It's resembles a small metal plate with four sections.
